Craft Beer Tours

For good Craft Beer lovers!

Happy Van will take you on a tour to taste the best craft beers that are produced in the Western Algarve.
After a fun ride in one of our vans, we will arrive at a fabulous place inspired by the Algarve architecture to enter their “Taproom” (a tapas bar and tasting room) where you can enjoy a sample of 3 beers (usually Pilsner, Amber Ale and Lager) accompanied by tapas in an informal and relaxed atmosphere overlooking the beautiful vineyards of this magical place.


A relaxed trip, a unique place and ... Craft Beer!

Visit to an artisan brewery with tasting of 3 beers, pilsner, amber ale and lager (or other available) accompanied by tapas.
