8 of the Best Brewery Tours in the U.S.
Few beer-drinking experiences are as fun as getting fresh brews straight from the source. So, if you’ve never been to one of the over 9,000 breweries operating in the United States, you’re missing out. Of course, choosing a brewery tour can be a challenge; each brewer has its own unique history, location and, most importantly, selection of beers. Here, we’ve rounded up a few of the best brewery tours in the U.S., all of which allow you to learn a bit more about the beer-making process up close.
8 of the Best Brewery Tours in the United States
1. budweiser | st. louis, missouri.
Say what you will about drinking a Bud, but the Anheuser-Busch Budweiser brewery in St. Louis, Missouri is well worth a visit. At Budweiser , the company doesn’t just offer tours; they offer brewery experiences . You can explore beer and food pairings or get a VIP up-close look at the famed Clydesdales . And those are just two of the options.
Budweiser has been a mainstay in the beer world for about 150 years, so the brewery’s tours offer a lot in the way of beer-making history. Plus, you’ll have the chance to explore a wide range of the company’s brews, from classic Budweiser to the honey-malt flavors or Budweiser Supreme to the smooth Budweiser Chelada with Clamato.
2. Goose Island | Chicago, Illinois
The Goose Island brewery tour isn’t just special because of the souvenir glass and three samples you get along the way. Most enticingly, it’s a chance to get a near-complete look at the entire brewing process. For our money, the bourbon barrel aging room is a standout moment as it showcases the place where a range of delectable brews are aged to perfection.
Not familiar with Goose Island’s offerings? Start with the Lemonade Shandy for a light and bright option. The Lost Palate Hazy IPA is another excellent choice, and features flavors like mango and cinnamon. Needless to say, Goose Island brewery is a must-see spot on any beer lover’s trip to Chicago, Illinois.
3. SweetWater | Atlanta, Georgia
If you want a tour with a ton of samples, look no further than SweetWater in Atlanta, Georgia. Along with a chance to try six fantastic brews, you’ll get a souvenir glass — but that’s not all. Tour-wise, you can choose between a condensed 30-minute tour or a 1.5-hour in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the brewing process.
Sweetwater’s motto is, “We’re not here for a long time; we’re here for a good time,” and you can taste that passion in its brews. For a classic beer, try the 420 Extra Pale Ale, which is similar to an IPA. For something a bit darker, give the Hop Hash Double IPA or the seasonal Happy Ending Imperial Stout a go.
4. Sierra Nevada | Chico, California
The Sierra Nevada brewery in Chico, California is the original of the company’s two locations, and that makes it an excellent option for beer lovers looking to go on tours. You can explore how the various brews are made firsthand, and then end your day at the on-site Brewhouse Bar.
One unique feature of the tour? Learning more about Sierra Nevada’s commitment to sustainability. Plus, you’ll learn more about the company’s quirky founder, Ken Grossman, which is a real treat; he built Sierra Nevada’s first brewhouse pretty much by hand using, primarily, recycled dairy equipment.
When it comes to the tasting part, you can’t go wrong with the Torpedo. But if you’re looking for something a bit different, give Strainge Beast, a hard kombucha, or the Tropical Torpedo beer a whirl.
5. New Belgium | Fort Collins, Colorado
A self-described “human-powered” brewery, New Belgium genuinely appreciates its employees, community and any out-of-town guests who come in for a tour. The company is also environmentally and socially conscious, setting high standards with its brews and values.
When it comes to what to try at this Fort Collins, Colorado-based brewery, you can always fall back on a classic: the Fat Tire. But the Voodoo Ranger IPA line is also worth checking out, especially if you visit in the fall, when the Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin brew is the seasonal treat on tap. If you’re not a big beer drinker, or want to try something a bit different, New Belgium’s Fruit Smash Hard Seltzer is a solid option.
6. Pabst | Milwaukee, Wisconsin
With more than 175 years of history under its blue ribbon, Pabst offers tours that get you up close and personal with a classic American beer. Seriously — the tour is incredibly comprehensive, covering everything from a historic hall and Pabst’s former corporate offices to an old infirmary.
