My girlfriend and I recently joined Bon Beer Voyage for a beer safari weekend to Tampa, FL. We had a great time. Mike and Ruth put together a fantastic itinerary for this trip that included private brewery tours, a guided walking tour of Ybor City, a stop at the sponge docks of Tarpon Springs and wonderful beer and food pairing dinners. The accommodations were top notch and the bonding with the other safari members over beers in the hotel lobby after a long day of touring, drinking and eating was definitely a highlight of our weekend. Some of the folks we met on this tour had also been on the Bon Beer Voyage Belgium beer vacation and they raved about the experience all weekend long. Mike and Ruth are not only extremely knowledgeable about the beers we sampled and the places we visited, they are both genuinely nice people. They were extremely gracious and approachable and more than happy to share with us their vast experiences in traveling for beer. Both my girlfriend and I felt we definitely got our money’s worth on this trip. We can’t wait to go on another of Bon Beer Voyage’s safari weekends. St. Augustine, here we come.
