Welcome to BeerTrips.com!

If you are reading this at all, you and I have a couple significant things in common... a desire to see the world and a love of BEER. Oh, some people may roll their eyes or point a finger, but we know better!

Beer, I have been known to say on occasion, is pretty much at the root of all things. That's right, I said it... all things. Perhaps not directly at the root, but Beer and it's "cohorts" -- grain, fermentation, water and time -- have played huge roles in human history. Now some of these references are debatable, but you can find beer at many a histoical crossroads, from ancient Sumer to modern Portland. Big things happened because of beer. Agrarian civilization, the Code of Laws, Surviving the Plague, Cultivating Yeast, Plymouth Rock, Keg Parties. Okay but beer has palyed a pretty big role in European and Western culture for thousands of years. Check out the History of Beer here.

And I would happily tell you (over a beer or two in a cosy Brussels cafe, Czech pub, or Kolsch Knippe) that beer provides an excellent avenue into European history and current day culture.

Wanna meet the locals?

Find the local brewery tap, beer garden, corner pub, or beer cafe, pull up a stool, and order a good beer. Locals are generally pretty pleased to meet those of us who wander-lust-for-beer...

Interested in European history?

Learn about Royal decrees & the right to brew, trade routes & gruit laws, Patron Saints and Monastic History, Artistic Movements & the Crusades. Discover which brew kettles became bullets in WWI & WWII.

You like architecture?

Check out the elegant simplicity of the Victorian tower brewery or solemn beauty of a Trappist Abbey Brewhouse. Wander UNESCO cities offering up centuries of architectural innovation. Sit in centuries old pubs and art deco cafes, drinking it all in.

Are you a foodie?

Indulge in Cuisine a la Biere. Dabble in Czech dumplings and goulasch. Frites anyone? Anti-pasti del Mare? Weisswurst and Hefe-weizen for breakfast? The culture of beer and the culture of food inextricably linked -- eat, drink and be merry (for tomorrow we do it again!)

Life on a BeerTrip...

About Life on a Beer Trip:

Most trips begin at the hotel in the city where the trip begins, assistance and advice on getting there is provided. (Meeting a group in the airport is just no fun).

We stay in nice hotels in great locations.

Breakfast is included daily.

3 or 4 Lunches and 3 or 4 Dinners WITH BEER are also included... usually in brewery taps or beer cuisine restaurants.

A couple days we get up early to go somewhere worthwhile...

We hire a private coach or ride fast trains to travel between cities -- often we are a traveling tasting room, sampling local flavors of all sorts.

There's a lot of beer available... several brewery visits and special tastings, as well as beer meals and "pub crawls" -- at your discretion of course.

Most trips include guided walking tours of each city we visit.

Most trips have unscheduled free days to explore on your own.

The People on Beer Trips range in age from 23 to 77 (so far). Generally there are more men than women, but not always. Sometimes we have beer experts and brewers along, sometimes home brewers, sometimes people who simply want to visit Europe and drink beer with good people!
