Brewery Tour | Group Events

Are you looking to book a group event? Whether it’s corporate team building, a birthday party, or just a fun day out with friends; a brewery tour could be the perfect event!

We offer tour packages that depart from Toronto and can take you to any area you like. Some recommended destinations are: Niagara, Waterloo, Prince Edward County, Muskoka, and Toronto.

Below is a sample of one of our favourite tours. Remember, these can be customized however you like and we can stop at additional restaurants, wineries, distilleries, or even regional attractions. Let us help you create the perfect event.


Embark on a journey to Elora Brewing in the town of Elora, Block 3 in St. Jacobs, and West Avenue Cider or Brothers Brewing.

 

Elora Brewing

Located in downtown Elora - This will be our first stop of the trip. Along with your flight of beer, we’d recommend enjoying lunch here with their farm-to-table menu, followed by a little exploring of the town!

Along with their amazing flagship beers (such as Elora Borealis - Citra Pale Ale), they are sure to always have 2-3 fun small batch brews.


Block3 Brewing

Located in St Jacobs Village -

When thinking of St. Jacobs most of our minds would be directed straight to the farmers market and the menonite population; although the huge collection of mug club members goes to show that St. Jacobs is very much a beer town. 

At the forefront of the Ontario craft beer industry trends is Block 3 and they're brewing some incredible barrel aged farmhouse ales and kettle sours. Opening in 2013, prior to the boom in Ontario Craft Beer, Block 3 does it all, and most importantly, does it well. 


Brothers Brewing

Located in downtown Guelph - There’s a cosy nostalgia that permeates the space. Subtly hidden in the layout of the room is a respectful nod to the building’s storied past. Brothers is a brewery, a bar, a bottle shop, and a communal hub. We have 12 taps of house brewed craft beer, we host communal workshops, food pop-ups, and local bands and entertainment. If you’re downtown Guelph looking for a pint and a good time, look no further.


WEST AVENUE CIDER

A beautiful orchard that is home to West Avenue, just outside of Hamilton. We highly recommend this stop as a change to all the beer tasting. Included with your cider flight, is a dessert ice cider and cheese plates.

This is some of the finest cider made in the country and definitely not what you’re used to!



REVIEWS

Emma Isai - 5/5

I did this tour with a group of friends and we had a great time. We went to three breweries - Elora, Brother's Brewing and Block3 - all very different but cool vibes. We got a flight at each one, so it was nice to try 4 types of beer. We bought beers at each location to take home and continue the sampling later.

Paul and Sam were on time, friendly, easy going, great at communicating before the event, and also knowledgeable about beers and beer trends. They provided water and snacks on the bus. The whole day went smoothly and was really fun…

Harp Athwal - 5/5

From planning to execution of the day, Sam and Paul were fantastic. Great day trip from Toronto to show friends from out of town breweries in Elora, St. Jacobs, and West Avenue Cider in Freelton!

Nilson Peixoto - 5/5

Went on a beer tour with Small Batch Dispatch this weekend. Visited three breweries (in Elora, St Jacobs and Guelph). Although we were a small group (13 of us) we had a great time, tasted great brews, and experienced something different from my city slicker routine. Sam and Paul (our tour guides) were great. They talked when they needed to inform us of something germane to the tour and otherwise just let things flow as they may. We kept to the tour schedule and were promptly picked up when we were supposed to.
I'd do this again!
