CRAFT BEER & GERMAN BEER TOUR

Every Friday & Saturday Duration 3.5 hrs

“Had a great time. Thirteen of us toured four different pubs and had twelve different beers. The guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a history of beer and a description of the differences in the many types of beers we were trying. With everyone sitting together we had a fun time interacting. We ended as if we had been friends forever.”
