A new Beer Bus service offers tours and transportation to several craft breweries in the West Palm area. Similar services already operate in Tampa and Orlando. The Discover Palm Beaches trade group says there will be 17 breweries operating by the end of this year.
The Damn Good Beer Bus service costs $65, and includes three or four craft breweries, a flight at each, and perhaps a tour of the facility. That strikes me as expensive if you have three or four people involved. Hire a Uber, and you'll be ahead.
I can see this as a home run for bachelor parties, spouse etc activities at trade shows or professional gatherings downtown, though.

Stopped by the Barrel of Monks in Boca Raton last night. Just off Congress at Clint Moore. Liked it, they do Belgian style pretty well.
Flight of four. A single, dobbel, trippel, and quadraphoic. Liked the dobbel, named Terno. Really liked their Terno / dobbel, a pleasant, slightly bitter on the back on the mouth brew. Would definitely fill my growler with some of that. Parade of Souls is their version of the Imperial Stout. Found it hard to enjoy. It was heavy, and maybe I associate it with fireplaces, snow, etc.
Would definitely go back. Their tasting facility was empty around 5.30.and packed at 7. Unlike some Florida places, this was not an impossibly good looking crowd. Very normal looking people discussing bear, several babies in strollers, one three week old infant.
A group of women were celebrating a birthday, several first date looking couples, good breadth of ages.
The Barrel arranges a rotating cast of food trucks which sell food right outside the front door. ChefJeffees makes a wicked burger, good fries, the pulled pork smelled fine, etc. Jeff said that this is a good gig, he's there a few times a month. Sometimes two trucks will work the lot on weekends.
