About Beer Wanderers
We offer guided tours of hiking trails that pass small rural breweries in Bavaria, along with cultural and culinary insights as well as expert tutelage on local beers. Trails can be as little as a couple hours to full day hikes. It's even possible to do multi-day walks and stay at the breweries themselves overnight. This is a chance to step back in time, to walk trails tread on by knights and peasants, past castles and rocky outcroppings, through lush forests and verdant valleys…to become a beer wanderer.

The hike to Andechs Monastery / Brewery is a nice way to get in some walking outside the large city. Even to Rich’s surprise us non beer drinkers had a good time. The church at the monastery was worth the hike alone. Since we were in Bavaria we had to try the beer and pretzels out on the patio. My wife confirmed she still does not like beer, but we had fun anyway. Then we hiked down to Lake Ammersee and spent some time there trying other local drinks. This was one of our first day trips while in Germany and we picked up a lot of information on what to see and how to travel from Rich.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your Beerwanderers experience and proved it's not Imperative to be a beer enthusiastic to enjoy the hike to Andechs. Jan was a great sport drinking a beer on the holy mountain and happy to expose you to some non-beery treats at the lake. Hope to see you again in Bavaria.

Beer, Conversations, and landscape with Rich were fantastic. It was easy to start conversations and he was knowledgeable about the area and especially the beer!

This was such a fun day. Rich is a great tour guide, and a fun person to hang out with. We walked the St. James Way to Andechs Monastery, and then had some beer and food at their outdoor cafe. Then we spent some time by the river (with more beer). The hike was just beautiful, and it was an area I would never have known about. I highly recommend the tour, and will definitely go another tour with Rick the next time I am in Munich.

Awesome day of fun and adventure hiking gorgeous out of the way bierkellers! A lot is due to the engaging owner/host of Beer Wanderers, Rich. His knowledge about the beers, kellers, and geographical area is endless. Never had to worry about the transportation logistics. Would do this again and that not only includes myself, but my husband, and our 30's something children. Thanks for a special day.

Thanks, Lorraine. I'm glad you all enjoyed it. A great thing about doing these tours is not only showing people things they might have otherwise missed but also meeting wonderful people like you and your family. I enjoyed my time with you equally. Hope to see you again one day!
