Planning a New England Beer Tour

Putting together a fantastic Beer Tour can be an exciting and rewarding experience for beer enthusiasts. Here are some tips to help you plan a successful and enjoyable brewery tour:

  1. Determine your timeframe: Decide how long you want your beer tour to be. Consider the number of breweries you want to visit and the time you’ll need at each location.
  2. Choose your destinations: New England has a vibrant craft beer scene, so research and select the breweries you want to visit. Consider factors like their reputation, beer styles, and proximity to one another to optimize your itinerary.
  3. Map out your route: Once you have your brewery list, plot them on a map to determine the most efficient route. Consider the distance between each brewery and plan your schedule accordingly. Aim to visit breweries within close proximity to minimize travel time.
  4. Check brewery hours: Before finalizing your itinerary, check the operating hours of each brewery. Ensure they are open on the days you plan to visit and take note of any special events or tours they offer.
  5. Plan transportation: Determine how you will travel between breweries. Options include renting a car, using public transportation, or hiring a private driver. Ensure your mode of transportation accommodates your group size and allows for responsible drinking.
