Winter Tours!

Gear up and come enjoy some of the great beer and wine that downtown Traverse City has to offer!

Every Saturday, starting January 7th thru February 25th or by appointment for large groups, spend your Saturday mornings on a snowshoe, bike & brew outing or afternoons on an all bike and brew adventure. Both unique tours will include a guided adventure through town and trails to 2-3 of Traverse City’s wonderful breweries and Tasting Rooms as well as a complementary swag bag and hand warmers.

Tickets are $59 per person. Tours will only be canceled due to extreme weather conditions such as lightning, high winds and heavy snowstorm conditions, so it is important to dress appropriately to do these activities with the snow season!

MORNING TOUR

For our morning tours…..we will start off our day at the Kayak Bike & Brew lounge located on 436 W. Front St, where guests will meet up and check-in with your guide. Check-in will begin approximately 30 minutes before our departure time, giving you plenty of time to gear up and enjoy a beverage before we start our adventure.

The first leg of the adventure is a 15 minute bike ride through town and into the Grand Traverse Commons where we will arrive at our first stop, Left Foot Charley Barrel Room.
