  • Behind-the-scenes tours of each brewery unavailable to most visitors
  • VIP priority seating: Skip potentially long lines and wait times

What to Expect
Begin your tour at Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver. The amount of bars in Vancouver can be overwhelming, so let your guide plan the itinerary for you. This tour also ensures you skip lines and sit down at each brewery as soon as you arrive. At each of the three breweries, your guide takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the beer-making process—a perspective rarely available to Vancouver visitors. Learn about the history of each establishment as you indulge in small-batch samples. As the tour comes to a close, say goodbye to your guide and leave with a complimentary Vancouver Brewery Tour beer glass.
