There are many great stories to share behind each beer and the people who hand-craft and drink them!

Experience what’s on your bucket list and much more!
Every Inside Travel Experiences Beer Tour is personalized for your taste and travel style. With us, you’ll drink beer like a local, with the locals: in Germany, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Ireland, France and even Italy or Spain and Portugal. We’ll even help with beer packing tips and know how to get your favorite local brews safely and legally back to the US.  

Cross drinkers are always welcome.

    Drink with the Locals, like a Local!

    It’s always five o’clock on any Inside Travel Experiences beer tour. Happy hour starts when you’re thirsty. Taste as many local brews (with or without alcohol) as you’re craving, plus you’ll meet local beer lovers, beer brewers and passionate pub owners. Make your next vacation a beer pilgrimage with friends or a family vacation centered around your favorite adult beverage. Put on your lederhosen/dirndl and do the chicken dance (if you must)!

  • Four Beer is a Meal

    Come Hungry, Leave Happy.

    We believe that drinking beer in Europe is even better when you pair your brews with great local food. We’ll share must-try dishes in favorite places and tasty regional specialties you didn’t even know existed! Experience epic eats from street food to Michelin-Star dining and anything in between. How about a beer brunch at Spaten in Munich, or a crispy pork knuckle at Würzburg’s Kiliani beer fest?

Our Beercation Destinations

  • Bier + Biere iN Belgium

    Stand up, Raise your Glass… Twice

    Cheering like the locals can become quite an exercise in Belgium where it is considered polite to stand  – in Brussels – or to raise your glass twice – in Flanders.
    Belgium is a mecca for beer enthusiasts: The small country is dotted with breweries whose traditions go back hundreds of years. Belgian styles are anything but boring – try wild and funky lambics, seasonal farmhouse saison beers, and strong ales made in monasteries.
    And when in Belgium, you get to try specialty Trappist beers produced just for local consumption. 

    Visiting Belgium is a pilgrimage for beer enthusiasts! 

    Flanders, Wallonia or both?
  • Bier iN Germany

    Prost, Sister Brewmaster!

    Germany is full of surprises, especially when it comes to beer!
    Homeland to the Reinheitsgebot, Germany is also synonymous with a tradition to “trink Bier von hier”, a beloved tradition that dates back even further. Germans prefer their local brews and if a beer can’t be properly poured in the right glass for the style or brand, than it usually doesn’t get poured at all. Jawohl!
    Brewmasters in Germany come from all walks of life, including Sister Doris, a beloved nun and respected expert in Bavaria. Speaking of women brewers, the German gals take the lead on this expertise and blow the other countries out of the water!

    What’s your Lieblings-Bier? 

  • Birra iN Italy

    Some Truffles with your Birra?

    CinCin, carissimi Amici! Who would have guessed that Italy is an emerging craft beer destination, considering all the press that Italian grape products get. Pun intended!

    Artisanal beer, once brewed in every village, was almost extinct by the 90’s. Nowadays, there are 700 birrifici artigianali and counting, plus an abundance of beer festivals to enjoy them at!

    Just like you must taste your way through authentic regional dishes to get an understanding of real Italian food, one must drink many a birra artigianale for a better understanding of the diversity.
    Now, truffle beer is something we may not ever want to taste again…

    Impress the locals by drinking a Birra Grande!

    Andiamo a bere!
  • Cerveza iN Spain

    Beer for Breakfast, Amigos?

    Cerveza Artesanal Españalo is a must-try! There are close to 1,000 microbreweries aka Microvercecería in Spain, some dating back hundreds of years! The majority, despite hardly being known outside the country, are well established and regionally cherished. New places are always popping up, too. It’s always fun to be one of the first people to check out a new hot spot.

    Sample traditional beers that you can’t get in the USA, or try creative takes on brews with sea water or even anchovies as the featured ingredient!

    If Spanish craft beer alone wasn’t tempting enough – Iberian brews are never served alone. Luckily, a tasty Tapa, a Pintxo iN Basque Country where people cheer saying “Topa!” or, like in Granada, a full-sized appetizer accompanies each pour.

    And , it’s quite common to have a beer with breakfast, although not as common as red wine.

    Some Jamón Ibérico with your Sackman cerveza in Madrid?

    Salud + Topa¡ Let's drink iN Spain!
  • BIERE iN France

    Santé: From Mont Blanc to Côte d’Azure

    Mais oui, France is home to the most Michelin-star restaurants, Chablis, Bourdeaux & Co, but also boasts a wide selection of Bière Artisanale Française. Last, but not least, the Brasserie is where the French head for happy hour and a good simple meal.

    Discovering craft beer in France is a never-ending adventure, taking you away from the beaten path and into small(er) villages of the less touristy neighborhoods of Paris, Marseille and Lyon. The French don’t talk much about their craft beer, but they sure drink a lot of it – even on top of the Mont Blanc. But that’s a longer story…

    Blonde or Amber? Which one do you like?  

    On-y-va! Bring us to France

Cheers, Prost, Santé, Salud, CinCin…
