No. Due to the different hours of operation for each brewery, the tours will adjust accordingly. But don’t worry – all the breweries we visit are unique and delicious. We’ve taste-tested them all!

Each tour will last approximately 3 hours (cue the music: “A three-hour tour…”).

The tour includes transportation to and from your downtown, Broad Ripple or Greenwood pick up location to three local breweries on a three-hour tour, a pint of your choice at each brewery, bottles of water on the bus, coolers on board to keep your purchased growlers cold, a Personal Sampling Scorecard to help you keep track of the all the beers you like and the unforgettable experience of drinking with friends on a bright green school bus. Also, a number of our breweries offer merchandise and/or beer container discounts for Indy Brew Bus passengers. Feel free to order a growler or 4-pack to go for your enjoyment on the bus on the way to the next brewery, or keep it cold in our on-board coolers to save for later.

If you are interested in renting the entire bus for a private party, please purchase all 14 seats on the tour. Please contact info@indybrewbus.com with any questions. Click here to learn more about our Corporate Tour options

You will receive a confirmation email when your payment is received. You will not receive actual tickets. Please either print your confirmation email or have it handy on your smart phone when you board the bus.

We want to ensure you spend the maximum amount of time at each brewery. Due to limits on time and resources, we do not offer pick-ups and drop offs from locations outside the Downtown Indianapolis area. You may choose a hotel, restaurant, bar, or other location for pick up, within this pick-up zone. We do, however, offer separate tours that depart from Broad Ripple and Carmel.

Yes! We will have coolers available for you on the bus to keep your to-go purchases (growlers, bullets, crowlers, bombers cans or bottles) cold and cups for you to use.
A growler is a glass jug that typically carries a half-gallon of fresh beer. Growlers are filled straight from the tap and sealed with a twist-cap. Once you purchase your initial glass growler, refills cost significantly less. Most breweries will fill growlers from other establishments; however, due to Indiana state law they may place a sticker from the brewery on the glass. Most breweries offer a smaller container, called a bullet, as well. Beer typically stays fresh one week after the fill date.
The only alcohol that is permitted on the bus is beer purchased at the breweries.

You are welcome to bring your own snacks on board. Most breweries are paired with a local restaurant that you can order food from and eat at the brewery. Also, often there are a number of food trucks parked around the breweries. Due to space limitations on the bus, we ask that customers do not bring outside coolers on the bus. There are two coolers available on the bus for your use.

Yes, bottled water is available and is included in the tour price.
Keep in mind that the beers that you will be sampling can be up to three times higher in alcohol by volume domestic beer. We want you to have a good time but if you become too intoxicated to the point of being disruptive to other bus passengers or brewery guests, you will be ejected from the bus and NO refunds will be given. If you get sick on the bus you will be charged up to $150 as a clean up fee.
Yes, during checkout there is an option to select a “non-drinker” ticket. The ticket price is $30 and covers the cost of the tour guide, the whole learning experience, the transportation, the water/cups etc. You are welcome to bring any non-alcoholic drinks on board. We provide the opportunity to learn about craft beer and breweries aside from drinking it and certainly have had people on tours before who don’t drink and still have a great time.
