10/10 Would Recommend - This was such a great experience! It was informative, engaging, and social. We were so hungover on the morning of the tour that we were completely different people from the sober us who booked the tour the day before. This tour turned us around. We were tasting delicious beers and food, getting fresh air from walking, and meeting new people. Stefan really knows how to read a room and make the experience accommodating to everyone in it. I would absolutely do it again and couldn’t recommend it enough!

Drank lots, learned more - Great local walking tour in North Park. Our tour guide Stefan, is truly master of beer. Having a degree in Beer, his tour is more about the education. If you are looking for a drink fast, move from brewery to brewery fast, book another tour. Highly recommend if you are looking for a low key, easy walk, great company and amazing beer.
