Theresa was the most knowledgeable, energetic and passionate brew tour guide ever! She not only tells you about the beer brewing process but gives you interesting facts about Portland's history. We were also fortunate enough to meet the brew masters at the breweries and all of them were super kind and answered all our questions! For my husband and I,... More

This is the story of 7 strangers forced to get on a bus together, drink beer, learn a little, and have a ton of fun. Not only was Alex the best possible tour guide, but we ended up with our very own Brewer on our trip as well ( Cody -Old Town ). The trip was informative, and at each... More

We went on the walking tour to three different breweries and really enjoyed it. Our guide Theresa was extremely knowledgeable on her history of Portland, as well as the breweries in and around the Portland area. She also shared a wealth of knowledge on beer 101! The walk was no bad at all as all breweries were in a close... More

This tour is awesome. Never been to Portland? Have been but don't know what brewery's to go to? Do you like beer and a little history? Do this tour then. It's fun, it's interesting, and it's delicious. Plus you may meet some cool like minded people from a different part of the world. If and when you book this tour... More

Nikki was the best host on Earth at the time that she did our tour. She did an exceptional job, dealt with some probably adverse circumstances, and took it all in stride, all while providing an excellent tour. I would recommend her to any and all fans of beer, decency, and sanity.

Yet another great experience with Brewvana! Matt is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guy and drove our semi-private tour to Eugene with no problems! He helped to make sure everyone was happy, accounted for (which can be trouble with my group of wandering friends) and hydrated on our way home! I would highly recommend a scheduled Brewvana tour or a private... More

Be sure to pay attention to which tour you are taking, and be willing to experience all types of beer, not just what is in your comfort zone. That being said we learned a lot on our tour and enjoyed the diversity of the group and the wealth of knowledge tour guide Alex had to offer. We would definitely do... More

The Brewvana Tour was AWESOME! Our guide Matthew was world class and made everyone comfortable and relaxed right away. His knowledge of craft beer and the city were vast and he was able to answer any questions we had. The 3 stops along the way were unique and also had awesome staff, The Commonds was by far the best beer... More
