Drink Your Way Across Europe

Posted By on 11.27.06 at 06:33 PM

If you don't have any pressing responsibilities this week you might want to head to Quenchers, which is hosting its 26th annual European Beer Tour through Friday, December 1. Fork over $50 and you'll get a "passport" good for any 15 of about 50 strange brews, from an English Double Diamond to a Lithuanian Kalnapilis, plus complimentary cheese and sausages. There's also a seven-beer option available for $30. And in either case, no, you don't have to drink them all in one night.

Josh, the friendly bartender who answered the phone, says that while the many Belgians the bar stocks are perennial favorites, beer tourists tend to gravitate toward exotica like Botchkovoe, a Russian lager. At the end of it all you get to keep the passport, complete with beer stamps and your glassy-eyed photo, plus beer company T-shirts, glassware, and other swag.
