Bavarian Beer & Schnapps Tour

Like our beer, this tour started organically. After the morning City Immersion Tour, guests wanted to continue on with their guide and the other guests over beers. It proved to be an easy going and good time. What better way is there than to relax and socialize among locals immediately after learning about Bavaria. So together, we created one of the most affordable and comprehensive Combi-Tour experiences ever.

This Munich Beer Tour is for you if you enjoy beer, want to progress on your path to being a cicerone (i.e. beer sommelier), and/or add to your beer app (e.g. Untappd) content. We visit a minimum of 5 different beer halls and beer gardens on our Munich beer tour. Each location is sponsored by a different Bavarian brewery. We strive to introduce you to taste as many as we can. Each beer hall offers a unique atmosphere (i.e. Gemütlichkeit) and we’re served regular local size beers, not small samples, in every location.

Too much is better than not enough, especially when we feel you will enjoy it. Each brewery sponsored location offers an average of 5 different beers. Your guide will describe each flavor, and more, to help you make your best possible selection. By the end of the evening, most guests are comfortable selecting beers to suit a new-found refined taste. We’ll also recommend beer halls for dinner to complete your day. Read the notes at the bottom of this page and see the value. We get you local.
