Craft Breweries & Cocktails Bus Tour
Oct. 7, 2017 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Downtown Milwaukee

Join us as we discover the craft breweries & distilled spirits before they become famous! This isn’t a brewery tour where you learn about the brewing process – we will be going to FIVE locations and meeting with the masterminds behind these locations and learn more about their craft philosophies while sampling their products. Most of the locations we visit do not distribute their beer or spirits, but you will have the opportunity to buy directly from them if you would like to take home a souvenir or two. Growlers will be available for purchase throughout the tour, or you may bring your own growlers so that you may fill them. The Craft Breweries & Cocktails tour is a 4-hour bus tour. We’ll visit 5 locations on the tour, each offering either a flight of 3, 4 oz beers, or a pint or cocktail of choice. Round-trip transportation and guided fun is included, along with the drinks as noted above. Please note, food is not provided on this tour. This is not a drunken pub crawl, this is an entertaining, educational opportunity to meet the makers of craft beers and distilled spirits in Milwaukee, with responsible drinking along the way. This tour is especially designed for those interested in discovering craft breweries. Please note that we also offer a discounted designated driver pricing.
