If you’re in Berlin the first weekend of August, I would recommend a visit to the Berliner Bierfestival. From August 3rd to August 5th, Berlin is hosting its annual beer fest, or as it’s known locally, the beer mile. It’s really worth attending, even if you’re not much of a beer drinker.

Last year, the festival set a new Guinness World Record with the longest beer garden in the world having a length of 1,820 meters. With more than 300 breweries participating from 86 countries, this is beer paradise. In addition, to beer, there is live music, food, and entertainment. This year, the event is focusing on the beers from the Baltic countries. The three day event is located on Karl-Marx Allee in Mitte/Friedrichshain and lasts from mid-day to the evening. BTW: The event is free!

Too bad I’m in Portland this year.
