12 ways that beer makes you feel
It’s been a long and overwhelming day of sightseeing, so when that icy cold tap beer is pulled by the bartender we can understand why you’re suddenly overcome with emotion.
Is it the excitement of being in a new city, the thrill of finding a great local pub or simply relief that the man behind the bar understood what you wanted? It’s probably all that and more, so to mentally prepare you for the experience here are twelve of ‘The Feels’ you can expect to be faced with on an Urban Adventures Beer Tour…
2. An expanding head
No, not from the beer, from the sheer amount of knowledge you’ll be drinking in. See what we did there?
3. A nodding head
But we only recommend this in Philadelphia
When you’re drinking local craft brews in a local pub or bar, how else are you supposed to feel?
Yes, terror. Because you know you aren’t going to be able to find these beers at home, and we think it’s perfectly acceptable to be terrified at that thought.
That you at least got to experience the goodness of the local craft beer scene for yourself. You’ll always have the memories. And the beer mats (seriously, grab some beer mats).
Don’t worry – in most places we’ve anticipated the need for beer food, meaning you get Czech tapas in Prague, Costa Rican tapas in San Jose and nachos in Toronto (that’s the local form of tapas, trust us).
8. The shares
You’re going to want to share your beer prowess all over Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. We all know how well beer photographs…even after a few.
Whether you know the other people on your beer tour or not, beer brings people together. It’s a fact.
10. An affinity for history
Because we all know that beer makes history better. Another fact.
11. Language bravado
Take this opportunity to pick up some new local slang words. Bonus points if they’re in another language. Extra bonus points if you start to speak exclusively in that other language.
From local guides like Niki in Prague to Jason and Jason in Toronto and Philly, these guys are obsessed with beer, and it shows. And seriously, who knew San Jose, Costa Rica, even had a craft beer scene? (Hint: we did…and now you do too.)
