Cheers! The Best Beers On Your Travels

Even though it's taking it's time weather-wise, the summer is finally upon us. This means that pubs and their beer gardens will soon be packed to the rafters with us punters looking for that post-work and weekend refreshment at the bottom of a pint glass. So if you fancy getting away, here's where you might want to wet your whistle.

Berlin, Germany

It just wouldn't be right to discuss beer without mentioning Germany, the birthplace of beer. If you're feeling fed up of mass-produced beers found in every pub from London to Lancashire then Berlin may well be the place for you. If you so choose, you could be one of around 800,000 people to descend on the city for it's famous beer festival in August. Even if you don't, you'll be spoilt for choice for watering holes and locally brewed pale, wheat and dark beers. You'll be in good company with the locals as well, there are few better places for socialising than in a traditional drinking hall. Purse your lips around a refreshing Berliner Weisse for real treat!

Prague, Czech Republic

Cheap, tasty and a decent chance of a good view to accompany it, beer in Prague will deliver a fine experience. Enjoy picturesque views of the Vltava River in one of many bars and pubs flanking it, or you can even take a boat or a pedalo out and enjoy a beer on it. Pilsner Urquel, Kozel and Budvar will be your staples throughout your stay and drinking it half a litre at a time should give you enough opportunity to savour each beer. The pubs that remain tend to be old, traditional ones filled will locals who fancy a tipple and they usually have a great atmosphere that you'll most certainly enjoy.

New York City, USA

Perhaps a surprise entry on this list, but there's more to beer in the USA than just Bud Lights in the hands of American Football fans. In fact, craft beer is rife in NYC and particularly so in Brooklyn. Sorachi Ace is a spectacular golden ale brewed in the area which has a delightful smell to compliment it's taste. Now, every February the city hosts it's Beer Week with city-wide events, parties and even conferences to celebrate the drink. Beer bars are flourishing in the area too, with long bars lined with stools and countless taps serving traditional bar grub and a smorgasbord of independent beers.
