Craft Brewery Tours
Ale Aboard Brewery Tours is Western Massachusetts' FIRST Craft Brewery Tour Bus Company. It is a fun way to visit multiple craft breweries in Florence, Easthampton and Northampton. Each brewery offers a wide variety of samples of their house, seasonal and specialty beers.
Each tour will visit three local breweries. We will spend approximately 1 hour at each location. Feel free to order a pint of your favorite, or get a growler to go and we’ll keep it cold for you on the bus!
The cost is $30 per person. Each bus holds 14 passengers, so invite your friends to come along! All participants must be 21 or older. No exceptions. Participants are responsible for the purchase of their own beer. Ale Aboard does not supply the beer at the brreweries.
Your $30 gets you.......

We will meet at Florence's newest brewery Brew Practitioners . This Building (Circa 1865) was originally one of the support building for the famous Florence Sewing Machine Factory. Feel free to enjoy a pint of our great beer while we assemble the troops and then we load up on our 14 passenger bus for 3 hours of fun.
Our first stop will be a quick 15 minute bus ride to the Historic Mill 180 building in Easthampton where we will see New City Brewery . Be prepared to be blown away by the old world charm of their restored space. Brick abounds and you can only imagine what the huge crane overhead was used for over 100 years ago.
Just a few hundred yards through the parking lot we will travel to the historic Brickyard Building and Abandoned Building Brewery where you will enjoy a pint just as our forefathers did. In an industrial setting surrounded by brownstones and plank wood floors.
Finally, we head back to Brew Practitioners Located in the historic Sewing Building in Florence. Come in and grab another beer, enjoy the outside courtyard in the summer and see our high tech, 3BBL brewing system. You can even order food from the famous "Food Fone" and have it delivered.
