Myself and my fiance have lived in Vancouver for over 2 years and are experienced brewery goers (so much so that my partner even reviews beers on his instagram account @theplaidshirtguy). My future mother-in-law got us the Beer Lovers Gift Pack for our birthdays back in April but due to restrictions, one cancelled tour and a busier summer we couldn't make the tour until this weekend just gone. It was DEFINITELY worth the wait!

I should also note that we were required to wear masks when on the bus and it was optional at other times. Definitely felt covid-safe during the tour!

As previously mentioned, we have been to most breweries in the lower mainland and even the 3 Breweries we visited on the tour (Brassneck, Andina, Strangefellows) but we had never experienced them in this way before. Ryan, our guide made the day as he was so in depth with the knowledge he provided and worked with everyone on tour to ensure they had something to try that they liked as well as pushing us to go out of our beer comfort zone. With the pack we bought we got to have a growler fill each as well as a glass!

Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to experience something different and we're definitely going to gift this to our friends for Christmas!

We did this tour in October 2019 (pre-Covid), but forgot to post. It was an amazing experience. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Each of the breweries were unique and enjoyable. I love being able to try beers I can't get anywhere else. One of the brewer masters snuck me a taste of a unreleased beer that were working on (shhhh). I would definitely do this tour again.

Our first time to Vancouver, and first beer tour ever. This was outstanding! Cam (our tour guide) really did make the whole experience very enjoyable and helped us to try new beers and experience different types of flavors as well as to appreciate the process of beer creation. If you are very visiting Vancouver BC, and have a love for beer (or would like to try different kinds and get to know different flavors) then this tour is a must!

Super awesome tour today with Ryan. The VIP access was nice and made it easy to get in and out of the breweries easily, but still felt like we really spent time at 3 different places. Ryan did and excellent job selecting the brews and expanding our palates!! Visiting the breweries on our own would not have been as much fun or as impactful. We had lots of beer and all of it was very good. Thank you for the great afternoon!

Our guide Darren was awesome. We had a small group of people but they were a great bunch and we had an excellent time. Very different breweries and beers so there was something for everyone. Ordered food at our second stop which was also great. Would highly recommend this tour and thank you Darren for an excellent evening.

Our tour guide, James was early for pickup. Loved the timeliness. He was gracious, friendly and full of knowledge about our beer selections and the brewing process. Our tour mates were great! Never met any of them before but by the end of the evening we had made some new friends. Fun and interesting!

From start to finish the team at Vancouver Brewery Tours were excellent. They were happy to reply to any queries and very prompt in doing so.

Our tour was led by Jacob, who was great. A very nice guy and knowledgeable about the local scene. He was also conscious of not being too wordy with his storytelling in order to give the group the most time possible at each brewery to sample the fine beverages.

Our party really enjoyed the experience and I would highly recommend Vancouver Brewery Tours if you're visiting Vancouver and curious about the local craft scene.

Our guide Jeremy took us on a 3 hour pub tour in Gastown. We covered Steamwork, Lamplighter and Alibi Room. At the first pub, Jeremy explained in detail the beer making process, which was both informative and fun. We had a tasting palette of four craft beers at the first place, and then a pint of your choice at the remaining two pubs, with some snacks. Jeremy was always around to recommend stuff based on our tastes. He also shared tidbits of Gastown’s history when walking from one pub to another. The group was very engaging and this was a great way for people to share their experiences and learn about the craft beer movement in the city and across different parts of the world, all the while enjoying some great beer and banter. Would definitely recommend.

My daughter & son-in law surprised me with a Vancouver Brewery Tour for my 2017 Christmas Present. We took the tour on February 11th, 2018. Our Tour Guide Cindy picked us up promptly at the Waterfront Station and, after a short introduction, off we went on our tour of a few of Vancouver's Craft Breweries. As well as making the tour a fun event for us all Cindy was very knowledgeable regarding the brewing processes associated with different beers being brewed at the three Craft Breweries which we visited, which were; Brassneck Brewing, Doan's Brewing and Bridge Brewing.
Thank you Cindy for your enthusiastic and passionate approach to guiding the tour and for making this tour enjoyable for us all. It turned out to be a very thoughtful and appropriate gift for me and certainly a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
