In downtown Nassau, meet your friendly tour guide and head to the first stop, Smuggler's Beer Garden on George Street. As you enjoy your first flight of three beer tastings, delight in the stories of the the famous Pirates of Nassau who sailed these very waters in search of gold and treasure. You will also be treated to some of the best wings on the island.
Parade to Hillside House to sample Kalik, commonly referred to as "The Beer of the Bahamas." Named after the sound the cowbells make in the popular Bahamian festival, Junkanoo, this lager is the perfect refreshment to enjoy in the courtyard of this local art gallery while enjoying bites of delicious conch fritters, the quintessential Bahamian snackfood.
Roam the historic streets of Nassau as you get acquainted with the city's local beer haunts, unearth the stories behind the buildings that once housed Blackbeard, Captain Morgan and Anne Bonney. Revisit a time of great adventure and wealth in these islands while searching for the city's crowning modern treasure - golden lagers and ales. Learn about the history of the Junkanoo festival and try your hand at shaking the cowbell or beating the goatskin drum, like a Junkanoo pro.
As the perfect end to your tour, visit Pirate Republic Brewing Co., the first and only craft brewery in the Bahamas. Housed in an historic downtown property, the brewery is producing a pilsner, Belgian white, IPA and stout for your enjoyment. Sample three of their finest brews (and maybe take in a game of beer pong or two!) while munching on authentic German pretzels with homemade mustard.
