You could sit at home, drink beer on your couch and watch that Law and Order marathon again, or you could can fancy yourself an adventurous trailblazer, explore historic and newly launched venues, and get your buzz on all at the same time on one of the world’s many drinking trails. Whether your poison is wine, beer, gin, bourbon, vodka, rum or you like to mix it up with a smorgasbord of spirits, there’s a trail out there leading you to the perfect destinations.
