Europe is the consummate vacation destination and it ranks highly on the bucket lists of most Americans. Paris, London, Athens, Rome, Madrid, and other cities overflow with history and culture so it’s no wonder that so many people name Europe as a place they would most like to visit in the future. In October, 2015, a special event is planned that promises to overflow not only with history, but also with beer. It’s the Pilsner & Pastries Riverboat Cruise, a vacation trip through Europe’s heartland, hosted by Bryan Carey with Great Beer Now and Abundant Journeys. Here is some background information:
