How to Plan a Brewery Tour

planning a brewery tour

In California, we’re known for having some of the best breweries in the country. The next time you’re want to do something fun with a group of friends, why not plan a brewery tour. Brewery tours are great for celebrating birthdays, upcoming weddings, or just for a day of fun. When you hire a professional charter bus company to do the driving, all you’ll have to worry about is whether your next beer will be a hoppy IPA or a rich stout.

Tips for Planning a Brewery Tour

When you’re planning your guest list, make sure that all of your guests are over the age of 21. While some breweries do allow minors to come in, many do not. Brewery tours are much more fun when you have a group of people, so the more the merrier. Our fleet of comfortable charter buses can accommodate groups of any size.

When choosing the breweries you want to stop at, it’s a good idea to pick locations that are somewhat close together. That will allow you to fit as many stops into your tour as possible. This is where some online research can be helpful. Many cities that have a large number of breweries also have some sort of brewer’s association in place. These organizations will usually have maps that show you were breweries are located throughout the city. Viewing one of these maps can help you pinpoint an area with a high concentration of great breweries.

Don’t forget to make time for a group meal during your brewery tour. Some breweries have in-house restaurants with great food that pairs well with their brews. During a day of drinking, taking time to eat throughout the day is important. That will help ensure that none of your group members accidentally overindulge, which could require you to cut your tour short.


If your brewery tour will take you out of your home town, you may need to book accommodations as well. Make sure you have a clear idea of what your group members’ hotel budgets are before you book. Larger cities that are known for their beers such as San Diego and Los Angles have plenty of great hotels to choose from that will fit any budget. Some nice amenities to look for in a hotel when you’re planning a group trip are adjoining rooms, free breakfast, and WiFi.
