Some brewery tours do not include ride accommodations and it will be very inconvenient and time-consuming to look for one during the tour. If there is a ride accommodation and you are bringing your own vehicle, know if there is a parking space where you can leave your vehicle during the tour.

There are also brewery tours that do not provide a meal or even a snack during the tour, so you may need to prepare for this.

You may also need to know how many breweries are included in the tour package. This will help you prepare and plan your schedule and your budget, especially if you are planning to take home a few bottles or kegs.

As you visit each brewery, you will learn how they differ from each other, and how their beers make them distinct from the others. You will also get to taste different kinds of beer and know each brewery’s bestseller and award-winning beers.

#3 Is There a Need for a Reservation for a Group Tour?

Is there a limit to the number of guests that can be accommodated?

For group accommodations, it is better to book a tour to ensure that everyone gets a seat in the ride. Most brewery tours can accommodate company events, just inform the organizers of the number of attendees.

#4 Can We Drink Beer Along the Ride?

These 2 questions are often asked, especially for tours that lasts for more than half a day. There are brewery tour packages that offer light snacks during the tour which includes a bottle of water.

Drinking beer, however, during the ride is not allowed in most brewery tours. This is to ensure your safety for the entire trip. You may enjoy beer-sampling and beer-tasting at the breweries and taprooms.

For hungry tummies, you may have a hearty meal in some breweries that include food in their menus.
