Q. What can we expect on your tours?
A. We want you to have a great time and hopefully learn something about Craft Beer while we explore the best Breweries and Beer SoCal has to offer.
DON'T contact us for bachelor parties or if looking for a "party bus", we DON'T do those, not what were about
We also aren't running a contest to see who can drink the most Beer, if that's what you're looking then our tour isn't for you.
Q. Are there any restrictions to taking a tour?
A. You must be 21 with VALID I.D. to take any tour and sign waiver.
Q. Can we bring Beer and a cooler on the bus?
A. A wise man once said "Beer is about Quality, Not Quantity".
Most of the Beer at today's breweries is much higher in alcohol content than many people are used to drinking so please take that into consideration.
Great Fresh Beer at the Breweries should be the priority, not canned or bottled beer that you can drink anytime. We ask that you pace yourselves and enjoy the whole tour. You can bring a small cooler with a little beer. NO HARD LIQUOR ALLOWED, this is a beer tour.
Q. What does all Beer tasters mean? What is a flight or pint* for each person?
A. A flight of Beers/all Beer tasters is usually 4 4oz tasters of each breweries core beers for each person. If you prefer a glass of a Beer instead of a flight you can have that. You get approx $25 worth of beer for each person for the tour.
We go to many different Breweries, each has their own policies/procedures for flights. Sometimes they are too busy to pour individual flights for groups so we offer a pint* instead. Pint*, the higher the ABV may result in a smaller pour.

Q. Is Beer good for you?
A. You be the judge, below is copied from a recent article:
Craft Beer: Stronger than commercial cousins, craft Beers tend to be stronger in alcohol content and have more body and strength. They also pack a health punch full of vitamins and minerals. Craft Beer can contain up to 30% of your daily recommended fiber intake and can help lower your cholesterol.
IPA:Make yours a pint of IPA and you're onto a winner. IPA is one of the healthiest beers around because of what's in the hops. The wonder ingredient is the compound xanthohumol which prevents cataracts and keeps the bad cholesterol (HDL) from oxidizing and forming in your arteries, thus helping to prevent heart disease.
Dark Beer: If your dear old mother swore by a pint of stout, it seems she was on to a good thing. Dark beers contain 2 to 3 times the amount of flavonoids from the roasted barley which can help combat cardiovascular disease and even cancer.
See you soon!
