You may choose one of their public tours, or plan your own. We opted to plan our own, and filled the bus with beer drinkers (and homebrewers) of every different level and experience. Whether you’re a seasoned beer geek, or a novice, this guided tour will have plenty of information for you. Not only will you see the taprooms and behind the bars, but will get an up close look at the brewing, canning, and bottling facilities of each brewery visited.
When you choose your breweries, keep in mind that drive time to and from your pick/drop location, and time between breweries is part of your tour! Plan accordingly, and choose breweries that maximize your time drinking beer, and learning!
Our tour guide, Megan, picked us up at our home, which is approximately 10 miles south of downtown, and we were able to visit (comfortably) Nine Giant, Rhinegeist, and The Woodburn. We could tell, immediately, that Megan was knowledgeable and had a good relationship with each brewery as we entered. Not only did she fulfill our beer requests, but helped us learn about the brewing process, history of the buildings we were in, and styles of the beers we were trying. We even had the pleasure of having co-owners of two of the breweries we visited leading part of our tour!
While you’re not sipping delicious brews, and learning about Cincinnati’s rich brewing past, present and future, you’ll get to have a great time on the bus. Bring along for the ride beer, wine, and cider for enjoying on the bus, just keep it there. No outside beer is permitted in any of the breweries, and no hard liquor allowed!
Everything is included in the price of admission, except gratuity for your driver. Remember to tip well, and often! Book a tour today, and find out why Craft Connection Brewery Tours is successfully helping grow Cincinnati’s craft beer culture and awareness! Drink local! Cheers!
