There are countless places to grab a pint across this planet. How do you know where to get a beer when you travel? Where To Drink Beer is packed full of recommendations for anywhere you may go.
Where To Drink Beer In The World
We’ve all had those times when you want a beer but aren’t sure where you want to head to have one. Or maybe you’re traveling to a distant land and aren’t sure what your options are. More than 400 pages of Where To Drink Beer will help you find a spot for a pint, no matter where you are.
With over 1,600 beer spots in more than 70 countries around the world, this book is FILLED with recommendations.
The book is broken down by continent, country, and region or city. Each recommendation has the name of the business, address, phone number, website, and more. Many include hours, credit card policy, type (Beer & Food, Beer Garden, Local Favorite, Unexpected, I Wish I’d Opened, Worth The Travel), and often, a short bit of insight about the spot from the person who recommended it.
It seems this book may value quantity over quality at times. When first flipping through I stumbled upon this recommendation.
Really? TGI Fridays? I mean, it is Indiana, so maybe there’s nothing better within miles, but it certainly makes you question the quality of the rest of the recommendations. If a chain known for their boring options of big corporate beer can make the list, what does it say about the barrier for entry? Sure it’s Terre Haute, Indiana, a city who’s claim to fame is their correctional facility executed Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, but there has to be a dive bar with better beer options than the local Fridays in town.
Chili’s gets recommended in Toronto, Canada. A place to get your baby back and bad beer. Come on.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is recommended? So, the Swarovski crystal is a great place for a beer? Or the Senator Larry Graig Memorial Restroom is a good stop of a blowie and a beer? Let’s be a bit more specific with the recommendations. I wouldn’t send someone to the airport for a beer but I would certainly recommend Stone Arch in the airport and the more than 60 Minnesota beers they have to offer (they’re another recommendation contained within the book). A bit more specificity would be helpful.
Many cities could also use a more robust listing of recommendations. Milwaukee has more than 8, while the Wisconsin capital of Madison has just 3. Though they’re good spots, Madison deserves at least an entire page for all the great places to drink beer in the city. Plenty of other place would have been better served by additional recommendations, especially when some cities receive entire sections devoted to their drinking options.

Some of the recommendations may require a bit of research but the countless options contained in Where To Drink Beer serve as a great starting point to anyone traveling the world in search of a good pint.
