How It All Started

“I created Brewery Tours to provide exclusive and unique educational craft beer experiences designed to not only enjoy and celebrate craft beer but to explore and better understand this amazing scene.”

For more than two decades, Glenn J. Smith, the Founder of Brewery Tours, LLC, has been visiting and experiencing small, independent craft breweries around the country. In 2017, he created Brewery Tours – the Ultimate Craft Beer Experience, and launched the York County Ale Trail to show off the amazing York County craft beer scene, which features 31 independent, craft breweries. 

Our craft beer experiences have been recognized nationally, drawing guests from around the country who have rewarded us with a 5-Star Rating and named us one of the Best of the Best Local Tourist Attractions in 2021 and 2022 making us the No. 1 brewery tour in Central Pennsylvania.

In the Fall of 2021, Brewery Tours launched its new tour line: Hanover Brewery Tours featuring the remarkable craft breweries of Snack Town U.S.A. with additional expansions on the horizon.

With today’s booming craft beer industry, Brewery Tours is at the forefront of providing exclusive, educational, and entertaining craft beer experiences. Whether you’re a craft beer aficionado, a novice, or someone who just wants to learn more about craft beer, Brewery Tours is for you. Come join us for the Ultimate Craft Beer Experience!
