As 2015 comes to a close and its that exciting time, when people all over the world venture home to friends and family to celebrate the achievements from the year. Reconnect with loved ones and a time when you can let your hair down and have a couple of quiet beverages. Below is my top 10 picks for a beer over the Holiday season. Now this is also a international hand picked group, so if its not summer well that s not our problem. Enjoy.
1. Beach Hotel Byron Bay
Located on the amazing front beach at Byron bay you cannot really go wrong. With about 53 beers to pick from and always a good tune. Some local and also internatial people watching is always fun.

2. the standard new york
Looking for a place to impress for a cheeky drink in New York then you cannot go past "The Standard" is a sleek 18-story tower rising above the High Line urban park. It was a former elevated train track, this hotel has floor-to-ceiling windows to take in sweeping Hudson River and city views. Get involved if your in NY.

4. Noosa Surf club
Nothing like a lifesaving club on the beach front. Once you have finished in the water and the kids are running around like mad (not that i have any) you need a hard earned beer then go no further than the Surf Club in Noosa. Also a great steak i recommend it.
