great tour

The guide was great, he had a great way to give us a lot of knowledge about beer, but in a way that didn't seem like a lecture. A restaurant wasn't so nice because the music was very loud and we couldn't understand it well, it wasn't really necessary because we were alone. Apparently we were very fast and so the tour was over after 3 hours. I can recommend it.

Interesting tour and a great way to get to know the city.

Craft beer is big in Germany, especially Hamburg and this tour lets you know all bout it. Great info from the guide on the history of Hamburg, the brewing process and different tastes of beer. If you like beers other than mass produced lager, this is a great tour for you.

Local beers were tasted and you also get to know locations that you would not necessarily have found as a tourist. Our guide gave us a lot of background knowledge about beer brewing and the craft beer scene. Needs improvement: The tour ends a bit off the beaten track.
