Stockholm Craft Beer tour in EnglishDate: Thursday 24 may 2018 - Thursday 14 Jun 2018
The Swedes know how and what to drink, let us show you where to do it in Gamla stan, on our walking tour Stockholm Craft Beer Tour.
Did someone say beer o’ clock? You are walking through the winding alleyways of the Old Town, where beer has flowed for centuries. No wonder you are getting in the mood for one. A certified Swedish beer judge just passed by, who also happens to be the guide of our Stockholm Craft Beer Tour. What a coincidence! Time for Stockholm Craft Beer tour!
You are about to embark on a beer tasting adventure that takes you to three different bars in the Old Town. Whilst trying out some of the best craft beers Sweden has to offer, you will hear about how beer went from being our number one drink to being banned for over thirty years (whilst hard liquor was not!). How beer relates to sexual abstinence and what the origin of the very peculiar Swedish monopoly for alcohol sales is – Systembolaget.
This craft beer tour will teach you all about the origin of Swedish Christmas and Midsummer celebrations and how they relate to beer drinking. Discover the history of the deeply rooted Swedish drinking rites as a social phenomenon, with traditions dating back to the Viking Age.
No wonder the Swedes loves beer - when the water was undrinkable beer was the only salvation. Good for you as well, when you get to enjoy craft beer after craft beer on Stockholm Craft Beer Tour. Skål, as the Swedes would say!
