Owner description: Get out into one of Denver's 300 days of sunshine and head to the Historical Lower Downtown (LoDo) District of Denver.

Tours last between 2-3 hours so prepare to hang out with a local beer aficionado and see if you have what it takes to stand up to our beer. During the 4 stops on our tour you will try 10 different beers, go behind the scenes to learn brewing process, visit a brewpub that began a nationwide franchise, drink in the brewery founded by the governor, and hang out in the best craft beer bar in Denver. Our tour guides drink with the best so ask them any questions you may have. All challenges accepted! Book now to secure your spot; if the tour is full please call our contact phone number to see if we can add you in. Don't miss out on Denver's gateway to craft beer!

“excellent! needs nuts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Our Detroit export tour guide was a lot of fun! He had an excellent knowledge of kraft beers. He gave us interesting facts about beer and Down town Denver history. When you go ask about "market street" and its name history. A good way to improve this tour would be to include beer snacks. It was a lot of large samples with nothing to soak it in.

“Beer and Downtown Denver - What's not to like!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Was in Denver over Memorial Day weekend and decided to take this tour. Our tour guide was Paul (if I remember correctly), and kept us entertained throughout the tour with stories about Denver and the breweries. Although I would have liked to seen more of the brewing process, I do think you get your money's worth in the 10 tastings, plus the 'extras' and free pint. Although a little disappointed that they were out of the tour glasses, we did receive an apology and refund for that additional cost.

A must do for any beer aficionado!

“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Had a good experience on the tour. Our tour guide was Ethan, who was funny and personable and knew a lot about the beer. Didn't know much about Denver though, or at least didn't say much about it. Could have used some more history/facts/trivia about the neighborhood. Overall it was a lot of fun though!

“It's about the beer - not the tour guide”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

The tour guide was personable, but really didn't provide any information about beers, brewing, etc. He was there only to walk you between the 4 stops we made. Even at the stops, he had to wait to get us the beer for tasting --- it wasn't like it was planned ahead of time .... more like someone who just walked into a bar and asked the bartender for a few pitchers of 3 different beers and waited until he could get them.

The good news is that you did get to taste about a dozen different brews and you really could have as much as you wanted of each.

Overall, the beer was worth the money but the tour was a farce.
