We had an incredible time tasting and seeing the best of St Louis! We have made great family memories and very highly recommended the BBQ and brews tour. We are actually blown away, we had sooo much fun. There was something for everyone. The brisket was to die for. Our faces hurt from smiling. Let's go again-- haha! :D


Wayne was amazing, we so loved our tour and so loved the food! We highly recommended you won’t be disappointed.

Wayne was awesome from first point of contact to the very end! My son was visiting from California and my niece from Texas both foodies .. He is great at making us all feel comfortable, conversations were awesome, lots of laughs and overall great experience! Food places were amazing the brew places were super fun .


Guys trip to stl was made great by Wayne! Knew exactly what we needed and wanted- made the trip fun and super knowledgeable about everything we did for our trip. Totally worth the money and company- a must if ur visiting


We had a great time in St. Louis and took the barbecue and brewery tour with the best guide, Wane! He took us to well-known barbecue joints and breweries not to miss in St. Louis. We highly recommend this tour, and especially take it with knowledgeable Wane, who made it a highlight of our trip!


Wayne’s tour was fantastic! From the initial planning call through drop off everything was well-planned and organized. We really liked that the tour was catered to the kinds of beer we like and places we haven’t tried before. We hadn’t been to 4 Hands before and it was awesome. Transportation was clean and comfortable (his Tesla is super roomy). Waters and popcorn along the way were nice. Wayne takes pics along the way and sent them to us afterwards. Didn’t expect that, but pretty cool to have. Wayne also has tons of knowledge of the places, owners, and sites along the way. If you are looking for a worry-free day of barbecue and beer, this is the tour! We just might do this again next time we meet friends in St. Louis before a Cardinals game.
