Damn Good Beer Bus launched in April 2017, offering public and private brewery tours throughout Palm Beach County. With a clear cut mission on delivering unique experiences to the beer loving community, our tours were a hit.
It Began How Most Great Ideas Begin – Over a Few Beers
Our founder, Jonathan was first introduced to craft beer at Sweetwater Brewery, while completing an internship in Atlanta. He instantly fell in love with the atmosphere, taste, freshness, culture and local feel – everything that makes breweries so great.
Fast forward several years, he moves back home and the South Florida beer scene is flourishing. He’s been a regular at many local breweries while excitedly awaits all the new ones getting ready to open. Always knowing he wanted to run his own business, while doing something he loved, it was just a matter of time before the right idea came along.
One major advantage of our business is that you can only have a great time! After all, you are brewery hopping with your crew and have all the planning taken care of, with a beer guide that is personable and knowledgeable. Fun will be had.
Learn A Little
We always like to say your tour will be mildly educational. By this we mean that in addition to hearing directly from seasoned brewery representatives, your beer guide is a local enthusiast who knows the history, people, and all kinds of things about our beer scene.
We revolve around having fun and providing you with the best local craft beers. And of course, the safety and well-being of our customers is always in mind. We offer door-to-door transportation and will gladly order a safe ride home from our guests. We ask that as you please enjoy this experience responsibly.
rolling on down the road (safely)
Damn Good Beer Bus now carries passengers to over 25 different breweries, and has long-standing relationships with their operators, ensuring that guests of the tour are provided a welcoming experience and unique insights on their many destinations.
An important mission for us is safety. By picking passengers up and partnering with ride-share services, we maintain that our tours provide the safest possible experience.
We love beer, and more importantly, we love for you to have fun.
We take tremendous pride in nurturing our relationships with staff, customers, and brewery partners, and this is why we believe we’ve been able to continuously move DGBB in the right direction.
Ralph is one of those people that you just can’t not like.
He’s been an integral part of the journey from day one. Since helping to launch DGBB in 2016, Ralph has gained a few new titles over the years: husband and father.
When he isn’t leading a tour, Ralph can be found cheering on his alumni, the Florida Gators, crushing New England IPA’s, throwing weights around at CrossFit, or enjoying family time with his wife, Kristen, and their son, Luca.
He is an avid sneakerhead.
First Craft Beer Love:
Two years ago, a friend of May’s brought her on a DGBB outing and the rest is history. She fell in love with the company, started working as a tour guide, and couldn’t be happier showing off the local scene.
Sushi Chef by day, provider of awesome beer tours by night. May works at the highly coveted sushi restaurant Morimoto’s in the Boca Resort and is actively working on her Cicerone certification.
She once waited 12 hours in line for a beer release at Miami’s J Wakefield Brewing.
First Craft Beer Love:
Dennis is a long-time craft beer enthusiast and got his start with DGBB like May, by experiencing a tour firsthand. He discovered craft beer around 2007 and has not looked back since. His favorite style of brews are juicy IPA’s, although he also enjoys stouts and sours.
When Dennis is not enjoying a cold brew at his favorite pub, you can find him at home being a single dad to his two teenage daughters and German Shepherd dog, Luger. He is looking forward to sharing his passion for beer with all of you.
He has met two US Presidents – George Bush Sr. and Donald Trump (prior to current presidency.)
First Craft Beer Love:
When not leading a tour, he can be found doing a half-assed DIY home improvement project that he swears will be the last one, justifying spending way too much money eating out, or pretending to work on his iced coffee addiction.
The blueprint for Jonathan’s ideal day: Stealing his significant other, Camille, away from her 14 animals for the day, catching a sweat, a hazy boy or three, good people, meaningful conversation, plenty of pup time, and some delicious food.
He’s such a BBQ lover than while on a group vacation in Austin, TX, he woke up at 7am on a Sunday after a night out and proceeded to wait 4 hours for brisket at Franklin’s.
