Full description
Hamburg was once a huge brewery stronghold. With over 500 breweries, it was the main brewing center of the Hanseatic League, a large confederation of European merchant guilds and market towns. Beer was brewed and exported in large quantities. Wheat beer is actually a 14th-century invention from Hamburg. Today, Hamburg's Schanze area, a former meatpacking district, is a lively craft beer destination and is full of cellar pubs and trendy bars. Since around 2013, the craft beer movement in Hamburg has breathed new life into one of mankind's old drinks. Along with the old and traditional styles, there are also innovative and newly interpreted beers for you to try.  To start with, the tour visits the Ratsherrn Brewery followed by two craft beer bars. You'll get the opportunity to taste some interesting new beers and order based on which variety you like the best. Visit a bar with more than 100 beers available in addition to various other specialities. Take the opportunity to sample beers that taste more like fruit juice and other interesting flavours. Finally, relax and talk at a round table as you enjoy these tasty beers and chat with new friends.

    Very personable guide Michael, interesting and entertaining tour with delicious beer and good currywurst. Finally, we tasted some very good craft beers in a nice bar, which we will definitely visit more often.

    Super relaxed guide who was able to flexibly adapt the tour to us, we all came from the area and still learned a lot of new things. One or the other laugh was also there and the Corona rules were also adhered to.
