Indianapolis Brewery Tours

Let Top Shelf Tours show off central Indiana’s fabulous craft breweries! We have unique Indianapolis Brewery Tours ranging from the southside to downtown. Get the details for each specific tour below and book your tour today!

We’re going to spend between 35-45 minutes at each brewery to allow you to not feel rushed at each stop. We want you to be able to sit back and enjoy your time at each location, then buy a pint of your favorites and refill your growlers while you’re there.

Our downtown pick up spot is Sun King Brewery on College Avenue. If you have a large group and are close to downtown, please contact us about an alternate pickup point.

We do need to have at least six people signed up on a tour to make them fun, worthwhile, and viable.

NOTES:
Each brewery makes their own decision on if they give samples and how many samples to give each person. We are not affiliated with the breweries, and cannot promise what they will give anyone. However, when the craft brewery scene was first starting in Indianapolis, breweries were a lot freer with samples than they are now for some reason. You can always ask the bartenders if you can try any beers that they are selling, as they do want you to buy a pint or a growler.
Also, please note that the “tour” aspect of the brewery tour is that we’re going to different breweries in the area, and not necessarily a tour of each brewery’s back room. We try to make your time on the bus as fun as possible and to give you a memorable experience while you’re with us!
