Walk the beautiful streets of central Amsterdam, stopping in the downtown area to sample local beers and learn about the Belgium and German influences that have shaped the Dutch brewing industry. Learn about the spots where Amsterdam warehouses used to store beer back in the 15th century then take a detour through the red light district to visit a small brewery located within this infamous area.  

 

We visit another brewery just opened and finish the adventure at a legendary local beer haunt that has more than 200 different varieties of beer! Anyone who drinks beer will be amazed at the range on offer here. Choose to sip on a pale lager, gulp some bitter ale or sample a strong triple malt to celebrate the end of the tour. Raise a glass with friends, make a toast to Amsterdam, you are free to head back to your accommodation or stay on at the beer hall for another sneaky tipple.

Sean was good fun, knowledgeable and very flexible, ensuring we were happy with the itinerary before we set off. He was also good company and we persuaded him to join us for one more drink after the tour was over!

We had a great time with Sean. It was a nice relaxing beer tour, not like so many of the club tours offered elsewhere around the city. This tour was exactly what we were looking for.
