Tasting original beer from the Ruhr Area is definitely a part of any city break to the Ruhr metropolis. This is particularly good during a brewery tour through the private Moritz Fiege brewery in Bochum. Beer has been brewed here since 1878.
A brewery tour is just the thing if you want to get to know the culinary side of the Ruhr Area. At the private Moritz Fiege brewery, you experience more than simply a guided tour from the brewery office to the Swiss pine room.
You discover brewery culture. Including the welcome session, viewing the brewery and subsequent tasting session (including a snack), the tour lasts around 3 hours and is not entirely without effort, leading up and down 300 steps and through cold storage cellars.
Guided tours every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30pm, naturally including the subsequent tasting session.