As for the all-important samples, trying a classic Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) is a must. But if you want something fuller-bodied, go with Pabst Blue Ribbon Extra. For a lighter brew, there’s also Pabst Blue Ribbon Easy.
7. Maui Brewing Co. | Kihei, Hawai’i
A trip to Maui Brewing Co . is pretty much guaranteed to delight beer fans. Beer on tap, right from the source, on Hawai’i? It doesn’t get much better. If you visit the brewery, you’ll get a look in at the beer-making process as well as the company’s cellar and packaging line. Not to mention, there are sample brews to taste and complimentary souvenir glasses to take home.
While any brew here is worth trying, a few feel classically Hawai’ian in that they harness the flavors of local fruits. The Pineapple Mana and Coconut Hiwa are musts, for example, but you also can’t go wrong with more classic (and less fruit-forward) beers, like the Bikini Blonde, Double Overhead or Pueo. And for visitors who aren’t of drinking age or who don’t drink alcoholic beverages, Maui Brewing Co. makes a line of sodas, too.
8. Tröegs | Hershey, Pennsylvania
At Tröegs in Hershey, Pennsylvania, you can choose between guided and self-guided tours, making for an incredibly flexible visit and one of the best brewery tours in the U.S. If you go with the self-guided option, the entire experience is also free — great news for travelers on a budget, right? On the other hand, guided tours are just $5, and include a souvenir glass and some samples, so it’s definitely worth the price. During either tour, though, you’ll learn about this newer brewery’s history and process.
A family-owned company that focuses on local ingredients, Tröegs is committed to exploring new, interesting flavors — and that makes the sampling portion of any visit pretty excellent. Not sure where to start tasting-wise? Try bestsellers like the Perpetual IPA or Tröegenator. Along with the company’s great beer, you can enjoy some made-from-scratch food, including bread baked fresh on site. If you’re not feeling hungry, you can wrap up your tour at the Art of Tröegs gallery instead.

Bhutan Acorn Tours & Travel
Really excellent introduction to this truly amazing and unique country. Hike to Tigers Nest was highlight but there was so much more. Our guide Tashi was superb, very informative but did not overload us. I would recommend this tour highly for anyone with limited time. Very well organized, no hiccups whatsoever.
I recommend Bhutan Acorn Tours Travel to visit Bhutan. Everything was perfect and very well planned by them. Our guide Tashi was always polite and super friendly, nothing went side ways. Many thanks for your services !!!
Adventure Himalayan Travels
Very well run by the local tour company (Gakyil) . My guide and driver were excellent.(Dev and Tashi) Both had really good knowledge. Tashi my guide gave me a great insight into Budhisim. We also had a lot of fun and many laughs. I highly recommend this tour. Bhutan is a real eye opener. There should be more places like this in this world. Glenn Burnside New Zealand
Adventure Himalaya was not the tour operator as stated, We discovered on arrival that it was Bhutan Aries Tours and Treks. They did a very good job but we like to know who we are dealing with early on and have contact information in case unforeseen events occur. Our major disappointment involves the accommodations we received in Phodrang . In e-mails, websites, and in the itineraries, we were told we would be in 3 star hotels. In fact, the Bhutan Government Route Permit provided to us by Adventure Himalayan stated we we staying at the Dewachen Hotel with 3 stars. We were taken to the Thegchen Phodrang Guest House which is not rated as a hotel. We had to walk several minutes down a muddy road, then on arrival the electricity in the house was off and we were led to our room up a dangerously dark stairway. The electricity was later turned on. The room had no telephone, no WiFi, no television, was not properly heated, and in the morning there was no hot water. We checked booking websites and discovered the current rate for this guest house is $28 US per night. We would very much like to understand how and why this whole situation occurred.

