We were lucky enough to join a Saturday "behind the scenes" tour which enabled us and the other guests to not only taste a heap of local craft beer, but to get inside the breweries and have time with some of the local brewers. From the get-go, the Brewvana team made sure we were well informed and had enough information... More

Did the Old School tour on a Friday afternoon. Our driver/guide Alex was super knowledgable about brewing and Portland's beer culture and history. I would highly recommend this for anyone who loves beer and is interested in seeing different parts of Portland that tourists might otherwise miss.

This was a great experience. We have visited 3 breweries, in each we have sampled 4 beers, so there was a great variety of styles and tastes. Our guide Matthew was excellent, he was knowledgeable, helpful and fun, he told us a lot about how beers are made, what special is in each brewery and how different styles of beer... More

Brewvana was a wicked time, it completely made my weekend in Portland. The beer was great, Rosy, our bus, was a beauty and Alex killed it as our tour guide. And it didn't hurt that he was a cutie ;) If you're spending any time in Portland it's a must do. Happy drinking!

This was my first tour with Brewvana and I couldn't have been more pleased from beginning to end. Their website is easy to navigate and to order tickets through. They communicated periodically with confirmations and updates and reminders. Everything went as planned, without a single hitch from gathering at the starting point, having our first glass of brew, taking our... More

The Beer Lover's tour from Brewvanna is awesome! We had the best tour guide ever! His name was Matthew, a blonde hair brewster from Maryland with the raddest bus I've ever seen. I learned a TON about beer and with good food, great people, and a fun trivia game ending I had a great time.

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.
