Top Brewery Tours in the US and Worldwide

02 July 2008

For anyone that's ever done a micro-brewery tour, it's an experience a beer lover will never forget. The sights, the smells, the inside info and best of all, the free taster beers. I've done more than one or two of these tours, and from personal experience I can tell you it's a lot of fun to see where some of your favorite beers are born and to sample a beer with the man (or woman) who created that beer. I've sampled from the pigtails and taken my photo with 5-year-old bourbon barrels, and I can tell you it never gets old. Some personal favorites of mine:

Weyerbacher (Easton, PA): Great atmosphere, wonderful beers, friendly people, and the most generous sampling room on the planet.

Weeping Radish: (Outer Banks, NC): Very organic atmosphere, great beers to sample and you have to love any tour done by the brewmaster himself.

Stone Brewing: (Escondido, CA): Amazing building, incredible selection of beers to sample, huge brewing facility, and friendly staff.

Guinness (St James Gate, Dublin, IRE): Incredible tour covering 6 stories, amazing gift shop, and a free pint of Guinness (with a perfect clover pour) on the 7th-story all glass Gravity Bar with a 360-degree unobstructed view of Dublin.
