Belgian Beer Tour

From $2899 $598 taxes

Some people’s idea of a beer adventure is checking out that pub two streets over from the local. The true beer connoisseur is a different breed. Designed with the fancy suds aficionado in mind, this eight-day trip takes you to the ancestral home of Trappist, one of the world’s finest brewers. You’ll visit the six Trappist monastery-breweries in Belgium (including the chance to taste Westvleteren, one of beerdom’s most celebrated brews), explore Brussels and Bruges, and stuff yourself with mussels, waffles, and chocolate galore. (Hey, beer-tasting is hungry work.)

Highlights: Visit all six Trappist breweries in Belgium, indulge in delicious Belgian cuisine, explore quaint towns like Bruges and Rochefort, learn about (and taste) rare beers and see the monasteries where they are made.
