Tipping your tour guide and or driver is always appreciated!  At each stop, If you purchase additional samples or food it would be proper to pay additional gratuity to the brewery staff for those items. We want Montana Brew Bus to be a fantastic experience for EVERYONE involved.

On our public tours, we do not require you to tip our tour staff. But they certainly appreciate it if you find that you enjoyed your time with us! Suggestion is 15% gratuity

For all tours you may pre-pay gratuity at the time of booking by credit card or by cash at the end of your tour.

If I purchase growlers or beer at the breweries is there a place to keep it cold?

Yes, we will have coolers on the bus to keep your beverages cold!

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Advance purchases are highly recommended, as tours often sell out. If you have not purchased your ticket in advance, we may not be able to accommodate walk-ups. You can email us through the contact form on our website if you want to check on availability prior to walking up.

I have a group that would like to book the tour privately what do I do?

Will the Brew bus cancel a tour?

If the weather is unsafe for travel then we reserve the right to cancel a tour. We may cancel if snow makes driving dangerous, email us through our website if you are concerned. We will make every attempt to contact guests if an event is cancelled.   If this happens, we will give you credit towards a future tour or refund your ticket.

If I make a reservation with you, can I get a refund if I am unable to attend or arrive late and the event has begun?

We have a strict no refund policy. Many of our tours are capacity controlled and sell out, so we are unable to give refunds for cancellations or for late-arriving guests.  If you know you will not be able to make your event and it is more than 72 hours in advance, email us through our website and we will do our best to accommodate you on a future date. We will charge you a 10% booking fee.
