Christmastime Beer Cruise in Europe

Now here’s an itinerary worthy of a toast: a holiday beer cruise on AmaWaterways.

The itinerary showcases a variety of regional beers, local cuisine and delicacies, special excursions, a beer pairing dinner and brewery tours plus onboard discussions and tastings hosted by beer connoisseur and author, Don Russell.

Russell has written a weekly beer column for the Philadelphia Daily News (under the byline “Joe Sixpack”) for 15 years. The author of three books, he has traveled the world in search of great beers and won numerous journalism awards along the way.

There’s more to this holiday cruise than beer: it’s time for Europe’s Christmas markets, and guests will have the chance to enjoy them on this seven-night cruise from Nuremberg, Germany, to Budapest, Hungary. Embarkation is December 14, 2015, aboard the AmaPrima.
