Sam Adams

JetBlue has teamed up with Sam Adams to offer a very special kind of flight.

Travel + Leisure says that JetBlue will have “the first ever cruising altitude beer flight on October 5.”

The special Sam Adams flight sounds like a lot of fun. It will fly from New York’s JFK to Denver for the Great American Beer Festival. Continue reading JetBlue Will Have a Sam Adams Beer Tasting Flight

The Oddest Checked Luggage Ever- A Can of Beer!

Back in 2012 I came across what I’d considered the oddest checked luggage I’ve ever seen.

Since then, no luggage has really caught my attention as being odd or strange. However, I did see the oddest airline passenger back in February. (No, it isn’t really a person!)

So what might a can of beer and checked luggage have in common? Continue reading The Oddest Checked Luggage Ever- A Can of Beer!

Beer Lovers Might Want To Pass On Visiting Cuba

Beer Lovers

Kim, Lucas and I ended 2015 with a trip to Cuba, a destination I’ve long wanted to visit.

We had a really good time during our visit and the island did live up to expectations. However, the food was pretty disappointing. The beverages were a bit better with their soda TuKola being quite tasty and refreshing and their beers Cristal and Bucanero being enjoyable enough when drank ice-cold.

Oktoberfest Attendance Falls, Should You Attend?

Munich Oktoberfest

The biggest beer celebration in the world, Munich’s Oktoberfest recently came to an end. I wasn’t so surprised to read an article from Yahoo related to the event. Yahoo wrote that Oktoberfest attendance falls amid German border controls.

According to the article, 400,000 less visitors came to the event than during the previous year. This accounted for 400,000 less steins of beer being sold. Wow, talk about a big decrease. I wonder how this affects the economy of the city and jobs related to the event?

When Kim, Lucas and I went to Oktoberfest in 2013, we had an amazing time and would love to go again. Continue reading Oktoberfest Attendance Falls, Should You Attend?

I recently wrote about Delta adding more in-flight craft beer options and now another airline is adding to a couple of new brews to their inflight selection.

If beer is your drink of choice, you’ll probably be happy to see a couple of more options to choose from once you are done going through Southwest’s boarding process and have chosen your seat. Continue reading Cheers! New Beers Offered On Southwest

When it comes to Delta Airlines, on an almost daily basis all I seem to hear is bad news…

I haven’t been on top of all of the upcoming negative changes since I am not a mileage runner and I also don’t have loyalty to Delta. However, if I fly on a revenue flight with Delta in the future it sure will be a pain if miles earned from flying goes down. Continue reading Cheers! Delta Adds More In-Flight Craft Beer Options

Beer Travel and 8 Beer Trails Around the U.S.

Entrance to Brewery Ommegang

I’m not a big drinker by any means but beer has played a significant role in my travels over the years.

There’s been a couple of trips to Germany with beer as the primary focus and a trip to Belgium where it also played a big part. Then there are the brewery tours. I’ve been on countless tours, mostly in the United States but I’ve also been on many in others countries like Albania, Belgium, Denmark, Holland & Scotland (and probably a few more that I just can’t remember at the moment).

What is it about beer that makes it so interesting? Let’s see. First of all it comes in so many different varieties which definitely makes it fun to try out. The second and probably even more important thing about beer (when traveling) is the social aspect. Having a beer at a large, communal table is the perfect way to meet new people.  Continue reading Beer Travel and 8 Beer Trails Around the U.S.

America’s Coolest Breweries

When it comes to adult beverages, beer is usually my drink of choice.

Over the years beer has played an important role in many of my trips. I’ve visited and taken tours of quite a few breweries and have also had few beercenteric trips.

My first brewery tour was in Glasgow, Scotland at Tennent’s around 12-13 years ago  and my most recent one was in Korca, Albania this past summer. In between, I’ve visited breweries in many countries and all around the U.S.

When it comes to trips centered around beer, 3 of them come to mind.

  1. Continue reading America’s Coolest Breweries

Win An Amazing Beer Trip to Belgium

MoreBeer is giving away an amazing beer adventure for 2 to Belgium.

The prize includes 2 tickets on the 10 day Great Beers of Belgium Tour and more!

Kim and I have visited breweries and taken tours all over the U.S. and the world, so I think that this would be an amazing trip to take part in. A few years back I did a quick trip to Belgium with my brother and we had a great time trying out tons of local beers. During the trip, we had an impromptu beer tasting and checked out an unusual food museum.
