Feb 11, 2013 —  For thousands of years, beer has been a favorite to royal and peasant alike. And what we consider as beer today was developed long ago up on a monastery somewhere in the old country. At some point, it was decided that the best way to celebrate Europe's favorite drink was by bringing together the different brews for all to taste. Thus, the beer festival was born. As far as we at Party Earth are concerned, it is one of the greatest inventions of all time, alongside the beer keg, the beer tap, and if we’re feeling frisky, the beer bong.

It’s no surprise then that Europe has some of the most impressive beer festivals in the world. Locals and travelers alike come from far and wide to toast the best brews: big and small, light and dark, crisp and bitter, without prejudice. We found exhibitions that stretch miles on end as well as celebrations that shut down entire streets, all for the sake of raising steins of malty goodness. Whether you want to sing "ein prosit" in your lederhosen or experiment with microbrews in a warm ballroom in the winter, there’s a festival for everyone. But before you organize that itinerary, make sure to time your travels to coincide with these legendary beer fests.
