Roundtable Discussion | Relocating for the Beer
As extreme beer enthusiasts, our PorchDrinking team knows their beer and they also know where to find it and be completely content for the rest of their lives. In this week’s Roundtable Discussion, I asked the team where they would relocate if their only criteria was excellent beer. Many are already living in their beer heaven. Others knew exactly where they’d rather be if beer’s the sole decider.
If you find yourself getting the itch to try on a new hometown, you may want to take note of their answers.
Checking in as a current LA resident. I’d be in Denver in a heartbeat.
You can’t get much better than Denver, my current city, but if I had to move, it would easily be to Portland. There are so many options for beer and non-beer activities. With so many great breweries AND Voodoo Donuts in both cities, it would be very easy to acclimate.
Brussels, Belgium All those Belgian & trappiste ales.
As a current Cincinnatian, I would have to choose Denver…. I mean, if I HAD to relocate.
This is a tough one! As an LA resident, I would have to go with Portland. I’m too close to choose San Diego but the wise would consider it.
It’d have to be somewhere in Belgium. If I were limited to the US, it’d be Portland.
Torn between Denver & Asheville.
San Diego. Great beer, great surf.
Although I absolutely love everything that Denver has to offer… It would be really tough to pass up moving to either Copenhagen or Brussels.
If forced to leave Denver, Portland would be at the top of my list. I’d move somewhere inside the triangle formed by Hair of the Dog, Upright, and Cascade.
Although I would be very tempted to go to Greensboro, VT or Decorah, IA…
San Diego. Awesome beer
I would go back to Berlin. Where the beer flows like water and no one looks at you weird for drinking a beer on an afternoon train ride. Or at 7 in the morning while reading a newspaper.
Considering I’ve been on quite a Belgian kick lately, it would have to be Brussels. I would leave DC in a heartbeat to go work for the EU or NATO. And to drink all of the delicious beers.
I am privileged to live in Denver. But Portland would be most excellent. The proximity of the copious amounts of quality craft beer with breweries and bottle shoppes would have me relocating in a heartbeat.
Munich. I’m ready for some singing, dancing, drinking beer out of boots Oktoberfest business.
If I went for beer, Brussels would be good — but there are so many other spots that would be great in Belgium. Most of my other spots aren’t as beer-extensive (though they have it). Budapest, Granada, Edinburgh are three relocation spots. At least the last one would be nice when it comes to cask ales. In the US: either Portland.
If I had to relocate (leave Denver) I’d probably go to Portland. Here’s my reasoning: they have amazing beer, I wouldn’t be too far from Bend (yay ski season), and I’d pretty much just be following Christopher Day and Brady Akers around, annoying them for the rest of our lives.
Oh my first stalker. I feel SO SPECIAL right now, everybody. It took a lot of hard work but I finally made it!!
