“It's Beerthirty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Even if you are not a beer lover, this is a fun way to see Vancouver and its different areas and taste some interesting beers. The tour group cares very much about the microbreweries that have grown there, knowing a lot about beer, how different beers are made, and how each the brewing process and each brewery we visited. Our tour guide also did a great job in making everyone feel comfortable and helped lead the discussion on the different types of beer offered by each brewery and the different business models of each brewery. At the end of the tour, one group stayed together at the last stop and the rest of us went to the drop off and tasted another beer at a local bar. All in all, a fun time.

“Informative and entertaining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Definetly a must for visitors to the city. Our host Rachael was bright and cheerful and had worked in the beer industry, so she knew her stuff. We visited 3 different breweries and had plenty of very tasty craft beers. We live in the city and as a local, had a great time. A great way to spend an afternoon. Don't worry, there's plenty of beer for everyone.

Cheers,
Ken

“An excellent Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Sent my husband and my daughter's partner on this tour for 3 hrs while we girls shopped and they thoroughly enjoyed it. They have been on several brewery tours before but as newcomers to British Columbia they learned a great deal about the boutique brewing there and local names and beers to try. For the rest of our holiday they knew exactly where to go for good brew pub lunches and what to buy in the liquor stores. An excellent afternoon.

“Ton of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

While you could do some of these brewery tours yourself, I don't feel like it would come close to matching the experience of Vancouver Brewery Tours. Ryan, our host, was very easy to talk to and took great care of us all tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about the breweries and knew the employees at all of them. We had plenty of time at each one to sample the beers and talk with the staff as well as the other tour-goers. It was a lot of fun meeting people from Vancouver and other parts of Canada and the US. We had a great time and honestly I couldn't think of anything that they could improve upon. The breweries chosen were a nice contrast from small to large.
