Drinking beer is an big part of life in Dublin. The pubs and traditional ale houses in the area are often full of patrons. However, if you must drink beer in Dublin, there are two places you should go: The Guinness Storehouse and The Porterhouse. At the Guinness Storehouse, beer lovers can see the brewing process for themselves and learn how to pour the perfect pint. The Porterhouse is the city’s first brewpub.

  5. Portland, Oregon – Beervana in the United States
