European Beer Star

European Beer Star on Tour - Travel Blog

The European Beer Star stands for diversity and uniqueness of the beers. The beer styles in the competition are of European origin. There are plenty of imitations of individual beer styles around the world. However, in order to understand the intentions of the brewers in the countries of origin as well as the aroma and taste components of the beer styles, there is no getting around the experience on site.

The European Beer Star travel blog is intended to honor the worldwide efforts of brewers to spread beer culture. The Global Family comes together - all over the world! Join us on a journey through the beers of the world and learn more about local beer habits and their influence on the European Beer Star.
