Very highly recommended! This is a great way to spend a couple hours drinking good beer and learning cool things about Manitou Springs. We were one of the first "Frights and Pints" tours - a new version of the original beer tour peppered with cool stories of local ghost and haunting lore. Russ (the owner and retired military veteran) made it a blast! We were hosting family from North Carolina and thought we'd get a chance to introduce them to some interesting history about Manitou Springs. Surprisingly, though we've been to Manitou Springs a dozen times ourselves, we ended up learning a ton as well. History and ghost stories are great if you like that stuff - but when you throw in 8-9 beer tastings at three different stops it makes for an awesome time! The beer is great - very good selection of Colorado craft beers and we were able to choose some along the way. One of the stops is the historic Cliff House, which was really cool to see. Russ is a good story teller and takes the time to stop between stops to point out cool facts about the town. The folks at each of the stops seemed to really like him and it felt like we were being introduced to the local culture by a respected member of the community. They offer a military discount on tickets too. You won't regret doing this tour.

We had an excellent private beer tour. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting history of the area. Since he noted a lot of great food and shopping places, I'd recommend doing the tour on one of the first nights you're visiting the area. There was a good diversity of beer samples that were all worth trying.

The Springs Craft Beer tour was fantastic!! About 2 hours total, and worth every minute! It was a Manitou Springs walking tour with stops at a few of the local establishments, and multiple beer tastings. Our tour guide, Russ, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Manitou Springs, and provided us with short stories and fun facts about the town that kept things interesting. Our path crossed through a penny arcade, and there were a couple of other stops along the way where we were given some freebies from local vendors! Truly, just a fun walk through town! The servers at the beer spots were great and gave us a lot of information about the various beers they were serving. Great tour and great way to spend time in the Springs!! The beer alone was worth the cost of the tour!! I highly recommend it!!
