Good intro to Belgium beer
Jul 2020 • Friends
It was definitely good to hear more about the history of beer making in Belgium. We were brought two bars, both decent with good beers. We were expecting that we would visit three places as suggested on the itinerary. Our guide was Fraser. He has the knowledge and some jokes up his sleeve but it was sounding tired like he has done this for a long time and too many years. We discovered cherry beer from this tour. Very nice and refreshing almost like a sweet sparkling wine.

Mar 2020 • Couples
We very both very impressed with this tour and how informative it was. At first I was sceptical that is would be like a pub crawl - some background but mostly talking amongst the other attendees. Our guide Adelin was very charismatic and enthusiastic about passing on his knowledge (and passion) for beer to us, giving plenty of information for each beer before we tried It, whilst also keeping the mood light and interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to try some typical Belgian beers whilst also learning about what they are drinking and how they came to be.

Great beer, great guide, great night.
Mar 2020 • Friends
Went on this tour with a friend and it was great fun. We tried 4 different beers and moved to 3 different locations. Fraser, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was having a good time. No snacks or food is provide along the way and the beer is fairly strong, I'd recommend eating beforehand!

I Don’t Drink Beer and I Loved This
Mar 2020 • Friends
It turns out the history of humanity is intrinsically linked to the history of beer! After experiencing Fraser as a guide on the walking tour we decided to join him on the beer tasting tour. As a Coeliac I unfortunately couldn’t partake in the tastings (and as such was able to get a discounted ticket) but I sure learnt a lot about beer and the history of beer in Belgium. Fraser was once again informative, entertaining and made everyone feel welcome. An excellent way to experience Brussels at night! (My beer drinking fellow traveller assures me the beer tastings were also excellent and varied)
