The Top 5 Must Try Asian Beers

Anchor Beer, Cambodia

Asian Beers have a reputation for being weak flavoured, watery lagers. Although alcohol content varies, taste lies in the same ballpark, regardless of brand. I wanted to put together a top 10 list… I couldn’t. I have actually failed in finding 10 beers of note in the whole of East Asia.

Solution? Pub crawl the convenience stores and sneak into a few venues with booze! So first of all, the title of this post is a partial lie – we do end up in …

Pub Crawl Brisbane – (With Video & Map)

Pub Crawl Brisbane, Australia

Greetings drinkers! Why pub crawl Brisbane? When we first moved here we weren’t convinced that this was really a city of exciting pubs… Happily, Brisbane has changed. There are a few mainstays that have been around forever, the real excitement though is in the burgeoning craft beer scene which has only very recently exploded all over the city. On this crawl we visit a spectrum of options, 9 top pubs and some honourable …
