- Finding a nice place that also serves good beer is pretty hard, especially when you are away from home.
- That’s why we have prepared a list of 3Bs (3 Best Beer Bars) in the world.

It’s hard enough to find a good beer bar in your city. But to find the best beer bars in the world?
That is an incredibly hard job to do, so we passed the responsibility to thousands of people who have expressed their reviews on some Travel Websites. We managed to find the 3 Best Beer Bars in the world.
If you think we missed a spot, give us a feedback and maybe we will include them in future articles!
So, we chose the bars using the following criteria:
- The look of the place.
- The beer taste.
Here is our top:
One’s mind doesn’t always drift to Sweden when it comes to beer, but Akkurat is a classic on the beer cult scene with a massive following of devoted imbibers.
You will always find a coveted Cantillon on draft, but that’s not even close to the end of it: the bottle list has over 600 entries, including cuvées and cellared vintage beauties you won’t find anywhere else, period.
And if you’re looking to jump headfirst into the heavy stuff, the whisky club (which clocks in at five pages long) and the food menu are far from an afterthought
Gold Star Beer Counter
Brooklyn, New York
Gold Star Beer Counter is our top beer bar of 2018. Somehow, this extremely cozy gem eluded us for the past couple years. And yet, Gold Star checks all the boxes for a stellar beer bar.
It’s comfortable and warm; the modern accents are balanced by wood paneling and a record player spinning anything from Bill Callahan to Run the Jewels to Jim James.
There’s a reliable selection of beer to go, including crowlers for those who want to bring a draft pour home. Among the cooler features of Gold Star is the walk-thru window that lets folks pick up beer from the sidewalk (during the day, you can conveniently get a pour-over coffee to go).
And if you’re peckish, they have a can’t-miss food menu with great sandwiches (try the salami picante) and charcuterie plates.
It may take a few minutes to find this tucked-away, Belgium-meets-Georgetown pub, but it’ll be worth it. The bar is stocked with plenty of imports as well as stateside, Belgian-inspired brews, organized by flavor profile instead of style.
The staff is knowledgeable and is sure to direct you to an amazing beer. As an added bonus, the menu features hearty Belgian eats.
The first time I visited Sovereign, I actually had the great fortune to spend some time in the bottle room. There was a ridiculous assortment of Lambics, Witbiers, and Trappist ales.
Rows and rows of Rocheforts and Westvleterens. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, splurge for bottles from Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen.
