Tour Belgium with Ninkasi Brewing

Ninkasi Brewing invites friends and fans of the brewery to join them this September for a trip over the pond: a 7-day beer tour in Belgium. Jamie Floyd, the founder and top brewer at Ninkasi Brewing, serves as your host for Over the Pond: Belgium Bound with Ninkasi Brewing.

Working with Zephyr Adventures, Ninkasi created a first class beer itinerary, not to mention a delicious look at Belgium’s culture and history. Yes, you will taste a lot of beer and learn a lot about Belgium’s beer culture, but this tour also offers you a taste of the country’s delicious food, another important part of the “Burgundian lifestyle.”


Sacha Seggai serves as your guide. From Bruges to Watou, Brussels to Ghent, benefit from Sacha’s understanding of his homeland’s languages, history, and culture.

I list a few trip highlights below. For all the details, including the actual itinerary, visit the website.
