Founder Jonathan Breines turned his love for the craft beer industry into an enterprise in 2017, when he decided to start Damn Good Beer Bus. His goal was to let his customers have fun while learning something about beer and breweries responsibly and safely.

Damn Good Beer Bus offers all-inclusive tours that come with a dedicated driver/beer guide, bottled water, snacks, cooler, and koozies. The tour includes three breweries that will last for several hours in total. A brewery representative will take customers on a behind-the-scenes tour at one of the stops. Damn Good Beer Bus's beer bus is also available as an hourly rental. Here, the bus will act as a brewery taxi for either a daytime or evening event.

Why You May Want To Start a Damn Good Beer Bus Franchise

A Damn Good Beer Bus franchisee ideally enjoys the nuances of hospitality and is knowledgeable about beer in general. Franchisees should also value safety, have a good work ethic, determination, and a love of new opportunities. Having craft brewery experience isn't necessary, but some business experience may be highly beneficial. 

A Damn Good Beer Bus franchise may offer a predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that could struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive industry. It may also be an enjoyable way to enter the craft beer industry without brewing or selling beer.

You should also expect to maintain sobriety on the job and adhere to strict safety standards, as you'll be the "designated driver" for guests.

To be part of the Damn Good Beer Bus team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising fees and royalty fees.
