Where do the tours start?
Shine Brewery, 2027 13 St. Boulder, CO, 80302
This is just North of Pearl St. and just South of the Hotel Boulderado. It is on parallel to the Boulder Court House, just across the street on the other block. For driving tours, they now start at Upslope Brewery off of 55th and Central. Custom tours can begin at a location of your choice.
When should I be there?
The walking tour starts at 3pm and the driving tour starts at 2pm so aim to arrive a little before then so the tour can begin promptly.
What should I bring?
Be sure to bring a valid photo ID and dress accordingly if it is cold outside. The saying goes, if you don’t like the weather then wait 15 minutes in Colorado so be prepared for a weather change.
Should I tip my guide after the tour?
Tips are always appreciated.
Do the tours always go to the same breweries?
Both walking and driving tours usually go to the same locations however sometimes the tours go to different breweries or tap houses. While we have a regular route for each tour, sometimes due to special circumstances we may change the order of the tour or go to a different brewery, however, we always make sure every tour experiences a great variety of microbreweries and a fantastic sampling of beer.
Are tours ever cancelled?
Only in the most extreme circumstances. We know how inconvenient it is to change plans so we will make every effort never to cancel. However, we can imagine a few circumstances where we would need to, such as in the case of a hurricane, apocalypse, massive snow storm and a few other instances out of our control.
How old do I need to be?
You must be 21 or older and IDs will be checked at every bar.
What can I expect on the tour?
You can expect local, knowledgeable guides who are happy to answer your questions about Boulder and beer.
