Such a fun NYE!
Dec 2020
We had a great driver who gave us great information and recommendations but also took into account our requests. We would have never been able to travel to (or even know about) the breweries we went to, and we will certainly be making trips back to them! This was our 2nd time on the brew bus and for sure we will be booking future tours!

Awesome beer tastings - third eye really stands out
Sep 2020 • Solo
Took a tour on 9/19 - Fretboard/Sonder/16lot/third eye. Jared was a great host - laud back tour, to schedule, beer selections represented a large variety. 4 groups on our tour became one, the gemutlichiet was that good. Outdoor or spaced far away from others.

Erase your COVID blues with the Brew Bus
Aug 2020
It was a little different - thanks COVID - but the Brew Bus Tour is back and running on all cylinders. This was my 5th tour and is an annual Father's Day present from my kids. I don't want anything else - ever. We went to four breweries (Darkness, Dead Low, Northern Row and Weidemann's) in an airport bus and it was great. It was just family this time - no sharing with "strangers" (who don't stay that way) because of COVID restrictions. No tours of the breweries either this time, but we sat outside in three of the four venues and had a good variety of beers at each establishment. Brian, our driver, was chill, understanding right away that we were experienced and didn't need the History of Brewing that most tours provide. He did give us a few crib notes, and they were appreciated. Highly recommend this tour but I do look forward to the day when COVID is gone, we can win a koozie on the bus and be the first to answer the "What does IBU mean?" question.

Thank you so much for the continued loyalty and support. We appreciate your candid and thoughtful review. There are so many things we wish we could do but simply can't right now but we are making the best out of an odd situation. It means the world to us that there are folks like you who have done the tour so many times. Thank you for the review and we will see you soon.

It was so much fun! Amazing tour guide!
Jul 2020 • Friends
The tour around Cincinnati/Newport breweries was amazing! We booked a private bus tour for a bachelorette party of 10 and there was plenty of room on the bus. Our tour guide Mike had great knowledge of craft beer including how to go about tasting beer correctly, fun facts about Cincinnati’s beer industry, and how each of the kinds of beers are made, such as the why the beer has a specific color. He was able to choose beers that everyone would like along with a few surprises, like a fun tequila barrel aged beer, that no one would be brave enough to try without help. The tastings at each of the breweries were large and the Servatii’s pretzel to much on just top it all. I would highly recommend this tour and it is super easy to book a tour with Mike. Next time we’ll be trying out the Winery tour!

Brewery tour during covid times
Jul 2020
We had a small group of 9. We did our tour during this Covid pandemic for a bridal shower. They took our temps before getting on the bus and we wore masks into the breweries. Once seated at our table we were able to remove our masks. We visited Humble Monk Brewing, Dead Low Brewing and Wooden Cask Brewing. All were great breweries. We stayed with our group the whole time and felt very safe with social distancing. I would highly recommend this tour. Everyone had a great time!

Brew Bus 4 stop tour
We had several things that we did not enjoy about our experience. The first was the fact that we don’t get to pick the kinds of beer that we tasted every other brew bus we have done we have gotten to pick our own flights. The second was that there were way to many people on the tour that were loud constantly so we couldn’t hear the information Matt was giving, the bus never left on time due to all of the people, and it took so long in between receiving the beers that we wish we would have just gone to the breweries ourselves and done flights. We did like the information that Matt supplied us with about the brewing process

We are sorry that you did not enjoy the tour. We would like to get you out on some of our smaller tours to see if that is better for your group. We will reach out and discuss that with you. This is our flagship tour and the reviews over the past six years have been positive if you look here on TripAdvisor. Sometimes we get groups that are a little louder and we do our best to communicate with them that other people are on the tour but in many cases we cannot control them, because if we try that then they will negatively review us too. Its not easy. The reason we pick the beers is because previously, when folks got to pick their own it took too much time, people only tried one different style, some folks got upset who were at the brewery before we arrived because we would take up 20-30 minutes of bartender time just to get our group their beers. Also folks were picking way too high ABV beers and getting overly intoxicated. We decided it best to do a true "tasting" tour where we get varied styles and allow the groups a chance to try new styles they haven't had, or revisit styles they have not had in some time. A tasting tour is what we aim to provide. In addition there are no lines for the beer and you do not have to wait for the beer. It's not a perfect system but it is far better than what we previously had in place. We are sorry this tour didn't meet your expectations, we take this feedback seriously and will talk with our tour guides and other guests on what transpired along the way. Thank you.

Fantastic Brewery Tour in Cincy!
Dec 2019 • Friends
My family decided to do the Cincy Brew Bus tour to kick off our holiday festivities and from start to finish the experience was amazing. Our guide Mike was incredibly knowledgeable about all things beer and Cincy related. We loved all the stops and having Mike select the beers we sampled ensured we tried some new things. Pizza at Taft on stop 2 was clutch because it’s a lot of beer for one afternoon. I highly recommend this tour!

Excellent brewery tour with solid knowledgeable guides who love beer like you do!
Jul 2019
One birthday many years ago, my wife thought it would be cool to take a tour of local breweries. Somehow though the power of the internet, we found Cincy Brew Bus, an experiment of sorts - which we found was just starting out. I honestly remember being told it was one of the first couple tours they did. So here we are, on a used yellow school bus with a bunch of strangers having no idea what to expect and honestly expectations were becoming cloudy, but we were up for a good time no matter what. What became crystal clear rather quickly was the owner knew a lot about the brewery history of the area, appreciated it, and was on fire for the quest for great beer. Damn if that doesn't sound like a cause I can get behind! Right after the first stop of drinks, a tour and chat with a brewer with some Q&A, we all didn't seem like strangers anymore. There was so much interaction between us all during the stop, all barriers were gone. Just a bunch of folks who had that same fire, a love of great beer. Flash forward to today, obviously the school bus got retired and Cincy Brew Bus has established themselves as the premiere brewery tour company in the greater Cincy area. We've taken several tours over the years from them during various stages of growth, and no matter what ends up being different... one thing remains constant. The fire for great beer, the transfer of it's rich history -it's effect on the area, and how it all comes together in the brewing process remains the solid focus for Mike and his team. We are still friends with many of those we've taken these tours with. If you're looking for something great to do in the area, this should be high on your list. Honestly, you're missing out if you don't.
