Watch the wheels go ’round and ’round from your spot on the Brew Bus. For $60, the bus will take you to tastings at two breweries and a cidery: Bishop Cider's Cidercade, Oak Highlands and Noble Rey. There will also be a snack courtesy of Luck and a commemorative snifter for all your commemorative snifter needs. In between stops, tour guides will educate you on the North Texas brew scene. It's like Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus, but Ms. Frizzle will most likely have a beard, and all of her students will be buzzed.
