→ What’s the difference between the Montreal Brewpub Experience and the Montreal Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Craft Beer Tour?
The tours are actually the same! We offer a separate website page for people looking to host a bachelor/bachelorette party, because we can offer them more information about the group experience. Both tours have the same stops, tastings, and information throughout. The only difference is that, with the Rosemont tour, nobody’s getting married the next day!
