The Dos & Don’ts of Beer Tours
DO Try Samples
Order a flight of beers and taste a variety of options before settling in with a pint. Many breweries sell a sampler selection to let you experience multiple flavors. Others simply give out free tastings of options that interest you. In any event, keep your mind open and be adventurous to get the most out of your beer tour. We will provide you with several samples along your journey as a part of your price of admission.
DON’T Assume They Serve Food
Some small breweries do not provide food along with their beer, although some partner with food trucks or will allow patrons to order out or bring their own treats. However, others may frown on this practice—call ahead to verify what your options are. Our tour guides are also good resources for information on which locations serve food. If you are hungry then make sure to order the food early in the stop.
DO Ask Questions
Nearly everyone working on a tasting tour—from bartenders to master brewers—are happy to field questions from patrons. Feel free to ask about the brewing process, ingredients, flavorings, and anything else that peaks your curiosity. We pride ourselves on our beer, history and tasting knowledge..ask away.
DON’T Drink Too Much
In the interest of safety and out of respect for other beer tour bus passengers, drink only in moderation and behave responsibly. We are going to have a great time but not at the expense of another participants experience, folks at the breweries relaxing with a beer or our relationship with our brewery partners.
DO Purchase a Souvenir
Buy a souvenir to remember your trip. Take home a six-pack of your favorite new beer, or opt for a T-shirt so you can represent a stop on the tour. Either way, you’ll have something to commemorate the experience. Remember you DO get to keep your taster glass from the trip but let us know what else would help you remember your journey (T-shirts can be purchased at booking online as well).
DO Dress Comfortably
We are going to be walking, riding, and relaxing on your trip so its important you dress the part. If you want to look fancy that is fine too, just remember if you want to see the behind the scenes part of the breweries they recommend close toed shoes. If you don’t care about going behind the scenes then no worries, dress how you like. This is a fun and relaxing trip so dress how you would like to.
DON’T Drive While Intoxicated
Make transportation arrangements if you plan to drink. Whether you designate a driver, bring cab fare, or schedule a ride with Uber or Lyft, you have many options to stay safe after disembarking from the beer tour bus.
