This 5-hour tour is perfect for beer beginners, aficionados and home-based brewers alike. Also, find out what foods pair well with different styles of beer on either the daytime (lunch) or evening (dinner) tour.

The evening tour (departing at 5 p.m.), on the other hand, showcases DC's bustling nightlife and brewpub scene, combining old-school brew houses with some of the most popular microbreweries in the area. Enjoy tastings of 18 to 20 beers, with a dinner food-pairing at Capitol City Brewing Company.

Some of the breweries featured on either the daytime or evening tour could include any four of the following: 
Right Proper Brewing Company, Capitol City Brewing Company, Port City Brewing Company, Atlas Brew Works, Bardo, City Tap House, DC Brau Brewing Company, District ChopHouse and Brewery or Hellbender Brewing Company.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

We went to 4 different breweries in the NE area of DC. Our guide, Isaac, was very entertaining and knowledgeable. We tried a wide variety of brews. After visiting 2 sites, we went to a restaurant for a great meal. The folks we met on the tour were a lot of fun!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2016

On the surface, this seems to be the best beer tour everbut what a disappointment, especially for the . The guide was very knowledgeable about the beer-making process, but not very engaging. The first brewery was great! Fantastic beers, fun atmosphere, but it went downhill form there. Too much time spent in the van driving between breweries, and the last place was just kinda creepy. Dinner was advertised as not appetizers, but that's exactly what we gota plate full of apps. Recommend this tour only for the very adventurous.
