Ready to embark on a hop-filled adventure? Discover which beer-filled locations you should add to your beer tasting bucket list. These are the places in the world that will ensure you embark on a journey of sipping fantastic brewskis.


This country has a rich tapestry of beer-related history and a wide selection of fermentation processes that produce over a thousand original beers native to Belgium. From monasteries to small local breweries, this country has a beer culture like no other.

If you’re looking for beer type diversity, Belgium is a top destination to try a selection of creations in one place. From the refreshing taste of a pale ale to the heavy hand of a Belgian stout, you’ll have a wide tray of terrific tasters to look forward to.


With rainy days and Irish pubs to cosy up and enjoy a pint or two, it’s easy to see why Ireland makes the list. This country has a reputation for its black beers, or stouts, which offer a smooth but heavy finish (perfect for the colder weather). From dry to milk stouts, you’ll always be able to find this beer type at a local drinking hub. Home to one of the most iconic beer labels, Guinness, Ireland has a long beer brewing history and has over 70 breweries. 


From the merriment of Oktoberfest to the sheer diversity of its beer types, Germany has long reigned as one of the best beer havens in the world. Some believe that this country’s craftsmanship has roots dating back as far as 800 BC, making it one of the oldest recorded histories.

Interestingly, Germany has one of the oldest food safety laws regarding beer making, the Reinheitsgebot Beer Purity Law. This Law ensures that beer production relies on only four ingredients (yeast, water, hops, and malt) to guarantee its quality. 

On your journey to Germany, you’ll be able to visit and explore a kaleidoscope of various breweries within the country. If you find yourself in the vicinity on 23 April, you’ll be able to celebrate German Beer Day and join in on the festivities.
