“Great way to spend the afternoon, see Brussels, and drink some great beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

Cesar was a great tour guide. Very personable and passionate about good beer. As he said on the tour, he's showing the group what he would show his friends. The personal touch and the fact that you aren't really in all the commercial hotspots make you feel right at home.

“Amazing time in Brussels, great beer knowledge.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

Me and my wife visited Brussels a few weeks ago for our honeymoon and had a great experience because of Cesar and Brussels Beer Tours. Me and my wife are beer nerds and what better place to visit than Brussels. Before our tour with Cesar we visited a few places that where touristy, after the tour we really got to experience Belgium and what it has to offer. This beer tour really made our trip as we were able to try and experience beers and bars we would have otherwise missed. Cesar is a great tour guide and really knows his stuff, plus he has a passion for beer so it comes naturally. If you are visiting Brussels and are looking to experience the REAL beer scene then this is a must.

“The Highlight of my Trip to Brussels!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

This tour was led by Caesar to Delirium, Cantillon Brewery, and Moeder Lambic. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable, engaging and fun. Through the course of the tour we sampled a series of different style beers with very unique and complex tastes. We also learned about the process of making beer, the proper way to pour a beer, and endless amounts of other fascinating tidbits of information. The beers were all excellent and lesser known (not the typical highly marketed Belgian beers).

At the end of the tour we enjoyed a couple more beers with Caesar at Moeder Lambic. Be warned, at the end of the tour you may be a bit tipsy and you may end up becoming a beer snob when you return home, but don't worry, it's a good thing! I also bought a few bottles of Cantillon at the brewery which Caesar was even gracious enough to offer to help carry.

You can also do the Bike tour beforehand (I wouldn't want to do it after!) at a discounted rate. I can't recommend this tour enough - to anyone from the casual beer drinker to the full on professional beer snob.

“Just amazing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

This is simply the best guided tour on which I have ever been. We were introduced to some of the best beer houses in the world and the cantillon brewery was the icing on the cake. Probably the coolest place in Belgium. The five beers which are included in the tour were awesome as was talking with the tour guide and the few other people on the tour. I am a microbrewer myself and even I got valuable information about brewing. Especially from the Cantillon brewery. By the way, lambics are much better at the brewery than anywere else. Even if you don't like lambics you might change your mind after a sip at the brewery. The tour ended in a very nice bar where we sat with the tour guide for almost three hours after the tour had ended.

“Beer in Brussels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

Sitting on the side walk in a popular cafe in Brussels with the warmth of sun enveloping us i am taken back to the incredible experience we just encountered.Sipping on a few of the more exclusive beers Belgim has to offer, i now know the difference between craft and commercial beer. Initially, i didnt expect to leave remembering much, but i am so happy i do. We walked the streets of brussels seeing some of the oldest, original bars which Brussels has to offer. We walked through streets and got first hand sights and a personally guided tour of the areas lesser seen by tourists. Of course, for me, this added a whole new dimension to the tour. I love this. The brewery was inredible. You could smell the hops and barley throughout as we wound through the machinery and learnt about 'organic' beer making.The Beer i tasted today, is nothing like i have tasted before. The destinct tastes and flavours which were discussed before indulging was exactly what i experienced. I certainly left there a complete beer Connoisseur. Ceasar has so much knowledge to share and so much experience, i was honoured to have been apart of one of his adventures.
