My friend and I took the Saturday tour with Ryan and Stephanie and it was great!
They were very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, fun and mindful of our safety.
This is a great 3hr tour which covers enough ground and doesn't take up your entire day. A good glimpse into what happens behind the scenes at the small privately-owned breweries. Two of them were quite new and it was good to hear the stories from the owners as to how they came to be. It's a worthwhile introduction to the basics of brewing and this growing industry in the city.

What a great way to spend a Saturday. My friends and I started our tour at 12 noon and ended at 3 pm. Ryan, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly! The tour consisted of 3 breweries and about 3-4 tastings per brewery...more than enough to get everyone a little buzzed. I highly recommend this tour to any craft beer aficionados or anyone who enjoys a nice drink and a great time on a weekend!

Ryan and Steph lead a great day of tours through 3 of Vancouver's wonderful breweries. Ryan was pleasant and accommodating and the Brewers were eager to talk shop and educate the group on all aspects of the brewing process. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is even mildly interested in local craft beer.

We took the tour as part of a friends bachelor party and both Ryan & Steph were excellent hosts. We got to sample some amazing beers and they were very knowledgeable about Vancouver beer history and the Craft beer industry. We went to 3 separate breweries: Deep Cove Brewery, Parallel 49 & Steamworks. Ryan got us into each brewery and we basically had VIP access to the facilities. They provided bottled water and snacks in the vain and played great music.

Being strictly a wine lover, I was eager to learn more about craft beers. Hey, who are we kidding? I'm just trying to be hip and relate to something that my adult kids enjoy. The Vancouver Brewery Tour was great - very informational and professional. Although Stephanie and Ryan are passionate and uber-knowledgeable about craft beers, they patiently explained the different processes to me, someone who is never sure what the difference is between a sleeve, a glass and a pint! The 3 breweries were very unique and each visit had its own flavour. Sampling portions were very generous. The van was roomy and it was fun to meet new people and share beer stories. The fact that the tour started and ended at the Waterfront Skytrain station is brilliant, as returning home was a pleasant breeze.
