Venue: Munich

Further details and contact information

Alan Pateman


We are now finalising the study tour to Bavaria and asking for an indication of interest. If you can let me know if you are interested in attending please.

The cost has yet to be agreed but at present we think around £800 per person, depending on final numbers, and of course what happens next year with the UK’s exit from the EU! The Section will be funding  3 places for younger members as we have done for our previous tours.

Monday 13th May to Saturday 18th May 2019:

We will meet up in Munich, all attendees will be responsible for their own arrival in Germany, and there are regular services from most UK airports to Munich. (We will do some research on possible flights nearer the time)

The outline programme will be: 2 night’s hotel in Munich; 2 nights’ hotel in Regensburg & 1 night hotel in Bamberg. All transport during the tour (bus, rail or taxis) will be included in the price, as will the visits and some meals. There will be some time at leisure as well, we plan to go by rail to Nuremberg on the Saturday for a final beer and the group will then disperse from there.

The Programme should include visits to:

 Crew Brauerie; Geisinger Brauerie; HofBrauhaus Munich

Krones AG Steinecker Brewhouse equipment manufacturer; Weinhestephan Brauerie & TUM Weinhestaphan Munich

Augusteiner-Brau; Hofbrau Brauerie Munich & Konig Ludwig Schlossbrauerie

Schneiderweisses Brauerei; Kneitinger Brauerie; Gresser FV manufacturer

Weyermann Maltings & Tour of Bamberg breweries & bars
