Yes, some breweries offer specials and discounts for Music City Brew Hop riders. Ask your trolley conductor or anyone working at the specific brewery you visit to find out the current offerings.




How far in advance should we book?


That’s up to you! While we occasionally sell-out, our beer trolley tours are often a great last-minute option. No need for complicated coordination or strict schedules, you simply buy the ticket for the date you'd like to ride and then hop on. If you are coming to Nashville or celebrating locally with a crew, advanced ticket purchasing is suggested for large groups to ensure spots are available for everyone. This fun transportation option is less expensive, less hassle and more fun than a rideshare or picking a designated driver.




Can I keep items on the trolley while I’m in a brewery?


No, the trolley is a public vehicle with no safe storage capacity. You'll need to take all your belongings with you each time you hop on and off.




What happens if there's bad weather the day of my ticket?


Music City Brew Hop is in operation rain or shine. Our trolley is equipped with all-weather amenities to ensure your day of fun doesn't get rained out. The trolley has heat for cool days and the option for an open-air experience in the Nashville sunshine.
