If we observe a tour participant engaging in any form of harassment toward a brewery staff member, a brewery guest or another tour participant, or if a credible act of harassment is reported to us, the offending tour participant will be asked to leave the tour immediately at his/her own expense and without refund. Additionally and when warranted, The Five-8 Brew Tour reserves the right to notify proper authorities of any activity that could be in violation of local, state or federal laws.
