Brewhop Trolley Tour- Longmont, CO

IMG_5394

I’ve been hearing so much buzz about a trolley that drives you around Longmont, Colorado and takes you to the different breweries and distilleries. I knew I had to give it a try. I picked a free Sunday and  decided to head up to Longmont to try the Brewhop Trolley for myself! I love supporting local businesses and if you love local breweries, this is the tour for you! I’m sharing all the different breweries we hopped off to see and all the great perks of taking the Brewhop Trolley to see them all. Time to get our hops on!

Stop 1: Wibby Brewing

When booking the Brewhop Trolley, I knew I wanted to start at a brewery that had ample parking so that we could leave our car there while we rode the trolley. We parked and headed inside to the first brewery, Wibby Brewing.

This was my favorite brewery that we went to all day. I loved the colors in their branding and their Lightshine Raddler is my favorite. If you love sweet beer, they brew this beer with raspberries and lemonade! It is so good.

We decided to get a flight here to try a few different beers and used our Crazy Good Craft Passport to get a BOGO flight. Before you go on the Brewhop Trolley tour, make sure to download the Free Craft Beverage Pass. Longmont breweries, distilleries, and cideries offer some great deals on the Crazy Good Craft passport. There are over 15 offers in the passport, such as free tastings, BOGO pints, and even BOGO cocktails. Here’s how it works: sign-up for your Craft Passport here. Your Craft Pass will be delivered via text and email, no app necessary! Present the offers on your phone to obtain the code and redeem your discounts, easy!

After our BOGO flight at Wibby, we hopped onto the Brewhop Trolley that picked us up on time! They have a great schedule on their website, I recommend printing it out so that you know how long you have at each stop and when you need to close out your tab to make it back onto the trolley.

Stop 2: Longs Peak Pub & Taphouse

After a short trolley ride, we landed at our second stop. Longs Peak has a great variety of drinks if anyone you’re with isn’t a fan of just beer. We had bottomless mimosas here and they were delicious. Not only are the drinks great but the staff is incredibly friendly! One thing to note here is that Longs Peak is CASH ONLY. Make sure to bring cash! If you forget, they have an ATM onsite with a $1 charge.

Although we didn’t eat here this time, it’s definitely on my list of places to eat next time I’m in Longmont. Everything looked and smelled delicious!

We hopped back on the trolley onto our next stop!

Stop 3: St. Vrain Cidery

I am a huge cider fan so I was most looking forward to St. Vrain Cidery. I decided on a flight because I wanted to try as many ciders as I could. If you do order a full size cider, they encourage mixing different ciders. I love this!! It’s such a creative way to try mixing a cherry cider with an apple or strawberry cider.

The flight was delicious. I will definitely be back! Right down the alley from St. Vrain Cidery is Longtucky Spirits so we were able to walk nextdoor for Longtucky without getting on the trolley.

Stop 4: Longtucky Spirits

Longtucky Spirits is a community-focused Micro-Distillery nestled in the beautiful downtown Longmont. Their menu is creative and incredibly unique. From a delicious hard apple cider to a moscow mule, they have something for everyone here. In addition to their delicious cocktails, their space is incredible. The wood tables and chairs make it cozy while still modern and picturesque.

After our delicious cocktails at Longtucky, we hopped back onto the trolley for our next stop!

Stop 5: Grossen Bart Brewery

Grossen Bart Brewery is owned by a Minnesota native! Right when we walked in we saw all of the SKOL and Viking signs hanging on the walls. If you didn’t know, I am originally from Chicago but have lived in Minnesota for the past 7 years before I moved to Denver. So, this brewery felt like home! It was also filled with Minnesotans watching the Vikings play. We tried a flight of their beers and played a few of the board games that they offered. I love when breweries offer games. It gets everyone off their phones and involved in the game and conversation.

Back onto the trolley we went for one more stop! I was so impressed by how on time the trolley was, we never waited for it to pick us up. We always walked outside a few minutes before it was scheduled to arrive and it was always pulling in on time.

Stop 6: Oskar Blues Brewery – Tasty Weasel Taproom

Oskar Blues Brewery was our last stop and definitely the busiest. They had live music and everyone was dancing along to the great tunes. They have a large patio and if it wasn’t so cold I would have sat outside because their patio was spacious and you could still hear the music. Another great option for those who don’t love beer, Oskar Blues offers Wild Basin Hard Seltzer. I tried the raspberry flavor and it was delicious.

After we wrapped up our drinks at Oskar Blues, we hopped onto the trolley one more time. The Brewhop Trolley dropped us back off at Wibby where our car was parked.

If you’re looking for somewhere to bring an out of town guest beer lover, look no further. We brought our out of town friend on this Brewhop Trolley tour with us and she LOVED it! It’s such a great way to get out and see a lot of different breweries without driving. Make sure you purchase your tickets for the Brewhop Trolley on their website, $20 on Saturday and $15 on Sunday. It’s well worth it, you would spend a lot more on a ride share service to hop around all the different breweries in Longmont. Head to their website, buy your ticket, and get your hops on! And don’t forget to download the Crazy Good Craft passport. There are over 15 offers in the passport, such as free tastings, BOGO pints, and even BOGO cocktails.

Please do not drink and drive, we had a designated driver that drove us home after the trolley dropped us back off at Wibby. Drink responsibly.
