    I guess it is Auburn. My buddy lives in Rocklin/Loomis and I didn't realize how far away it was from there.

    Do you mean literally just off the highway or just in the vicinity. Because very few of the ones that have been listed so far are not right off the highway. Many of them require you to get off I-80 and travel at least 15-minutes (probably more) from the highway.

    In the Bay Area (if you do 580-101-80):
    Temescal Brewing (Oakland)
    Ghosttown Brewing (Oakland)
    Novel Brewing (Oakland)

    In the Bay Area (if you do 24-680-80):
    E.J. Phair (Concord)

    In the Sacramento/Auburn Area:
    Device Brewing (Sac)
    Loomis Basin (Loomis)
    Crooked Lane (Auburn)
    Auburn Ale Works (downtown Auburn)
    Moonraker (Auburn)
    Knee Deep (Auburn, across the street from Moonraker)

    If you are into a "quick" detour on I-50 in Sacramento (you will be able to reconnect with Business 80 and then 80 proper):
    Jack Rabbit Brewing (West Sac)
    New Glory (Sac)

    In the Grass Valley Area (about a 30-minute detour off of I-80, but you could hit Crooked Lane, Auburn Aleworks, Moonraker, and Knee Deep, then take 49 to Grass Valley and then take 20 back to 80):
    Ol' Republic

    In the Tahoe Area:
    Truckee Brewing (Truckee)
    Tahoe Mountain Brewing (Truckee)
    Fifty/Fifty (Truckee)
    Alibi Ale (taproom in Truckee)

    In the Reno Area:
    Brewers Cabinet (Reno)
    Brasserie Saint James (Reno)
    10Torr (Reno)
    Revision (Sparks)
    (there are something in the neighborhood of 13 breweries in Reno/Sparks, but the ones I listed are the ones I like...the others I have felt that their beer is lacking for my taste).

    If time is not an issue.

    Bells in kalamazoo, MI is an hour north of I80.
    Founders in Grand Rapids is another 30 min north of that.
    Brewery vivant in Grand Rapids is worth checking out too.

    Ruby Mountain Brewing in Elko... haven't been but will hit it next time I pass by.

    That's not in Elko. There used to be a brewery based out of Matties, but it is no longer.

    Thunderhead Brewery in Kearney NE. Never been myself but my parents stop there most every time they drive IL->NE and seem to enjoy it. Pretty sure they have food too.

    Any camping or hotels nearby? I’ll need to park a UHaul for the night in June.

    Never been myself, but I'm sure there are. The town is sort of a tourist destination

    At this rate you'll need Morgan Freeman and a Holiday Inn Express priority card.

    In SLC, there are a few (yes its 3.2 if its on tap but we still have good beer). Right off of I80 you have Fisher brewing, TF brewing, Shades of Pale, and Squatters all within walkable distance of each other.

    An absolute, can't miss. Since 1988, and consistently one of America's best:
    Great Lakes Brewing Company

    I still call it The Jake.

    The Cleveland Great Lakes Brewery is listed above already. There is North Country Brewing Company – Slippery Rock, PA not very far off I-80. Also Blue Canoe in Titusville, PA. (about an hour off of I-80 north). But they just announced it was closing and another area brewery is going to remodel and open up in the same location. The one replacing it is Lavery Brewing with a second location, (it will be July according to the releases that they hope to finish remodeling, so timing of the trip may matter)....

    Again depending on the "distance" off I-80 you want to venture and timing north of Slippery Rock is Voodoo Brewery in Meadville, PA (about 40 minutes from I-80) and then you could east to Titusville (going from west to east and New Jersey)....
