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.

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?
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.

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.

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.
