Beer is a topic that appears in the Bremen blog time and time again:
Rike tours the beer gardens away from the Weser, while Ingrid discovers the beer gardens on the Weser. A tip for sun-worshippers: the Schlachte is one of the best places in town to soak up the rays. And the sunsets here aren't bad either! Where else could you take your pick of over 2,000 outdoor seats in the heart of a city and relax by the water in full sun or tree-dappled shade?
The blog also shines a light on Bremen's craft beer scene, including personal recommendations for 13 bars in Bremen. The list covers all kinds of bar, except the pretentious kind!
Of course, we can't talk beer without mentioning Bremen's most famous brew: Beck's. Our film team wasted no time getting started on a short taster of the tour. Speaking of Beck's, Meike has an extra tip for the perfect sundowner:
"What could possibly be better than sitting on the top deck of the Alex, sipping a cold Beck's and watching the sun go down? Having travelled the world, the lovingly restored tall ship is back in its home town of Bremen. I was certainly impressed with what I found! The nautical setting creates a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Hear tales of the ship's Cape Horn adventures and, if you're lucky, you might just meet the former captain while you're on board. For the full experience, I'd recommend a stay in the ship's eight-berth cabin, or 'puma cage' as it is affectionately known!"
