What is a brewery tour?

Brewery tours are Pittsburgh adventures that explore the booming craft beer scene. 70-something breweries now call Greater Pittsburgh home. Our excursions are like a 3-hour speed date with a few of our favorites.

What’s included in a craft beer tour?

  • About 3 pints worth of YOUR CHOICE of beer samples
  • Fun facts about Pittsburgh and its beer
  • VIP treatment from the guide and breweries
  • Typically a behind-the-scenes brewery tour at one or more stops
  • Water and popcorn on the bus
  • A cooler to store growlers you buy along the way
  • Unique exposure to the emerging beer scene

How long are the tours?

Tours are about 3 hours, give or take 30 minutes for our city’s infamous traffic. And sunshine. Tours tend to move a little slower when there is sun to be enjoyed on breweries’ patios. Tours visit 3 breweries in 3 hours.

Which breweries do tours visit?

We partner with 9 local breweries to provide memorable experiences. Most public tours have a schedule on the individual tour page, but might switch it based on brewery availability, baseball games, traffic, weather and, honestly, preference. We want to make sure that each tour has a great line up.

Which types of tours are available?

Public tours are open to all beer lovers who are 21 years of age or older, which is the legal drinking age in Pennsylvania. Most beer tours cost $59 and non-drinkers can tag along for $40. Tag-alongs must also be 21 years of age or older.

Private tours are also available for groups of 8 or more. Check out more info here!

Is BYOB allowed?

Tours include plenty of samples so please no BYOB on public or private tours. This is a rule for several reasons. First, this is a celebration of local beer, not a booze cruise. We don’t mean to sound snooty, but we want to set expectations. Second, lots of passengers don’t finish their beer or ask for half pours at the last stop. You can always pick up an extra pint or fill a growler along the way!

Is this a local tour company?

Heck yes! The company is owned by proud Pittsburghers. The tours are given by proud Pittsburghers. Porter Tours is also heavily invested in the community, providing cash and in-kind donations to local charities and breweries. We love this city so it should be no surprise that we invest in it.
