    Kurt is an exceptionally passionate beer drinker and advocate, who excels in sharing this passion with others. His enthusiasm for beer is infectious, and while working with him I can tell that every detail is considered when creating a memorable, beer-filled experience for friends and clients alike.

    I can think of no better guide, or companion, for your Epic Beer Trip. Kurt is a brilliant navigator of Scotland and its treasured pub life, and he certainly knows a lot about beer.

    We have developed a great partnership with Captain Kurt and his Beer Trippers as they now prepare for their 3rd annual trip to DogHouse Edinburgh! The group are always such fun to host and we love to share our beery love and Scottish hospitality in the setting of our beer themed hotel! We look forward to the next visit!

    It was a pleasure to host a lovely group of people at The BrewDog Outpost in Manchester talking all things beer and brewing. The trip was clearly well planned and thought out by Captain Kurt. Hopefully I’ll catch some more Epic Beer Trippers next year!

    We’ve been very privileged to host Kurt and his Beer Trippers on the Epic Beer Trip to Scotland over the last few years. For me it’s great to meet people with such different backgrounds and beer heritages. Campervan is a highly-regarded microbrewery that sells predominantly in Scotland, so there are few chances for people outside of the UK to enjoy the beers. Epic Beer Trip offers a unique opportunity for visitors and hopefully we give an insight into the brewing traditions of Scotland, with a view to the thriving modern beer culture we enjoy here now.

    We really enjoy working with Captain Kurt and Epic Beer Trips. He brings great groups to the brewery, full of interesting people, and they fit really well with what we’re doing at Ballykilcavan.

    Captain Kurt and the Beer Trippers were great fun to host and we can’t wait to have the group return next year! The trips are really well organised and everyone had a blast visiting different cities and breweries across the North. See you again soon!

    We had the absolute pleasure of working with Captain Kurt and his team of Beer Trippers twice over a few years and look forward to working with him again. Not only is he a charming and fun guide to his team of trippers, but highly professional as well, he puts in so much work and effort to organize the best for his clients. Plus, as a company that prides itself on customer service we were so happy to work along side someone who clearly loves what he does and is happy to go the extra mile so his clients gets the absolute gold standard of service from his company. We love Epic beer Trips and long may they come back to Scotland to drink Epic beer with us!
