Your trip to Brussels is incomplete until you’ve tried a local brew - or a few. Don’t worry, you’re in good hands with one of our beer loving local Brussels hosts, who will take you on a personalized experience of a few of the city’s best brew houses.

Let us know your vibe, be it trendy micro-breweries, traditional taverns, underground beer cellars or visit a Belgian abbey and sip something brewed by monks. Then, with your host alongside, you’ll weave (not stagger) between spots where you can enjoy Lambic, Saison, Dubbel and Witbier and maybe learn more about the history of beer brewing in Belgium, the Trappist beers and the city’s beer culture.

With over 1100 original Belgian beers waiting for you to discover, it’s impossible (and not something we’d recommend) to try and get through them all in 3 hours, but your host will definitely be able to show you to a few that will tickle your tastebuds!

Along the way you can enjoy some snacks, be they Belgian frites or a cheese board to share, and get recommendations for more great places to sip your way through a few more beers during the rest of your trip.

  • Spend 3 hours with a beer-loving host who will introduce you to Brussels’ local beer scene

  • Your experience, your vibe - whether you want to bar hop, pub crawl or savor the moment at a single Belgian Abbey, the choice is yours

  • Get to sample traditional or innovative beers, fruity or hoppy, strong or light - you’re bound to find a new favorite tipple along the way

  • Have a laid back, enjoyable time with a Brussels local – kicking back and learning about something we can all agree on – good beer!

  • Get recommendations about local bars and other trendy drinking spots to enjoy a Belgian brew

This experience will be personalized to you!

Great Start for our Visit to Brussels

We booked a three-hour walking tour with City Unscripted through Trip Advisor, and it could not have been a better introduction for my wife's and my first trip to Brussels. Our guide, Andrea, was amazingly knowledgeable about Belgian history and culture. This was a private tour, and Andrea was most helpfully solicitous about our interests before we began. We unreservedly recommend this tour for anyone starting their visit in Brussels.

Worth every penny!

My husband is a beer lover; I am not. But, while in Belgium, I was excited to book a beer tour for us if for no other reason than because I thought he would love it. I found this tour and booked it because it didn't require us to be part of a big group. We were matched with Milton, and he designed an amazing tour for us and took all of our interests into account. He even found beers for me that I liked ( which was hard because I generally don't like beer). Every beer wasn't amazing, but he did a great job leading us through all kinds of different pubs and all kinds of different beer. And, he was very easy to get along with. It was, for me, the best part of our time in Belgium. He even have us restaurant recommendations! It was a great day and was worth every penny!!! Thank you, Milton!

A great introduction to Brussels!

Exploring Brussels with Michael was a GREAT way for us to see as much as possible in the short amount of time we had. I have to say, from the booking process to the pre-tour communication, to the flexibility of last minute changes to our itinerary, to the tour itself, this was a wonderful way to see Brussels. Michael was a great host and took our wish list and our interests to heart and we had the best time in all the touristy highlights which were not to be missed as well as the "off the beaten path" local spots well worth the time to visit. And....I must say the CHOCOLATE was AMAZING (and surprisingly did make it home!!) Thank you Michael for the wonderful experience!! Until next time...
