We operated our first Belgium trip in 1998, and offer a full range of itineraries.

We offer the following Belgian Beer Tours on an annual basis.

 

Farmhouse Ales of Belgium and France

May 19 - 29, 2011
9 nights - $2795, $535

Northern France and southern Belgium share a meandering, often invisible border that traverses one of the worthiest beer regions on earth. Biere de Garde, Trappists, and Saison producers are all well represented in this compact area. We begin and end in Brussels -- with stays in the windmill capped, hill-top city of Cassel, France; beautiful, untouristed Tournai; and Bouillon -- in the shadow of one of Europe's finest examples of fortified castles. Small breweries with eager brewmasters, traditional Flemish estaminets with great local food and beers, and a selection of worthy cultural sites await. Click for details.

The Great Beers of Belgium

October 6 - 16, 2011
9 nights - $2895, $ 585

Our classic, quintessential, best-of-beer-heaven trip takes in as many classic Belgian styles and producers as we can fit into 10 days. From Lambic to Trappists, Saisons to Flemmish Browns, discover the endless variety as we travel in style on our Beer Bus throughout Belgium. Stay in fine, centrally located hotels and travel via private motor coach and rail to some of the best beer destinations in Belgium. Behind the scenes visits, ample doses of art, architecture and history, and plenty of beer tasting make this a beer lover's dream trip. Beautiful in their own right, Brussels, Brugge and Antwerp are simply more fun when you dive into their beer culture.

Life on a BeerTrip...

About Life on a Beer Trip:

Most trips begin at the hotel in the city where the trip begins, assistance and advice on getting there is provided. (Meeting a group in the airport is just no fun).

We stay in nice hotels in great locations.

Breakfast is included daily.

3 or 4 Lunches and 3 or 4 Dinners WITH BEER are also included... usually in brewery taps or beer cuisine restaurants.

A couple days we get up early to go somewhere worthwhile...

We hire a private coach or ride fast trains to travel between cities -- often we are a traveling tasting room, sampling local flavors of all sorts.

There's a lot of beer available... several brewery visits and special tastings, as well as beer meals and "pub crawls" -- at your discretion of course.

Most trips include guided walking tours of each city we visit.

Most trips have unscheduled free days to explore on your own.

The People on Beer Trips range in age from 23 to 77 (so far). Generally there are more men than women, but not always. Sometimes we have beer experts and brewers along, sometimes home brewers, sometimes people who simply want to visit Europe and drink beer with good people!
