What is included with my ticket purchase?
Each person will get a Beer From Here glass for the tastings, a Beer From Here koozie to keep your beers cold, tour cards about the breweries we will be visiting, small snacks, water, along with safe and fun transportation. We will also have discounts for Uber and Lyft for your safe transport home.
How many breweries will be visited?
Our public tours have 3-4 brewery stops on Thursday’s and Friday’s in a 4 hour tour w/ an option to be dropped-off at one of our city’s fine beer establishments at the end of the tour. The Saturday and Sunday tours include 3 brewery stops in a 5 hour tour.
Private tours can be crafted to include as many or as little stops as desired. We’ll help you plan out a fun excursion!
Where do I get picked up and dropped off?
The majority of public tours will pickup at Torched Hop in midtown due to it’s central locale. Otherwise for a handful of tours the meetup spots are strategically placed brewpubs and restaurants that pass the test for great food and craft selection and are easily accessible by Marta, Uber, or Lyft.
What time should I show up?
Please show up at least 15 minutes prior to the tour’s scheduled start time. We want you to get the most out of this trip so we are on a tight schedule. You will need to leave time to get checked-in, wrist-banded, and boarded before the tour begins. No promises that those on board will not boo you for delaying the tour.
Are the brewery stops the same for each tour?
No they are not. We like to keep it fresh and help you get the most out of Atlanta’s craft scene by changing up our tour partners. We want you coming back to keep exploring! Due to the different hours of operation for each brewery, the tours are adjusted accordingly. There’s no need to fret because all the breweries we stop at are unique and making quality beers that have been taste-tested for our seal of approval. All stops are subject to change based on hours of operation and special events at the breweries (sometimes big spenders come in and rent them out on planned dates).
How many beers are we talking here on a standard tour?
You can expect (2) 8 oz pours at each brewery to get you started. Many people use the half pours to try something different than they’re used to or to test drive one they think they want a full pour of. As of September 1st, 2017 our laws changed to where you can actually buy beer at the brewery! Our tours range from 2-4 breweries on a trip and sometimes include a distillery stop.
I'm interested in private tours...
Yes! Our fleet can accommodate private rentals ranging from 4 people to 55 people on a single vehicle. Pricing varies by vehicle, timing, and party size but our rates are very competitive with anyone in town. Private rentals can be used for birthdays, fun company outings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, wedding parties, graduations, and many more. We are here to help you celebrate in style. In addition to Atlanta area brewery tours we also offer day trip excursions to visit the growing beer scenes in Athens and Blue Ridge, GA to help further promote the great products being made in Georgia. And if beer isn’t your thing (we hope we can change that!) we can offer A Crafted Experience and arrange outings to visit local distilleries, cideries, and the North GA wineries. Beer, cider, wine, or spirits we encourage you to DRINK LOCAL PROUDLY! You are welcome to request specific destinations or we can craft it for you. Just reach out to us info@beerfromherebrewtours
How many people do I need for a private tour?
Our price-points decrease with the number of attendees in the group but we can easily accommodate groups of 4-55 but your rate gets a little better when you hit the 8 person threshold. Any questions, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No question here, You MUST be at least 21 years old
Due to Georgia State Law, persons must be 21 or older to enter the breweries so you must be 21 to take a tour with Beer From Here. All customers on board must possess a CURRENT ID indicating you are at least 21 years of age
Is drinking allowed on the bus?
We do the driving if there’s less than 12. For groups of 15 or less there is a hired driver fee to have beer on board. We partnered with one of the few area limo companies properly licensed to make sure you can. For private tours we can either employ a BYOB policy or we can do tour add ons and arrange beer packages based off of your requests and likings. We KNOW Beer From Here and would love to be your personal shopper for your event. Most breweries in town have cans or bottles available for purchase to-go. To wrap it all up, we have coolers to put said beer in.
Am I able to bring my own alcohol?
No, the only alcohol allowed on board is what is purchased at the breweries.
Do I need to tip the guide and driver?
We think you will be thrilled with the service because that is what we strive for. Like if you were dining out, you’d be happy dropping 25% no issue. But no, it is not required to tip but if you had a great time and you think they did a great job it will definitely be appreciated!
Tour is done, now how to get home?
Get Home Safely! We highly encourage arranging a designated driver to pick you up after the tour. Our Atlanta pickups/drop offs will always be near a MARTA station or easily accessible by Uber or Lyft. We will have a discount code good for $20 off your first Uber or you can use code BREWTOUR16 for Lyft and receive $50 in ride credits for your use. If you need help before the tour please contact us. During the tour your guide is always there to help.
Do you ever cancel tours?
We don’t plan on ever canceling tours but weather and other issues may occur that will prohibit us from running a specific tour. If a tour has less than 6 tickets sold we may choose to not run that tour. If this occurs, you will be refunded your full purchase price or given a credit for another tour, your choice.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
There’s a 50% deposit required to secure your private tour on the calendar that is non-refundable. Once you give us the green light we pay and book your vehicle. Cancellations made more than 72 hours before the scheduled event will receive a full refund on the remaining balance; cancellations made within 48 hours of event will receive 50% of the remaining balance; and no refunds for cancellations made 24 hours prior.
What is Beer From Here's Behavior and Sick Policy?
Please keep in mind that the beers that you will be sampling can be up to three times higher in alcohol by volume than a standard domestic beer. Our mission is for you to have a good time but if you happen to become too intoxicated to the point of being disruptive to other bus passengers or brewery guests, you will be ejected from the bus and NO refunds will be given. If you get sick on the bus or expel any gross body fluids you will be charged a $250 clean up fee. Everyone around you will let you know immediately just how gross it is. Don’t be that person!
Are your tours wheelchair accessible?
Sorry, but at this time we do not have the proper equipment to accommodate any wheelchairs on board.
Is there a dress code?
Nope! Dress to impress. Dress for comfort. You be you. We just require the standards… shirt, some form of pants/shorts, and comfortable shoes as parts of the tours may require you to be walking around unforgiving metal brewery equipment.
