Austin Brew Tour FAQ

What is the cancellation, rescheduling, refund policy?

All ticket sales are final. Tours cannot be exchanged, rescheduled, or refunded.

Guests that purchase our optional ticket insurance during checkout can cancel or reschedule their tour with at least 24 hours notice and can be rescheduled or reimbursed for the full tour ticket price (minus the booking fee and insurance fee). Please contact us for assistance.

Could my tour be canceled?

Not likely, but it is possible. In the event of severe weather or a lack of tour-goers, the tour may be canceled.

In the event of inclement weather, the decision to cancel will be made by Brew Tours Staff at least 12 hours before the start of the tour. If roads are fair and our brewery partners are open, we make every effort to run our tours as scheduled.  Should you wish to reschedule due to the inability to travel during the inclement weather, please contact us to discuss your options; a fee may apply if your tour was still scheduled to operate.

Where do your tours pick up?

Fairmont Austin

Our pick-up spot is in front of The Fairmont Austin.

The van will depart right at the time listed, so we recommend arriving 15 minutes early to allow for time to check-in! Bear in mind we do not have a storefront, but our pickup location is on Red River Street, in front of the Fairmont Austin.

Fairmont Austin

101 Red River Street, Austin Texas 78701

Why do I have to wear closed-toed shoes?

All guests must wear closed-toe shoes to participate in the tour.

This is a safety precaution that the breweries themselves are required to enforce, therefore, no exceptions can be made. If you are taking a tour during the summer months, please plan accordingly.

Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?

Yes, we can accommodate most dietary restrictions.

Please inform us regarding the nature of your restrictions when booking your tour!

A note on gluten: Typically, beer is not gluten-free. Some of our tour stops do from time to time offer gluten-free options, however, we cannot guarantee their availability. Gluten-free guests should consider our non-drinker ticket, so they can purchase cider or gluten-free beer when available.

Am I able to choose all of the beers on my tour?

No need to worry about choosing your beers at each stop.

You’ll receive a handpicked selection of local craft beer curated by our beer expert guides.

What is your tour minimum?

In order for us to run a tour, we need a minimum of 4 participants.

What is your tour maximum?

Our public tours can accommodate 14 guests, and for groups of 8 or more we recommend private tours, that can accommodate up to 500 guests.

What is the difference between the public and private tour?

We offer 2 different public tours which you can read more about here. Because private tours are personalized, there is a sliding scale of differences between them vs. public tours. Generally, we suggest private tours for corporate events, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and other groups of over 10 guests. You can read more about our private tours here.
