Visitors to Marin County and Novato can be forgiven for thinking locals are kidding around when they suggest participation in beer tasting tours. After all, this is the heart of Northern California’s wine country, one of the biggest local and tourist attractions in the area. It’s definitely true, however, that some of North America’s and the world’s top microbreweries have chosen this area as their home. Executive Chargers & Limousine includes private and public brewery tours among the services offered to customers 21 years of age and older. Transportation is by chartered bus or limo, presenting the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular scenery and charming breweries that have earned our recommendation.
Why is a guided tour a superior way to experience the nearby breweries? It’s more fun to share the experience with other people, whether they’re family, friends, or strangers. Our drivers know where the hidden gems are located, such as Belgian ales in Sonoma County and German beer in Napa Valley. You’ll learn more about the difference in brewing from one region to another. ECL drivers always volunteer to be the designated driver, leaving the tour guests free to participate in beer tasting without worrying about its effect.

SAGA OF A BEER TASTING TOUR
Our guests often comment about how enjoyable the wine country beer tours are when they understand the process prior to their arrival at the brewery. Our drivers provide helpful, educational information during the ride. The following highlights briefly describe the adventure.
Once you reach the brewery, your guide will show you the different production units and explain the processing phases for beer. You’ll move on to the sampling room and an assortment of beer samples produced in that unit. California has strict regulations about beer sampling and the total amount per guest. For instance, just 16 ounces can be high-gravity beer. Beer sales to take away from the brewery are limited to 288 ounces per person.
This is a great opportunity to experience the fresh flavors of beer. Breweries usually offer 3 to 6 ounces of each variety produced. Beer on tap dispenses the draft in such a way that the ideal flavor and head accentuate the tasting experience ahead of you. Several of the breweries on our tour list enjoy surprising guests with seasonal or exclusive flavors for sampling that are only available at the brewery.

My group had a wonderful experience with two long distance airport transfers that Executive Charters & Limousine recently provided. The drivers (Josh and Rebecca) did and great job! They are excellent drivers and very pleasant and professional. The office staff was efficient and helpful to work with. Thank you for a great experience!
