What You Can Expect

Small-Group Amsterdam Beer Tour

Beer Walking Tour

Start your tour near Amsterdam’s Bierkoning shop, and then set off with your guide to explore Amsterdam’s legendary bars while learning about the Netherlands’ historical brewing industry. Having produced beer since the early 17th century, the country rapidly expanded its production about three centuries later, leading to its internationally renowned reputation as a beer-brewing powerhouse.

As you walk along Amsterdam’s pretty cobbled streets, passing canals and scenic gabled houses, visit a succession of different bars – a collection of much-loved locals’ favorites – and sample three quality Dutch beers as well as a typical bar snack. Hear how American and German influences have shaped the country’s brewing industry, and visit an intriguing little place where Amsterdam 16th-century nuns once made their own brews.

Detour away from the pretty back streets and wander through Amsterdam’s bold and brash Red Light District, passing fluorescent signs lighting up the windows where pouting girls flaunt their trade. Escape the neighborhood’s crowds and head to a small brewery located in the heart of the district to sample a range of their beers in an atmospheric tasting room.

Walk back toward the center of Amsterdam and finish your beer tour in a legendary local beer hall where more than 200 different varieties of beer are on offer! Sip on a pale lager, gulp down bitter ale or sample strong triple malt to end your tour on a high note. You tour ends here, so you’re ideally placed to continue your enjoying Amsterdam’s best beer if you wish!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

The tour was my self, a couple from America, and our American ex-pat tour guide, Sean. A very small group to be sure. He knew the area and history of not just beer, but Holland and the variety of native alcoholic beverages. We got to choose from a few local beers at each bar so each person could tailor the tour to their specific tastes, or be adventurous if the mood strikes. Having a light meal before the tour starts would be a good idea as you may get too effected by the drinks to fully appreciate it all by the end.

Fun and knowledgible guide! Knows all the best/true Brussels beer spots. And all the bartenders know him!
