But its so expensive to stay there. 1738USD for a week (hotel + plane.


That figure really depends on when youíre coming to London and where youíre staying...

Anyway, enjoy Krakow!

This thread made me even more excited for my upcoming trip to Europe. Already have plans to visit many of the cities mentioned including Stockholm, Munich, Bamberg, Antwerp, and Brussels.

East Proctor- The Slaughtered Lamb. Stay on the road. Keep clear of the moors.

Now now people, before we all start writing off Dublin, I must say that the beer scene has improved three-fold over the past year.
A good few pubs in the city (Against the Grain, Black Sheep, L.Mulligan Grocer - to name but three) have over 20 taps (keg and cask) with a good mix of local craft brews, US imports, British ales, and a few Belgian numbers. All of the above pubs have well over 100 bottles too (and none of them serve Guinness thank god!).
Granted, Dublin isn't beer geek Mecca - but it's steadily improving!

If itís really a *beer* trip, skip Munich and add more time in Belgium. Or DŁsseldorf instead of Munich.

You could make a case for any number of major European cities (Amsterdam, Brussels, Rome...) but if what youíre looking for is a *pub* then London will probably have the most to offer.


I visited many there, but I liked The Blackfriars.

London. Itís called the Southampton Arms.

Totally disagree. I love the Soton, but itís not a "proper" pub in the true sense of the word. IMO, anyhow!

Brodieís is a proper pub.


Agreed, at least you can get a pint of Carling Extra Cold in William IV

Antwerp. Anyone looking or HTFs or completely impossible to finds will be incredibly impressed with Kulminator. In addition to that, the couple that run the place are absolute gems.

you tell me how did you end up in that village ?!?!

in all my travels to Italy, I donít think I will ever manage to get near there...
Tracked down the owner, Umberto, through a search for the Don Quijote. Heís friends with the van Roy family, and with Dany at Fantome, so he gets interesting beers from each. And he cooks with beers! Give him a few days notice for a spectacular meal. Or with no notice, the pub food is also good. Very friendly place, and worth the hair-raising drive to find.
