April 7th is National Beer Day in North America, a day to celebrate the diverse and seemingly endless types of commercial and craft beers out there in the world.
In North America, the beer scene has continued to increase in popularity over the years, with breweries popping up all over the United States and Canada. People who never considered themselves beer lovers before are now finding themselves in heated debates as to which new craft brewery is creating the “most authentic” brew. A nice cold pint has suddenly become a cultural phenomenon spanning across generations of thirsty Americans and Canadians.
In light of this fabulous day, we thought we would share some of our favourite beer-inspired tours to quench that thirst of yours
