What is San Jose Brew Bike?

San Jose Brew Bike is a pedal powered, 15 passenger cycle that tours downtown San Jose. Our mission is to provide the ultimate brew and bite experience by partnering with some of San Jose’s best local tasting establishments. San Jose Brew Bike is the original and only partybike you want to roll with as we set out to combine our love of exercise, food, drink, and FUN!

Can I drink on the San Jose Brew Bike?

Unfortunately, the City of San Jose does not currently allow alcohol aboard the Brew Bike at this time.

Are there age requirements?

Yes. You must be at least 21 years old if you plan to ride on a brewpub tour. However, private tours may be booked on which the age requirement is 16 years or older if the bike is used for city (non-brewery related) tours. Please call if you have further questions.

Does everyone pedal?

No. There are 12 bicycle seats with backs, but only 10 of these have pedal cranks. 2 of the seats are above the wheels and are not equipped with pedals. There is also a 3-seat back bench, which is designed for those riders who want to relax or who are physically incapable of the rigors of pedaling.

Is there a weight limit?

Yes, each seat can support a maximum weight of 285 pounds.

How fast does the San Jose Brew Bike go?

On average, about 5 mph—however, we may top out at a hair-blowing 7 mph if we really get our crank on!

Is music allowed?

Heck yeah music’s loud… er… allowed! Bring the tunes, and we’ll provide the bumpin’ speakers to play the hits!

Where do we go?

For our Brew and Pub Tours, we have partnered with a bunch of San Jose’s favorite local brew spots! Standard 2 hour tours typically allow us to stop at 3 establishments for approximately 30 minutes at each stop. Our extended 2.5 and 3 hour tours allow for a bit more time at each stop. If you have a private charter, you are welcome go wherever you’d like – just let us know! The tour ends right back where it started- 132 Park Ave. San Jose, CA 95113 (Across the street from Morton’s The Steakhouse).

What if it rains?

Our policy is that we roll rain or shine. We have a canopy over the top of the bike, which will help prevent getting soaked, but even with the canopy you will probably get a few sprinkles on you. We promise a little bit of rain will not stop the party! If you’re unsure, please bring a coat or book a tour for another day.

What are the terms and cancellation policy?

Cancellations:

  • 15+ Days: 100% refund minus 5% transaction fee
  • Less Than 15 Days: 50% refund or rain check good for 6 months, your choice
  • Under 7 days: No refund or rain check.

***IMPORTANT*** If we are not able to book a MINIMUM OF 6 SEATS the bike will not go out, for physical reasons of pedaling the bike. We will contact you if there are less than 6 seats booked for your time slot to try and coordinate a different departure. If we are unable to meet this minimum, we will refund your payment if we are unable to reschedule your reservation.
