We loved our Philadelphia City Brew Tour with Chuck. The beer was fabulous and Chuck was a great guide. Added bonus, the German food was to die for. So yummy.

I booked this tour for my husbands birthday. A group of 10 ventured out on this tour (along with a bachelor party in the mix) and had a great time. Anthony was our guide and not only was he very knowledgeable but he was also very friendly and kept us in line as the day went on. We went to 3 breweries - 2 in NJ (Double Nickle & Eclipse) and ended at Evil Genius in Philly. All 3 were unique experiences with tasty beers. Overall great experience and would do it again!

This tour was so awesome! We wanted to do something unique and fun for my husband’s 40th birthday and this was definitely it! From start of planning with Todd down to the last brewery visited with our tour guide Anthony everything was fun and easy. They were able to accommodate our big group. They made all the plans very clear. Our tour guide Anthony was so knowledgeable. I knew we were going to learn about beer making but I didn’t know we’d learn so much about the history of beer. We had such a wonderful time and I think we’ll be booking another one in the future.
