Craft Connection is Recognized as the best Cincinnati Brewery Tour. We know our beer!
The best Cincinnati Brewery Tour, Craft Connection Brewery Tours, began offering tours throughout Cincinnati in May, 2014. We started with one, 14-passenger bus, wrapped in our branding with the intention to catch eyes around town. The first four breweries to welcome us through their doors were Rhinegeist, Listermann, MadTree, and Fifty West Brewing. These breweries could not have been more helpful as we developed our routes and tour plans. Their feedback was the main reason we decided to utilize pitchers and provide our guests with their own tastings cups. This allows taproom employees to do their job without us distracting the feel of the taproom. This concept has been well accepted by our guests as they do not have to wait in line, allowing them more time to enjoy the taproom with family, friends, and coworkers. Breweries frequently recommend which beers to sample, mostly because they are brand new and because the brewery is looking for feedback.

Top Rated Cincinnati Brewery Tour
As tours continued to evolve and we had a good routine worked-out (and great tour guides) amazing reviews started pouring in from guests and breweries alike! Breweries constantly tell us how they enjoy working with us because we are well organized and do not tamper with the feel of the taproom. Guests enjoy the experience because all they have to do is sat back, relax, and enjoy the ride as we take them along 3-4 breweries, lead tours, and provide tastings for everyone. It’s a one-stop-shop for those interested in exploring the world of Cincinnati and Dayton craft beer while having fun with family and friends.
CityBeat Cincinnati picked us as the “Best Way to Brewery Hop” in Cincinnati. Not to top that excellent recognition, but Draft Magazine included us alongside brewery tours in Denver, Maine, Belgium, and San Diego as great and unique brewery tours around the world.
This recognition does not go without the help and amazing cooperation from the breweries in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. They were willing to work with us and helped get us rolling. Hopefully they see the benefit as we come up on our 15,000th customer!
