We did the tour on a Saturday night as a couple. There was another American couple in the group, and 4 Dutch guys. Quite a mixed audience and our host, Michael, made sure we were all having fun. I can definitely recommend the tour and will do it again, when I'm back in Cologne.
He brought us to 4 different pubs, where we always had a table for us, regardless of how busy the pub was. While trying out several different Koelsch beers, Michael talked a bit about Cologne, and the beers, but not in a typical tourist-guide style. He was very natural, threw in a joke here and there, and he often engaged the group with funny stories. The way he does it sparks a conversation in the rest of the group and after a few Koelsch we were all sharing some fun stories to each other. The 'tour' quickly turned into a fun night out with some new friends.
Michael also took care of the practicalities, like ordering, paying, and guiding us through the city to the next pub. We just had to focus on drinking the Koelsch and having a laugh with the rest of the group. My wife is pregnant, so Michael always made sure she had something non-alcoholic to drink as well.
