NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- If the folks who love beer didn't seek out new styles and new places to enjoy them, the craft beer movement of the past few decades just wouldn't exist.

We knew this when we pointed out five hidden craft beer vacation destinations in June and just waited for more suggestions to pour in from across the country. In less than a day, readers and beer fans had given us enough for another list.

In a country with more than 2,500 breweries, according to the Brewers Association craft beer industry group, there are bound to be more than a few far-flung gems. Even the fairly obvious locations have been enough to fill up not one list of craft beer vacation destinations, but follow-up lists of both regions and cities where vacationing craft beer drinkers could grab some sampling flights. Besides, why limit yourself to the 10 best brewpubs in America when there are brewpubs in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., worth visiting?

This is going to be the last such travelogue we put together for a while, as the results are getting just a bit esoteric. While we'd love to feature every brewery, brewpub and beer festival around, the following five spots are places where either the beer or the location itself is fairly tucked away. We're still open to suggestion, but these five should be able to tide you over until next summer:
