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

Had my first Brewvana experience this past Saturday, and all I have to say is WOW! The bus, the breweries, the babes - all top notch. We even got to see a special behind-the-scenes tour of an unopened brewery! I don't think I would have enjoyed myself as much if it wasn't for the wit, charm, and personality of our... More

This little "short bus" beer tour company totally exceeded my expectations. When you think brewery tours, one might imagine little sample glasses, stainless steel conical vessels towering above, and a portly brewer lecturing about ingredients. Yes, yes, and yes – but my Brewvana Brewery Tour involved a lot more – like hours of fun and exposure to craft beer I... More

If you are planning a trip to Portland and love yourself some beer, this tour is a must. We were a group of five girls from Seattle, with a tagalong Aussie and had the best time! Our driver, first timer Alex, was the best. His knowledge of the city, the breweries we stopped at and just his overall fun attitude... More

If you are visiting PDX this is a MUST and you like beer. Even if you are so-so about beer because you have never had Portland beer, this tour and all of the others will change your mind. You will get very special brews made no place else, learn more about the brewing process than you probably ever wanted to... More

From his taste in music to his side commentary, Alex was a top notch host. His energy bought out the best in the bus and continued throughout the course of the trip. He was well spoken and knowledgable and represented his state and the business well! Julia from Communications was also a delight to deal with on the lead up.... More

My wife surprised me with this, day 2 of my birthday. I had no idea we were doing this until the bus pulled up in front of the hotel. A couple of friends were with us on this and we had an absolute blast, in no small part due the guide/driver, Nikki. If you can request a particular guide, you... More
