Have a group of 8-15?
Book a Private Tour on Betty Jane.
Q: What does a private tour include?
A private tour includes a 4 hour drive around scenic Santa Cruz on our beautifully restored, unique 1989 school bus, 'Betty Jane', a pint for each passenger at each of the 3 breweries we choose to stop at, tours with the brewmasters, beer history, music on-board and many unforgettable memories! Passengers are allowed to bring their own beer tasters and snacks on the bus to enjoy during our ride. Complimentary pick-up and drop-off for your group offered at local* private residences. On-board water and chips are free to passengers as well.
*Local complimentary pick-ups include: Santa Cruz, Live Oak, Soquel, Capitola, Aptos, Felton,
and Scotts Valley
Q: How many passengers do I need for a private tour?
You need a minimum of 8 passengers, and a maximum of 15 (the bus capacity). Searching for something more intimate? Check out Slowboy
Q: How much does it cost?
The Brew Cruz is $75 per person, and includes all of the above! The cost does not vary with more/less passengers.
Q: What can I bring onboard?
Hard Alcohol is not allowed on the bus, but you may bring your own beer/wine/snacks and cooler to enjoy while we're cruising. Having cash on-hand to tip your driver and beertenders is a great idea too! There are extra cups, a cooler, and Goldfish of the snacking variety for you onboard as well. We also recommend bringing a refillable water container to stay hydrated throughout the day.
No bad attitudes or vibes allowed!
While we would love nothing more than to 'cruz freely in the big bus with you, we are unfortunately not offering Private Brewery Tours at this time.
