Offering much more than your typical pub crawl, Taste Virginia Tours guides beer enthusiasts through each brewery’s offerings, allowing time to savor every last drop. Tour guides also give a brief overview of beer making, styles, tasting, and pairing. Plus, they will provide a behind-the-scenes look at each brewery they visit (when available).
They offer four different beer tours in the area:

Another great way to enjoy craft beers in Virginia Beach is to sign up for one of the breweries individual tours. Most breweries offer a free tour with tasting at the end to introduce their beer to visitors and provide information about their business and their beer-making process.
