We will meet in Lancaster’s historic Penn Square and proceed on an exploratory experience of our city and it’s’ rich, and often forgotten, brewing history. You will experience the interwoven and fascinating connections of 19th century German Brewers to the history of Lancaster. Often described as the Munich of the U.S., Lancaster at times produced as much as 20% of the nation’s beer. Through intriguing stories and insights you will learn how industry, architecture, arts, and culture enjoy a rich and symbiotic relationship with Lager Beer. You’ll visit catacombs and resurrected breweries, the unlikely industrial site that drove German immigration, the original saloon of one of the most prominent breweries of the time, and the literal end of the line for prohibition trickery – all with compelling tales that tie past to present. And just to make it interesting, we will be sampling original recipe’s of our heritage breweries along the way!

    This tour was awesome! A perfect balance between history and beer tasting. Michael was a great guide, knowledgeable in both the beer itself and the history behind it. He had a lot of fun facts and anecdotes to add from having lived in the area for so long, which made me feel like I was almost getting an exclusive “behind the scenes” tour of the city. I was a bit worried about following with a Bluetooth connection, but it was no issue at all! Overall a fun, informative tour and a great way to learn about and experience the city of Lancaster while tasting some delicious brews!

    This was my first loKal experience and it was amazing! Michael is very knowledgeable on all the history of Lancaster and on the first wave of brewers to pop up in the area. Most important of all he made us feel comfortable to be around and he is super friendly. I was skeptical going on any tour of Lancaster since I grew up there but he constantly surprised me with information that I plan on surprising my friends with who are still local. I already have recommended this tour to a few friends the next time they are in the Lancaster area.
