No air conditioning was a big problem.Especially when advertised as part of the shuttle/bus experience. Otherwise it was a great day filled with knowledge and fun.
The tour was FANTASTIC!! Our tour guide and driver were super informative, really nice and a lot of fun. The stops were great and lots of delicious beer tastings. The lunch was superb and plenty of water to hydrate between stops. A keg of beer on the bus was a great touch! Only taking one star away because the bus had no air conditioning and it was over 90 degrees that day! Make sure to book when the weather is mild because it was really hard to get back in and ride in a sweltering bus after drinking beer. I wish we would have known that going in because it was VERY HOT and uncomfortable. All in all though....we would totally recommend to our friends.
Driver and Katie were excellent...
Great, knowledgeable staff, clean safe transportation. My friends loved the beer but we tasted a lot of the same varieties and I wish they had mixed it up a bit. Also wish that there had been more snacks provided or more opportunities to purchase food. The lunch that was provided was sandwiches that were drenched in mayo. They also got my boyfriend's order completely wrong and so he didn't have anything f to eat essentially for the whole trip. The other patrons were a lot of fun though and it was a good time overall.
Lagunitas was the most fun because of the storytelling and the Ambience. It was good to see various sizes of breweries. The bus was comfortable and it was nice to have a beer if we want to do it. Overall just a good time!
Kaite and James were awesome!! We'll definitely do this again and get a group together!
Lunch at Lagunitas would have been better than the sub sandwich on the bus.
Lagunitas was awesome but other breweries were so so.
I've lived in Sonoma County most of my life and have been to many breweries, but his was a great way to experience them. The crew was very informative and accommodating. There was alot of time spent at each brewery.. which is good and bad. I'd rather see another brewery or two and little less time spent at some.
Too much, lots of beers and many technical terms. Wonderful nice people.
I didnt feel like it was as unique of an experience as I thought it would be. I was hoping for more behind the scenes stuff, but we only got that at Lagunitas. It definitely didnt feel VIP lol. The first brewery was great but then the other two it was just sitting there like anyone else and drinking beers. We couldve done that on our own without paying for a whole tour. I just was hoping for a more unique experience. We still had a blast though and Katie was awesome :)
Great trip, guide was very knowledgeable, lots of tasty beer!, one thing I'd change or adjust is to create more of a sit down lunch at one of the breweries. I think this would add more perceived valu to the tour. Other than that lots of fun If recommend it.
