We are Susan and Erik, traveling the (mostly English-speaking) world in search and enjoyment of good beer, wine, cocktails, spirits, waterfalls, fireplaces, pubs, lighthouses, craggy coastlines, and cozy libraries. We travel off the beaten path and forge our own most of the time, taking the leisurely approach to travel. We try to post periodically on Mondays, as inspiration and adventures allow.
Erik gave a talk at the Athens League of Extraordinary Zymurgists (homebrew club) after Susan and Erik did an alcohol tour along the Northwest US coast. During the introduction, he explained alcohol tourism and asked if any of the 20+ people in the room- all ardent homebrewers and lovers of all things fermented- had done a similar trip before. No one raised their hand. The idea of alcohol tourism was entirely novel to this (die-hard) group of homebrewers. He decided this… this was a travesty. The world needs to know about alcohol tourism, because it has become such a fabulous, positive part of the lives and relationship of Erik and Susan.
