Very knowledgeable host, and it was so great getting to know others from all over on the tour. Great time. A great taste of Vancouver's craft beer! As a somewhat lightweight, I was pretty wasted by the end of it. Plan accordingly.

This is a must do for visitors, the host was in good form with our group and was very knowledgeable on all aspects and magic of craft brewing. The 3 breweries we went to, Bomber, Steamworks, and the AWESOME [ STORM!! ] I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and especially for the beer Aficionado, fantastic time guaranteed to be had by all. Cheers Ryan from the Cowley gang.

We did the tour for a corporate event and it was a smash hit! Definitely would recommend to everyone. The locations we visited had something for all tastes and really showed how the craft beer scene in Vancouver stands out. Our guide Ryan was very knowledgeable and made sure all our needs were met. I feel this is the best way to try new beers since you can sit back and relax while everything is taken care of for you. You also get to try something you can't even get in stores which makes it a unique experience. The group photo was a great idea, and it is already on our wall at work!

I planned a surprise birthday tour for my boyfriend and 11 of our closest friends. Everything from my initial contact with Ryan to the drop off (at our requested location) was fantastic! I can't express enough how professional, prompt, fun and informative our tour organizer and guide Ryan was. Our entire party had such a great time and I am still getting positive messages and feedback from our friends. I initially had hoped to plan my own brewery tour but this was definitely the way to go! Ryan had tables reserved for us, a full tour through the brewery, not to mention a great van to get us safely from one stop to the next. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a fun day out and about in Vancouver!! Especially beer lovers like myself!! Cheers!

Just took this Vancouver brewery tour a couple days ago with friends from the US
I live in the US too but am a regular Vancouver visitor
My wife planned a surprise birthday tour for my friends and I who will all celebrate a landmark birthday this year.
Met Rachel and Ryan outside a downtown restaurant and proceeded promptly in their van to the first of three artisanal breweries. Rachel gave us a very informative run down on the exploding brewery scene in Vancouver followed by a great session on the art of beer brewing at the first stop
We toured 3 breweries in all -- each one different from each other for many reasons.
Suffice it to say we immensely enjoyed our tour and I for one will return again next vist to Vancouver to tour different breweries.
Really appreciate the enthusiasm showed by Rachel and Ryan ( please keep that intact!! ) and a list of pubs in the area that serve tap microbrews.
I can easily recommend this tour for its high quality, reasonable cost and much appreciated little gifts given to each of us ( a nice beer glass and a coupon for a beer at Rogue restaurant post tour )
