Very nice variety of craft beers. Nice alternate activity. Please remind your participants that they may need to buy a bus ticket to go from craft stop to the next. Also snacks to complement the beers would help as some of us arrived on an empty stomach.

Brent was very knowledgeable and engaging, plus we effectively got a private tour at no extra cost. It's a great way of exploring the St Pauli and Schanze districts of Hamburg, and of learning about the city's past (and present). We visited several places we would never otherwise have found.

Informative tour, good choice of locations and beers. Our tour guide did not speak perfect English, but he was good enough for the tour.

A world of different aromas will be displayed - citrus smells, bitter hops, or roasted malt flavours - find which one you like the best!
