Butchers Tears, Amsterdam (by Martin Sollmann)
[…] making beer is an art form. And a science. You are supplied with all kinds of information regarding the specific tastes, you wouldn’t even know existed for beers – like the type of grains used, which sort of hops, which type of yeast […]

SingleCut Beer, New York (by Craig Nelson)

SingleCut Beer, New York (by Graig Nelson)
[…] Rich Buceta is the genius behind this bold venture and his fingerprints are everywhere, from the design of the logo on the taps down to the very last drop of beer that you will try. And trust me, you will try many pints when you visit the incredible tap room that’s open Thursdays to Sundays. […]

Brewdog, Glasgow (by Stuart Crawford)
[…] Try a pint of their flagship ale, Punk IPA, to get a taste of what they’re all about. Some of the other offerings on tap are pretty expensive, but you’ll notice that the alcohol content creeps up to around the 15%(!) mark. The best way to try these is one of the excellent beer flights, offering four 1/3 pint samples at a discounted price. […]

Fabrica Maravillas, Madrid (by Albert Corona)
[…] It really gets my two thumbs up, not only for adventuring into a segment that was absolutely necessary to cover, but also for doing it with style. After trying out one of their brews, I am happy to say that Madrid finally has a brew house for locals to hang out and have a proper brewskie. […]

Trillium Brewing , Boston (by Cris Conception)

Trillium Brewing, Boston (by Cris Conception)
[…] Trillium is a relatively new brewery, but has turned heads with their eponymous Trillium Farmhouse Ale. I like the Farmhouse a lot, but the rest of their list is great as well. They have their own tasting room that’s open to the public and the tastings are free. If you like what you drink, you can also buy reusable growlers to be filled with your beer of choice. […]

Eschenbräu, Berlin (by Jeremie Gerhardt)
[…] As many local breweries do, Eschenbräu offers three or four different beers and a seasonal beer. And because they know how to brew, you will have to come back regularly.

Schouskjelleren, Oslo (by Andrea Chirulescu)
[…] Kjelleren means cellar and that’s exactly what the place is – a brick walled cellar, with a big fireplace, low intensity lights, long tables and couches along the wall, beer barrels all over the hallways, no music (one of the best ingredient of an evening when you only want to chat with your friends) and obviously, beer.

Vagabund Brauerei, Berlin (by Marcel Krueger)
[…] Vagabund (the German word for vagabond) is a new neighbourhood brewery on Antwerpener Strasse. Launched by three American homebrewers, the venue opened a small taproom in July 2013 after a successful crowdfunding campaign (which made them Europe’s first crowd-funded brewery) that serves craft beer, classic Belgian ales and lager from family breweries from the south of Germany. And, of course, their own brews. […]

Bellwoods Brewery, Toronto (by Mauricio Alax)
[..] Although the option of beers may change, a safe bet would be to expect Ales, Brown Ales along with some IPAs and seasonal flavours. In the end, you might be pleasantly surprised! There are different flavours with varying alcohol levels so there should be something for everyone![…]

London Fields Tap Room, London (by Andrew Sidford)

New breweries are popping up all over the place, but Hackney seems to be at the forefront of the resurgence. One of my favourites is the London Fields Brewery – a small independent brewery in London Fields. […]
