Gratuity for driver and tour guide is not included in the ticket price. We work hard to make sure your tour is a fun and memorable experience. If you enjoy our services, we do accept and appreciate tips.

All tours MUST have a minimum of 6 passengers, or the tour will be canceled. We will work with you to reschedule or refund your ticket price in full.

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.

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.


It’s not you. It’s me.  Because our tours are truly behind the scenes experiences sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations and other goings on around town.  We do reserve the right to change the breweries if needed.
