West Michigan Beer Tours provides a variety of private tours. We work with our clients to create memorable experiences for their employee, customer, membership, or group activity. In order to create the most enjoyable tours, we utilize our relationships with our brewers, bars /restaurants, hotels, and other local area attractions.
Private tours can be put together for as few as 8 people to large groups of 40 or more. A typical private tour has the following options:
• Custom Itinerary: Choose your length of tour, brewery stops, and other local stops.
• Unique Experiences: Meet and greet with brewers, unique beers and/or brewing experiences, custom itineraries.
• Tour Options: Select your beer, your food menu, your own brewer’s gear, and West Michigan Beer Tours gear.
• Transportation: West Michigan Beer Tours offers a wide selection of vehicles and types of tours, based on size of the group and type of event.

"We booked a walking tour with John back in April and couldn't have been more happy with our experience and guide. I booked the tour as a present for my husband for our 20th wedding anniversary. From the beginning John set out to help make our day memorable. He asked what plans we had and as I shared them with him, he was able to partner us with other community businesses that would help make our special occasion more comfortable and enjoyable. We have lived in the Portage area for the past 30 years so we really weren't sure what to expect. John was funny, engaging, and very informative. I learned much about the downtown area and local craft beer arena that I didn't know. I would highly recommend the tour. Thank you once again John for making our anniversary so much fun!"

"I would like to thank you for a wonderful day on Saturday. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. Andrea and Trevor were great guides. They shared just the right amount of information as the day went on and mingled with the group well. The bus was comfortable and our driver was helpful and courteous. We enjoyed each of the breweries and experiencing what each had to offer both in terms of the beers and ciders and in their individual styles. We received compliments all day about how much fun it was and we owe it all to you. Thank you for providing the organization and hosting such a great event for us!"

"We did a private tour for my 40th, and West Michigan Beer Tour provided us a great time! They were great to work with in terms of planning it, answering questions and changing things as needed. It was well organized, and it was great to just be there to enjoy the day, rather than having to organize things myself. The tour guides were great too. This was a great way to gather friends and family together, as all ages can enjoy this! This was my 2nd tour, I had been part of a bike tour last summer, and that also was great fun! I would definitely recommend the tours either privately or as part of public tour."
