Tour Description

'Tis the season to be merry!  Come enjoy two Holiday traditions at once, beer and holiday lights.

Our tour includes a variety of craft breweries in St. Paul, brewery stops will vary depending on the tour day.  These include Flat Earth Brewery, located in the old Hamm's Brewery; Bad Weather, the newest brewery to open in St. Paul; Sidhe Brewing, a woman owned brewery; Burning Brothers, a gluten free brewery and Tin Whiskers, who's mission is to make technically excellent beers. 

In-between tasting the seasonal and flagship beer selections we will take the warm luxury motor coach through Phalen Park and enjoy the Holiday Lights in the Park.  While viewing these lights, you'll have fresh holiday popcorn from Candyland that would pair great with any seasonal brew on tap.  So, make sure you get a growler to go at one of our brewery stops!

A stop at Rice Park is a great photo opportunity right in the mist of the twinkling lights.  The tour will conclude back at the starting location, where you will be able to grap another pint, sit back, and reflect on the amazing new way you just enjoyed local brews 'n bulbs.

Friday breweries: Sidhe Brewing, Flat Earth and Bad Weather
Saturday breweries: Flat Earth, Tin Whiskers and Burning Brothers
Sunday breweries: Flat Earth, Tin Whiskers and Sidhe Brewing
