Discover Cincinnati Breweries Tours with Craft Connection!
The Beginning of Cincinnati Brewery Tours
Craft Connection began offering the finest Cincinnati Brewery Tours in Cincinnati in May, 2014. The business started with one 14-passenger bus with the intent to transport people to and from breweries in the Greater Cincinnati region. Brother-in-laws Ben Beachler and Bryan Moritz had a passion for Cincinnati Craft Beer. The owners were inspired by the breweries that began to open in the last several years; great taprooms and delicious, artfully crafted beers began being produced all across the Greater Cincinnati region – and it continues to get better!
The purpose of starting Cincinnati Brewery Tours was to transport people to the amazing Cincinnati Breweries, while teaching them about Cincinnati Craft Beer at each location. The Cincinnati Craft Connection Experience is a mix of drinking delicious beer and learning about the product to increase engagement and respect for the local craft.
Cincinnati Brewery Tours; Present Day
Craft Connection continues to offer the best Cincinnati Brewery Tours. It is now the top rated Cincinnati Brewery Tour Experience and one of the most fun, educational experiences in Greater Cincinnati. The now three 14-passenger buses can be seen traveling around Cincinnati every day, all-year round. People’s thirst for delicious, local craft beer is only getting stronger. As Craft Connection is being recognized as the best Cincinnati Brewery Tour Experience, guests from all over the country have traveled (and continue to travel) to explore what is going on in the Cincinnati Craft Beer world. Additionally, Craft Connection now works with 17 breweries and has added two distilleries in Northern Kentucky to the route. The tours are so enjoyable, it’s not uncommon for guests to return for their second, third, fourth, and now fifth Tour Experience!
Craft Connection has transported over 20,000 guests on their Cincinnati Brewery Tours. That amounts to over 1,000 brewery stops and countless beers being enjoyed by the Craft Connection guests. That is a lot of beer and a considerable amount of beer education but that is what Cincinnati Brewery Tours are all about!
The Cincinnati Brewery Tour Experience
The Tour Experience lasts between 3 and 4 hours with 3-4 brewery stops. The price ranges between $50 and $60 per person. This includes transportation, tours, and tastings at each brewery. Craft Connection’s highly trained Tour Guides will take all guests on a production tour of each brewery. The Tour Guide delves into the beer making process, the breakdown of ingredients, and the specific brewery’s history. Guests walk away with a better understanding and respect for craft beer and why it is important to support local craft breweries. The “fun” aspect is also getting to try the product that is brewed on site…fresh and delicious! Each guest will drink 3-4 6 oz. tastings at each brewery. After four years of business, no one has ever complained about the amount of beer they receive on the Cincinnati Craft Connection Tour Experience. Guests can book online via the real-time online calendar.
