Pubs & Breweries Around the World
ASHEVILLE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Asheville is quite the mecca for beer enthusiasts with small breweries scattered just about everywhere. For a place with a good selection, a front porch and live music right beside the river, try out The Wedge.
ATLANTA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
In Atlanta I came upon this little gem: the Elliot Street Pub. It’s a little out of the way, but well worth it. Very nice selection of beer, gourmet sandwiches and very nice and knowledgeable bartenders.
Taphouse is a place with a cosy atmosphere and over 60 beers on tap, right behind the central station.
The Carlsberg Brewery in Valby houses two breweries where you can get tours, a proper restaurant, and it hosts events on Friday afternoons in the summer. The beer tasting is entertaining, instructive and delicious. My favourite beer is the Jacobsen Velvet beer, which is sadly going out of production.
If you’re in Dublin you can’t miss the Guinness Storehouse experience. See how the beer is brewed, learn about the history of the company and end the visit with a cold pint of Guinness beer with fantastic views over Dublin city.
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC
Visit Letna Beer Garden for a beer with a view, or Pivovarsky Klub for the biggest selection of beer in the country. Try a Prazdroj beer or the one that started it all, the Pilsner Urquell.
If you want an Italian beer, I liked the Moretti best. For a big selection of beer, go to Bir&Fud in Trastevere.
SAN FRANCISCO, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Mikkeller is a Danish beer brand with a branch in San Francisco. Very busy and atmospheric place serving up great beer (and I wouldn’t turn down the mac’n’cheese either!).
The Golden Gate Taproom is more of a sportsbar, but with over 60 beers on tap!
