100 Best Beer Bars in Austin


This is the most important thing I've ever done. Yes, this is a blatant rip off of DRAFT Mag. This started as a Twitter joke, but then I realized how easy it would be. Making magazines is simple. Let me know if I forgot someone. I might amend the list. If you don't like my rankings, sorry, make your own damn list. And did you really think I was going to include a link for each entry? I don't get paid for this—Bing it.

Euro Beer #68: 3 Monts on Train

Aix-en-Provence —> Barcelona



It was now early October in 2007. On the train to Barca. Early in the trip we popped open a bottle of 3 Monts I picked up in Aix. 


Could not find a cup for our 3 Monts, so we improvised by cutting an Evian bottle in half. 


It worked pretty well.


It is a lovely train ride. This is not a lovely photo. Sorry.

Euro Beer #67: Cocktails, Wine, and Dine at Host's Home

Aix-en-Provence



Cocktail hour.



Two meat plate. How do you say hot dog in French?


Le wine.


Not a flan fan.

Off to Spain!

Euro Beer #66: Aix en Provence Street Beer

Aix-en-Provence

After lunch we did some tourist shit. Mostly just walking around. 


This called for a beer of course. This did just fine.


Just like Cezanne. 

"Well, first I'd go to the room where they keep the Cezanne"


Cafecitos before hitching back to our host's home.

Euro Beer #65: Kronenbourg in some tasty cafe

Aix-en-Provence

We left our host's home and hitchhiked into town. This was on their advice. We told them we were wary about hitchhiking, but they assured us it is no big deal in Aix. Our driver was a sporty young fellow heading through Aix.


We arrived and were famished. The coffee and toast from earlier was not holding us over. We ducked into a crowded cafe. We almost kept walking because it was so busy. It was a good stop. I had a steak sandwich w/ onions and cheese, fries, mayo, and a crisp Kronenbourg. Sofia scarfed fries, fried chicken, and a salad. Extremely tasty joint. 




Aix is pretty.

Euro Beer #64: Train to Aix en Provence

GENOA——>AIX


Finally leaving Italy. Back into France for just a little bit before heading to Spain for a month. We grabbed these sandwiches from a Chinese deli in Nice near station during a break on the trip to Aix en Provene. Fried Poulet Sandwich with asian veggies. The beer . . . italian, duh, which we bought before leaving Genoa.



Club sandwich - blah.



Happy to be back in France. Beautiful train ride along coast.
