We went on the axe throwing / brewery tour trip. Very good value considering the beer was paid for, the entertainment was paid for, and we were shuttled around to each location. Very cool way to see a new city (or four)!

Just went on the hatchet and haps tour. We got a chance to throw axes first and then explored the best breweries in the quad cities! Was a very enjoyable day!

Our family took a tour with AltSTATES travel and absolutely made the right decision. Brendan was our driver and guide and provided great hospitality and information about the quad cities. If you are looking to do a tour check these guys out.

Ten of us went on Brendan’s beer tour on Saturday. What a great experience! Even though most of us were from the Quad Cities, it felt like we were out of town. Everyone had an excellent time. Brendan had planned the 3-1/2 hour tour perfectly. Starting with the Great River Brewery where we sampled a variety of beers and had an informative and highly entertaining tour of the brewery. Then we moved on to the Blue Cat Brew Pub for another enjoyable tour and where we experienced some of their brews and decided to order some appetizers as we sat and talked about what we had seen (and tasted) so far. Then we moved on to Wake Brewing for some of their offerings and where we had the opportunity to speak at length with the owner who was all in, in making us feel welcome. As it was a hot day, Brendan even went out of his way to start the van and cool it off between each stop to be sure it was cool and comfortable from the moment we got in. Where do you get that kind of service? Brendan was highly personable during the entire trip, and with Brendan, it’s all about the comfort and satisfaction of his customers. I highly recommend this tour to both Quad Citizens and out-of-towners.

For the QC Brewery Excursion, se met Brendan at Great River Brewery where we took the tour and sampled a few beers and had 2 pints! The have a TON of different beer options!!! Then we went to Blue Cat Brew Pub and had some lunch and another pint. Blue Cat is smaller - only had a couple of beers they brew on tap and not much to see for the brewery...but we got to enjoy Brendan's company and learn more about him and what he's doing. Lastly, we stopped at Wake Brewing Company, where we got to talk to one of the owners and have a sample and another beer! Then Brendan drove us back to Great River. It's definitely not a tour for the faint of heart - you will sample and drink a lot of different beers (so you might want to consider taking an Uber/Lyft to get to/from Great River). There was a last minute cancellation so there were just 2 of us on our tour, but we had a lot of fun learning about some local breweries. I would highly recommend this tour, and am looking forward to trying out some of altSTATES Travel's other opportunities!
