Streetside Beer in Hanoi

Tweet Images from my college days are immediately conjured, of pumped kegs and frothy brews. But my current experience couldn’t be farther from Charleston parties.

Cologne’s Kolsch Experience

Tweet The Cologne kolsch experience is one of the most unique drinking cultures in Germany. So what is kolsch you ask?

Munich: Not for the Faint Livered

Tweet Porto prepared my liver for the destruction of Oktoberfest with all those 1 euro Super Bocks and port tonics at La Boheme, a bar that became the blogger haunt in my week there. Or so I thought.
