EUROPEAN BEER CHALLENGE

After a bit of a think about how to do this challenge, I have come to the conclusion that it's going to take a while. So my plan is to have reviewed a minimum of one beer from each of the countries listed below by Christmas. This is where I'm going to need suggestions for some of the weider/more obscure countries, so please hit me up at gus.norris7@gmail.com and keep your other emails coming, the feedback and ideas are greatly appreciated.

Countries List:

A little googling has led me to believe that this challenge may be possible. Every country on the list does produce at least one beer (even Liechtenstein), the question is whether I can get some of these more obscure beers. But I like a challenge, hopefully this goes well and doesn't fail miserably!

Remember its's always Beer O'Clock somewhere in the world!
