Brewery tours will:

  • provide behind-the-scenes info (and access when available) to top local breweries and brewpubs
  • teach our customers about the evolution, styles and production of beer
  • provide practical information such as how to select, recommend and pair beer with food
  • highlight local lore and history
  • most importantly, have fun along the way!

Taste Tidewater Tours are so much more than your typical pub crawl. You will be guided through each brewery’s offerings for much more than a 1 minute run-down of the beer list by a server.

Whether for a company team building event, bachelor(ette) party, anniversary, birthday, or just a night out on the town with a group of friends, our beer tours are an ideal way to enjoy beer responsibly with an experienced and knowledgeable guide.

Safe and Responsible

Drinking and driving is never a good idea. Our tour provides a fun and safe approach to touring multiple breweries responsibly.

Tours

Tours can either be “full” or “express.”  The stops will be based on each group’s interests and the availability of the venues.

  • Full tours generally last at least four hours and include three stops.
  • Express tours last  around two hours and include two stops.

Our motorcoach picks you up at the location your group designated (for public tours, we meet at a common area). After check-in, we head out to our first brewery.  On the way, our guide gives a brief overview of beer making, styles, tasting, and pairing.  The tour is also filled with regional history and lore that will impress even the most seasoned locals!
