We had a great time on a private craft beer and food tour. The destinations were all inviting and the beer choices delicious. Our tour guide was Charles who could not have been nicer and more accommodating. It was a fun evening

The weekday tours are the best. It was just me and a couple. The tour guide, Charles, was excellent. I would have guessed he’s been doing this for years but he is relatively new. He had a great way of explaining the whole beer making process that is very understandable. We visited 4 places over 3 hours. All were different and interesting. My only criticism is that one stop was not a brewery but a tappery, although they had a great selection of beers and the food was excellent. You get 3-4 samples at each stop and a nice feed of appetizers at one stop. Pick up is in front of the National Portrait Gallery.

"Highly recommend for a unique night out! "

Great brewery tour with the funny and knowledgeable Steve. The beers were delicious (this coming from a wine drinker!) and you didn’t feel like there was too much beer or they were rushing you- no hangover the next day! I loved hearing the human stories behind the breweries! Highly recommend if you are looking for something different or for a special occasion. I would say they could provide more food options of higher quality and put this earlier in the program - more like 7 pm than 8 pm - but this is my only suggestion.
