The road trip is a rite of passage in America, often done to take in the many majestic sights of the country, but if Nathan Yau of data visualization blog FlowingData has his way, road-trippers might soon be seeing these sights through a very thick pair of beer goggles. Taking RateBeer‘s annual list of the world’s best breweries, Yau plotted the 70 American entries onto a map of the nation before plotting the most algorithmically efficient route to visit all of them in the least number of miles possible. Totaling to 197 hours of drive time covering 12,299 miles across 40 states, Yau estimates that it will take you 20 days to complete this epic road trip. Check the map out and start packing, because all the planning has already been done for you.
