Bernese Beer Tour

The guided tour through Bernese beer culture! Find out everything there is to know about beer with the help of an experienced beer sommelier: thanks to the tour and the expert’s knowledge, you’ll have interesting facts and anecdotes up your sleeve the next time you make small talk!

Why does beer from the bottle taste different than beer from the glass? The answer to this and many other questions can be found on the beer tour – and not only in theory: at four locations, two restaurant breweries and two select beer bars in Bern’s Old City, the participants learn everything about beer and the process of brewing. Naturally, a professional beer tasting of 14 different beers (1 dl each) is also part of the programme.

The following four locations offer exclusive insights into the diversity of the Bernese art of brewing:
