Owner description: Drink beer like a local! Join us in an afternoon tour around several off-the-beaten-track bars where you'll drink some amazing craft beers you won't find abroad. We guarantee that we will find something for you in the huge catalog of Belgian beers that will surprise, interest, excite or delight you, because if you can't find that in Brussels, you can't find it anywhere!

We were showed around very nice bars and tasted great beers. The guide was very knowledgeable and thought us a lot about beer brewing, culture and sampling.

We had a group of 28 lads on a stag do, which I think is much larger than the usual beer tours. The host (Oscar) was great organising things before the trip and managed to keep a large group of lads entertained for a good 3 hours.

The selection of beers was good, although one or two of the more 'interesting' beers weren't quite to my liking it was good to try something different.

I would recommend this to any groups large or small. Oscar was great at explaining the beers and keeping everyone interested in the history of the beers.

Other reviews have already done this tour justice. Great beer, great cheese, great times. Myself, my wife, her sister & a friend, a 6 hour tour (including the shouts had after the tour concluded) & great memories. Pepjin was a brilliant guide. Not only was he knowledgeable about the beers but he was right into the history of the breweries & the area. Also he brewed himself. As a fellow brewer it's great to drink with someone who also does this as I think it gives you an extra enjoyment & appreciation factor, coming from a society that usually drinks big fat pints of beer & nothing else. A Beer 'tasting' session that left me with nothing but warm, happy feelings (not too bad a hangover the next day either considering those Belgian beers pack a punch!) Cheers guys, very much recommended.

Two of us joined a woman from New York on a tour with Pepijn who was very friendly and knowledgeable, not only about beer but about Brussels in general. We went to 3 pubs and tried 10 beers (using smallish but sufficiently sized tasting glasses - large amounts of beer would defeat the purpose). Pepijn introduced us to new beers (to us), ranging from Kriek to Trappiste beers, telling us the stories of the beers and provided a range of cheeses for us to share. Our tour lasted just on 4 hours, because we lingered at the last pub, having become almost friends. This was a great way to explore parts of Brussels that are not frequented by tourists and to discover the stories of Belgian beer. Belgian beers have a purity about them and one feels good after sampling them, especially with a guide such as Pepijn

We love Belgium beers and wanted to gain some insight on a local level; this was definitely the way to go. Our guide Oscar was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, accommodating, and a lot of fun to hang with for a few hours. Highly recommend this experience!
