Around the World in 80 Beers

Hugo forwards an "Around the World in 80 Beers" promotional email from travel site Kayak:
It's the stuff dreams are made of - going to the world's biggest drinking session with all your friends. Germany's Oktoberfest offers the perfect opportunity...over two weeks of festivities dedicated to that magic elixir of water, hops, malt and barley. Head over to Munich for the biggest party in the world. Don some lederhosen, break out that bratwurst and sing folksongs to your heart's content. Not your style? We've found a few other places where you can cleanse your palate. So come on all you swiggers, swillers and sippers and get thee to a brewery!
The destinations with current specials include Brussels, Prague, Munich, Sydney and Philadelphia.

My flight back to the United States on Zoom Airlines was canceled this week after the airline went bankrupt. Luckily, I was able to find a replacement quickly yesterday on Sidestep, Kayak's American equivalent. Great way to find cheap fares with a fixed date, and highly recommended, although I wish they offered a price calendar feature like Skyscanner, which allows you to quickly see which day is cheapest to fly.
