What Can I Expect On My Tour?
The Jax Brew Bus tours local craft breweries in Jacksonville. We will visit three local microbreweries each located in a different Jacksonville area neighborhood and sample the award winning beers that are making Jacksonville a beer destination city. Your brew guide will tell you everything you wanted to know about Jacksonville’s breweries, the brewmasters, the local beer scene, home brewing, and even a little bit about beer history.
Did we mention local beer? Yeah, you will try plenty of that too. In addition to tour samplings the bus has a cooler, ice, and growlers (half gallon beer jugs) to keep any additional beer you purchase cold. Save the beer for later or enjoy it on the ride around town. We also like to keep our riders hydrated, so water is always provided.
The Jax Brew Bus takes care of all of the driving. All you need to do is come prepared to drink great beer.
Is Beer Included In The Price Of My Ticket?
Yes! During the tour you will sample approximately 10-12 four ounce samples of local craft beer. You are not obligated to drink each sample provided. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU ARRANGE TRANSPORTATION OR DESIGNATE A SOBER DRIVER BACK TO YOUR HOME OR HOTEL AT THE END OF THE TOUR
How Long Is The Tour?
Tours typically last 4 ½ – 5 hours (be sure to arrive approximately 15 minutes before scheduled departure time).
Can I Drink On The Bus?
Drinking is allowed on the bus but we only allow beer from Jacksonville’s local craft breweries.
Do You Serve Beer On The Bus?
No. The bus is BYOLB (Bring Your Own Local Beer) only.
Is Food Part Of The Tour?
We do always stop at a location in which food is available and ensure that you have the time to enjoy a meal. However, because of the variety of food allergies and personal preferences we do not provide food as part of the ticket price. You generally can get a good meal for under $12 at one of our stops.

What Is Your Tipping Policy For The Tour Guide?
That’s a great question, and we hear it a lot. Tipping is not required, but most appreciated. Our guides are professionals who are passionate about what they do. To them it’s not just a job, but a way of life. They are storytellers, history buffs, and beer aficionados. Making your experience incredible while they carry the vanguard of fun and safety. If you feel your guide has done a great job and made your tours a memorable one, then certainly feel free to show your appreciation by giving them a tip. Tipping is greatly appreciated but not required.
How Are The Breweries Chosen For Each Tour?
We pick three that are near each other. One for incredible atmosphere, one that has amazing food, and of course all three have great local craft beer.
We would love to take you to all of them, but then we wouldn’t have much time to spend at any specific one. We handle the logistics for you, the safety, and the experience. We’ll do the hard work of figuring out when Breweries have events, crowds, and happenings which would better your experience! If you’d like to customize your tour, please give us a call and we may be able to accommodate.
