Wilmington, NC is home to some of the finest craft brewers in the United States. When you visit, you will immediately fall in love with the local craft beer and beer culture . There are currently 8 breweries with 3 more on the way!

Port City Brew Bus was started as a way to share our love for these amazing local beers. The all-inclusive tours we have put together for you are fun, educational, and best of all, safe.

Come take a ride on “Hoptibus Prime” as we take you to enjoy a stress-free tour of tastings at some of Wilmington’s coolest venues. Each tour includes all tastings, tours of the facilities, transportation, water, and a whole lot of fun! Book you tour today.

We are a fun and education tour, not a party bus. We reserve the right to refuse further alcohol service to passengers who become too intoxicated or behave in a manner that is not respectful of others. We reserve the right to refuse boarding, without a refund, to any guest we suspect is already intoxicated.

Guests are not permitted to bring beer on board the bus unless it was purchased at one of our stops. You may purchase growlers or other to-go beer from the breweries, and enjoy those (time permitting) between subsequent stops. Please do not take beer off of the bus until we reach our final destination.
