Full description
Go beyond the iconic Heineken, Grolsch and Amstel brands and delve deeper into the fascinating world of Dutch beer on this walking tour that incorporates lots of drink stops! To begin our tour, meet your enthusiastic local guide opposite the original Heineken building, an appropriate starting place for this refreshing adventure! Walk the beautiful streets of Amsterdam, stopping at the bars of the downtown area to sample local beers and learn about the American and German influences that have shaped the Dutch brewing industry. Stop at the New Market area to visit the spot where Amsterdam’s monks used to brew beer back in the 16th century, then choose to take an optional detour through the red light district to visit a small brewery located in this infamous area. Continue on and finish the adventure at a legendary local beer hall that stocks more than 200 different varieties of beer! Beer lovers will be amazed at the range on offer here. Choose to sip on a pale lager, gulp some golden ale or sample a strong stout to celebrate the end of the tour. Raise a glass with friends, make a toast to Amsterdam and don’t forget to check out the on-site beer retail store to stock up on your favourite brew or pick up some specialised beer glasses. This tantalising tour ends here, so you are free to head back to your accommodation, stay on at the beer hall for another sneaky tipple or explore this magnetic city a little more at your own pace.

A fun, relaxing evening for beer lovers!

This tour was a great introduction to the town while enjoying some delicious beer and good company. The tour was small and did not feel like a "tour". It felt more like hanging out with a couple of pals while walking the streets of Amsterdam. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable not only about the beer, but also about the local history, highlights and the best places to visit/eat/drink. I would not only recommend this tour, I would do it again.
