What is a valid photo ID?
Colorado Liquor Laws state that any person consuming alcoholic beverages must possess a government issued form of identification including name, photo, and date of birth, and cannot be expired. Examples of ID include: driver's license or official nondriver's ID, U.S. or foreign passport, U.S. military ID, or permanent resident ID.
Should I bring anything with me?
It is a good idea to bring along a water bottle to use to cleanse the palate between beer tastings, and oyster crackers or pretzels are good to munch on, especially towards the end of the tour. Check the day’s forecast in case sunscreen or an umbrella might be helpful.
I would like to make dinner reservations for after the tour. What time should I make them for?
The 3:00 PM tours generally finish about 5:15 PM, but most people choose to spend more time socializing after. For this reason, it is recommended that you make dinner reservations for 6:00 PM or later so that you do not feel rushed.
Is the tour handicap accessible?

"It was a great experience. We received this as a gift and I'm not actually a "beer snob" but following the tour I am much more knowledgeable which is always a "good thing". Enjoyed our Guide - who even recommended a great place to eat nearby. The places we visited on the tour were quite nice; I would definitely frequent them when in the area. "
"Very limited selection of beer tasting at each brewery. After the first brewery our guide was not very involved in the overall beer tasting information and explanation."
"Made for a great Saturday afternoon! May want to tell people to consider arranging transportation for a ride home after the tour, as there was definitely more drinking (and higher alcohol content) than anticipated!"
