The Little Wine Bus- Frequently Asked Questions about our Hudson Valley Wine Tours

The Little BEER Bus Q and A

Do you require a minimum or advanced notice for bookings?

Yes, we require a minimum of 5 passengers to go on a tour, unless it's a custom event. Groups require advance notice. Prices vary with location, selections, and needs.

Where do you pick up from?

We pick up from the entire tri-state area. We also pick up groups from all area Train Stations. Metro North's Hudson Line is the closest to us. Get off at the Beacon Stop.

Will you provide food?

Yes, all tours include a delicious lunch in a choice brewery and amazing snacks all day. We picnic outside, but in the cooler months we go inside the breweries and can enjoy live entertainment. 

Is The Little Beer Bus responsible if we drink too much, hurt ourselves or others, or get hurt on the bus or at a winery?

No we are not. We have each person sign a Liability Release form that we are waived and not liable for any possible injury sustained at all during the entire tour and after you leave our tour. After all, this tour involves alcohol and we are not responsible for how much beer you pay for and consume on your own on at each brewery.

Is there a bathroom on the bus?

Only on the larger 32-55 passenger buses. Don't worry, we definitely make a few stops on the way home.

Can I rent the entire bus tour and day out for me and my friends?

Absolutely. We even decorate the inside of the buses and vans for any party! Bachelorette parties, birthdays, graduations, weddings, engagements & more.

What if i have to cancel my reservation, what is the policy?

We give you 100% cancellation within 2 weeks of large groups and party cancellations.  Loss of your deposit applies if you cancel under two weeks.    

For regular brewery tours, we require 3-day cancellation to receive a full refund.  We do not offer a refund due if you fall under three days (72 hours) due to holding bus seats and food orders in advance. We have a wait list all year around for many of our signature events.

What if I miss the bus?

There is no refund if you miss the bus, but we will wait 15 minutes and call if you don't show up before we leave.

Can we drink Beer on the bus?

Sorry, regulations ensure that all consumption of alcoholic beverages is confined to the breweries.

Is there just "The Little Beer Bus," or are there other vehicles and buses to rent?

OF COURSE! We have Luxury Vans, Escalades, Limousines, Luxury SUV's, Rolls Royce's, Mercedes, Trolley's, School Buses and large 55 Passenger Motor Coaches. We are Certified Travel Agents and Meeting Planners. We can DO ANYTHING! 

Can we bring children?

Yes, but for certain occasions only!  Children are welcome to join us for pre-booked family related tours*, such as, family reunions, family outings, etc.  Breweries are child friendly and offer activities for them. We have custom tours for families which includes things like: feed the animals at the winery farms, apple & pear picking, hayrides, face painting, cookie design, and many more creative and seasonal themed ideas. We can do anything - just make a suggestion. :-) 

*21 and over please for all non-family tours.

Come on...please tell us how fun these tours really are!
