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.

Tour went great. Bus was on time and played good music. Lots of fun overall! The tour guides were very excited and fun. The brewery tour at first stop was super and very intimate. The tour, beer and food at Ecliptic was great. It was also entertaining for those who chose not to drink beer. Brewvana is easy to work... More

I took some awesome shots and vlogged it so check out my YouTube channel, smiley adventures for the footage :) there was only 5 of us in the group so it was very personable.... More

Had an excellent tour through Portland enjoying some of the best beer in the country. Four breweries greeted us with their own unique approaches to brewing in addition to great libations. Our guide, Alex, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable as well as entertaining. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys fine microbrews and cheerful company.

My father in law and I enjoyed Brewvana's Imbibe tour very, very much. Our tour guide, Ivan, was super knowledgeable and had a wonderful, fun, genuine personality. Exactly what you want in a tour guide. Thanks so much Ivan!

Thank you April and Jared! Both hosts knew loads about beer and deftly managed their sodden wards for the evening. I enjoy tasting tours--a great chance to taste beers you might never order yourself and discover new favorites. Ecliptic was a great discovery! Thanks for the tip about the barley wine --I too will be a fickle lover of this... More

April and Jared were fantabulous hosts! Very knowledgeable and tons of fun managing the inebriated once everyone warmed up after the first brewery stop. Great choice of breweries! Will definitely revisit them on my next return to Portland. These tours are a perfect way to have a good time with strangers who become friends, taste beers you might never order... More
