This was SO MUCH FUN!!! And I must say that our tour guide, Nikki, was totally the reason. We have been on about 30 tours across the U.S. (and Toronto) in the last two years and she is tied for first place as Best Tour Guide Ever. As licensed tour guides ourselves, we do not take that title lightly! Ok,... More

We had a really terrific and knowledgable tour guide named Margot. And, the owner of the company met us at the last brewery, which was a nice added touch! The tour was very interesting, and ranged from a an experimental wing of Rogue (where they're doing interesting botanicals), to the amazing Upright and Laurelwood Breweries. I appreciated the diversity of... More

I purchased the Sunday funday tour for my husband's birthday. We had a great time! It was fun to meet new people, learn about different types of beers and go to different breweries. I'm not a big beer fan, but I actually enjoyed most of the beers we had. We will be touring again!

We visited Portland in late November/early December of 2013. The Brewvana beer tour was one of our first stops. We had a fantastic time! Our tour guide, Matt, was incredible. He was so polite and knowledgeable and did a great job telling us about Portland, it's beer scene and much more. We had some fantastic beers and some delicious food.... More

Ashley really knows the local brewing scene and you feel like you are getting inside information and learning while drinking beer! Love the fun attitude -- "Hop on the Bus" is the motto. If you want to have fun, get a feel for the craft brewing movement in Portand and how to understand the differences between the types of beers,... More

Although I had never gone on a beer tour before, I coincidentally did one in San Diego a few weeks before Brewvana that was incredible. In San Diego, a thorough "behind the scenes" tour and breakdown of the brewing process was provided at the first brewery and from that point forward, it was all about drinking, the guide catering to...
