Before I start planning I was hoping to get some answers to these questions: - How much would you like to pay for it? &#40;Excluding transport costs to travel to belgium&#41; - Which breweries would you like to visit? - How long do you want to travel? - How many people would you like to travel with? - Open to other sightseeing activities? If yes, which ones? - What are your expectations from the tour? &#40;e.g. only visit breweries, culture, history,...&#41; If you are genuinely interested, send me a pm so we can discuss further. Many thanks already for the answers&#033;<br><br>(4 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/beer-tour-belgium-questions_299937.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/beer-tour-belgium-questions_299937.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/beer-tour-belgium-questions_299937.htm Tue, 21 Nov 2017 14:30:16 EST BrewBridge, Phuket - Thailand Posted by brewbridge<br><br>lf you're heading to Phuket, Thailand, you'll want to find great craft beers.

Landing on Saturday September 30, planned 14:30. Staying at an airport hotel. Leaving day after. I figure Iíll have time to head into the city and go in search for 1-3 places easily accessible via MTR or other public transportation. Anyone got experience from the area to share with a first time visitor? Looking through the places at ratebeer seem to require some knowledge about Hong Kong areas, since they seem built together. First idea is mainly go from airport to Hong Kong Station, walk to Tipping Point Brewing Co. Next if still enough time head to Wan Chai Station and walk to The Trafalgar Brewing Company. If not enough time, search for a few of the listed bars around the Tipping Point. Go back to airport before second to last MTR / Airport Express leave for the night.<br><br>(28 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/hong-kong_298043.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/hong-kong_298043.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/hong-kong_298043.htm Tue, 21 Nov 2017 14:30:16 EST Ganstaller Brau availability in Germany/ PLZN Posted by kerenmk<br><br>While our upcoming beer trip in Bavaria/ Franconia/ Saxsony/ Nordrhein-Westfalen focuses on small, countryside brewpubs, we are very curious about Ganstaller beers, especially their rauchbier.

Now, I was wondering if this festival could be the best festival for going solo in Europe. Pros of CBC: Lots of activities and tap-takeovers all around Copenhagen. The city, Copenhagen is maybe the best for pub-crawl in Europe. The festival itself, lot of beers that are not available in Europe frequently. 4 sessions and lot of brews per session. Cons of CBC: Price of each session &#40;plus Copenhagen is not a cheap city&#41;. Only 4 hours per session. What about other festivals like Borefts, Beavertown Extravaganzza, Moscow beer fest, Amsterdam carnivale bretta, Eurhop...Any other???
