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.

"Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. It is quite a bit of drinking, so it would be best to come with a full stomach and plans to do something downtown before driving. The variety and quality of the beer was good."
"The Denver Microbrewery Tour would have been better had they offered some food or snacks along with all of the beer. "
"Had a great time on the tour. We are Denver area residents and big into the beer scene already. We were given this Cloud 9 Living experience as a gift and chose to enjoy a late October Sunday afternoon, before the weather turned too cool. We met in an easy-to-find location, and the group gathered right on time. There were maybe 14 people on the tour, and the group size was just right. At first, people kept to themselves, but quickly began to mingle once beer samples were poured. There was a nice mix of out-of-towners (majority) and a few of us from the area. The locations we visited (there were 4) were all walking distance around downtown and, for non-locals, were probably perfect ones to choose. All staples with good atmospheres and solid beers. (As not only a local, but someone who works downtown, unfortunately, none of the locations or beers were new to me -- but I did enjoy watching others experience our great town.) The guide was great -- did a nice job mixing in information about beer and the brewing process, with a few stories of the locations we visited and city trivia along the way. All and all, I would definitely promote this experience to non-locals in the future. Please note that although Cloud 9 Living only had this tour as an option, Denver Microbrew Tours also has one of the RiNo breweries. A bit more "seedy" in that RiNo continues to be regentrified. However, the area is booming with several small craft breweries and it might be of interest to a local crowd who hasn't been to all of them or who has hesitated to check out the area."
