Eight years ago, John Georgis bought a dilapidated school bus to give tours of Boulder. He took the top off, refurbished the bus with wood planks, and started giving tours as Banjo Billy's Bus Tours . (He earned the nickname when a friend teased him that he looked like a hillbilly in the bus. Georgis embraced the idea.)
Recently, Banjo Billy piloted a successful brewery tour in Boulder, so Georgis drove the idea to Denver. He describes his bus as “a shack on wheels,” fashioned with saddles, couches, recliners, disco balls, a sound system, and a rubber chicken. In its third week, his Brewery tour offers a wacky glimpse of Denver, as seen through the pint glass.
When: Thursdays at 5:15 p.m.
The Tour: Meet at Wynkoop Brewing Company  for a guided tour of the facilities. Then, at 6 p.m. get on the bus for trips to Denver Beer Company , Breckenridge Brewery , and Strange Brewing Company . “By this time it’s normally a dance party on the bus,” Georgis explains. It’s back to Wynkoop by 9 p.m.
