Is there anything better than a frosty brew? Is there anything more satisfying after a long day of exploration in a foreign country than sitting down to a tall glass of delicious local beer?
And the great thing is that for travellers, beer is not just a drink. It's a culture. It's a window into local life; an ice-breaker; a friend-maker. To drink a beer while you're overseas is to immerse yourself in local life, to soak up centuries of tradition in quite often truly beautiful places, while also just having a really good time.
So cheers to the beer. All hail to the ale. Because on this episode of Flight of Fancy: the Traveller.com.au podcast, we're talking about the humble brew. Everything that's good, everything that's cultural, everything that's fun.
Join me and two experts in the business of the brew, travel writer Ute Junker, and "The Beer Pilgrim", Tim Charody, to travel through the world's great beer cultures, looking at the cherished traditions and the modern customs. The trio will take you from Belgium to Japan, from Germany to the US, and more.
So settle back with a frosty one for this very beery episode.
