Burlington Brew Tour FAQs

What should I wear?

We do not have a dress code, but please make sure you wear closed toe shoes. No sandals! This is for safety while on the brewery tours.

Why wasn’t I able to pay when making a booking?

If we did not ask for payment during the booking process, we have not reached our minimum tour participants. Once the tour minimum is met, the system will automatically accept your booking request and you will then have 48 hours to pay the amount due. If this payment is not received within 48 hours, the system will automatically cancel your tour.

What if I do not drink?

We offer non-drinker tickets on all our tours for $65 per person. These tickets are only available for persons over 21.

Do you pick us up?

We provide pick up at three specific locations in Burlington for our Classic and Pub Crawl Tours. Our guides will reach out before the pick up to tell you the time to be at the pick up, but expect anywhere from 10 – 40 minutes before the tour start.

  1. 115 Cherry St in Burlington
  2. 1068 Williston Rd in South Burlington
  3. 1720 Shelburne Rd in South Burlington

If you are not staying near any of these locations we recommend choosing 115 Cherry St for pick up, as it has many things to do before or after the tour!

What’s included in the price?

Tours are ALL INCLUSIVE! The tour price includes up to 15+ different beers (ranging from 3-12 ounces), a beer food pairing meal, brewery entrance fees, gratuity for brewery staff and round trip transportation.

Tip for the guide is not included for groups of less than 4, we recommend $10 pp.

What breweries do you visit?

We visit so many! We will not have the itinerary solidified until two days before the tour is scheduled. Feel free to call us if you are curious!

Should I eat before the tour?

We recommend having a good breakfast/lunch so you’re not starting on an empty stomach.

Do you need a certain number of people for the tour to run?

Yes. All our tours require a 4 person minimum to run. This does not mean that you need 4 people in your group, but that we need 4 people overall to sign up for the tour slot. It does not hurt to invite friends though!

Could my tour get cancelled?

Not likely, but it’s possible. In the event of severe weather or a lack of tour-goers, the tour may be canceled. If there are less than four (4) seats booked for a tour, that tour may be subject to cancellation (so bring all of your friends and family)!

If there are less than four (4) seats booked for a tour, we will notify you 72 hours prior to your tour and try to reschedule you to an alternate date/time.

Is there a waitlist?

There is a wait list you can sign up online if you have more people than seats available. If you do, the system will notify you if the required space opens up and you will have 3 hours to respond.

We also may contact you with other options if they are possible!

What is the Refund policy for City Brew Tours?

Can I reschedule my tour date?

Any date changes that are made less than 2 weeks before your tour will be subject to a $25pp rescheduling fee. No date changes can be made less than 72 hours before a tour.

Can you drink on the bus?

No, drinking is reserved only for the breweries.
