I laughed, I cried, I ate, I drank, I rode while beeing seranaded on a wealth of craft beer knowlege with great fun. Our tour guide 'Matt' could not have been any better. He put all at ease and we all fermented together to make a hoppier bunch of new BrewVana fans.

This is by far the most fun I've had on a brewery tour. We went on a Friday and visited three breweries, one was Elliptic and the other was in an old renovated school. April, our brew guide and self-described beer nerd, was very entertaining and fun to have as a tour guide. You will drink a lot of beer... More

Great tour. Our driver and guide was the best. She was very knowledgeable about Portland, the beer, and the breweries. Also, the atmosphere was just a blast. Worth the $$ I would recommend this to my friends for sure!!

What an amazing way to experience some beers and get a great narrative of not only the beers but some fun Portland facts. April was a great guide who's beer knowledge was exceptional. I would highly recommend this tour and in fact we're probably going to do another one while we're here.

Would definitely recommend for visitors to Portland but also to natives. Six of us "Portlanders" participated and visited cool places we'd never seen before - all within a mile of our homes! Alex was a terrific host and we all had a great time. High marks all around. Cheers. - the "good 'ol boys" on flickr

Went with Ivan on his first solo tour. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining. The tour is good for novices and geeks. Good information on the basics of how beer is made with the opportunities to talk to the brewers for advanced info.
