How to pick a tour:
We currently run tours SEVEN DAYS A WEEK and have a variety of tours to tickle your beer fancy. If you know exactly which tour you’d like to join- awesome sauce. If not, we suggest first looking at the days of the week and what time during the day you are available for a tour. Most of our tours are mid afternoon and last between three to four hours (excluding pick up and drop off times). We currently offer two different Walking Tours Monday-Saturday and Bus Tours Thursday- Sunday. Public Tours are in the order of the day of the week they run on and speciality/seasonal tours appear at the top. If you’re unsure of which tour is best for you, ask the experts! You can either shoot us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, fill out our Contact Form HERE OR call the office at 503-729-680. We’ll gladly help you decide!
How our tours work:
In order to reserve your tour seat, we require payment in advance. Our buses can accommodate up to 14 people and no, we can’t squeeze more on. Safety first! Once you reserve your seat, you simply need to show up at the pick up location you selected when booking with a smile and some cash for a tip for your tour guide. Please be on time for the bus to grab you! At each location you’ll sample beers, talk about the brewing process, ingredients in beer, Portland’s epic beer scene & history, eat some tasty appetizers, and on select tours talk with brewery staff and tour the facilities, including a behind-the-scenes look at where it all goes down. After the tour we drop you back off at your pickup location OR drop you off at a custom location if it’s anywhere in a three mile radius of the Portland Pioneer Courthouse Square located at 701 SW 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97204, for an additional $10 per stop (not person).
