THE COMPANY


Beerspoke Travel is your destination for beer destinations.
Our beer experiences are crafted to immerse you in the beer culture of the best US beer cities with insider experiences you can only get with us — from full-scale beercations, to long weekend beercations, to city day tours, to…well, really just about anything beer culture-focused. When we’re not planning and running trips and events, we’re sending out tips, festival updates, craft beer recommendations and other fun things to help you crush your craft beer + travel experiences.

Interested in our trips? Here’s what you’ll enjoy:

  • customized visits (with samples at each, of course) to each city’s top breweries, both well-established and up-and-coming

  • brewer meet & greets

  • acclaimed homebrewer meetups (with samples)

  • food and beer pairings with local cicerones

  • beer festivals

  • lesser-experienced pieces of the brewing chain, including malt-houses and yeast-production facilities

  • optional daily tourist excursions

  • and PLENTY of free time to explore on your own, with ample insider recommendations

Meanwhile, at beerspoketravel.com, you'll learn all about the beer culture in the cities and towns you've always wanted to visit, along with a few you'll soon want to visit.

We share all about the breweries, beer bars, beer restaurants, local events and much more, including advice, little-known facts, interviews and even some tidbits that fall just outside the beer lines.

So come aboard, discover the country's best beer scenes, and feel free to leave comments and ask questions along the way. And, when you're ready, take a trip with us and experience everything for yourself!

THE FOUNDERS

Eric Blumenfeld, Co-founder and CEO of Beerspoke Travel, has been passionate about craft beer since the early 2000s, having grown and enhanced his knowledge and immersion along with his closest friends, who all wanted nothing more than to leave the college-era watery macros behind. Following his Bachelors Degree at Duke University, he worked for 15 years in marketing and sales at a number of companies including ESPN and A&E Networks, and attained an MBA in Entrepreneurship and Marketing. Beerspoke Travel was founded to serve an underserved market very close to his heart. Eric’s beer geekdom combined with his intense wanderlust has taken him around the US and the world immersing himself in myriad beer city cultures. He always wondered why there wasn’t a service providing first class vacations to these destinations, and offering amazing behind-the-scenes, insider beer experiences. Well, now there is.

Fred Blumenfeld is Beerspoke Travel's co-founder, as well as the founder and President of Travel Unlimited, which has been operating tours of exceptional quality, both domestic and abroad, since 1973. Fred has served on the Travel Agent Advisory Board for the Sonesta hotel chain and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. He is recognized as a Certified Switzerland Specialist by Switzerland Tourism. Historically more of a wine guy, Fred is finding his beer palate through the exhaustive craft beer drinking "research" he and Eric are forced to undertake in service of the company. That's dedication, folks.

All tours are operated by Travel Unlimited. As a member of the National Tour Association and the American Society of Travel Agents, Travel Unlimited has been operating tours of exceptional quality for over 45 years.

 
 

“I've been to quite a few breweries, so I wasn't expecting to learn as much as I did, and while having so much fun. I went in loving beer and came out loving beer even more.”
