Reston Limousine works with our brewery partners to ensure our customers have the best experience possible on our tours. We cater to clients who want to enjoy the dynamic craft brewery scene in the region and experience the products of artisan brewers who are passionate about what they do.
While we offer weekend public brewery trips, customizing your own brewery tour allows you to:
- Choose the pickup times and locations that are convenient to you
- Select the breweries, distilleries and cideries of your choice
- Retain the vehicle for as long as you desire
Here are some questions to help you get started planning your private brewery tour:
- Which breweries do you want to visit? We partner with DC and Virginia breweries for our public brewery trips but can customize a brewery tour in Maryland as well.
- Where are the local distilleries? In DC, distilleries are all within 5.5 miles of each other confine tastings to Saturdays 1-4 p.m.: Don Ciccio & Figli (Italian-inspired liqueurs), One Eight Distilling (vodka, whiskey and gin), New Columbia Distillers (gin). In Northern Virginia, a visit and tour of local favorite Catoctin Creek Distilling can be combined with visits to nearby breweries such as Corcoran Brewing, Adroit Theory and Belly Love. If you don’t mind a day trip further south, we recommend visiting A. Smith Bowman Distillery, which originally opened in Reston in 1935 and moved to Fredericksburg in 1988.

- How about the cideries? While DC eagerly awaits the opening of Anxo, a Basque-inspired cider bar, Northern Virginia offers several cidery stops, each about an hour’s drive east of DC: Corcoran Vineyards & Cider in Waterford, Wild Hare Hard Cider in Bluemont, Mt. Defiance Cidery & Distillery in Middleburg (small groups only), and Cobbler Mountain Cellars in Delaplane. Just another hour further south, you have the Charlottesville area cideries: Castle Hill Cider, Albemarle Ciderworks, andBold Rock Hard Cider.
- How many people are attending? This will determine the size of vehicle and contributes to the cost of the tour. To determine what type of vehicle you would need, click here to visit our virtual showroom. Keep in mind some of the locations are limited in size and space. For corporate groups with large numbers of attendees, one option may be to travel in separate buses and to different wineries rather than going all at once to the same location.
- How long do you want the tour to be? The number of hours also contributes to the cost – once you have determined which vehicle you would need, you can click here to visit our online Rates page to estimate the cost. The amount of time you have available also helps to determine how many breweries you are able to visit in that time period.
