It’s beer o’clock… who am I kidding? Any hour of the day is beer time on this International Beer Day.
And that’s why I’m saying… here’s to the Brewery and Two Goats Deli in Nieu Bethesda, Dulf’s Burger in Hamburg, Tom’s Bierhaus in Ieper in Belgium.
And where ever your local boozer is.
But firstly would you let me take you to a dusty Karoo town in the Eastern Cape of South Africa?
Because it was there that I spent a very pleasant afternoon in the baking sun, drinking samples of stouts and ciders.
And before falling asleep on the swing bed.
That said, they are good memories that I hark back to on this International Beer Day.
Bok to the beer
This is where I sampled South Africa out of a glass… or five.

And here’s a couple of other pics of me drinking beer…
Burger and beer
In Germany, obviously, with a local Astra Pilsener lager and a hamburger. It must be Hamburg. Let’s relive it… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/hamburgers-and-ships/
And a large one with Simon in Tom’s Bar in Ieper in Belgium.
It was a poignant trip finding my Great Uncles who fell in the War.
But this was downtime… and I bet Willie and Patrick drunk the beer too. https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/firstworldwar-in-flanders-fields/
Virginia in the US: And this is a blonde I picked up in Bristol. A beer that is. visit www.virginia.org.
So why don’t you join me on my day out in Virginia which was billed as Beer and Battlefields and took me back in time to the days of Stonewall Jackson. https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/home/easy-dc-2/
We’ll leave it at that for just now… I’m thirsty.
Apart from to say, a big thank you to Californian Jesse Avshalomov for giving us the excuse.
Because it was Jesse who founded the thing in 2007 in Santa Cruz, Southern California.
And since its inception it has grown into a worldwide phenomenon (which I’m catching onto now) spanning 207 cities, 80 countries and six continents.
