Travel & Adventure


Beer is culture, history, seasonality, agriculture.

It has fueled revolutions and riots, technology and taxation, art, science, and politics. Join me for an adventure into the past, present, and future of beer. We’ll drink, eat, travel, and learn about the story of beer, and have a lot of fun in the process.

My business will soon be expanding into beer tourism group trips. I speak English, German, and French, and I’m in discussions with tour companies about leading various trips. Contact me about joining my next trip or about arranging a new trip for your group!

Trips I’ve created and done on my own, and could bring your group along on:

2 days at Oktoberfest plus 5 days of brewery visits in Munich, the Alps, and on the Danube
