Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a cost difference between the different tours?
All tours are the same price, so go where you want! If you know which stops you prefer, select the Custom Tour and create your own perfect day.
Can we choose which breweries we want to visit?
Absolutely. We offer a Paso-area and SLO-area Tour based on our most popular routes but if you know exactly where you want to go, then choose our Custom Tour and we'll be happy to take you there! We're here to help you plan so let us know if you have any questions or would like suggestions on creating an itinerary.
What's included in a tour?
We provide a dedicated driver/beer guide, our beautiful limo-bus, bottled water, individually-wrapped snacks (pretzels, chips, etc.) and keep our prices low so you can drink at your discretion. Tastings are not included on the tour.
Do you go to wineries?
We've had a great response mixing-and-matching winery and brewery visits for lovers of the finer things in life, and since our limo-bus is so accommodating, we've even done our fair share of strictly wine tours (visit our Wine page for more details on Wine tours). If you would like to create a combination tour, choose the Custom Beer Tour option and specify that you are interested in wineries as well.
Can we drink on the bus?
You are allowed to drink alcoholic beverages that you purchased at the brewery, winery, or cidery but we do not allow outside alcohol to be consumed on the bus! We supply the coolers, ice, cups, bottle openers and wine openers for you. Liquor is not permitted, non-alcoholic drinks are encouraged.
How many people can fit on your bus?
Our Large buses accommodate 15 passengers and our new XL Bus can hold up to 20. Please note that we have bench seating, so that could be a perfect amount, or a tight fit, depending on your group!
Can we go for longer than four hours?
Custom tours are as fun for us as they are for you, and as long as the schedule allows it, we're happy to extend your tour to visit a few more breweries, take time for a dining break, or get to those out-of-the-way spots! Only $124 for each additional hour ($164 for XL Bus).
Can we get a guided tour of the breweries we visit?
Brewery tours are available by request, and subject to the brewery's availability. Please email us after you have booked your beer tour and at least two weeks in advance of your tour date and we will arrange it for you!
Where do you pick up from?
We offer free local pick up and drop-off anywhere within 20 miles of our headquarters near downtown SLO! For addresses further away we charge a small one time fee to help cover additional fuel and labor costs: 20-30 miles is only $25, 30-40 miles is $50, etc.
Are children or minors allowed?
We are happy to cater to all ages and most tasting rooms allow minors on their premises. Let us help you put together a kid-friendly itinerary for your whole group. Persons under the age of 21 are not allowed on Walking Tours. Note: We do not have belts to accommodate car seats. State Laws regarding underage drinking still apply.
Are we allowed to get super wasted and be rude?
No, please don't do that.
