We went on our tour with another young couple and absolutely loved it! With only 4 people in the tour we were a little hesitant, but our guide, Matthew made it a ton of fun right from the start! Right away Matthew took the time to make sure we all felt comfortable and friendly with each other and took the... More

We were in town for a stag and looking for a good time. Brewvana was amazing, they were very accommodating to our schedule and we could not have asked for a better guide. Nikki was amazing and extremely patient, great sense of humour and knew how to deal with a large group of rowdy dudes. I would recommend brewvana to... More

Our knowledgeable guide, Theresa was very enthusiastic and I genuinely learnt a lot about beer. We sampled so many I lost count. The Mississippi area was a cool place and the tour was a great way to see another side of Portland outside of the city centre. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Last night my fiancé and I had a great time with Matthew (bus driver and beer guru extraordinaire) right from the start the experience was excellent. We paid 30$ extra to be picked up at our hotel, and it was worth it because we both were a little hammered at the end. The Thursday evening bus tour took us to... More

The group went to Deschutes, Pint, and Rogue. Each had a great assortment of beers to taste. Teresa, our guide, was a fountain of information about beers and brewing and included lots of fun facts about Portland and the Pearl District! It was a fun time and I would tell my friends check out Brewvana!

We went on the OBF Friday tour and had an excellent time. We went to 4 different breweries and enjoyed all of the locations. We got to sample a lot of different beers, ranging from micro-brews to a little larger craft brewer. Our guide did an excellent job and we were very satisfied with our tour. We will definitely go...

My husband and I had a great time on this tour last weekend. Our driver and tour guide, Alex, was very fun and knowledgeable about both Portland and the beer scene there. We took the Sunday Funday tour and really loved visiting Gigantic, Bridgeport, and Stormchaser. We had a diverse group on our tour who were at varying levels of... More

Our group had an great time with Margot on the Pearl Street tour. We visited Deshutes, Pints, and Rouge. Our tour included some history, background, and details on beer, Portland, and the neighborhood. There's plenty of beer and walking in between spots helped stay a bit more clear headed. We also received plenty of other recommendations of other spots to... More

My girlfriend and I drove from Vancouver Canada, that same night we were greeted by Mathew aka Joe Dirt! Lovely guy! Really felt taken care of and can't thank him and the Brewvana crew enough for the amount of knowledge and laughs that were given to us all. The Breweries were great and diverse. We had high expectation for the... More

If you like having fun, are planning a trip to Portland, and even slightly enjoy beer, then drop whatever it is you are doing right now. Seriously - drop it right now and book a tour with Brewvana. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a craft beer tour of 3 breweries last month, and this was hands down the most fun... More
