This was a great tour! Our tour guide/designated driver was fabulous and very knowledgeable of Portland brews. I was surprised to see how much our tour guide contributed to the information being shared by the brew masters...she was great. We visited at least four breweries, but I can't say for sure because I did have a number of delicious beer... More

This was such a great experience. I bought this tour as an anniversary gift for my husband (I don't drink beer) but had an equally great time. Our driver/tour guide Matthew was awesome and really helped make a great atmosphere. I'd recommend this to people who live in Portland and for out-of-towners!!

Had a great "Behind the Scenes" tour with Margot in March 2015. It was great to have her expertise and advice on where to go and what to sample - it's hard to choose in Portland, where there are more craft breweries than hipster mustache styles! I would take another one of Brewvana's tours in a heartbeat. Of those we... More

The staff at Brewvana were top notch in helping to plan our private tour. All I had to do was specify our beer preferences, and they came back with a full itinerary that turned out to be seriously on point. Even when one of our breweries bailed at the last minute, they found an excellent replacement with only a few... More

Did the Pearl District Brewvana tour with Tour Guide Emily. She was great fun and so informative about the breweries and beer. Also great info on Portland. You had plenty of time to sample the beer and the selections Emily chose were diverse, distinct and interesting. It was fun to have a booklet to keep notes of the beer sampled.... More

This was my 3rd Brewvana beer tour. I was so fortunate to have Ashley Rose for 2 of those. I love the "beer" family atmosphere of Brewvana. The bus is half the experience (getting to know your "beer" family)!!! I recommend this to everyone I know who is traveling to Portland.

My husband and I took the Thursday night tour with Matthew. This was one of the most enjoyable parts of our stay in Portland. Matthew was incredibly knowledgeable and was a very entertaining host. We got picked up at the River Place Hotel which was about an 8 minute walk from our hotel. It was very easy to find. We... More

I had high hopes for Brewvanna, and thought that a walking tour might be a good way to enjoy the sunshine. I have been on at least 10 brewery tours, and have been making beer for a decade. This tour was more an introduction to beer tasting for beginners. The guide was knowledge and enthusiastic. She gave a very nice... More
