Granite State Growler Tours, the first craft brewery tour bus in New Hampshire and a Best of NH 2013 winner chosen by NH magazine, is roaming for foam! Hop on our bus, affectionately named 'Greta the Growler Getta', and visit the best craft breweries on the NH seacoast.

Your four-hour adventure includes exclusive personal tours given by the brewers themselves so you can talk to them one on one. Tastings are included in the ticket price. If you like what you tried, grab a growler and we'll keep it iced down for you. As we roam from tap to tap, our knowledgeable guide will entertain and intrigue you with unique facts and little-known stories about the rich and foamy history of brewing in NH.

With great hops at every stop, let Granite State Growler Tours do the driving while you have all the fun. Meet us for beer every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Are you looking for a private or group tour? Do you want a custom itinerary for your special event? Just give us a call to plan your trip. We can visit over 27 different breweries and distilleries.

I booked an entire bus for my husband's 40th birthday. They sent a link to me to send to my guests to purchase tickets, which made things very easy. They let us decorate the bus and took us to fabulous micro breweries in the area. They also provided water and delicious homemade pretzels. The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, funny... More

We went on the tour on a Saturday afternoon/night. The tour guides were funny and easy to talk to. They also had great stories to keep us entertained on the ride. The pretzels were delicious! Not to mention the beer. It was great.

Our Friday "Over the Border" tour started in Newburyport and we went to Newburyport Brewing Company and Riverwalk Brewing... More

Our driver & guide were great and informative. We had a great time touring all the breweries! :) I will definitely look into going on another tour and hope to visit other breweries as well. Loved them all but Neighborhood Brewing Company was my favorite!!

Mark is a very entertaining guide, the bus is clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the history of each of the breweries we visited, and they had some interesting tasting points. If it wasn't for the Beer bus we wouldn't know about these great entrepreneurs. Thanks!

We had a blast on the growler bus! We found beers that we liked at each and every stop. We brought friends with us but also made new ones. Next time we would bring snacks for the bus.
