Now that you've decided to do a brewery bus tour in Austin after reading why you should, it's time to decide which breweries you would like to visit.
There are tons of breweries in the state of Texas, but Austin has become one of the top destinations for people wanting to get a taste of the special kind of beer produced in the capital.
Why is Austin the perfect spot for a brewery tour? The variety, of course! Even if you're a casual beer drinker, you're bound to find something to enjoy at one of the many breweries in the area.
Top Brewery Destinations in Austin
Breweries like Lazarus Brewing Co., Blue Owl Brewing and Zilker Brewing Company are all fantastic. If you prefer not well-known ones, not only in the heart of downtown Austin but also on the north side of town located the breweries that most people forget about. Just north of Highway 183 are dozens of wonderful breweries like Austin Beerworks, Circle Brewing Company and Adelbert's Brewery.
If you're in the mood for some food, head on over to the Arboretum area, where you'll find the restaurant/craft brewery hybrid NXNW.
Lest you think you have to stay in Austin to visit all of the best breweries, never fear. There are plenty of breweries on the outskirts of town.
One of the most popular tours in Austin is to head over to Lake Travis and visit the Infamous Brewing Company and the Oasis Texas Brewing Company before heading on a party barge on the lake. So rather than do a full day of 3 or 4 breweries, cut it in half and do 2 breweries and a boat party.
Finally, you can visit the Hill Country, which is primarily known for wineries, it doesn't skimp on the breweries either. Heading to the Hill Country for your brewery tour is especially beneficial if you are in a party bus because it means your trip will last longer.
If you're booking a party bus, you want to make sure you get some quality time in the vehicle, otherwise what's the point?
In Driftwood and Dripping Springs, you can find Vista Brewing and the Twisted X Brewing Company, respectively. In between stops, you can even stop at the famous Salt Lick BBQ, one of the most popular barbecue joints in Texas!
Austin Brewery Bus Tour Experiences
Brewery tour is one of the most popular events for bachelor parties in Austin. Why is that? Well, there's a certain community aspect, which is inherent to the brewery world that transfers over to its customers. It almost feels like a second home.
When you go on a brewery tour, it is important to select breweries that fit your group. Your two main options are going to be the standard breweries and the microbreweries.
The beers at most of the Austin breweries are connected to the city. Austin's unofficial slogan is "Keep Austin Weird" and that slogan applies to the beer produced here as well. Many people prefer the casual atmosphere of brewery tours over winery tours, which can sometimes be considered more formal. That doesn't mean you should show up at a brewery inebriated (or plan to get inebriated during your tour), but breweries are definitely a little more relaxed than wineries.
