What does a beer tasting on board look like?

Although our craft beer cruises are mainly custom made, a beer tasting aboard could look something like this:
– You hop aboard with your group of friends at our main dock at the Keizersgracht for a 2hr private canal cruise
– Our captain & host have laid out your Dutch inspired taster platter with local cheeses, nuts, olives, meats and other snacks
– While you pour your first taster glass the captain tells you about the history of the breweries along the canal you’re passing
– After a full tasting of 3 local craft beers we stop at canal side caterer to pick up local beer snacks (bitterballen) to accompany your last taster glasses
– We drop you off at one of the Amsterdam breweries of your choice, such as Brouwerij ‘t IJ, Brouwerij de Prael or the Heineken Brewery where you can continue the exploration of the Dutch brews!
