Birthday parties, Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties, Corporate Outings & Sporting Groups...
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER PRIVATE TOURS?
Private group tours with Tampa Bay Brews Cruise are a perfect event for:
• Birthday Celebrations
• Family & Friends Visiting Tampa Bay
• Bachelor & Bachelorette Wedding Parties
• Wedding Anniversaries
• Family Reunions
• Home Brewing Clubs
In order to insure that the event you book is private (no outside bookings) then you must guarantee 10 attendees. I will take payment of 4 bookings to create the event and send you a link so the others can book themselves. Your event will become private at that time. But if 14 days prior to your event, at least 10 have not booked, then it will be opened to others. Once the 10 people have booked, then the date will be made private. Your group can be up to 14 people. Others can book online or at the time of the tour. The sooner you have the 10 bookings, the greater chance of having your event private. If you reach the 10 person then there will be no refunds on no shows or anyone wishing a refund that will drop your group below the 10 person limit. Of course you can pay for all 10 at once to secure your date if you wish.
All logistical details will be agreed upon ahead of time by the private group organizers and Tampa Bay Brews Cruise.
A 10% cancellation fee on all bookings. No refunds for any no shows.

We also want to ensure that our guests who arrived on time are not left waiting. We specialize in small personalized brewery educational experiences and in order to ensure that every guest has a wonderful experience, we have put the following policies and procedures in place.
