Welcome to Bier-Traveller.com
This website has existed in the mind of Hector since the birth of the Internet. The sister site Curry-Heute arrived first, an easier task by far.
With Bier tasting notes going back some fifteen years, and a clouded memory going back even further, it will take a considerable time to create a website that can stand comparison to the other sites already in existence.
What makes Bier-Traveller unique is that every place quoted has been visited in person by Hector hence the experiences/opinions are my own. If one’s taste in Bier tends towards the light in colour with abundant Hops then the wonderful experiences shared will be enjoyed. However Sarah Hughes’ Dark Ruby Mild and Schlenkerla Rauchbier are far from this description and equally appreciated. There are Biers with recognisable taste, and sadly too many without. The search for the Perfect Pint is continuous, one feels it is found and it then changes.
For Hector, a retired Geography Teacher, Travel is very much part of his life. The list of countries in the banner above gives background information to the locations visited. From here, details on specific venues can also be accessed, Brewery Taps and Bier-outlets that have been experienced – first hand. The Bier-Traveller Blog entries which run down the right side of the page therefore complement this root information. Bayern was commenced years ago, a mammoth task, The sections on Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Sächsen are representative of this Website in full mode.
Rome was not built in a day
Bier-Traveller.com has been active since 2011, it is taking years to complete a worthy site, the Travels continue, new Biers are encountered, and re-visited.
The summer of 2012 saw Hector’s Heroic Homecoming, a return to Prague where the Hector myth was born. 2013 saw Tunisia making an appearance. In 2014 – Hector Bounces Back – A Tour of Nordrhein-Westfalen, with a few surprises along the way. 2015 saw Fahren de Polen.
2016 featured The India Trip, and further trips to Italia and Polska. So far in 2017, there has been more Travelling than Blogging, though in celebration of the wonder that is Septem’s 8th Day (Mera) IPA, a lot of work is being put into Greece/Hellas.
