Zane Lamprey’s 25 Best Beer Cities In The World

I am sure that lots of us enjoy beer. Kim and I love visiting breweries to do tastings & tours and have visited quite a few! I’ve also done a couple of beercentric trips- Germany and Belgium. Both of those trips were with one of my brothers. On our Germany trip we visited Munich and Cologne. We visited lots of breweries and beer halls. In fact, every night for a week we had dinner at a different, massive beer hall.
I recently came across a list of Best Beer Cities in the World by Zane Lamprey. Zane had a couple of food and drink related cable shows that I used to watch years back. Both were really funny and chock full of information and odd facts. The shows I used to watch were “Have Fork Will Travel”- a food and travel related show and the hilarious “Three Sheets”. In Three Sheets, Zane would visit a different country each episode and try out the local drinks (and usually get really messed up).
The reason that I am bringing up beer and Zane Lamprey is due to a fun list that I recently came across. 
The list is Zane’s “Best Beer Cities in the World”. The list consists of 25 cities. I’ve been to a bunch of them including three of his top five.
I am going to list Zane’s top 10 and if you follow the link below you will get to the full list which has a good amount of information on each city. Enjoy!

10 Most Expensive Places To Visit

US News & World Reports put out a list of the 10 most expensive places to visit.
The majority of the list consists of European cities. I was surprised however to see London and Moscow missing from this list. I was also a bit surprised to see Sydney and Toronto crack the top 10. I never considered either to be places to find a bargain but I also did not find them to be overly expensive. Switzerland was the only country to put two cities in the top 10.

Here is the list:

  • Singapore
  • Toronto
  • Helsinki
  • Sydney
  • Tokyo
  • Stockholm
  • Copenhagen
  • Geneva
  • Zurich
  • Oslo
