Feel free to give us a call or email us with any questions about our tours, tastings or events. We’re always happy to talk about beer and travel!
Bon Beer Virtual Tastings are the casual, fun and unique alternative to overplayed online wine tastings and “quarantini” happy hours. Our virtual beer tasting events range from relaxed, interactive, entertaining tastings of common beer styles, to more involved guided pairing events, i.e. beer and cheese or beer and chocolate pairing.
Each tasting event can be tailored to make sure the level of discussion and information offered is of interest and entertaining to all participants. Our tastings are interactive, allowing attendees to ask questions and share their thoughts on the beers they chose for each particular style. We discuss interesting stories about the beers, how to serve, taste & enjoy different styles of beer, what types of flavors one might experience and/or what might pair well with a particular beer and we even add in a bit of trivia and prizes. We present our beer tastings in a relaxed, entertaining fashion. Beer tasting is interesting, sure, but it should be fun as well!
We also offer beer and cheese pairing as well as beer and chocolate pairing options for our virtual tastings.
Our typical Virtual Tastings last about 1-1 ½ hours, but timing for private groups can be adjusted to meet the specific parameters of your particular meeting or event. Your hosts, Ruth Berman and Mike Arra, the co-founders of Bon Beer Voyage, have been teaching beer tasting and sharing the fun and entertaining aspects of craft beer for years. They now offer their online events to groups of all sizes as fundraisers, virtual happy hours, virtual trade show events, birthday parties or just a chance for companies of all sizes to virtually take their clients out for drinks!
We run our events via Zoom or your preferred platform. Typically, once you register an email will be sent to the email address of the registration with info on the beers they should purchase/acquire for the tasting. A few days prior to the tasting, a link to the Zoom event will be sent out, along with optional tasting notes which may be printed out to use during class and/or kept for reference. Everyone logs in at the pre-set time and the tasting fun begins!

Microsoft Finance Rotation Program had a fantastic time tasting beer and chocolate with Ruth and Mike for our program graduation. They were responsive and easy to work with during the planning process and the actual event was so much fun. They are very knowledgeable and do a great job keeping things interesting and keeping everyone engaged during the event. We have already booked another event with them!
It was a pleasure working with Ruth and Mike! Their beer knowledge is matched by their hosting skills. I was skeptical about a virtual beer tasting at first, but now I’d gladly take part in another. And I’d love to take one of their beer tours!
Our team had a great night with Tara and Bon Beer Voyage virtual beer & chocolate tasting. Tara was knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining. Everyone loved the event and we couldn’t have asked for a better “holiday party” given the times. I’d love to go on one of BeerBonVoyage’s trips one day.
Here’s our linkedIn post about the event:
We loved you two – so nice how you both play off of each other and interact!
Ruth and Mike entertained us, shared their amazing knowledge and created a very fun experience for our team!!!
Look forward to one of the Europe tasting tours with you both!
Thanks from the Netwoven Team!
In these times of Covid we are searching for ways to still entertain out customers. We organized 2 virtual Oktoberfest events with Bon Beer Voyage and they really hit it out of the park. The hosts were engaging, knowledgeable and fun. We will definitely consider Bon Beer Voyage for future events, both virtual and in person
Bon Beer Voyage is the perfect addition to your team building exercise. It was great. thank you.
Super fun event. Bon Beer Voyage was great to work with!
Mike and Ruth made everyone feel comfortable and were knowledgeable and entertaining.
This fundraising event raised money for my campaign and was fun for everyone. It was interactive and kept everyone’s attention. There were attendees at all knowledge levels, from novice to expert, and we all learned something from the class. Highly recommended!
Such a great event and loved having a virtual option in order to gift experiences during the pandemic. Ruth and Mike are so knowledgeable and all the guests had a good. Would definitely do this again for another event!
This was a lot of fun. Great to try new beers and pairing with cheeses. Thanks for doing this
It was a great event. You made it fun and informative. The pairing of the beers and cheese were perfect. Never would have thought of those. Thanks for a fun time.
