Unfortunately I forgot to do the review, it's almost 1 year ago and I still fondly remember it. Feels like a tour with friends through Hamburg. At the, the one-vine man of the round leads you through the various craft beer breweries. It is mainly about brewing and brewing culture, along with some history and life experience in connection with Hamburg. The different types of beer are not negligible in terms of taste. Above all, the different flavors are great. I can well imagine that someone who "doesn't like" beer will find another kind here that he or she learns to love. Should I ever be in Hamburg again, I'll be happy to be there again. Gladly also at the other events of the Kiezjungs. I think it's already clear, but I can warmly recommend the tour.

The beer tour is suitable for everyone who wants to get to know Hamburg's beer scene in a relaxed atmosphere. The guide and in our case the other participants were all very open, very communicative, so that we grew together as a group very quickly. Fun is definitely in the foreground! If you are interested, the guide will also answer all your questions about beer.

Very personable guide Michael, interesting and entertaining tour with delicious beer and good currywurst. Finally, we tasted some very good craft beers in a nice bar, which we will definitely visit more often.

Great tour! The guide was very authentic! 3 breweries were visited, each of which offered at least 2 different types of beer to sample.

Great and informative tour with exciting insights into the culture of beer. Philipp as tour guide did a great job!
