NorCal Summer Brewery & Beer Bus Tour

For 2012, our Saturday NorCal Summer tour visits:

Bear Republic Brewing Company

Lagunitas Brewing Company (lunch stop)

Iron Springs Brewing

This is a full day tour and tasting that's the perfect insiders beer event.

Tour Details

The full-day tour includes a round-trip transportation in a very cool ride, on-board blind tastings, a gourmet lunch, beer tastings at three breweries, a behind-the-scenes brewery tour, a handy souvenir, a tour guide, and gratuities for brewery and charter staff.

Touring Bus: Take BART to the San Francisco Civic Center, where your private bus awaits you, right next to the library.

Price: $100.00/person and includes everything.

Times: We'll visit three epic breweries, starting at 9:30 AM and ending at 5:30 PM.

Payments: Send your payment to and [masked] (use the "gift" setting to avoid fees.)

I'll post additional information closer to the actual date of the event.

    How much fun did I have?! Let's count the ways.....
    * got to pay homage to Lagunitas and check out Iron Springs that would otherwise not hit my radar;
    * beers! Tasted many!;
    * met fun new people;
    * continued my beer ed; and
    * learned a hilarious new twist on an old slang, thanks to tour guide Kass!!! ;)
    Thank you, Cliff, for making this happen, taking care of all the planning details and 'sheparding' beer-zy enthusiasts! Look forward to the next one!

    I had fun. Well, I'm sure I had fun before lunch. After lunch is still a little fuzzy. None of the pictures are embarrassing though, so I'm pretty sure I had fun after lunch. It's such a nice group of people. I'm sure they were all laughing *with* me.

    No, seriously. It was a blast. Please schedule another one and put me on the list. One improvement would be to have a second loading point scheduled at a BART stop farther out. El Cerrito maybe.

    This was great way to tour these breweries! The bus guides really knew their stuff and the brewery tastings and tours were fun and informative. As always, BABS people made the event a lot of fun!

    The stop at the Bear Republic was to rushed, to enjoy. Lagunitas was great as usual and Iron Springs was good.

    I hope you enjoyed the beer bus tour and tasting as much as I did. I've posted photos of the event on the MeetUp page and BABS Facebook page. Thanks.

    Lots of fun. Wish that we had had a little more time at the last place to grab dinner as well. The order was excellent as we moved from north to south and Lagunitas in the middle was a lot of fun.

    This event is officially SOLD OUT! All the seats have been paid for and no one has dropped out or canceled. For those of you on the wait list, I would urge you to consider the CA Beer Festival in Novato, coming up next month, Saturday, September 22. We'll have a bus picking people up at the Civic Center and transporting the group to the picnic grounds. Details here

    Reminder: There will be lite (salty) snacks to go along with your beer sampling on the bus trip north, but, we suggest having a light breakfast before you arrive. You’re also welcome to bring your own food for the trip. Bottled water will be available at all times. Weather: The forecast for Saturday is perfect for beer lovers. 95 degrees in Healdsburg, CA (Bear Republic), 90 degrees in Petaluma (Lagunitas), and 86 degrees in Fairfax, (Iron Springs.) this Saturday. By the time we return to San Francisco, it will be in the 80’s.

    Potty talk: The bus has no bathroom, but each stop will have plenty to go around.

    We have a private bus - so you can leave valuables onboard as you exit for each tour and tasting.

    I have four (4) seats available, so if you have a friend who might like to join us - let them know. I'll be sending everyone the itinerary this weekend which outlines the tour and other activities. Remember, if you can, take BART to the SF Civic Center and avoid driving.
