So you've got a date set for your bachelor/bachelorette party, but maybe a winery tour isn't the route you want to take. Or maybe you don't want to travel to the Hill Country to drink. If you don't, then you're in luck! An Austin, Texas brewery tour is the perfect way to spend the day before your nightly festivities. Think of it as an extended pre-gaming session.
Why Go to Austin for Your Brewery Tour?
If you still haven't decided on a city for your bachelor party, then you may need some convincing that Austin is the right place for your celebration. Austin is also home to over 30 breweries that you can visit during your big weekend. Of course, it didn't use to be this way, but over the years the industry has seen a rather notable increase in size. It seems like there are new breweries popping up every single day!
One area where the Austin beer scene benefits over the Austin wine scene is the locations. Most of the wineries are relegated to the Hill Country (there are a few in Austin but they're not as densely populated as the breweries). There are breweries all over the city. No matter which area of Austin you are staying in, there are bound to be a few breweries near you. Be it North Austin, Downtown Austin, the East Side or South Austin, there are a plethora of options for you to choose from. We are partial to Austin Beerworks and Jester King Brewery, but don't forget the unique breweries like Blue Owl Brewing, which is the nation's first sour mash-only brewery!
Why Do a Brewery Tour For Your Bachelor Party?
Look, we're not saying you should only do a brewery tour for your bachelor party, but you should at least make it one of the various activities you have planned (assuming you followed our suggestion and did plan out your weekend). As mentioned above, doing a brewery tour during the day is a great way to get you in the party mood for that night's festivities.
Whether you're a beer aficionado or a novice, a brewery tour is always fun. Not only do you get to learn about the beer you are drinking, but you're also able to try things you may not have tried in a bar or restaurant setting. We've found that tours like these are the best way to get yourself to trying new things. You've already paid for the tour, so what's the harm?
Why is a Party Bus Your Best Option?
Finally, a party bus is the best option for your brewery tour, if only because it keeps your entire group together so that you don't have to rent a bunch of Ubers to cart all of you around. You could choose to book with a company that deals exclusively with brewery tours, but the downside to that is that once the tour is over you are done. With a party bus, you can opt to keep the party bus throughout the night and have it take you wherever you need to go. There also won't be any extra charges for a private tour since all party bus rentals are private.
Plus, there will be plenty of space on a party bus to bring some alcohol of your own. Most party buses are equipped with superior stereo systems and flat-screen TVs as well, which aren't things you're likely to find in a brewery tour company. One thing you definitely want to remember when booking a party bus for your brewery tour is this: find out who is responsible for making reservations at each brewery. Most breweries accept smaller groups on a walk-in basis, but they require advance notice for the larger groups. Some party bus companies will arrange all of this for you, but others will not. Make sure you know if you are responsible for making reservations at the breweries.
When it comes to financial planning, it's the easiest way to make sure everyone knows how much money they have to spend on travel (and they can pay in advance!). When you're planning a bachelor party, the only extra expenses you should have to worry about are food and drinks. Don't make travel a variable cost. Get it locked down in advance so you don't have to worry about it! This will save you from any awkward moments with your friends when it comes to collecting cash at the end of the trip.
