2020 Great Swiss Beer Tour

London, Paris & Swiss Breweries, Zurich Beer Fest

April 09 – 19, 2020

As the International Beer Revolution Expansion of Independent Craft Brewers continues in Belgium, London, Scotland, Switzerland has embraced Indie Beer culture growing to 1000 breweries nearly unnoticed. Until Now!  

Thanks to Swiss Beer Legend BOV, who has tracked and tasted beers from nearly all One Thousand Swiss breweries, we have created The Great Swiss Beer Tour, visiting 10 breweries in the four corners of Switzerland, culminating in the 7th Zurich Beer Festival. So Get Ready for some great Swiss Mountain-Beering!  

As most of our guests opt for visits to London and Paris during their Beer Europe travels, The GSBT includes 4 nights exploration of London’s exploding Indie Craft Beer Culture, then Chunneling over to Paris for two nights of Champagne discovery before taking the TGV Lyria hi-speed train getting us to Geneva in just over 3 hours!  

In Switzerland we’ll visit and enjoy tastings with snacks at 10 of the top breweries, top each night off with top craft beer bars, enjoy two nights at Zurich’s 7th Craft Beer Festival and lunch at Zeughauskeller Zurichs’ famous bierkeller.
