“Rogue Valley On Tap” Brewery Tours

$70/person, must be 21+

Indigo Creek’s brewery tours leave from Ashland, Oregon Thursday through Sunday. This is a tour for the craft beer lover. In a state known for its sheer volume of breweries, Southern Oregon is taking the beer industry by storm and there is no better place to beer tasting flights at breweryvisit incredible nano and micro breweries than here in the Rogue Valley.

During our tour, we visit four breweries in five hours. These are breweries that are off the beaten path and full of character. We’ll meet the brewers, taste their beers, and enjoy a small bite during the process. Although each brewery is different, one common theme rings true at each location: their passion for delivering high quality and sophisticated ales is undeniable.

Indigo Creek Outfitters has developed strong relationships with the various breweries that are visited on the tour. Because of this, our customers are treated to a personalized experience at many of the stops. You can expect to meet the owners and brewers at most of the breweries and to have a chance to chat with them and learn their story. Our brewery tours are truly one-of-a-kind in the level of attention our customers are given and the amount of brewing and beer education that can be gained from the experience.

Sampling the different beers is always fun, but meeting the brewers/owners and getting a tour of each facility made the trip interesting and unique.
