Perfect Gift!

If you're looking for a gift for a beer lover, look no further. City Brew Tours did all the planning and we just showed up. They chose 3 local breweries that each had a unique ambiance as well as a solid selection of brews from sours to IPAs to stouts. Our guide, Brian, was extremely knowledgeable about the brew scene in DC.

Amazing Craft Beer!

What a great way to spend the day sampling some of what DC has to offer in the craft beer market. Highly recommend City Brew Tours not only to get you around the city, but also to pick some of the best destinations to sample beer. Our tour guide Clayton was awesome as he has an extensive knowledge of beer and the DC area.

Highly Recommend!

A few weeks ago, my wife and some friends had the chance to enjoy the city brew tour with our guide Braxton. We had a great time trying out breweries new to us. Braxton was a terrific host and informative guide. We would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a night out on the town or visiting from out of town.

FAQs

What is the cancellation, rescheduling, refund policy?

We operate rain, shine, and snow as long as the roads are safe and we have met our minimum to run the tour.

Changes and cancellations are free up to 72 hours before the tour. Ticket insurance allows you to make changes or cancel up to 3 hours before the tour, and we will reschedule or reimburse you for your full tour ticket price (minus the booking fee and insurance fee). Insurance can only be purchased when making your initial reservation, and cannot be added after the fact.

Could my tour be cancelled?

Not likely, but it is possible. In the event of severe weather or the tour does not meet the minimum number of guests required to operate it within 72 hours, 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.  If you are unable to travel due to inclement weather, please give us a call at 412-419-2337 to discuss your options. We will not be able to issue full refunds without the purchase of ticket insurance, but we may be able to find you another tour option in the future.

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?
