Benjamin Franklin attributed the existence of beer to God's desire for men (and women!) to be happy, and many celebrations are made better with the raising of a stein.

Through Switzerland, France, Germany, Holland, and Belgium, we complement special onboard tastings with exclusive onshore experiences, leading you to the famous breweries, emerging microbreweries, and the beer halls, gardens, and pubs where Europe's love affair with beer was born.
