That museum is a must for every beer drinker. You should know what you drink. Enjoy the tour and listen carefully. Afterwards you get rewarded with small snacks and beer. For sure. The fee is small.

We have visited this museum without a tour, and it was somewhat very standard compared to the other museums of that nature. Maybe guided tour would be different, but there was not such option at the entry. Very little English speaking staff as well.

Really nice Museum to see in Dortmund, a bit of Dortmund History, the evolution of Brewery Industry since the origin of cereals, distribution and advertisement of the local Beer.
