Craft Beer and German Beer Tour
This walk will start at the Pfferbräu brewery Schönhauser Allee 176 opposite Ubahn Senefelderplatz, where you can meet with the local guide, you will recognize him by the poster of Alternative Berlin. From there you will go to this traditional beer experience in the best bars in Berlin.
Then you will meet some bars, craft beer factories and most renowned breweries in the city where at each point you can taste a delicious German beer. You will know its origins from the middle ages, as beer still has a great tradition during the Second World War and through the industrial revolution.
Together with the local guide, you will also learn about the process of making and distributing this product which is one of the hobbies of the oldest Germans of all time. The end point may vary according to the location of the last bar on the route.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a limit to capacity on the tours?
Yes, we try to keep our tours intimate to guarantee a nice experience for everybody on tour while respecting the neighbourhoods we visit. Therefor we don´t sell more than about 20 tickets per guide.
We try to have enough guides scheduled for the Free Tours as well, but as registration is not necessary for this tour (everybody can join and we don´t want to send people away) one guide could possibly end up with a group of more than 20. We thank you for your understanding.
Do I need a train ticket for the tours?/What is an AB transport ticket?/Where do I get the ticket?
On our tours we cover most distances on foot, but sometimes it is necessary to take the train, as the Berliners do, if the distances are too long. The ticket for the public transport is not included in the tour so it is best if you get it before the tour starts. You will need a ticket for the A and B zone and we recommend a day pass which for the price of under three journeys. You can get the ticket at the machines in any station, and these can be set to English, French and many other languages. They are also available in the many „Spätkaufs“ (the famous little 24 hrs shops that also sell cigarettes, newspapers etc.)
The tickets are valid for subways, trains, buses and trams.
Where does the tour end?
In some cases this can vary depending on the season and day. If you are unsure it is best you ask your guide at the start where the tour will end. No matter where this may be our guides will take the time to explain you how to get back to Alexanderplatz or anywhere else and which trains to take.
Is the tour wheelchair accessible?
Most of our tours are. Unfortunately there are still some public transport stations that are still not barrier free. Please contact us and let us know which tour you are planning to take so we can let the guide know beforehand. They will adjust the route accordingly.
Can I bring my dog on the tour?
Out of respect to our other customers, who could be afraid of or allergic to dogs etc we don´t allow any dogs on our tours.
Will the tour run in all weather conditions?
Our tours run in any weather conditions as long as it is not considered to be dangerous.
Why do I have to bring an ID to the pub crawl?
In Germany it is the law to have an ID with you when attending public events and buildings such as clubs. Therefore we can´t take you on the tour without a valid ID, drivers license or passport.
