"The best part about the company though is arguably that it’s operated by two locals already steeped in this industry. Niels Larsen, the bar manager at Print Works Bistro and former GM at Natty Greene’s, is launching the company with his long-time friend Patrick Sanecki, an assistant professor at GTCC who teaches culinary and hospitality courses. And while the nucleus of their business is in Greensboro, they’re already talking about plans to extend their tours throughout the Triad or for specialty trips out of the region."
With a background in culinary arts and management, Patrick says Tap Hopper Tours is really about hospitality and service.
“What we offer is not just beer. At each location we visit, you will learn their history and background. The beauty of Greensboro is all the breweries are close, so our patrons aren’t on the bus the entire time. They have more time to spend at the facilities.”
"Besides the beer, one of the best parts of the entire experience was the people you meet on the tour. It was awesome to ride along on the bus sipping on beer and getting to know one another. It was also very informative. I had no idea about the process behind brewing; not only did they teach us a lot but they shared everything in a fun way. By the end the entire bus felt like longtime friends."

"Greensboro now has six breweries and a distillery. So, what are we missing? A safe way to visit them all. A way to connect the North, South and midtown, since they aren’t all within walking distance.
Tap Hopper Tours aims to connect the dots. The tours are hosted by two of the most knowledgeable residents in the culinary/hospitality/bar and restaurant industry in this city"

Fun things to do! Craft beer Brewery Tours
ranked as one of the most fun things to do in Greensboro!
"You'll get to see the 120 year old beer cellar in the Natty's basement. You'll meet the owners and brew masters of these places. You'll learn why each place may be close in proximity but vastly different in the approach to craft beverages. You'll hear the background and stories first hand. But best of all at the end of it you'll have 13 new friends!" Sanecki said.
