When we started Cruisin’ For A Brewsin’ in 2006 it was to support the small entrepreneurs who selected craft alcohol as their passion and business. We still have many opportunities to support these key partners as they try to rebuild their businesses and remain in operation.
As fellow human beings who also want to stay healthy, we fully understand the anxiety and concerns that our guests have in taking our traditional tours. This page is to explain how in what ways we are addressing trip flexibility along with health and safety protocols. This is to keep our guests, our staff, and tour partners healthy.
Please take a few minutes to read through and fully understand the responsibilities that we each have in order to work together and operate safely.
This page will be updated and dated as necessary.
Many Brews Cruise tour operations have opened up limited availability on select tours that utilize buses. Any visits to breweries, wineries, and distilleries would be based on the current protocols that often restrict on-premise activities to outside patios and spaces at each of these partners.
In addition, your safety is our biggest concern and we want to make sure you can enjoy the wonderful craft alcohol products of our area in a healthy and safe way.

These times will make it extremely difficult for independent businesses to succeed. We highly encourage all of our fans and supporters to continue to support their local businesses of all types. If you intentionally purchase items from a local company you are clearly helping to keep the spending in your community. This has never been more important.
Stay safe, take care of each other, and continue to Drink Local.
