    What to Expect
    How much do you like beer? Now, how much do you know about beer?

    We'll start by sampling some local brews and pair them with a house dish carefully chosen by beer experts. The idea is that you learn how to properly pair beers with food and get an overall understanding on the brewing process.

    From there on you'll walk through a safe and well illuminated route that show off this beautiful city at night, think of it as a "beer city tour" were a local guide will show you the city lights and talk to you about the major attractions on the way to the next beer.

    You'll visit three more pubs where you'll taste beers from different breweries along with a different side dish for each of them. At the end of the tour, you'll be driven back to your hotel. You also get to take a souvenir glass back home with you.

    Note: Transportation from and back to your hotel option is available. Applies only for hotels located in the Great Metropolitan Area (GAM)
