6 Amazing Golf Travel Beers

No matter where you’re teeing it up in the world, an ice cold brew can enhance your golf experience.

Whether it’s the local pub, the clubhouse bar or the “19th hole”, we all need a place to drink our sorrows away after a round of golf.

A place where us mere amateurs can dream about playing in the Masters or the Open Championship. Sorry big fella, shooting 103 is not gonna cut it on the Tour, but no worries, a pint of ice cold beer will make you feel better.

The post round drinking session is a big deal on a golf trip. Whether you’re in Ireland, Scotland or your local club in the USA, grabbing a pint and bonding with your golf buddies is a must on every itinerary.

Here are the 6 must have golf travel beers:


This one is a no brainer, especially if you’re in Ireland. A pint of Guinness after a long day walking a links golf course is one of the greatest experiences you can have on your trip. In Ireland, the Guinness is smoother, creamier and sweeter than anywhere else in the world. It tastes absolutely incredible! Walk to an old man pub after a round of golf and cheers to the sweet life. Sláinte! 


If you’ve ever been to the “Home of Golf” in St. Andrews, Scotland, you’ve most likely downed a few Tennents. This Scottish beer is a smooth pale lager that is best served ice cold. Tennents is enjoyed throughout the UK so whether you’re in England or Scotland this could be your go to post round brew.

Bud light

Before you start saying, “wait a minute man, bud light sucks” or “that’s just pissy beer”. We can all agree there is no better beer when you’re teeing it up on your local track. The next time you need to pound down 17 beers on the front nine because you’re playing like sh$%, just grab a bud light man. Heavier beers like Guinness and Tennant’s just won’t cut it. It’s also important to note, you can find bud light in most bars around the world so it can be your go to travel beer!

Coors Banquet Original

Folks, Coors Banquet is the most underrated beer in the entire world. It really does taste like it was brewed with “Rocky Mountain Water”. It may not be as popular as other American beers, but give Coors Banquet a chance during your next golf trip and you won’t be disappointed.

Budweiser Original

Budweiser Original is America’s beer. Bud light came on to the scene because we all want to loose a few pounds and think a few calories will make a difference. The reality is, it probably doesn’t matter, so just drink Budweiser. It’s still a great beer if you have it fresh. Ironically, American bars have a hard time pulling fresh beer. Odds are you could have a better Budweiser in Europe, because simply put, they know what they’re doing. Sad but true.

Murphy’s Irish Stout

Last but not least is Murphy’s Irish Stout. This makes the list because it is the favorite stout of some people in Ireland. Brewed in County Cork, it’s described as a chocolate milk version of Guinness, it has a sweeter taste that some people prefer. Regardless, a fresh Murphy’s tastes incredible on a windy cold day in the Southwest of Ireland after a hard day on the links.

Next time you play golf remember, it’s not how you play, it’s what you drink after your round. Cheers!
