A Better Choose Your Own Beer Adventure Coming Soon!
Coming in 2019, the Atlanta Beer Bus will be making some changes to enhance your Atlanta Brewery experience.
Scheduled Routes (Coming Summer 2019)- No more texting for ETAs or wondering if you have time for another drink. On Fridays and Sundays, our continuous loop routes will have set departure schedules, which you can find here. Now you’ll know when to meet the bus outside for your ride to the next location and when the next bus will be leaving in case you’re not ready to leave.
Wait, but what about Saturdays??
Semi-Private Tours (Starting 1/1/2019)- Do you have a group of friends that want to ride the Atlanta Beer Bus, but not large enough to fill a bus? We’ve created FIVE specialized tours running each Saturday for groups of 2 to 14. Each starts at a different times and visits different locations, so your group can choose the route that works best. Plus, each semi-private charter includes a drink at each stop, an Atlanta Beer Bus coozie, and bottled water. These packages last 4 hours and visit 3 breweries each (not including your starting/ending point). Pricing and routes can be found here.
Early Bird Specials- If you’re a planner and like to book outings in advance, for 2019 dates, you will get a $5 discount on Friday/Sunday routes. Just order your passes at least one day in advance and you’ll get the lower rate. Don’t worry, we’ll still have walk-up passes for those who like to live on the edge.
Early Bird Pricing:
Friday – $10
Sunday – $15
We’ll also still have private charters for birthdays, corporate outings, and bachelor(ette) celebrations. There is a 4-hour minimum and prices include rental and taxes (plus gratuity for a job well done).
-Luxury shuttle bus (seats 14) for $150/hr
-Standard shuttle bus (seats 14, 4 standing) for $150/hr
-Luxury mini coach bus (seats 35) for $200/hr
-Luxury coach bus (seats 96) for $275/hr
How do I ride the Atlanta Beer Bus?
How do I buy passes?
You can find the different pass options on the Buy Now tab of our website. There is a $5 discount for buying passes online at least 1 day in advance. No code is necessary, Prices automatically go up after midnight.
How do I get my passes once I’ve bought them online?
After you make your purchase, your name will be added to our reservation list. For the HOP-on/HOP-off routes, we will issue your wristbands when you board the bus for the first time. For the semi-private tours, we ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes in advance and we will issue your wristbands at that time.
What’s included for the price?
We provide safe, reliable transportation between Atlanta’s best breweries/cideries/distilleries. For Fridays and Sundays, 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.
For semi-private charters, we also include a drink at each stop, bottled water, and an Atlanta Beer Bus coozie.
How do I know when the bus will arrive at each location?
Our buses run in a continuous loop, which means you should see an Atlanta Beer Bus every 40-45 minutes. To find out when the next bus should arrive to your location, you can text your location to our Dispatcher at 770-696-6080 for a bus ETA. Space is first come, first served and buses will depart promptly at the designated time. Please close your tabs and allow yourself ample time to get on the bus.
Can I pre-purchase my wristband?
Yes! Please click the Buy Now tab above and select the date and number of riders you would like to purchase. We recommend that you pre-purchase your wristbands and offer a discount for those that do.
What if I lose my wristband?
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. The early purchase discount will not apply to replacement wristbands.
How many passengers do your buses hold?
We have three buses that seat 14 passengers, with handrails for a few standing passengers. Space on the buses is first come, first served. If you have a large group, you may want to reserve a bus for yourselves. We do offer private shuttles so your group can stay together for the day. This will require a signed agreement at least one week prior to the ride date and a deposit at the time of signing. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Can I drink my beer on the Atlanta Beer Bus?
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.
Can my pet ride with me on the Atlanta Beer Bus?
Sorry, no. Being in a confined space, we cannot guarantee the temperament of animals or the allergies of other riders. The only exception is fully-certified Service Animals.
What are the food options while on the Atlanta Beer Bus?
Although the Atlanta Beer Bus itself does not have food options, Most breweries have food vendors on Saturdays. On Sundays, many of our stops have full restaurants. A few will have food on Fridays. The schedules vary, so please check with your Beer Nerds when you get on the bus.
Are there age restrictions for 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
Can I reserve the Atlanta Beer Bus for me and my friends?
Yes! We do offer private charters for groups up to 96 guests. Please email email@example.com for more information and pricing on charters and include: the date of your event, number of guests, and requested number of brewery stops. Charters have a duration minimum of 4 hours.
What about all the other delicious breweries in Atlanta?
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.
Is there an app to track the buses or provide other amazing information from Atlanta Beer Bus?
Coming Soon!!! In the meantime, you can text your location to our Dispatcher at 770-696-6080 for a bus ETA.
