At BREWVANA we know that you want to experience Portland’s local craft beer scene. In order to do that you need the insiders view. The problem is, you are not sure how to find the best breweries to go to. Which could make you feel overwhelmed. We believe that everyone deserves to experience the greatness of Portland craft beer. After all, we are Beer City USA.
We understand how it feels to be in a town with so many breweries and too little time to explore them. Which is why we have spent the last 6 years building tight relationships with the best brewers and breweries in Portland. We are honored to have 5 star reviews on both trip advisor and yelp. We’ve also been featured on Start-Up TV and the Travel Channel for creating unique beer tour experiences.

BREWVANA’s mission is to celebrate craft beer!
It is our goal to promote the history and culture of the craft brewing community while providing guests with an amazing experience and VIP access to the brewing community. Guests enjoy an amazing day experiencing craft beer with every detail taken care of, every step of the way. Fun and knowledgeable tour guides provide a memorable experience for guests, showcasing why Portland has become the best beer city in the world! We work WITH the breweries to showcase their beers in ways that highlight the brewery’s vision, being considerate of visiting times, and making arrangements in advance so that visits are well organized and a win win situation for everyone involved. Just as there is a beer in Portland to satisfy everyone’s tastes, BREWVANA offers a variety of public tours to fit into the schedules, budgets, and preferences of tourists and locals alike as well as customized private tours that will make beer tour dreams a reality.

Owner & Founder
Our hero, and she didn’t even make us say that. Ashley Rose Salvitti is a big fan of strong, smooth beers, but that doesn’t mean she’s picky. Her love of all things craft brewing is the reason BREWVANA exists today.
Marketing & Communications Manager
Lee has a knack for baking the best brownies you’ll ever eat & drove across the country to join our team. She’s a food & craft beer enthusiast who insists that there’s always room for dessert (beer of course)!
Tour Sales Coordinator
Alex was born and raised in Oregon, which gave him a lasting appreciation of Oregon Craft Beer. If he’s not at the bar, you can probably find him tracking down the next culinary adventure, or brushing up on beer history.
This chick is busting at the seems with Portland beer knowledge! When she’s not at BREWVANA you can find her hanging out drinking beer with her dog and boyfriend on the Oregon coast, in Hood River or anywhere in between!
One of the most enthusiastic dudes you could ever meet. Alex Staunch’s favorite things about Portland (besides the beer) are the bike friendly culture and all the VW busses.
An absolute genius! April Ruth Hoffman will blow your mind with her beer knowledge. Plus, she’s a great resource re: Portland small business and local volunteering.
Say “Hello!” to the Kelene Stinson. A killer tour guide, Kelene can show you some of the best views around town, and give you a serious case of the giggles to boot!
She’s in love with Portland (and it’s fantastic craft beer)! You can find Liz adventuring with her fur-baby, Mila, hanging at breweries, supporting local businesses & exploring the great outdoors.
This lady is all about mandatory fun, so let’s get to it. Jump on one of Lizzy’s tours for a pumped up vibe chock full of fun. P.S. She’s also a bilingual Russian-speaking powerhouse. Boom!
