Drinking In the Culture

Tuppers' Guide to Exploring Great Beers in Europe

Drinking In the Culture is the first ever guide to finding, not just good beer, but good beer places in 24 of the best brewing cities in Europe.

Each chapters offer an overview of the history and culture of the city—including its beers—plus ideas for where to stay or eat, what to see, and nearby excursions for further  exploration. But the heart of each chapter is the "sixpack" of the very best spots in town—pubs, bars, and beer gardens—to enjoy the area's distinctive brewing traditions.

A unique combination of travel advisor and beer guide, Drinking In the Culture helps travelers discover the rich variety of beer-drinking experiences Europe has to offer.
