A successful tourist event with interesting content on the brewing culture of "Kölsch" as well as illuminating the history of the three locations visited during their inspection in an always very easy to understand, eloquent and at the same time fun-accented rhetoric of our guide, Stefan! The booked 2 hours passed (unfortunately) like flying! All the more a great addition to the other activities during our short break in the metropolis on the Rhin!

It was a super nice tour that was a lot of fun. We experienced and learned a lot, got to know cool breweries and were able to taste delicious Kölsch. We would definitely book it again and can only recommend it.

Nice to learn more about the history of Cologne in a casual way and while enjoying a beer. Max is a very nice storyteller!
