Re: Travelogue: Georgia (the country)

Thanks for the detailed notes. We've been considering this trip. A friend runs some photo tours, and he just added Georgia & Armenia. Would probably have gone this year except it overlaps the Chicago Marathon. We may go with him next year. Here is a link to his tour: https://photoenrichment.com/trea...

Went with brother in-law and his son. We each bought a 3-glass sampler and shared all 9 beers. Good stuff. One of my new favs in the Chicago area.
