Full description
Amsterdam has been a beer-loving city since the 12th century. Back then, drinking beer was as normal as drinking water. In fact, the water was so polluted that everyone drank beer, even the children. The Dutch traveled far and wide, bringing wheat and rye from Germany (where they learned how to brew beer).

After a long investigation revealed a scandal amongst the big breweries of Amsterdam, small breweries started to pop up, growing and expanding within the city. In turn, this led to the growth of Amsterdam's craft beer culture, where more and more people were interested in local beers made by local people. When you join this secret Amsterdam beer tour, you will visit and get to know two of these small breweries.

Throughout the tour, you will visit two small local breweries where you will partake in several tastings, as well as two bars loved by locals. You'll discover all the fascinating history behind these establishments while sipping on the best beers from past and present, surrounded by the beautiful Amsterdam scenery.
