Granite State Growler Tours, the first craft brewery tour bus in New...

Granite State Growler Tours, the first craft brewery tour bus in New Hampshire and a Best of NH 2013 winner chosen by NH magazine, is roaming for foam! Hop on our bus, affectionately named 'Greta the Growler Getta', and visit the best craft breweries on the NH seacoast.

Your four-hour adventure includes exclusive personal tours given by the brewers themselves so you can talk to them one on one. Tastings are included in the ticket price. If you like what you tried, grab a growler and we'll keep it iced down for you. As we roam from tap to tap, our knowledgeable guide will entertain and intrigue you with unique facts and little-known stories about the rich and foamy history of brewing in NH.

With great hops at every stop, let Granite State Growler Tours do the driving while you have all the fun. Meet us for beer every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Are you looking for a private or group tour? Do you want a custom itinerary for your special event? Just give us a call to plan your trip. We can visit over 27 different breweries and distilleries.

The tour was fun and informative, both on the bus and off. The breweries we visited were a lot of fun, and we got to try some really unusual and some not so unusual brews, but they were all delish. Would go again!

Great experience! Mix between large and smaller breweries. You don't feel rushed at all between the stops.

My wife and I did the later afternoon tour. We hit 3 breweries of varying sizes over the span of 4 hours. It never felt rushed and our tour guide threw in some oral history of Portsmouth. I'd do it again.

We went to 4 very different types of breweries in the Portsmouth area. It was great to meet some of the owners and learn more about beer. Our tour guide, Ed was entertaining and fun.

This was my second time with Granite State Growler Tours. They do a great job bringing you to a great variety of breweries and Mark is full of funny interesting stories about the Portsmouth area and beer! Would definitely recommend to any group of beer drinking friends.

This was my third time going and it never disappoints. You learn a lot about the region's history (especially when it comes to beer and brewing) and how these local brewers approach their craft. Of course -- there's also the beer tasting, which will satisfy any beer connoisseur. Warning -- if your idea of good beer is Bud, Coors, or... More

At all three breweries we got the opportunity to talk directly to the brewers and learn the inside story of some of their beers, at the latter... More
