About Us

polaroidJoin us for a guided tour through the Flathead Valley’s award-winning craft beer scene! We are passionate about craft beer, but we are also passionate about showcasing the people behind the beer and breweries that the Valley has to offer. We’ve partnered with all the local breweries in Whitefish, Kalispell, Columbia Falls, and the Flathead Lake area to provide you an experience you won’t get anywhere else! You came for the scenery, but you’ll never forget your first Montana microbrew. Now offering guided winery tours, too!

Jody and Britteny started off as skiing, traveling, and beer-drinking buddies before they had the crazy idea of starting their own craft brew tour company. After many long discussions (over beers of course), they partnered with Brews Cruise, Inc. who have successfully operated in many locations across the country. Along with Jody’s trusty dog, Hank, the three of them embarked on a journey to showcase the Flathead Valley’s amazing craft beer scene with locals and tourists alike! Read our FAQ and Policies here.

Our Group Had A Great Time August 2023

I was part of a buddy golf trip and we scheduled the tour of the microbreweries on our non-golf day. We had been white water rafting earlier in the day and the tour was a great way to finish the day. Our guide was Britteny and she was very knowledgeable, friendly and an overall great host. Our group had a great time and we highly recommend their company!

It is a great tour! June 2022

Big Sky Brews Cruise is the best way to experience the local beer scene in the Whitefish area. We were staying in Columbia Falls and made the short drive to Whitefish to meet Brittney. She took us to visit breweries in Kalispell, which we would have never visited due to time. Brittney was very knowledgeable about the beer making process and the local beer scene. It is a great tour! One you will not want to miss!

Non-Beer Drinker Loved Tour! May 2022

Jody's tour was amazing. Her knowledge of the unique breweries' attributes enhanced each location's visit. Her challenge - and she accepted it - was to find something for me to enjoy at each of the three locations. Ha! Who knew brewers can make alcoholic kombucha and daiquiris!?! Enjoy! Sit back and let Jody do the driving while you enjoy Kalispell's craft breweries!

Definitely a great brews cruise to take part in! 10/10 March 2022

My husband and I had such a great time on the brews cruise with Jodie! We went to 3 awesome breweries and each one had a few beers we loved. Jodie shared great knowledge of each brewery with us, she had snacks and waters available to us on the van and ensured we were having the best time! The back of the brew house tours were so awesome too.

Fun Times! January 2022

What a fun evening. We signed up for the brewery tour and it was really fun. Our driver and hostess for the evening was knowledgeable, fun, and very nice. We hung out with some new people while tasting our way through the town. If you are looking for something to do and everyone in your group is over 21 we recommend signing up for a brew tour. Fun times.

We LOVED the Brews Cruise December 2021

Jody was incredible!!! She was so friendly and easy to talk to. She was very knowledgeable and it’s easy to tell she truly enjoys what she does. My biggest concern beforehand was hanging out with other couples we didn’t know for 4 hours. We ended up having great conversations and plan to stay in touch. Every brewery we went to had a great vibe and as a new beer drinker…I loved every beer I tried. I highly recommend this tour!
