Beer Breaks: the essential pocket guide to European beer travel

  • A pocket guide to beer city breaks in the UK and Europe
  • Includes over 30 cities, ranging from heritage brewing destinations to some of the newer must-visit beer towns
  • Written by Tim Webb, esteemed beer writer and author of CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide Belgium and The World Atlas of Beer

Beer lovers can now plan their next European getaway with Beer Breaks – the essential pocket guide to European beer travel, featuring over 30 destinations all easily accessible from the UK.

Featured destinations include Barcelona, Berlin, Bristol, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Madrid, Porto, Tallin and Vienna, among others. Each entry includes selected tourist highlights, food recommendations, itineraries for first-time visitors, accommodation and travel options. In addition, readers will find bespoke beer bars, cafés, restaurants and taphouses where they can experience the very best of each city’s beer scene, compiled by a world-renowned beer expert.

Author Tim Webb edited CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide Belgium for nearly 30 years and has put his expertise into other international guides such as the World Atlas of Beer, Pocket Beer Book, LambicLand and 100 Belgian Beers to Try Before You Die!

Webb says: “I loved compiling this book, as I got to choose surprise destinations and venues that I know will delight.  Most big flavour beers and top beer venues have survived the pandemic and are out there waiting to be tried. So, as COVID restrictions lift, it’s time to feed that pent-up urge to travel, and get some really fresh beer experiences.”

The guide lists over 200 venues across the featured cities, with colour photography throughout. Beer Breaks is available from tomorrow (4 May) on the CAMRA Shop and Amazon for £15.99 (CAMRA members discounts apply).
