After meeting your private guide at a specified location in Berlin, your beer tour starts with your first tasting—a traditional beer from a beloved brewery. Hopfenstopfer Citra Pale Ale is a fruity, freshly kegged brew. (On Sundays, this tastings is Kuchen Kaiser pils and takes place at a different local store.)
Then head to a bar frequented by locals and known for its quirky interior design for your second tasting, Schultheiss Pilsener, a malty, slightly spicy brew made from an 1842 recipe. Next up, your third tasting—Schopper Hell, Black Flag, or Weiz—is accompanied by a salted German pretzel. Depending on the day, you may also get the chance to meet the brewer and taste the latest creations.
Finally, head to a lively microbrewery/bar for your last tasting of craft beer. This is a hip spot popular among the newer generation of beer lovers. Throughout your tour, enjoy tips from your guide about the best bars and party spots to visit later on your own.
Note: On Sundays, this tour starts at a different location and offers a chance to try out a local brunch with the proper pint of lager.
