Lounge Locally, Sip Internationally! Best 20 Beer Pubs Around The World

San Francisco, California - The Monk's Kettle

One of my personal favorite things to do on the road is sipping a pint (or many) of cold beer. Most girls prefer a ruby glass of wine, full of body. Some prefer a flute of bubbly champagne. I was heavily influenced by my grandfather, and then my father too, by their appreciation for a crispy brew. One of my favorite memories growing up in Taiwan is falling asleep in our Japanese room which was richly decorated with tatamis, origami wallpapers; watching my grandfather looking out the window while taking sips from cans of Taiwan Beer, which is still one of my ultimate favorite beers.

I remember being in Zermatt, Switzerland with my sister, and both of us grew less interested in skiing (it didn’t help that we don’t ski), but far more interested in sitting indoors enjoying glasses of Heineken with a pot of sizzling fondue. Another favorite memory is from living in Japan and bringing visiting American friends to a Westernized beer garden full of beautiful mosaic tiles on the walls (check out Lion Beer Hall in the slideshow).

In recent years, it’s been lovely to witness the rest of the world catching onto the culture of microbrewery, which began in the UK back in 1970’s. I also love the idea of gastropubs becoming more prevalent throughout the world. A delectable fusion of gastronomy in cuisine in addition to high-quality selections of craft beers…this is what I would label as the absolute “dream meal”.

So here are twenty beer pubs around the world that I personally think you should include in your travel itineraries. Although fanatic beer lovers are mostly in countries such as: Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, US, Canada, Australia, Japan…etc. But here are some historical and gastronomical gems that should probably be on your radar. Cheers!
