I ordered this tour for my boyfriends birthday as he enjoys trying beers of all kind. He wanted me to join the tour along with him, which I agreed to, but I’m not a beer person (enjoy the sour beer occasionally but that’s it). We had the luxury of having a private tour as a person didn’t show up on the day. The guide, Jennie, was excellent and catered to our tastes by asking what things we enjoyed and adjusting our route to hit places with a wide range we’d both enjoy. Along with the history of beer making we talked about everything under the sun. Despite me not liking beer that much, I tried new beer that I liked (and there were plenty of beers to try with 4 samples at every pub then a glass of whichever we liked best).
A slow start but once we got to our first venue Jenny seemed to relax. A small group of just the 8 of us meant we could discuss info & ask questions. Very interesting & informative. Nice venues & knowledgeable guide. (Jenny) Would recommend even to non beer drinkers like myself....
This tour was very good and entertaining. Our guide was very knowledgeable about beer and a fun guide. We tasted a good variety of beers in 3 different locations. I highly recommend this tour.
Jenny was very knowledgable and engaging, the places we went were interesting and diverse.
Lisa was great! I loved the history aspect of the tour and all the beers were great.
