Tour of Beers

The 2019 Tour of Beers is here and we have an incredible list of beers throughout the year including a larger rotational bottle list and a new and improved Tour of Beers app to keep track of your current tour and look over your Tour of Beers history.

The 2019 Tour of Beers begins January 1st and it marks our 33rd year of exploring the world through import and craft beer! This year will feature over 400 choices on our beer list between bottles, cans and draft. The rotating bottle list was extremely popular and has been expanded again this year to present even more breweries to you. A revised and updated Tour of Beers app will be available at the Apple App Store and Google Play to help you keep track of your progress. The trips to our partner breweries were a huge success in 2018! We’re holding drawings again this year.

FEBRUARY- Tourists with 10 beers or more will automatically be entered for a chance to win gift baskets with brewery novelties including assorted items like hats, socks, etc. and a Winking Lizard gift card and trips to Stone in San Diego, Bell’s and Founders in Michigan and Muncie, Indiana for 3 Floyds Dark Lord Day. Drawing will be held on February 15th.
JULY- Tourists with 50 beers or more will be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip to Dogfish Head in Delaware, Chicago for Lagunitas and Revolution or Boston Beer’s Zinzinnati Oktoberfest in Cincinnati. Drawing will be on July 1st.
TOUR FINISHER PARTY- Tourists who reach 100 beers or more will be entered in our final round of drawings that include Stone in San Diego, Lord Hobo in Boston or B. Nektar’s Spring Mead Fest in Michigan. Reach 150 or more beers for 2019 and you’ll be entered for a chance to go to either Duvel in Brussels, Belgium or Weihenstephan in Munich, Germany. Drawing date to be determined.
Contest details and rules can be found on the Tour/Whiskey placemats at your local Winking Lizard Tavern.

We have a new way to sign up for the Tour of Beers this year, as well. When you go to your favorite Winking Lizard Tavern, which will be your HOME store and pay your $20.00 Tour Fee. Your HOME store is where you’ll pay your fee, drink your first beer, get your World Tour Card from and receive your coat. Your server/bartender will give you a 2019 World Tour card.

New Year. New Tour. New Beer!
