Excellent private tours from Illiana Brew Bus

Excellent private tours from Illiana Brew Bus. Our driver, Anthony was great. Very luxurious riding accommodations (comparable to a party bus or limo). The driver even offered to let us play our own music. Each of the breweries had something special to offer. Planning process was very straightforward, and they do an excellent job accommodating you in every way possible to make the experience a great one. It was an awesome way to spend a Saturday night with coworkers and friends. I think I speak for everyone in our group when I say it was a night to remember. Will definitely be looking into another brew bus tour soon. Highly recommended!!

This was our second time using Illiana Brew Bus and once again it was perfect!!!

This was our second time using Illiana Brew Bus and once again it was perfect!!! I wanted to surprise my fiance and get a group of friends together for a tour for his birthday. Illiana brew bus ended up surprising me by decorating the bus with a birthday banner and decorations and even supplied cups for the growlers we had purchased at the breweries. They recommended the top places to go and made the night run smoothly! We were able to play our own music and everything. SUCH A GREAT TIME! All of our friends kept talking about how awesome it was all night. We will definitely be doing it again!

We did a five brewery tour in southwest Michigan and it was a blast

We did a five brewery tour in southwest Michigan and it was a blast. The driver was awesome friendly & knowledgable on the brews & locations. At every stop, I chat up the brewery staff and have them recommend my next drink or delicious eats. Bring your bus-ride food & munchies too… because you will need them!

My girlfriends and I had the BEST time today

My girlfriends and I had the BEST time today, October 1st, 2017! The brew bus was comfortable, fun, and had treats for my friends and I. It was very reasonably priced. We visited many wineries and had a blast! The owner and her driver were awesome and made sure we all had an excellent time! We will absolutely do it again! Thank you for your hospitality and a wonderful time!!

What an awesome time!

What an awesome time! Raquel was amazing- high energy and super outgoing. She was so accommodating in taking pictures and making sure we had time to get what we wanted at each stop. We visited four breweries and each one was better than the last! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to experience some amazing craft beer in Indiana!

We had a BLAST on the Brew Bus

We had a BLAST on the Brew Bus. We would absolutely do it again. Raquel was very fun and interactive with us but also professional (plus she dealt with our drunken silliness).
Our favorite brewery was St. John Malt Bros. They were extremely welcoming and generous.

We can’t wait to come up with another excuse to take the Brew Bus

The Illiana Brew Bus is the way to go! Worry free night out. Wine Tours a must! I’ve been on the other, will definitely choose Illiana over any other.

A great experience

A great experience – Raquel took great care of booking and answering any questions I had along the way. Angel, our driver, was nice, fun, and did a great job of making sure we got to each stop on time. The bus itself was clean and had lots of space. We had a fun girl’s day out and will definitely recommend to others! Thank you

What a pleasure it is to work with Raquel!

What a pleasure it is to work with Raquel! We put our heads together and Illiana Brew Bus is participating in a wonderful fundraiser for Officer Joe Pacheco, a Munster Police Officer who was diagnosed with stage IV, aggressive, inoperable, malignant brain tumor. The news has shaken his world. And thanks to Illiana Brew Bus, they are donating a private tour experience at an upcoming event to help raise money to support Officer Joe and his family. Thank you so much for your generosity, kindness and giving back to the community!
