Shane was awesome!! He has some serious connections with the breweries and you get plenty of beer for the money you pay! Also it’s worth taking time to get to know Shane because he’s hilarious! 10/10 would go again.

Great Brewery Tour!
Oct 2020
I booked a Team Bonding Brewery Tour with Shane and it was an absolute success! Shane was incredibly knowledgeable and we could tell he had a great relationship with the breweries he took us to. There was one stop where one of my team mates spilled a brand new beer and the server was out with a napkin and new beer before we even had a chance to stand up and ask! Great service, I highly recommend booking a tour with Shane!

Amazing Brew Tour
This was an amazing tour. We are locals and had never been to any of the breweries. Shane was absolutely amazing and provided us with a lot of knowledge. All the brewery staff showed a lot of respect to Shane and that made our tour even better. Definitely a must choose.

Best tour ! The people we met were so friendly. Our tour guide Alex was the best . She was very knowledgeable and very welcoming.
She is very passionate about beer . She made the tour very enjoyable. All breweries were great . We got to meet the owner of Independence and the owner of Nomadic. Their stories are very motivating .
I would do this tour again with Alex . She was the highlight of the tour. Alex thank you for your hospitality !

In our group lived in Austin so it was good to get some info about the city and neighborhoods. The 3 breweries we stopped at were all unique from each other in size, atmosphere, and beers. At each stop you choose two beers to try which is great. We've been on other tours where you do not pick. We were given about an hour at each stop which was ample time. I would highly recommend this tour company!

Took a group of 14 on this tour for my birthday & had an absolute blast! The customer service from when I first booked through the entire tour was top notch. They made it so easy to have a fun day planned. Our tour guide, James, was the best! Great driver, super cool guy, and made sure we had the best experience possible at each brewery. He made the day so fun, stress-free, and kept us all on track.

We stopped at a mix of well known & off the beaten path breweries. If you’re visiting from out of town, this is one of the best tours to see the heart of Austin craft brewing. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Fun way to explore Austin
Nov 2019
we had a great tour and experienced 3 breweries we would have never found on our own. Shane was a great host and gave us suggestions on beers to try and food trucks to eat during our visit. Well worth it to have Shane drive you around to drink and eat for 3-4 hours

Great Afternoon
Oct 2019
We really enjoyed our tour! The beer was good and we got to see a part of town that we would not have seen on our own. Orlando was our guide and it was like spending the afternoon with an old friend rather than being on a tour. He made the afternoon special.
