We Do Beer Tours
Los Angeles is brewing great beer, but it’s also 500 square miles… That’s where we come in.
LA Beer Hop does beer and brewery tours of Los Angeles, Orange County, and Long Beach. Exploring locations all over LA, we take you straight to all of the greatest brews this city has on tap. We offer public and private tours including DTLA, South Bay, and Long Beach. A perfect answer to what to do in Los Angeles, each tour features three breweries, where you will enjoy a guided beer tasting of all varieties of locally brewed craft beer. At least one destination per trip will offer a walkthrough of the brewing process so you can can become familiar with how beer goes from grain to glass.
A Little History
The Los Angeles beer scene has been slowly and quietly growing for many years, cultivating new breweries, beers and bars. In that time, the beer community that has evolved has reached a quality that rivals any other beer town.
Los Angeles is now home to many award-winning beers, nationally acclaimed beer bars, and a whole culture of real beer craftsmen. LA Beer Hop was started by Hal & Cindy Mooney (husband & wife, both Certified Cicerones®) because of a passion for craft beer and a love of public transportation.
LA Beer Hop is here to take you all over Los Angeles to the most fun places in the city with some of the best beers in the world. Look at us as a tour guide, designated driver, and beer educator all in one.
