Fantastic, perfect, brilliant!

Maria our guide was incredibly friendly and talked our group of 3 through 5 different beers. It was complimented with a cheese board to share. Maria was very informative and so pleased we had her as our guide! I would definately recommend it to any traveller coming to Tallinn.

The event started late. The guide had expected us in the restaurant and not at the meeting point we were given. When we arrived at the restaurant, the craft beer to be tasted (five glasses per person) had apparently been on the table for a long time and no longer tasted particularly fresh. The guide himself was very nice and knew a lot of interesting things to report, recommended a number of special beers and explained where we can get them. Unfortunately there was a very high level of noise in the restaurant, so that we could sometimes only understand the explanations of the guide with great difficulty or not at all. Unfortunately, we can only give an average rating for the event that is interesting from the idea.
