Summary Update #4: All About Beer Growler List

Whoa … you turn your head for one minute and 2 years go by!  haha.

Well … I know it’s been a while, but it’s time for another update on my Growler list work.  As a reminder, this list is my effort to complete the All About Beer Magazine’s “Growler List.”  125 best places in the world to have a beer.  As you might expect, a beer places list that is from 2008 has missed the Craft Beer explosion of the last 8 years.  So many new breweries and new places to visit … but I continue to work on the list … because.

From the summary — see my earlier post for explanation:

Total (actual) places visited: 62 (63 remain on the list).  I visited 12 places since my last post … but I owe posts for some of the earlier sites!   Those I’ve visited since my last post:

 

18) Horizon’s Cafe … CN Tower.

24) The Hopleaf

43) Clark Street Ale House

47) The Map Room

84) Goose Island Brewing

85) Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro

88) Baumgartner’s Cheese Store & Tavern

100) Steamworks Brewing

108) The Ghost Bar