Luxury Holidays Nepal Pvt. …
My husband and I just returned from a 7-day tour of Bhutan, organized by Luxury Holidays Nepal, and we were blown away by the beauty of this country. It seemed like an Asian version of Switzerland to us, with its gorgeous snow-capped mountains, and foothills terraced with rice fields. It also has a Swiss-like attention to detail and quality in its architecture and handicrafts. The hotels are not up to the same standards unfortunately, unless you want to pay a fortune for 5-star hotels, but the 3-star ones selected for us were adequate. Everything else done by Luxury Holidays Nepal was top-notch. All communication and visa application before the trip was efficient, the pick-up at the airport went totally smoothly, and it was upon this pick-up that we met Sangay and Chimi, our guide and driver for the week, and the nicest people you could possibly imagine. The two of them fully demonstrate the warmth and hospitality that is typical of the Bhutanese people, but we got an added bonus in them, because they are hilarious! They had us laughing all over this beautiful country. In general, it seems that Bhutanese guides really love their jobs, and we enjoyed watching them laugh together as they met up at various tour sites. It's a small country and a small tourism industry, so not only do the guides meet up, but you often see the same tourists at different venues! It made for a very intimate experience, and we feel very lucky to be among the few who have experienced this wonderful country. If you can afford it (it is expensive!), I highly recommend a visit to Bhutan, and if you do go there, I highly recommend that you turn to Luxury Holidays Nepal to organize your adventure. With their team behind you, you will have happy travels in the country known for its Gross National Happiness!
Very good tour handled by Amen Tours Nepal. Things worked good
World Tour Plan
Everything about the tour was excellent. The itinerary was very interesting and the selected hotels were convenient and comfortable and the staff and and and food were very good. But what made the tour most enjoyable was my guide, Tenzin, and my driver. Their English was excellent and they were fun, flexible and knowledgeable. I can not recommend them highly enough.
I have wanted to go to Bhutan for some time and my first visit planned by World Tour Plan exceeded all of my expectations. They were able to accommodate changing the itinerary of the Drum Trek path to 4 days instead of 5 days due to our travel schedules. When visiting the towns of Paro and Thimphu, our guide (Chencho) was highly knowledgeable and shared Bhutan’s history, Buddhism, and current events, and he and our driver (Singye) took us around to key attractions (museums, palace, monasteries, etc). The hiking trek was incredible, where we hiked through the mountains and saw once in a lifetime views. The trek itself was moderate and we had an entire team of our guide, a chef, and a mule “driver” who brought all the camping gear. Our trip to Bhutan was life changing, and I highly recommend World Tour Plan if you plan on going.
MTA Destination Experts
Thanks for wonderful tour guide and driver, our 5 day-stay in Bhutan became unforgettable memories. The total 5 days tour was well structured which included various sight visits and cultural experiences and particularly, all foods were delicious. The guide was very informative and approachable tour guide and his knowledge was not limited to simple explanation of cultural sights - it's way beyond so that we could learn the spirits of Bhutanese. Their unstoppable hospitality made us decide to definitely come back again Bhutan. The coordinator of tourradar also supported us for whole the process. As the travel to Bhutan requires many complecated process, their timely and ressonsive services helped us a lot.
We had an amazing time in both countries. Hotels are great, guides are knowledgeable and friendly, food is phenomenal. Gentrification is worldwide, and Nepal and Bhutan are changing rapidly. But they still retain their traditional culture - something you probably won't see 20 years from now. Go NOW! You will have experiences that you won't find on any other country left on earth.
Intrepid offer a high quality package and they deliver exactly what you pay for.
I have undertaken intrepid/geckos trips before and am always impressed by the product given and the style of travel
Himalayan Adventure Treks &…
Few days before we completed our Bhutan package Tour 6 days organise my Himalayan Adventure treks and tours. Mr. Bhagwat is a very helpful and great senses of humour person. he knows how to deal with guests. Bhutan was incredible and its great to see the Bhutanese culture and living style. We had a great time in Bhutan all the services and activities done as on itinerary. Guide Norbu was excellent and very knowledgeable guide explain many things about his country. Tiger nest is the most attraction part in Bhutan but bit hard to climb. So far it was good experience. Thanks all.
My clients had great time at Nepal. I personally appreciate the efforts of Bhagawat in making their stay wonderful. He goes out all the way to keep his customers happy. Am glad to chose him as my partner for all my future Nepal Tours.. Sridhar Sharma
Superlative in every way. Far exceeded all expectations. We thank everyone at One Seed and Bhutan Wilderness Adventures, especially Tshering, our expert guide, and his team in the trek. I could write a book here - instead, go and experience for yourself!
