Take your love of beer to a whole new level

Ever wanted to take your love for brewing and all things beer to another level? My Culinary Boutique Beer, Food and Culture tour to Germany will extend your love affair with “Flussiges Brot” or liquid bread and all the delights that complement this historic beverage.

Commencing the 26 May 2014 this tour is hosted by Australia’s top beer educator and writer Matthew Kirkegaard and Italian beer expert and Pure Food, Wine and Cooking Tours Guide Gianluca D’Alia. Both hosts will guide you through your unique culinary experience through the natural and historical beauties of Bavaria and Austria showing you the culture, the places and the habits of this fantastic region of Europe.

During the Pure Food Wine and Cooking Tour we will visit Munich, the capital of Bavaria, moving up in Franconia where we will discover the romantic city of Bamberg, a UNESCO listed world heritage gem, and the famous city of Nuremberg. A jump over the Austrian border will take us to the charming birthplace of Mozart, the small and precious Salzburg, surrounded by its beautiful lake district and spectacular alpine region. We will visit baroque abbeys and medieval villages where history and traditions are still alive and discover the amazing scenery of alpine regions and lake districts.

Here, tradition means brewing, and this art dates back more than a thousand years. While Munich is the city of the Oktoberfest, Bamberg is blessed with nine active breweries and it is difficult to pick which of the two cities is the capital of beer in Germany. The Salzburg region is certainly the best brewing area in Austria, with a beer style sometimes different from its Bavarian neighbours. We will meet brewers to discover the traditional brewing process and try their excellent beers. There is such variety of beer styles in Bavaria and Austria that it will be almost impossible to drink the same brew twice.

We will also discover how to use this special ingredient during a cooking class with a local brewery chef. Side by side with locals, we enjoy the happy and cosy atmosphere of the traditional beer gardens and historical taverns that will be the daily locations for our convivial beer and food moments. Regional recipes, Franconian and Austrian wines, the experience of creative German chefs and the dairy products of alpine farms high in the mountains will complete this rich and fascinating culinary experience.
