The story about the tour
”Guided by our knowledgeable guide we visited two local pubs in Gamla stan, tasted and discussed six different crafted beers, most of the local origin. Our guide had a lot to tell about beer making and its history in Sweden and Stockholm in particular. A very well spent few hours a Friday evening.” Leif S, TripAdvisor-user.
Did someone say beer o’clock? Walking through the winding alleyways of Stockholm’s Old Town, where beer has flowed for centuries, you find yourself in the mood for a brew. Where to go and what to have? Not to worry, we got ya! On our Stockholm Craft Beer Tour, we’ll take you to some of our favourite places and introduce you to a few must-try brewskies of the area.
Our Stockholm Craft Beer Tour a.k.a. Beer tasting adventure takes us to different locations and while sampling some of the best craft beers that Sweden has to offer, your guide (who doubles as a beer enthusiast) will share some exciting facts about Swedish beer history. Learn how beer went from being the number one drink of the country to being banned for over thirty years (while hard liquor was not!), how it was once related to sexual abstinence and what the origin of Systembolaget, the very peculiar Swedish monopoly for alcohol sales, is.
From Midsummer to Christmas, on our Stockholm Craft Beer Tour, we’ll also teach you all about how the Swedes celebrate the holidays, and how they relate to beer drinking. Did you know that some of the Swedes drinking rituals are so deeply rooted that they date all the way back to the Viking Age? Fascinating!
On this joyous and delicious stroll through Stockholm’s Old Town, we’ll come to understand why the Swedes love beer so much and show you how you can benefit from it. If that doesn’t warrant a skål (cheers in Swedish), we don’t know what does!
Please note: A non-alcoholic option is provided to guests who do not drink alcohol. Age requirement is 18 years old. The majority of this tour takes place in areas where you will have to walk on cobblestones. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes.
