What to Expect
Britain is famous for its pub culture, with a tradition of brewing beer that goes back centuries. Today Britain’s ales are experiencing something of a renaissance, with many craft breweries being revived and once again a wonderful variety of beers are being created around the country.

There is much more to beer, however, than just drinking it as you’ll discover on this 2-hour tour.

During this evening master class you’ll learn about the brewing process, the many different flavors, how best to taste and enjoy beers, how to store beer, and how to serve it.

Discover pale, dark, and ruby red ales, specialty ales, gluten-free beers, and a refreshing London lager.

Your evening will be led by an expert cask master, who will also serve you typical British foods and explain which should be eaten with which beer, and why.

Enjoy traditional foods prepared by the chef on site, using only the best local ingredients. Taste the mini fish and chips, mini steak and ale pies, Gloucestershire old spot sausages, wild boar and chorizo burgers, traditional British cheddar cheese, and more!

Armed with so much new knowledge, you’ll be able to choose your favorite and end the evening enjoying a pint or a bottle from the selection you have tasted.

Your guide will be with you throughout the evening, filling you in on the history of Britain and London and the culture and traditions, answering your questions, and offering advice and insights on London for the rest of your stay.
