Hotel near Burlington City Brew Tours

If you enjoy yourself a craft beer now and again, the Green Mountain State—home to more breweries per capita than any other corner of the country—is a very, very good place to be. More specifically, our Lake Champlain resort here at Basin Harbor is a very good place to be: not only because we have some fabulous Vermont brews available at our on-site eateries, but also because we provide a geographically auspicious launch pad for exploring the regional brewing scene.

Burlington is the nerve center of Vermont beer—not altogether surprising, given it’s the state’s biggest city—and it’s less than an hour from Basin Harbor. As fun as it is to explore the city’s incredible lineup of breweries, it’s all the more rewarding and convenient to take a guided tour. Today we’ll spotlight a great option for doing just that!

Burlington City Brew Tours

Avail yourself of a driver, beer guide, and exceptionally curated suds safari with a Burlington City Brew Tour. These roughly four-hour-long forays show off the range of scales and styles the city’s brewing industry encompasses, provides behind-the-scenes access, and accentuates the 15 or more craft beers sampled along the way with perfectly paired eats.

Among the craft breweries Burling City Brew Tours explores are the Magic Hat Brewing Co., the Alchemist Cannery, Rock Art Brewery, Fiddlehead Brewing Co., Zero Gravity Brewing, and Three Needs Brewery & Taproom. (You can see a full list here.)

The company offers a variety of public tours: its Classic Brew Tour with a beer-friendly pizza lunch, its nightlife-style Pub Crawl Beer Tour with dinner included, and—venturing farther afield—a tour of Stowe, Vermont’s own share of topnotch breweries.

You can also arrange a private tour if you’d prefer: a customized beer adventure perfect for bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations, or any other special event that finds you luxuriating at Basin Harbor and thirsty for Green Mountain State beer and good times.
