The Bend Brew Bus is hands down the best way to truly experience the local beer culture of Bend. If you have not had the chance to do a brew bus...I don't know what you are waiting for. Wanderlust has done it once again with help of their friendly knowledgeable staff. They mix great craft beer with appetizers and drive you around to experience it all. With the many breweries in Bend, its hard to try to sample them all. This allows you to have a close up and personal experience with the breweries. Private tours of the breweries, one on one with brewers and some of the best beer in the NW. This tour is worth it in every way!

A group of 6 of us wanted to do a brew tour and had 2 breweries on our must visit list, Crux and Good Life. Prior to booking the trip 2 people from our group called and relayed that we would only do the tour if those were 2 of the stops, otherwise we would do our own tour. We were told they were popular spots but if we booked that day it shouldn't be a problem to get in. Once we were in the van we were told they were unable to get us in to either spot, but that we would still have a great tour. The first stop, Worthy Brewing, went well and we got both samples and a tour. Riverbend was the next stop. Somehow they were unaware we were coming and weren't prepared for our group. The person who gave the "tour" of the brewery basically just unlocked the door and let us wander around, adding no knowledge for the group. The next stop was Old Mill Brew Werks, where the waitress seemed angry to have to serve our group, although on the plus side it was a beautiful day and the patio seating was nice. Finally we ended the tour at Boneyard, which had great beer but they again didn't have anyone to do a tour of the facility, so a few of us poked around on our own. All in all we were disappointed in the tour itself and the fact that they failed to deliver what they said they could and didn't have the courtesy to at least call and let us know ahead of time so we could make an informed decision. Bottom line, if there are breweries that you want to visit, just do it yourself and use the money you save for more beer.

What a great tour! Danny was super. He knew all about the breweries we visited and gave great advice about others not on the tour. He was very knowledgable about all thing "Bend". What a great guy! The Bend Brew Bus Tour is lucky to have such an ambassador like Danny. We would recommend this tour for everyone. - no matter what their age.

Last month we celebrated my husband's 40th birthday with a mess of friends. His request? The Bend Brew Bus tour. It. Was. Awesome. We can't recommend it enough. All 10 of us were picked up in Sunriver and taken to 4 breweries in Bend for tours and tastings. It was great because it introduced us to places we hadn't heard of in our prior trips up there. Our driver, Danny, was super knowledgeable not only about the places we stopped, but also other places to check out and the whole area in general. If you can, request Danny. He's amazing and tons of fun. Trust me. You will want to book this tour. It's worth every penny and then some.
