Kayak Brewery Tours has the ability to set up tours with the quest of the perfect craft beer in mind.  We know the area, we know the brews and would love to pass the knowledge on to you. Let us know what you need to make you and your party feel more comfortable.

Give us a call to find out more or book your adventure online today.


Kayaking + Brew = KaBrew.  Take a kayak trip along the Boardman River in Traverse City and stop along the way at some of the best craft breweries in Northern Michigan and you have what is called a KaBrew!  Join us on a KaBrew adventure any day of the week our start times vary if you can’t find a time that works for you call to make an appointment.


Oddly enough, your Kabrew adventure will start on a bike.  Pedal to the Right Brain Brewery to enjoy your first pint. Head to the Filling Station for your next round.  After the filling station you will continue on your bike to Hull Park where your kayak awaits. Launch the kayak and float down the Boardman River to either The Rare Bird or The Parlor.   Jump back in the kayak to paddle downstream for your last drink at the Kayak Bike & Brew Bar!


Repeat through the summer as necessary!!
