Aberdeen, Scot­land

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - Love Handles -

A place to in­dulge many vices at once. An ex­ten­sive beer list, drams of whiskey, and cigars are all un­der one roof to cre­ate a spot that you won’t soon for­get.

What it is:

“CASC” stands for cigars, ale, Scotch, and cof­fee. In a city that has been home to peo­ple for more than 8,000 years and lo­cated in its his­toric Mer­chant Quar­ter, CASC brings mod­ern he­do­nism to the peo­ple of Aberdeen. Food is re­stricted to sim­ple cheese and char­cu­terie plat­ters, but the fo­cus of CASC is life’s more sen­su­ous plea­sures.

Why it’s great:

The first mod­ern beer bar in this north­east Scot­tish city fea­tures twenty-eight taps of (mostly) Bri­tain’s big­gest names in craft beer. The elec­tronic beer list is color-coded to help you find a beer to your lik­ing. In ad­di­tion, dozens of canned and bot­tled beers are avail­able to have at CASC or to take away. And if that weren’t enough, there are more than 200 whiskies (not just Scotch) and a se­lec­tion of cof­fee beans and brew­ing meth­ods. About 100 cigars are kept in a walk-in hu­mi­dor and can be smoked on the out­door cov­ered pa­tio. —Don Tse
