This Brew Bus Lets Beer Lovers Travel to Long Island Breweries Safely, and in Style!

By Elisha Neubauer

Did you know that there are over 40 breweries located in the Long Island area?

That's 40 breweries to visit, taste, and enjoy. While that may sound like a great time, there's one thing you need to think about before setting off to enjoy these 40 breweries -- safety. How do you get from one to the next safely, without spending a small fortune in cab fees?

In comes LI Brew Bus -- a tour bus company that was launched in 2014 with one specific focus: to provide a way for beer enthusiasts to visit the breweries safely.

The LI Brew Bus is considered to be an educational experience. It is a more than just a means of transportation. It allows you to get from one brewery to the next safely, while learning about the culture of Long Island brewing. "On board the L.I. Brew Bus guests learn about craft beer with their very own Brew Guide, indulge in karaoke, with hundreds of popular and old school songs to choose from, and network with friends on board," explains Michelle Pagano. At many of the breweries, guests can find discounts on tastings, pints, growlers, food, and more.

After two years of operation, the bus company has shuttled thousands of brew lovers to the many breweries across the Long Island area. They have grown in size and expanded their operating times. They have even added private parties and events to their list of available options. "L.I. Brew Bus is not limited to public tours," states Pagano. "We have become the MASTERS of the surprise party!"

LI Brew Bus offers special custom tours, private of course, for many different events. These include bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate events, surprise parties, birthdays, and more. They also organize events for concerts, festivals, and more. The bus provides four HD screens, wifi, and a wireless microphone allowing you to customize the event as you need.

Currently, the Brew Bus runs from 12pm-6pm on Saturdays and Sundays and from 7pm to 11pm on Fridays. Each trip brings guests to four of Long Island's breweries. Tour routes constantly change in an effort to keep up with the rapid expansion of breweries on Long Island. Last year alone saw six brand new breweries launch in the area, paving the way for even more to come next year.

Regardless of whether you are looking to change up your weekend plans, surprise someone for a special day, or just want to give a few new local haunts a whirl, the LI Brew Bus has you covered. Feel secure knowing you can drink without worry as you visit some of the greatest indie breweries Long Island has to offer, while still making it home safely and legally.
