What you'll do

We'll start our journey in the Jordaan at a canal side Dutch only craft beer bar. We'll stay along the outskirts of the city center, avoiding the more touristy areas. Anyone can walk around the center and find a beer. My goal is take you off the beaten path to truly get a taste of this amazing city! This is not a pub crawl, it's an adventure that will take you places you would not find or see on your own. We'll walk through 5 different areas of Amsterdam, down hidden streets and along beautiful canals. I’ll be sure to point out photo ops to take pictures as well. On our journey we'll stop at 2 distinct breweries (one of which is also home to the largest windmill in the Netherlands!) the oldest bar in the city frequented by Rembrandt 400 years ago, ending in the wonderful neighborhood of De Pijp at a bar just named one of the top 5 Best Beer Bars in Europe by Ratebeer.com(It's famous for it's sours). If you'd like afterwards, I'd happily suggest one of De Pijp's many excellent restaurants and make a reservation for you. 5 beers that I feel best represents each stop will be provided. But if you have a particular style you dislike or really like, I'll be sure to stear you in the right direction. You can also expect a bit of history about Dutch beer, brewing, Amsterdam itself, and the neighborhoods we walk through. And of course some typical dutch snacks to keep us thrirsty!
Other things to note
The tour will be approximately 3 hrs long(although we usually end up sharing an extra beer or 2 at the last stop). We will drink 5 beers along the way and the walk is about 10-12 mins between venues. Rain or shine.

Hi everyone! Drew here. I'm an American expat, bartender, and craft beer enthusiast living here in Amsterdam for over 3 years(but have been regularly visiting for over 10). While there are many things to love about the Dam, I was immediately drawn to it's wonderful beer culture and history. Having worked in hospitality as a Bartender for many years both here and in NYC, I have learned to and love to share my passion for great beer, it's history, and the wonderful establishments that serve it. I hope to share some of this with you.

We are big Craftbeer fans and had already picked out a few locations. But Drew took us to places we would not have found without him. Drew was also a great host and we had a lot of fun that night!

My husband and I are always looking for pub tours when we go on vacation, and this was by and far one of our favorites! Drew was an amazing host who changed our locations based on our backgrounds that made the experience that much better. He went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great time and had a great place for dinner afterwards. It was easy for the rest of our group to meet up with us at the last location and join in the fun. There really isn't enough great things to say about Drew and this tour! Highly recommend as a way to beer your way through Amsterdam with someone who can take you to the right places!

This was a great way to spend our day in Amsterdam. Drew was a wonderful tour guide and beer host. We all enjoyed ourselves very much. He gave us ideas on how to spend the rest of our time touring Amsterdam and was kind enough to suggest an amazing spot for dinner. Highly recommend!

Drew's Amsterdam Brew Tour was exactly what I was looking to experience while in Amsterdam. He knew the group that we were in wanted to experience more of the craft beer culture and personalized the tour. A few of the breweries and pubs were completely off the tourist radar which made it so much better. I think the tour went about 4 hours as we were enjoying the time discussing life in Amsterdam. Would highly recommend

Andrew was just the expert we wanted to have a tour with. Andrew took us off the beaten path to great pubs where we met his many friends.
