Our buses run in a continuous loop along a predetermined route (think a typical city bus) between Atlanta breweries. The major difference is that you only pay $15 for the entire day, not per leg of the route. You can HOP-on/HOP-off as much as you want You can choose to stop at a location or stay on the bus until the next stop. It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure…for BEER!
The earlier in the day you start, the more you get to experience! On Fridays, you should be able to visit 5-6 locations depending on how long you decide to stay at each location. On Saturdays, you could get up to 7-8 and Sundays, you could get to 4-5. The later in the day you start, the less the number of locations you will be able to visit. We recommend you get your wristband as early in the day as possible! If you are adventurous enough to attempt the entire route in one day, tag us on Instagram with a picture of you at each location and there may be a prize for you (@atlbeerbus & #atlbeerbus).
Our Beer Nerds are essentially tour guides while you’re on the bus. Once we get to a location, they’ll HOP off too and make a quick search for any other riders who are ready to move to the next location, then HOP back on the bus. This keeps our buses moving and ensures we arrive at each location every 20-30 minutes.
When the buses stop running they head back home, so make sure you’ve arrived at your final location before the buses stop running (this location could easily be different than where you started). We will also keep you updated on location closing times, so you can plan accordingly.
We provide safe, reliable transportation between Atlanta’s best breweries/cideries/distilleries. For the $15 daily fare, you get HOP-on/HOP-off access on ANY Atlanta Beer Bus. You don’t have to get back on the same bus that dropped you off. While on the bus, our Beer Nerds will entertain and educate you on the stops on our route. From the craft beer novice to the experienced home brewer, we’ll be able to provide you with insights to make your brewery visits more enjoyable.
We like the idea of “Choose Your Own Beer Adventure.” We don’t limit which breweries you get to visit, we don’t dictate how long you can stay at each location, and we get you straight to the beer (skipping the brewery tours). Our Beer Nerds will give you all the information you need to know about the next stop BEFORE you get there, so you know exactly which tap to head to once the bus stops.
Since this is a Choose Your Own Beer Adventure, you can start at any one of our stops. There is a parking lot next to Park Tavern for those riding with a Designated Driver and we stop at the Midtown Marta station for those riding the rails. Once you decide you want to venture to another brewery, HOP on the next Atlanta Beer Bus you see. If this is your first time on the bus that day, we will collect your payment and issue you a wristband good for that day. If you already have a wristband for that day, just show it to the Beer Nerd at the bus and HOP on. You do not need to get off the bus at all the locations, you can stay on until your desired stop. Our Beer Nerds might even get you interested in a location where you didn’t expect to stop!
We have 3 buses running on the route during operating hours, which means you should see an Atlanta Beer Bus every 20-30 minutes. You can ride any of the buses, you are not tied to one bus (although you may find a favorite Driver or Beer Nerd and want to hang with them all day).
The first time you ride our bus on any given day, we will collect your payment and issue you a wristband that’s good for the remainder of that day. We accept all major credit cards and cash (our buses have limited change, so credit card is preferred). Beer Nerds will be walking around each location when the bus arrives selling wristbands, too!
We do not offer pre-ride sales. Our Beer Nerds have the wristbands under Lock & Key, so we won’t know which color wristband to issue you until you arrive at the bus.
Oh no!! We’ll all stop and pour out a little beer for your dead wristband. Unfortunately, lost wristbands cannot be replaced. You will need to buy a new one…it’s worth it.
Sorry, no. For insurance and legal reasons, we cannot allow drinking alcohol on the bus. You are more than welcome to bring closed package alcohol that you purchase at one of our locations, but it must remain sealed while on the bus. Failure to comply with this rule will result in immediate dismissal from the bus and revocation of your wristband. Laws suck.
Sorry, no. The wristbands are color-coded for a specific date and cannot be used for multiple days. The wristbands switch each week, so you will need to get a new one each day you want to ride the Atlanta Beer Bus.
As most of our locations are family-friendly, so are we. All riders must be 18 or older to purchase a wristband and ride alone. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a paying parent or guardian. Children 12 and under are admitted free, with a paying parent or guardian on a one child per paying adult basis. Our full Terms and Conditions can be found here.
Currently, we cannot do charter groups during our normal business hours. If you would like to schedule a group outing on a day that our buses aren’t running, please call 770-696-6080 or email email@example.com.
We’re constantly creating new routes to tie into our existing service so you can experience even more of Atlanta beer. Stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for announcements on our expansion.
