—For tourists looking to visit some of the best craft beverage businesses in San Luis Obispo County or locals wanting to celebrate a special event or day out, Be Hoppy Tours is sure to provide an unforgettable experience.
“At Be Hoppy Tours, our most popular tours aren’t just about the destinations; they’re about fostering a shared and unforgettable group experience. We believe the journey itself is as important as the places we visit. Our tours are designed to create a lively, interactive, and fun atmosphere where our guests can connect, make memories, and share the joy of discovery. It’s about the laughter, the conversations, and the sense of camaraderie that comes from exploring the craft beverage scene in the company of fellow enthusiasts,” said Susan F. Moody, who owns Be Hoppy Tours alongside friend Teresa DeHart and brother John Giffoni.
Guests can be assured that Be Hoppy Tours will expertly curate tours that fit the preferences of all involved. There are two stand-out, scheduled social tours; visit three breweries with the “Hoppy Hour” on Friday from 3 to 7 p.m., while the Saturday “Sip of SLO” explores the beer, cider and wine scene from noon to 4 p.m. More personalized tours can run every day depending on guest schedules, and in addition, Be Hoppy Tours offers team-building tours, scenic tours, party tours and transportation-only options.
“We are a small business looking to collaborate with local craft beverage companies to create effective joint marketing campaigns that will capture the attention of locals and visitors, promoting our area and supporting our ventures. San Luis Obispo County is a growing craft beverage region with breweries, cideries and wineries and we want to bring SLO into the forefront featuring these diverse, delicious beverages,” Moody said.
Be Hoppy Tours was previously known as Hop On Beer Tours, which has been in operation since 2014. When the business went up for sale, the current owners decided to purchase and rebrand in 2022. Moody and DeHart started their friendship over 20 years ago while working in Sacramento, with Moody noting that “even after we were no longer living in the same geographical area, we have always made it a priority to travel together; our joint constants being fun, friendship and wine!”
Be Hoppy Tours has memorable tours for all who plan to explore the award-winning and delicious craft beverages in SLO County.
