Can We Drink Alcohol On The Bus or in the Vehicles?
Sorry, regulations ensure that all consumption and tasting of alcoholic beverages is confined to the breweries and distilleries. You will receive our code-of-conduct contract that will need to be acknowledged in writing via e-mail prior to booking your tour or event. We allow you and your group/friends enough time in each location to enjoy your beer gardens, a pint of beer, pitcher, and/or growler during lunch and after tasting your flight. Unfortunately, just for the hard spirits only, (such as Bourbon and Vodka) you cannot open and consume after your tasting at the distilleries on the property. You can tour, taste and take their delicious products home to enjoy!

Yes, but for certain and special occasions only! Children are welcome to join us for pre-booked family related tours*, such as, family reunions, family outings, weddings, etc. Breweries/Wineries are child friendly and offer activities for them. We have custom tours for families which includes things like: feed the animals at the farms, apple & pumpkin picking, hayrides, face painting, cookie design, and many more creative and seasonal themed ideas. We can do anything – just make a suggestion. 🙂
