The 2018 Tour of Beers is here and we have an incredible list of beers throughout the year including a larger rotational bottle list, a new improved Tour of Beers app to keep track of your current tour and look over your Tour of Beers history and this year we’ll hold drawings for trips to some of our favorite breweries and beer festivals.



- $20.00 Entry Fee (includes wallet card and electronic Tour card).
- You get credit for tour beers at any Winking Lizard Tavern location. Tour credits are also available at Lizardville Beer Store and Whiskey Bars for draft beers only.
- The store where you sign up is considered your "home store". Your name will be kept on the Tour Board at this location. You must drink your last Tour beer at your "home store" to receive your Tour coat.
- Keep track on the wallet card, online or by using our smart phone app!
- Your beers must be on a separate check in order to be assigned to your card for credit. For example, spouses that are both on the tour will be presented with 2 separate checks.
- If you drink a Tour beer at a Winking Lizard and then go to another Winking Lizard to drink Tour beers, there must be a 2 hour gap to see credits for the beers you drank at the first Winking Lizard (our systems take approximately 2 hours to update).
- If you do not want the Tour coat, Winking Lizard will donate $50 to Coats for Kids.
- Tourists are only required to drink 100 out of over 200 beers available between our bottled beer and draft beer selections to receive your Tour of Beers jacket and a $20.00 Winking Lizard Gift Card. 100 beers also gets you an invite to the Tour of Beers Finishers Party at the end of the year.
