With large imagery and engaging video that transports you to majestic Belgium now!  You can almost smell the sweet aroma of the beer and feel a gentle Ardennes Mountain breeze on your face as you click around the site.  In fact, why not pour yourself a Belgian beer now while you do it so you can really smell and taste it?  

You can view all the tours by theme or by calendar.  Viewing the calendar you’ll quickly see many tours are back-to-back so you can combine them and create the ultimate beer tour of your dreams with just one flight across the pond.  This new site is exciting, responsive to personal devices, intuitive and makes signing up and submitting a deposit online easier than ever.  No need to send anything through the U.S. Mail.

Most of these images were taken by me on tours using just my iPhone.  Others are used with permission from brewers and freelance photographers, all friends of BBM! 

We also take this opportunity to introduce you to the beer city of Bamberg, Germany, another one of the last bastions of Old World beer culture and a place that should be on every beer enthusiast’s list of places to visit.  Bamberg: There’s No Place Like It!

I hope these images and this new easy-to-use site will inspire you to visit the magic of Belgium.  I invite you to join us as we meet the fascinating and friendly people who make these eventful beers, share in their cuisine, enjoy their scenic settings, experience history and most of all enjoy the pure pleasure of these fine beers right at the source!

People often ask me, “Do you ever get tired of going to Belgium?,” and I say, “No, I get tired of leaving Belgium.”

OUR most popular TOURS...select one by theme or calendar...

Legendary Zythos Beer Festival Tour

The Zythos Beer Festival (ZBF), is the granddaddy of ‘em all in Belgium. Nowhere near the scale of Oktoberfest, a much more intimate and personal beer festival, it is where many of Belgium’s diverse, unique and intensely-flavored beers, and their brewers come together in one place.   In 2015, the Festival will be held near Leuven for the fourth time in its history.

Lonely Monks Trappist Beer Tour of Belgium & the Netherlands

Beer is one of the few indulgences monks are permitted and thus one of the reasons they know how to brew special beers so incredibly well. On this very special tour we will visit eight Trappist abbeys that brew beer (six in Belgium and two just across the border in the Netherlands) and sample their beers. Read more...

Wild & Spontaneous Beer Tour of Belgium

By popular demand! The focus of this tour is lambics, geuzes, and red and brown Flemish Ales.  Some Americans call these "sour beers."  In odd years it will include Toer de Geuze and in even years the Night of the Great Thirst Lambic Festival.  In 2016, this tour will also include the Legendary Zythos Beer Festival.

Ardennes Mountain beer tour of Belgium 

Arguably one of the most beautiful regions in Belgium, the Ardennes Mountains are rich with beer culture, scenery, gourmet cuisine (ham, trout, etc.), enchanting towns and history (Battle of the Bulge & Waterloo). On this tour we plan to visit the breweries of Achouffe, Caracole, Fantome, Rochefort, Orval, Hoegaarden, Trois Forquets and La Ferme Au Chene. Read more...

BEST DAMN FARMHOUSE ALE BEER TOUR of Belgium & France

Venture into the elusive and obscure world of saisons and biére de gardes, whose roots can be traced to rustic ales once brewed on farms in this wide area once known as the Kingdom of Flanders.  We’ll visit some small independent breweries still located on working farms and some large, modern ones, all situated in scenic countryside locations, where we’ll experience these satisfying ales.  Read more...

SPRING BEER GARDEN TOUR OF BAMBERG

In Bamberg and the Franconia region, they call beer gardens beer kellers because many of these forested hillside beer gardens traditionally were (and are) on top the underground cellars where they lagered the beer. Sometimes people will refer to going “on” the beer keller, rather than “to” the beer keller, which when you know the backstory makes sense. Read more...


Bruges beer Festival Tour

I always tell people if you can only go one place in Belgium, go to Bruges.  I also tell them, you cannot spend too much time in Bruges.  And as many times as I’ve been there, I still find it exciting, fascinating and electrical with beery possibilities.  The Bruges Beer Festival and this particular tour make it even more attractive than normal.   Read more...

Fall Bock Beer Tour of Bamberg

The Germans call it Bockbierzeit, loosely translated to bock beer time.  Each fall the breweries of this region release their delicious bock beers for the winter, which may be different than ones you’ve had in the past.  They have a wide range of flavors and can be malty, sweet, deceptively strong and even pale in color. Read more...

“...We both want to thank you again for doing such a good job putting this tour together and leading it. Insuring that everything runs smoothly and looks effortless takes a tremendous amount of work and a diverse skill set and you did an extraordinary job putting everything together. In the past Anne and I have always put our own trips together, and we were a little nervous about what it would be like to do a group tour. However, our fears turned out to be completely unfounded and we both agree that there is no way we could have come close to duplicating your tour on our own. We are already talking about what our next tour should be.”
