A fun, new way to experience Central Florida's breweries is set to launch August 3 with Hop On! Central Florida Brewery Tours.

The bus tour will focus on downtown Orlando breweries, with future plans to include Sanford, Winter Garden, and other areas.



The 14-passenger bus will depart from the Broken Cauldron Taproom at 1012 W. Church St. and visit nearby breweries on a four-hour excursion. During the ride, guests can enjoy trivia and live-streamed sports games. Tour guides will discuss each brewery's history and what's on tap before arriving at each stop, where guests will be able to enjoy the brews for 45 minutes to an hour.

With 212 breweries, Florida comes in at No. 9 out of the top 10 states for number of craft breweries. Central Florida is "outpacing Tampa, but there's really no transportation that will take you from brewery to brewery here. A lot of people expect that type of thing to exist here and it didn't," founder Kevin Jones said to the Orlando Business Journal.



Tickets start at $35 for the four-hour tour depending on what people order at the bar, according to the Orlando Business Journal. $85 signature tours that go behind the scenes of the breweries are also an option.

For more information or to sign-up for the tour, email info@hopon.tours.
