In doing my research before traveling to Portland I came across rave reviews about Brewvana and just KNEW that we had to give it a shot, and honestly I could not have been more pleased. From the moment Matt picked us up from our location I knew that we were going to have a blast; his energy and knowledge of... More

Matthew might just be the best driver, host and party captain Portland has to offer. Matthew drove a group of us from Portland to Eugene for Phish. Not only did he let us make multiple stops for pick ups, but had great music going and made the drive just as much part of the evening as the show! Thanks Matt!

Matthew helped myself and some friends book a bus down to the Phish show in Eugene yesterday and he was awesome! What a great guy and driver, who truly loves his job and shows genuine concern for the safety and comfort of his passengers. He treated us like family; keeping us together, making any stops we needed, picking us up... More

Mathew at Brewvana hauled our bachelor party around Portland to some fantastic breweries with some great beers and cool people. I'd say this tour is a pretty good bargain, especially with Mathew as the tour guide - the guy loves his beer and knows what he's talking about. I think we all learned a ton and had a blast.

The wife and I (in Portland for our honeymoon) did the brew tour of Ecliptic, Stormbreakers, and Hopworks with Theresa. We could not have asked for a better guide. Theresa was super funny and knew a lot about the area, which had a fairly unusual history. Unfortunately she had to leave at the end of the tour because we would... More

My wife and I participated in the walking tour of three breweries in the Pearl District and had a great time! Our guide Theresa was outstanding, very knowledgable and enthusiastic about beer, especially Portland beers. We had a great group of folks from various parts of the country. Being from Cleveland, no stranger to craft beers, we were impressed with... More

Great evening with lots of great beer info! My husband and I enjoyed the Beer Lovers Tour and learned alot about brewing beer. Riding in the Brewvana bus, we visited four of the 53 breweries in Portland, OR. The tour guide was really nice. We had never been to Portland before and missed the meeting time. He gave us directions... More

During a recent visit to Portland, we decided to take a tour of some of the beer micro brewery's. We selected Brewvana for the tour and had a spectacular time. It exceeded our expectations in every manner. The tours were interesting, the beer was great, and the best part was our tour guide, Matthew. His knowledge of every micro brewery... More

Took a group of introverted people on the behind the scenes and beer tasting tour - Matt and Margot helped break them out of their shell. Both guides, were fun, upbeat and knew what they were talking about! Everyone loved the beer choices, education and meeting the brewers! Special thanks for Matthew for the ipod playlist on the way back... More

We went on the Sunday Funday tour and had a great afternoon. Our guide, Alex, was enthusiastic about EVERYTHING…including using the wheelchair lift on the bus for the first time. We were so impressed with this company and the effort they've put into making their tours accessible to all. Oh yeah…and the beer was delicious!
