TripAdvisor Review of RVA Brew Crew "RVA Brew Crew is an excellent way to taste many of the great beers Richmond has to offer. The staff is amazing and well versed in the local beer scene. If you've come to Richmond to taste the local beers, or you are a local who wants to find new places to grab a beer you've never had, this is a great option to do so. It's not just beer, but you can also check out the many cideries and distilleries in the area too. If you have a big crowd, you can also rent the bus out for your own crew exclusively.

Google Review of RVA Brew Crew "I booked a private tour with RVA Brew Crew for my husband's 30th Birthday. We had the BEST time and it was so fun to get a group of our friends and family together to celebrate! We had the bus all to ourselves and it was fun being able to ride together and dropped off and picked up when needed. Branden is AWESOME and we even got to meet her mom who was so sweet as well! I would highly recommend booking them for a private tour or just booking them anytime! It's definitely a fun time and it's so nice not having to worry about transportation!"

As Founder & Chief Fun Officer here at RVA Brew Crew, my job is to ensure you have the BEST time while showing you exactly why Richmond was voted as the #1 beer destination IN THE WORLD in 2018 by VinePair. Sit back, relax and enjoy drinking your way around this amazing city, one beer at a time. This business wouldn’t be possible without the amazing support from our wonderful passengers.
