City Brew Tours offers unforgettable all-inclusive tours and beer-focused experiences in some of the best beer cities throughout North America. With over a decade of experience, City Brew Tours has created the ultimate craft beer experience that blends history, beer knowledge, transportation, and great food with unrivaled access to an area’s top breweries and their beer.
Our mission is to be the leading curator of craft beer experiences for visitors, locals, and the community as both an ambassador and an advocate for the brewing industry.
Like any good pint of beer, our company started with an idea. Founded in Burlington, Vermont in 2008 by diehard beer-lover Chad Brodsky, City Brew Tours is more than your average “beer party bus.” We take guests on thirst-quenching adventures through North America’s most exciting craft beer scenes with as much a focus on education as entertainment. After returning from studying in Vienna, Chad enrolled in a “Beer Making 101” class. Upon realizing beer-brewing wasn’t his forte, Chad bought an old church van to start spreading the craft beer gospel. With Burlington’s label as the fourth best beer city on Earth, Chad’s timing was perfect in launching Burlington Brew Tours, which quickly rose to stardom for unique beer-geek-led tours. After expanding to more cities, Burlington Brew Tours evolved into City Brew Tours, with an ever-growing list of locations.
Now, following years of success, Chad has teamed up with Dustin and Scottie Hughes to bring City Brew Tours to Birmingham and deliver the same educational (and delicious) craft beer excursions the nation has adored for more than a decade to the Iron City.
Dustin found his love of craft beer when he had his first sip of a local West Coast Style India Pale Ale, bringing his wife, Scottie along for the voyage. On the weekends you can catch them enjoying the vast variety of brewery options Birmingham has to offer. Dustin and Scottie sought out the great state of Massachusetts and took a City Brew Tour in Boston. They were blown away by how incredible the experience was and knew Birmingham HAD to have their own City Brew Tours. After 13 years in sales, Dustin has left the corporate world to share the knowledge he has gained on craft beer, its history and Birmingham’s tale of time. Dustin’s mission is to give people of Birmingham the quality adventure he and Scottie fell in love with in Boston.