The trip was very exotic.

Female Guide Holiday
My husband and I just returned from our Bhutan trip and we had to tell you how absolutely wonderful it was organized by Serene Himalaya. Thx team
Amazing bhutan trip. People there is very nice. Its quite pricey but it's worth the journey. Love the culture and the view is superb.thx serene for organizing my short gateway to Bhutan
Himalayan Glacier Adventure…
This tour was through Bamba Experience and I have to say Bamba was excellent. Because I was on the road for 94 days in total, with sometimes limited web access, I missed the email with my Bhutan Visa. You cannot board a plane to Bhutan from India without a visa. But a call to Bamba Experience resolved the problem in minutes and I was able to make my flight. My guide and driver in Bhutan were excellent. We hit every temple at the perfect time to hear the chanting and music, they included things that I wanted to see that were not listed in the itinerary, they were open, friendly and informative and I really got a feel for the country given I only had 4 days including travel time. If I had more time, I would add Jakar and Punakha. Bhutan was a serene oasis after the hustle and bustle of India and Nepal.
We just finished a trip in Bhutan with Bamba Experience - you guys rock! Our guide and driver were amazing! They were very professional, knowledgeable and entertaining too. We didn't want to come home! We were a little short on time for this trip, so we chose to do the 5D/4N Bhutan Tibetan Kingdom tour. This trip covered all the main sights such as Tiger's Nest Monastery, Tashichho Dzong in Thimphu and lots of beautiful scenery, which is what drew us to Bhutan initially. The hotels and food on this trip were wonderful too, definitely exceeded my expectations. Bamba Experience allowed us the freedom of independent travel in Bhutan, with the skills and knowledge of our awesome guides who made us feel so welcome in their country. It was hard to say goodbye. Highly recommended! We'll be back to book our next trip with you guys :)
Bhutan Best Inbound Tour
The trip was very well organised and both our driver and guide were polite and attentive to our needs. All the hotels were 3 star with plenty of local character. There were enough activities everyday to keep us busy. Where there was a "rest break" our guide was happy to replace it with a hike. The local people were very friendly and the scenery was always so beautiful and green.
We had a fantastic tour provided by our knowledgeable and flexible tour guide, Phurba and driver Jimi. They anticipated our interests and made adjustments to the trip as we got to know each other. They helped us understand a country and culture so different than our own. We loved the home stays and monastery stay as well as beautiful hikes and a visit to a school. We had a wonderful week.

Buthan Tour hat für unsere kleine Reisegruppe (4 Personen) im Juni 2018 eine wunderbare Reise in Buthan organisiert. Wir haben neben Thimphu auch Punakha im Osten und Ha im Westen besucht. Der Bus war bequem und alle Hotels sehr angenehm. Die Begleitung durch Ram, Tensing und den Fahrer war sehr angenehm. Es war eine sehr interessante Reise durch ein wunderbares Land.

Every minute of this 14 day trip from the east to the center of Bhutan was a delight! We had a unique experience and the opportunity to get an unforgettable insight into this marvelous country due to Ram, our skilled and warm-hearted guide, which had worked in the past in different Swiss cooperation programs knowing interesting people.
Mr. Benson Group
I cannot recommend this company highly enough. The communication is outstanding from the start. The owner -Ram- deals with you directly and will call you to talk about your trip in detail and what he can offer if you prefer rather than exchanging tons of emails. He follows up with lots of links and offerings before setting the itinerary. His English, knowledge, and enthusiasm will be evident when you talk to him.
Before visiting Bhutan, we did research and found the Book Bhutan Tour website, we visited a website and we found that they have served mostly Swiss Diplomats guests, for that reason we immediately reserve through Book Bhutan Tour. Ten days tour to Bhutan is an amazing experience. We are fortunate to have Nawang Drakpa (our guide) who is knowledgeable, kind, and understanding. He ensures our safety and attentive to our needs.
