"Boat ride was enjoyable and appetizers were tasty. Would recommend for couples or date nights. We loved our evening."

-Carol V (via TripAdvisor)

"My wife and I took two different Brews Cruises this past summer and really enjoyed both. Summer in the PNW is fantastic and we had beautiful warm summer evenings for our cruises. The beers were good, good snacks and great views and scenery to drink beer by. We will definitely be checking out next summers schedule."
