Beer

At Matador, you’ll find the articles on beer festivals going off around the world, reports on beer competitions and the morning-after regret of the free sample booth, and instructions on how to ask for a pint in 50 languages.

But we go beyond the standard, covering an Austrian spa where you can bathe in beer, Japanese “space barley” beer that sells for $150 / six pack, and a rundown of the different styles and purposes of beer glasses.

We’ve also gone in search of the best microbrew in the U.S. and taste tested the bottom of the barrel to determine America’s worst beer.