Caroline Müller family
We traveled as a Swiss couple for 8 days with Mr. Ram, the owner, and Mr. Migma, our guide. We had a great experience with them and learned a lot about the country, the people, and Buddhism. Many interesting temples and monasteries, beautiful scenery with mountain ranges, rice fields, villages where time stood still, hikes off the beaten track, great hotels, good food, nice farm stay with boiling hot stone bath, We recommend Mr. Ram, a very knowledgeable, helpful, and well-organized tour operator.
Mr. Chandan Family
If you want to see the real Bhutan then look no further than Mr Ram Dorji. Not only he would go out of the way to make the best of your tour but will make sure when you leave Bhutan you take great memories with you! I have traveled across the world and many tour agencies help you build REEL memories but Ram would make sure you have REAL memories. He is an asset to Bhutan and Bhutan tourism.

Stephanie & Randel
We have visited a lot of countries but Bhutan is very special and with Ram and Book Bhutan Tours it was even more special. From the time they picked me and my wife up from the airport to the 10 days later they dropped us off again, they never stopped smiling. We had so much fun with them and the knowledge they shared about the country was amazing. Read Review on TripAdvisor
Bhutan, the land of the thunder dragon and happiness! We were 4 women with the dream to travel in this small, hidden, not of many known countries to understand Bhutan, the land of the thunder dragon and happiness! We were 4 women who had the dream to travel to this small, unknown country to understand a little bit of the culture, the secrets, and the mystic behind it.
I’ve just got back from my second tour in this totally captivating country, this time leading a 12 night yoga and meditation tour. Our theme was Joy and oh my did we have the most joyous time ever! Every day was an adventure and our small group of six (including our guide Sajan and driver Raj) soon became great friends sharing unforgettable memories.
Mr. David Tolson group
What an amazing time we had with Book Bhutan Tours! Our guide Sajan and drivers Raj and LB were knowledgeable, thoughtful, and good company. The owner Ram takes great interest in how your tour is going, keeping in touch and meeting up where possible. Read Review on TripAdvisor

Great country, great people, great scenery, great weather, great guidance. We visited Bhutan for 7 days as a mix of hiking and culture- organized by Mr. Ram- the owner of Book Bhutan Tours.

What our guests say.
We were very impressed with the services provided by Bhutan Travel Bureau. From our initial contact where we were provided with useful information to aid in planning our trip, to the quick replies and efficient rebooking of our flights and hotels when events outside of our control caused a change in schedule, they were always on top of everything. Once we started our tour, both our driver and guide were very professional, knowledgeable and capable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Bhutan. It is a beautiful country with lovely people and an interesting culture. We were happy with our itinerary and the amount of time we spent in each city. Our guide, Carma, was excellent! We could not have asked for a better guide. He was friendly, polite, personable, patient, and accommodating to our wishes. He was extremely knowledgeable about Buddhism and Bhutanese culture. We learned a lot.
A wonderful 8 day exploration in September of Western Bhutan which exceeded all our expectations. There were four of us aged between 27 and 72, of varying fitness levels. The care that was taken of us by our guide Thinlay and driver Karma was fantastic, we were in very capable hands. They were patient, friendly and keen to make our trip memorable and interesting. The climb to the Tiger’s Nest on the last day was the climax of an unforgettable holiday. We’ll definitely be going back for another trip!
I was on a solo trip to Bhutan in Sept. 2019. I was a “difficult” customer in the sense that I had lots of special requirements. BTB´s guide dealt with them in a very efficient and friendly manner and I had a truly unique experience. I also appreciated the driver´s calm and solid ways, as the road conditions in Bhutan are sometimes bad. Before the trip, communications with BTB were smooth and fast. I can sincerely recommend BTB.
Our ten day tour with Bhutan Travel Bureau was fantastic. Thinley was an excellent guide who spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was very kind and helpful but also allowed us time on our own when needed. The car (a new Toyota) was very comfortable and had lots of space for luggage and pillows for the passengers. BTB was very helpful in tailoring a tour to our preferences and always went above and beyond when we had extra requests. Cannot recommend highly enough!
