Our Guides


As a Amsterdamer Beer is one of the oldest drinks of the city. In the old days the canals where not as clean as they are today, so what did people mostly drink instead? Beer! Lots and lots of beer. But is was not as strong (and cold) as todays Beer.

I like the Beer tour, because in old Amsterdam there are some unfamiliar bars with a great history and story! To go there and show people the history and beer culture of Amsterdam is a great start of your evening!

So join me for a great tour with lots of stories and good beers!


Living in Amsterdam for some years now and it has been a great beer discovery so far! All the small pubs, breweries and great choises of beer! It became more as a hobby to try it all.

As the intrest in the history of Amsterdam and it’s beer grew I started to give tours to friend, and now as a guide. Join my tour and we will drink the best craft beer there is here in town. Brewwed by local breweries.

Good times with Kyle


As a bartender I could never stop talking about beer, loving the history form Amsterdam I became a tourguide here in the city. This was great work, but my love for beer was to strong, so I joined Beer Amsterdam to combine the work and become a beer guide!

The craft beers in Amsterdam are great, but the stories that most beer have are even better. Join me on my tour as we explore the history of Amsterdam and its realtion with beer.

Dutch Snacks

In The Netherlands no beer is complete without something “lekker” to nibble. Almost all bars offer a full range of snacks. Our guides will go through the menu and explain the importance of “borrelhapjes” to Dutch society. We will introduce you to the wonderfully tasty bitterballen, and indulge in some amazing finger foods ourselves. 

Craft beer tasting

Your guide will explain the different traditional brewing processes and ingredients, as we sample 3 freshly brewed local beers.  

Heineken story

How did Heineken become an internationally recognized brand name? The Heineken family have put there name on much more than just a beer, creating one of the richest families in the The Netherlands. But even they, in the safety of Holland, have fallen victim to a nefarious crime.


Introducing the Dutch kopstootje or “headbutt”. This is the drink that gave birth to what the English would later call gin, known in The Netherlands as Jenver. It is a juniper flavored spirit which has been stilled in The Netherlands since the 1500’s. Traditional, strong, tasty and an excellent way to start a tour!

“What customers say about this company”

Had an awesome afternoon sampling local craft beer. Max, our guide, was great and nothing was too much trouble. Very knowledgable on all things Dutch, and gave us a lot of good tips for around the city. We ended up visiting bars and breweries we would never have know existed.

If you like craft beer, book this tour!
