Cheers to Prostly’s thirteenth issue where we delve into the world of beer and travel. The overarching theme this month is the force that is craft beer and its influence around the world. We’re highlighting pioneering microbreweries from South Africa, Vietnam and Western Europe.

We’ve got two comprehensive beer guides in this issue. First, a look at one of Europe’s most groundbreaking beer scenes, Copenhagen, which extends far beyond Mikkeller. A longtime craft beer lovers mecca, Copenhagen’s beer scene is constantly brewing up something fantastic – pun intended.

And then onto Rotterdam, the hip alternative to Amsterdam. The Dutch city is known for its creative and laid-back citizens, making it the perfect environment for craft beer to thrive. We’re featuring a local’s guide to Rotterdam’s best breweries, beer bars and beer gardens.

South Africa’s craft beer scene is booming, led by pioneering breweries like Clarens Brewery. Located in the artsy town of Clarens in the nature-filled Free State, Clarens Brewery is pumping out some great brews and producing ciders with fruit from local farms. It’s a must-stop on any South Africa road trip.

Finally, we’re profiling LAC Brewing Co. in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Part of the first wave of Vietnamese craft breweries, LAC is a little off-the-beaten-path but worth the trek to sample some of the city’s top brews.

And that’s a wrap on this month’s edition of Prostly. Tune in next month for another brew filled issue, where we share stories of beer around world. We’re always looking for collaborators so get in touch if you’re a beer writer, photographer, or brewer. First rounds on us.

Prost!
