Beer Travels Around the World

Krabi, Thailand

March 2015. Krabi, Thailand. Single Beer. Gotta have a glass or a bottle or 5 of Singha

Bangkok, Thailand. At the Craft Brewery Pub and Brew Beer Bar

Found a great spot in Bangkok called Craft, where they serve 40 taps from different breweries all over the world. Here’s a pint of City of the Dead (Stout) by Modern Times Brewery in San Diego. Such a great beer!

Found another craft beer bar in Bangkok, called Brew, with a few selections on tap, but with quite bit of different choices for bottles and cans. This was right across out hotel. See Michael’s smile?
Here we had:
Punk IPA by Brewdog in Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Yo-Ho Aooni IPA by Yo-ho Brewing Company in Nagano, Japan
Hardcore IPA by Brewdog in Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Michael wanted to see if he will get in trouble while drinking in public while we were in Siem Reap, Cambodia… with a Kingdom Gold Pale Lager by Kingdom Breweries (brewery in Phnom Penh, Cambodia). Happy hour is on!! Beer of choice is a pint of Angkor Pale Lager by Cambrew (Carlsberg)

Sihanoukville, Cambodiacambodia

We tried the Porter (to the left) and an English Ale with Dragonfruit (right) from Red Dot Brewery

Brewerkz Singapore had a great Golden Ale and IPA! Tasted very close to Michael’s home!

Cancun and Isla Mujeres, Mexico

 Having some Dos Equis before we hop on the boat to go island hopping

We decided this was the best way to end out trip! We get to take the Corona bottle(s) home too! I don’t think these LARGE bottle exist in LA.

Taps, Istanbul, Turkey

We’ve searched all over for this place Michael kept talking about, and when we got there, we stayed until they closed. At that time, this was the only Craft Brewery in Turkey. We LOVED the Red Ale and the Smoked Lager. We met some wonderful people and got to take home a couple of glassware.

Sacred Valley, Peru

Michael kept rambling about having “Chicha” (De Jora) in Peru. Chicha is a SALIVA-fermented corn beer. The girls were in charge of the whole trip (as usual), and this was the ONLY thing Michael needed to research on so he can take us to try this drink. Everything was in order, we found a house with the flower outside, which means they have Chicha available, except Michael FORGOT to tell us how Chicha was made. It was worth the try though!

Michael with the “brewers”. No need for large fermenters and brew kettles, just a glass of chicha to drink while “brewing”, teeth, saliva, corn, a big bucket to spit on, and some company!

Finally a glass of Chicha! Michael’s fuel before the hike to Macchu Pichu!

Santorini, Greece

On our way to go wine tasting, we happened to pass by Santorini Brewing Company. After wine tasting, we had walked about 1 mile to get to the brewery, but unfortunately it was too far for a walk. Glad to have found their bottles in Fira! Michael loved the Red Donkey (Amber Ale).
