“The Hidden Gems Tour took us to places we hadn’t been to before and didn’t even know about. We now feel like we’ve been let in on a well-kept secret.”

Ali Heben

“I had an amazing time on the Cleveland Brew Bus tour. I thought it was an incredibly unique way to get around town and go to bars in our area. I loved the fact that we went to bars that most people didn’t know of. Small businesses with amazing beers and a great atmosphere. I will most definitely be heading to some of those local but hidden bars again. The service was great at the bars, as well as great service from Leslie, and Brian. Thanks for such a great experience, and i have a feeling you’ll see more of us in the future!”


“We had a great time! Leslie is super knowledgeable about beer making and Cleveland breweries! We loved each place and had an overall fantastic time. Such a great way to see several great places in a short amount of time. Bonus is the safety of the Brew Bus!!! Rufus Rocks!”

“First time on a bus tour of local craft breweries. Great evening – Leslie was entertaining, enthusiastic and informative; other members of the group were fun; local stops were unique. Highly recommend.”

“My friends and I selected the “Hidden Gems” tour and had a fantastic time. The knowledge of the tour guide/owner and the access to each brewery is really special. I would highly recommend this trip for families (where all parties are 21+), birthdays, dates, etc. I can’t wait to pick another tour!”
