    99% sure I making the trip to these three cities mid-May. Wanted advice on where to drink, what to drink, and just cool places not to miss out on.

    Also, any offers on tour guides? :slight_smile:

    Not tour guides, but my favorite places Berlin and Prague

    In both you'll have a wide choice of "tradition" and "modern" styles, though the bulk of the newer breweries in/around Berlin tend to do "modern" stuff but you can find outlets for beers brewed all over Germany.

    (By "modern" I mean what people might call "craft" elsewhere: IPAs, pastry stouts, fruity kettle sours, etc)

    Obviously, Cantillon in Brussels. The only lambic brewery in the city. Definitely do the tour. Just FYI, after the tour, once your tour time is over, they stop serving which was a bummer as I as trying to get one more beer. The larger the group, the more beer you will get to try as lambics are bottle conditioned. They have about 4-5 on draft only.

    I would check out Bruges in Belgium. They have 2 breweries and an awesome belgian craft beer bar, Red Rose Cafe worth checking out.

    I'm going to Prague next week, but I've been following "Honest Guide" on YouTube. Some young guy going around his hometown give tips of Prague. He mentions several beer bars to go to in Prague and outside the city.
