Rounding out our list of the best cities to have a beer in Europe is Antwerp, Belgium. And this city is our favorite for one reason only: Antwerp is home to the most incredible bar we've ever been to, The Kulminator. It's not a trendy bar, in fact, at first glance you might not even realize it's a bar (since the signs in front don't look very good), but if you find it, you'll be rewarded with the biggest beer list you can imagine. They have more than 5,000 beers here.
And the beer menu is in a folder more than 15 cm thick. The unique interior of The Kulminator in Antwerp, Belgium. The classic (and in my opinion, the best) beer city in Europe is Cologne. I think people should travel there this year and every year (followed closely by Brussels).
The culture they have created around their favorite beer style, the Kölsch, is truly amazing. There are service rituals (but not exaggerated) and many different producers add a subtle touch to the beer style. Brus serves craft beer in Nørrebro, Copenhagen. The Danish capital is a paradise for beer lovers and beer lovers.
You'll find fantastic craft beer bars, breweries, and taverns scattered all over the city, especially in the neighborhoods of Vesterbro and Nørrebro. Be sure to visit WarPigs, Mikkeller's huge brewery in the Meatpacking District, the fabulous Fermantoren, Nørrebro Bryghus, and Ølbaren, the oldest craft beer bar in Copenhagen, where its hygge button is high. Food and drink at Nørrebro Bryghus Restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark. While there's no denying the appeal of some of the big beer cities in Germany, Belgium, and the Czech Republic, my favorite European beer city is Dublin.
Every November, Billie's Craft Beer Fest welcomes beer lovers from around the world to enjoy their favorite beers. The beauty of Brussels as a beer destination is that you can get an iconic beer that normally costs a penny in the United States. We also recommend visiting U Kunštátů, a craft beer bar and outdoor tavern that serve dozens of craft options. Thanks to its location between Germany and the Czech Republic, the city's beer culture has been influenced by Bavarian wheat beers and Czech pilsners for centuries.
Much of Poland's success in the craft beer scene is due to the country's lack of brewing tradition. With more than 40 beers on tap and bottled specialties on the shelves, this is the ideal place to immerse yourself in Italian beer culture. Here you'll find everything from traditional Belgian abbey beers to quirkier favorites like Floris Chocolat, a chocolate-infused beer. Poland's beer culture is legendary across Europe, and the young, lesser-known city of Wrocław is the best place in the country to drink beer (except, perhaps, Warsaw).
It was probably one of the most delicious beers I've ever tasted, and sadly, I'll probably never drink it again, as this beer was produced with a very limited supply. This is where Gose, a local beer made from wheat with salt and coriander that is fermented with lactose, became a drinking phenomenon in Europe and has caught the attention of the modern craft beer scene in the United States. When summer comes, the Antwerp Beer Passion Weekend offers visitors the opportunity to try more than 200 types of Belgian beers. It's a mecca for beer lovers, in a bustling city with beautiful parks and breweries that seem to have no end.
Outside of festival season, Munich is still a must-visit European beer city, if only because of its huge breweries. Leen knows this beer menu inside and out, and can give you fantastic recommendations if you're having trouble navigating its extensive beer menu.
