The sprawling beerscape of Houston isn't easy to navigate. If one wants to truly savor the best suds in the city, it requires a charming chaperone with an intricate knowledge of the town and its greatest watering holes, plus a designated driver to keep the hoppy journey hopping. The beer gurus of Fresh Tap Tours escort aficionados from brewery to brewery at a relaxed pace, sharing tales of beer-making and Houston history along the way. Specialized tours target areas such as downtown, Galveston Island, Clear Lake, and Conroe, where tourists gawk like kids in a candied-beer store as they view facilities and meet brewmasters. All tours begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday and last until 3:30 p.m. or 4:30 p.m., ensuring Saturday night gets started right. Every journey also includes a swag bag and light snacks.
