Visit & Tasting in a Micro Brewery Hidden in the Vineyards

This small enchanting Brewery was one of the first micro-breweries of Alsace – they have been producing local beer since 1998. Set in the middle of the Alsace vineyards, here we will have you discover local beers, sipping in a tranquil area of the biergarten. Depending on the day of the week, it will be possible for you to visit the brewery and of course a special tasting will be organized for you and your party.

After the visit, we will take you to Riquewihr so that you may enjoy some time for personal discovery of this most beautiful village. Moving on, you will reach Kaysersberg another very authentic Alsace village and here you will have some time for lunch (optional).


Visit & Tasting in a Local Artisan Brewery

In the afternoon, arrive in the Welche district and visit a traditional Artisan Brewery. Now part of the Eaux de Vie museum it is the de Miscault family that has taken over, calling upon Joel Tournier, a master brewer, to take over the production. Three different versions of the local beer are brewed here, on site including blonde, amber or white beer. All the beers elaborated here use organic malt  and the residues are given over to a local farmer who recycles them by feeding his cows. You will enjoy a visit and tasting at the brewery and why not take a look at the Brandy museum just facing?


Surprise Tastings of Other Local Specialties Along the Way

After the visit, we will take you to different places depending on your choice. Your guide will suggest other authentic visits such as local farms that produce the Munster cheese or some of the best Jams of Alsace produced in Nidermorschwihr.

After the visits, return to Colmar.
