About the Tour
Germans have been brewing beer forever – when the Romans tried to expand into Germania, they found teutonic tribesman standing in their way, fermented barley wine in hand and rosy cheeks on faces – and they’re pretty darn good at it. In the early 20th century, Berlin was the biggest brewer of them all, with the most breweries of any city in the world. Then the wholesale destruction of WWII, and the disruption of the subsequent partition nigh on put the city back to square one.
Thankfully today Berlin’s beer scene is back with a vengeance. Thus we send out the call to all hopheads, beer freaks or just those with a humble respect for a nice cold beverage of an evening, to come and bathe in Berlin’s beer history and soak up (responsibly, of course) the burgeoning craft beer scene that’s mushrooming in the modern city. We’ll sample brews from all over the town at three different bars, whilst munching on a big, fat, salty pretzel or several and chatting about the mechanics of beer and beer tasting, Germany’s spiritual connection with malt, hops, water and yeast, Berlin’s rocky road to craft beer kingship and more.
