New York City is a city built by and inhabited by immigrants. To this day, immigrants outnumber native-born New Yorkers and they continue to shape the city. This tour explores the legacy of those immigrants through their food and beer, and visits two classic immigrant neighborhoods, the Lower East Side and Williamsburg. Not only are those areas rich in history but they are two of New York’s most popular neighborhoods today, full of great food and drink and catering to new, well-to-do immigrants. We’ll give you the whole history of New York as an immigrant city and fill your belly with their brews and bites.

  • Make the most of NYC! This Total Immigrant Tour combines two of our most popular adventures (Tenements, Tales, and Tastes and Brewed in Brooklyn) into one epic all-day adventure.

    Toast your way through the past and present of beer brewing in Brooklyn! Once home to 48 breweries, this ancient trade disappeared from the borough in the 1970s, only to be reborn in recent years with craft breweries leading the way. If you want a taste (quite literally…) of the history behind beer brewing in New York, look no further!

    On this NYC beer tour, we’ll take a behind-the-scenes local look at how beer is made at one of Brooklyn’s present-day breweries. Explore the pre-prohibition era as we check out 19th-century brewery buildings, visit a landmarked building, and share stories of the German immigrants who lived and worked in the neighbourhood.

    Plus, don’t forget all the craft beer and food along the way! We’ll enjoy a number of great Brooklyn brews from all kinds of spots, and stop off at a local pizza joint for lunch.

    Join us as we raise a glass to the history and masters of beer!
