Heading to Europe, recommend any awesome bars?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

So in September I am heading to Europe and doing the following

London, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Rome, Amalfi Coast, Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Brugges, Amsterdam

I was wondering if anyone has been recently and uncovered any secret or awesome craft beer bars or beer related activities that they would recommend?

I mean I cant imagine it would be hard to find good beer in Germany and Belgium, but if you know THE place to be - let me know null

Thanks!

Belushi's bars in London and Paris are great. Amsterdam have some good ones too but i was a little wasted most of that trip so i can't remember which ones they were haha

Cheers,

The Brewdog bars are everywhere. Good beer. Good vibes. I enjoyed the couple I've been to.

 

Berlin has a Stone Brewing joint - though I haven't been.

Jeez, belushi’s bars take me back. I used to often go to the “ain’t nothing but blues” bar near Piccadilly for an arvo open mic (I recall lots of Neil young, Beatles, Hendrix and stones being covered, some well and some not so much) then on to belushis (I can’t remember which one). And lots of good bars and pubs in places like Camden too. 

I quite enjoyed the Heineken brewery tour in Amsterdam, but I was possibly still under the influence of the previous night’s space muffins...

Obviusly Munich has the beer halls covered (hofbrau hause etc), can’t go wrong there.

But overall I loved the little local pubs and bars. I don’t remember any specifically secret, the-place-to-be spots but I reckon you’ll stumble across some real gems yourself, and it won’t take much effort. Just ask a local or the hosts where you’re staying.

As you say it won’t be tough to find a good beer!

My wife once worked at a belushi bar, can’t remember which one, but she goes on about how loose it was. 20 something in a foreign country, no doubt its gonna get out of control.

Brew dog bars in London - I preferred the one near Trafalgar sq than the one in soho (bigger, more levels). Other than that any bar in London serving cask ale ?
