Due to the changing Dutch weather it is important to make sure to be well equipped against rain and wind, and to be wearing proper foot wear for the cobbled streets.
Travelers must be 18 years old or older and have ID to show to the guide. Note that this is not a pub crawl.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.
Go beyond the iconic Heineken, Grolsch, and Amstel brands and delve deeper into the fascinating world of Dutch beer on this Amsterdam walking tour that incorporates local culture and our favourite brew! This tour is not a run of the mill pub crawl; it combines the historical and cultural significance of beer in Amsterdam, and allows you to sip on some of the famous beers made here.
You’ll begin this Amsterdam tour by meeting your enthusiastic local guide in front of the Bierkoning shop, a short distance from the original Heineken building in the city centre, an appropriate starting place for this refreshing adventure! Walk the beautiful streets of central Amsterdam, stopping at the bars in the downtown area to sample local beers and learn about the American and German influences that have shaped the Dutch brewing industry.
As you tour Amsterdam with your local guide, you’ll learn about the spots where Amsterdam’s nuns used to brew beer back in the 16th century. Then you’ll take a detour through the red light district to visit a small brewery located within this infamous area – yet another one of those local spots you don’t get to see on just any beer tour in Amsterdam!
You’ll finish this adventure at a legendary local beer hall that stocks more than 200 different varieties of beer. Choose to sip on a pale lager, gulp some bitter ale, or sample a strong triple malt to celebrate the end of the tour. Raise a glass with friends, and make a toast to Amsterdam!
From here, your local guide will be happy to give you directions back to your accommodation, or you can stay on at the beer hall for another sneaky tipple.
