Granite State Growler Tours, the first craft brewery tour bus in New Hampshire and a Best of NH 2013 winner chosen by NH magazine, is roaming for foam! Hop on our bus, affectionately named 'Greta the Growler Getta', and visit the best craft breweries on the NH seacoast. Your four-hour adventure includes exclusive personal tours given by the brewers themselves so you can talk to them one on one. Tastings are included in the ticket price. If you like what you tried, grab a growler and we'll keep it iced down for you. As we roam from tap to tap, our knowledgeable guide will entertain and intrigue you with unique facts and little-known stories about the rich and foamy history of brewing in NH. With great hops at every stop, meet us for beer every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Are you looking for a private or group tour a custom itinerary for your special event? We can visit over 27 different breweries and distilleries.

Mark did a great job telling stories. Dom did a great job driving. We went to three breweries and walked in like rockstars. Delicious pretzels were provided along with water on the Bus.

Fantastic tour guides. Funny and entertaining. The time spent driving between the breweries was as much fun as drinking beer at our destinations. Loved learning bits of beer and local history!
