Beer Voyage is offering a Amsterdam to Bruges Beercation Cruise FAM Oct. 14-21. The weeklong, small group beer-centric barge cruise sails the canals of Belgium and The Netherlands on a privately chartered passenger barge and includes sightseeing, brewery visits and tastings. For example, on the way to Dordrecht from Amsterdam, guests visit a local cheese farm where we will have a chance to taste fresh cheeses and ice cream. Then they will head to La Trappe, one of only two Trappist breweries in the Netherlands for a tour and lunch with, of course, beer. Next it’s off to Brouwerij De Molen to tour the facility and taste some of the best of the Netherlands’ beers.
Land-only rates start at $1,485 pp ($450 sgl); $1,755 per companion. Rates include seven nights accommodations in private cabins on Beer Voyage’s comfort plus class passenger barge; seven breakfasts, four lunches and six dinners, including 3-course dinners prepared on board by a private first class chef, as well as a gourmet beer paired dinner ashore; privately guided tours of Amsterdam, Bruges, Ghent and Antwerp; guided tours and tastings at breweries listed; tour and tasting at a local family-run cheese farm.
