Craft beer is ultra-cool. Everybody wants to drink it, and many want to brew it. Dutch Moving platform ScanMovers.com therefore wanted to answer the question where a craft beer lover feels happiest. They tried to identify The 100 Best Cities in the World to Drink Craft Beer(T100BCWDCB) and are pretty proud of our findings!
Why? Because they are hip, they love beer, and they are from the Netherlands; one of the most famous beer countries. Next to that, they move people and want them to be fully informed on the city they go to, especially when it comes to something as important as craft beer!
They looked at vital craft-beer indicators such as craft beer bars, bars per 100 km2, bars per capita, microbreweries, beer consumption, beer production, pint-prices, boperating hours, hipster compatibility, craft beer buzz, and the legal beer drinking age.
Here are the top 25 winners:
- San Diego
- San Francisco
- Buenos Aires
- Cape Town
The Hungarian capital Budapest is a magical city divided by the River Danube; the hilly eastern part is called Buda, and the flat western part is called Pest. Budapest takes the 25th place on the list by a good craft beer count, cheap beer, and a surprisingly strong hipster compatibility. Buda & Pest could end up higher if they had more craft beers and microbreweries. Hungarians are still too much into standard lager. The largest sör brand is Dreher, established in 1854, and currently owned by the Japanese mass-brewer Asahi.
The latest beer news from Budapest: this year’s Gourmet Fesztival, one of Europe’s most famous culinary celebrations, has three main themes: paprika, bread, and… beer! That says a lot about the city’s beer culture.
