Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Prices are clearly displayed on the booking page and vary based on the tour, city, and season. We encourage our customers to book from our website via our preferred ticketing platform, Eventbrite.


We guarantee the best publicly available prices here (and even run promotions from time to time). The price displayed is the price you pay, and includes all applicable fees and taxes.

What is the maximum number of people per booking?

Our regularly scheduled public tours accommodate up to 11 people. Customers consistently tell us that the small group sizes are one of their favorite things about our tours. This also helps to ensure that everyone has transportation between locations, when required.


If you would like to arrange a larger tour for your group, please make a group inquiry and we'll be more than happy to help.

What is the age requirement?

All tour attendees must be 21 years of age, or older.

What language(s) do you offer on tours?

At this time, tours are only available in English.

How far in advance do I need to book?

We accept bookings up to two hours prior to the start of each tour, as long as space is available. Because we must plan ahead for transportation and brewery visits, walk up attendees are not permitted at this time.

How long does each tour last?

Our regularly scheduled tours are typically four hours in length, but there are exceptions. The exact times will be displayed at the time of booking.

Is there food?

Although the tour does not include a meal, attendees are welcome to purchase food on their own. Many locations serve food on-site from a kitchen or food trucks. You can call or email us a day or two ahead and see what to expect, or just ask your guide at the beginning of the tour.

Where does the tour start and end?

Most tours start and end at different locations. This maximizes the number of locations that we get to visit, but it is your responsibility to get yourself to and from the tour as safely and responsibly as possible. Because our tours are walking focused though city neighborhoods, you usually won't have far to go to get back to the starting point.

Can I purchase additional beer or merchandise?

Of course. Please keep in mind that craft beer often has higher alcohol content. If you consume too much, you may run the risk of not being allowed into a location and/or being removed from the tour at any point. We have yet to receive a complaint that there wasn't enough beer served on one of our tours. With that said, if you've had enough, it's always ok to decline.

Am I supposed to tip the tour guide or bartenders?

No. Our tours are designed and priced to be all-inclusive experiences.  Our guides are professionals who are passionate about what they do. If you feel that your guide has done a great job and made your tour memorable, a tip would be greatly appreciated but never expected and certainly never required. Texas Beer Tour guides have also been trained to never solicit gratuities.

How are the locations chosen?

We take our tours to places we love. Period. With that said, a lot goes into choosing the locations you'll visit. We take care of the logistics and figuring out when breweries have events, large crowds, special releases, and other happenings that we think will enhance your experience. Our tours include small and large production operations, breweries that specialize in different styles, and different taproom atmospheres. Although we may negotiate special pricing and payment arrangements with breweries, Texas Beer Tours and our guides do not receive additional compensation or kickbacks for visiting certain places. You might see bartenders buying your guide a beer as a kind gesture, but nothing more.

Can I order a beer to go as we walk to the next stop?

No. All of the locations we visit are licensed for on-premise consumption only.
