Lancaster History
and Craft Beer Walk

Kick it off at the hub of Lancaster, our colonial square, and begin to explore the concentration of historical sites spanning three centuries – all within just a couple of blocks! The nation’s oldest continuously operating farmers market and theater, the birthplace of the Conestoga Wagon, homes of some of Lancaster’s most famous citizens, colonial churches, and much more will be brought to life through stories, characters, arts and architecture. After our old city history walk, you can whet your whistle at some of Lancaster’s finest craft beer establishments– and learn how much of our colorful past is tied to beer. From 19th-century German influence to amazing tales of prohibition ingenuity, the beer flowing through these taps reaches back across the last two centuries– and it’s delicious!

  • This is a couple-friendly, year-round experience. We can comfortably adapt to any weather conditions or personal preferences.
  • If you don’t see a time that works for you, please contact us directly.

Growing up in Lancaster I had no idea of its brewing history. It was great to experience, see and taste firsthand how brewing is still a solid part of the town! I highly recommend making this a part of your Lancaster experience!

Dive Bars of Lancaster

Dark, gritty, and sometimes smoky! If you want to scratch the underbelly of the oldest inland city in America and hang out with the locals, this experience delivers. We’ll take you to some of the oldest and hardest to find neighborhood bars in the city on this casual walking tour through the historic west side of the city. Rub shoulders with laborers, night-shift crews, hospital workers, politicians, retirees, entrepreneurs, and college students that inhabit these nostalgic Lancaster establishments. From corner bars, to holes-in-the-wall, to Irish and Italian pubs, these places are the real deal and well worth the walk! Each of these stops will take you back to a time of pool tables, dart boards and mid-western beer along with shared bar snacks for a genuine local experience.

  • This will be a walking tour, so wear comfortable walking shoes and appropriate attire.

Wow, what an amazing tour! Lots of hidden gems of knowledge in his tour! A must do while in Lancaster if you enjoy history and great beer!
