Anyone done a trip visiting breweries around Europe? Know of a travel agency that does these?

I am going to be in Germany for Wacken Open Air (a Metal music festival) the end of July/begining of August. I am hoping to (for a couple weeks before or after) to go around and see some breweries, in Germany at least but hopefully all over Europe.

Any suggestions?
Kegged: Berlinerweisse, Dubbel, Galaxy Wheat
Bottled: Golden Strong, Mild, IIPA, Rauch
Fermenting: Saison, Imperial Wheat Stout, Brett Saison, APA, Brett Roggenbier

The Guinness and Heineken Brewery's are the only tours I've been on in Europe, both are worthwhile.

I'd also like to hear some suggestions for tours in Germany. Hopefully I'll be visiting this September and be able to catch a few days of Oktoberfest.

I am living in Germany at the moment. I don't know of any tours, but will look around for you and see if I can find any information.

I did the Fullers tour in London. That was kind of like a personal pilgrimage.

I did the Gueze tour in Belgium. I'd really recommend that one seeing as you can't get real lambic outside Belgium unless you make it yourself.

Who's playing Wacken?

Saw Cryptopsy a while back.
