Cultural Beer Tours to Germany -

Custom Trips for Small Groups


Brewing beer has a long history in Germany: Starting at homes as an every day food item like bread, in the 11th century monks began cultivating monastery breweries in Germany. There was a "German Brewery Boom" in the 13th century in Northern Germany when much beer was exported to Scandinavia being shipped out of the Baltic Sea and North Sea harbors. Sine 1516, the "German Purity Law" dictates that only four ingredients are allowed to brew BEER: barley (and wheat), hops, water and yeast.
