If you’ve ever sat in the tasting room of Cantillon, you’ve witnessed it: the giddiness of a beer traveler who’s dreamt of ducking those famous cobwebs in person, finally crossing off a big-ticket bucket-list item. As if that list wasn’t long enough, author Stephen Beaumont has a few more suggestions. Not just Germany’s Oktoberfest, but Belgium’s Kerstbierfestival, too. He whisks the reader through the thriving beer scenes of cities like Chicago, Bristol, and Barcelona, pausing to spotlight landmark breweries and bars, whether it’s Toronado in San Francisco or FrangÓ in São Paulo. For Beaumont, beer is a shortcut to experiencing the true character of a place. He hones in on how to make the most out of each venue, from taking in the history to savoring a signature pour. So if you’re packing your own bubble wrap to protect souvenir bottles or just looking to enhance a vacation with some brewery tours, Will Travel for Beer will put you on the right track.
