Meeting and event planners looking for ways to explore Texas’ Capital City and do some team-building need look no further than Twisted Texas Tours. The company offers entertaining yet educational ways to discover Austin’s weird, wacky and wild sides with two signature tours: the Brunch Bus Tour and the Live Music & Brewery Tour. Both tours offer one-of-a-kind Austin experiences infused with comedy, unusual histories, live music and, of course, the option to bring your own adult beverages.

Twisted Texas’ Live Music and Brewery Tour is a party on wheels that combines two of Austin’s most popular things—music and beer. The two-and-a-half-hour tour treats guests to stops at two local breweries for a behind-the-scenes look at Austin’s booming craft beer industry, complete with beer tastings. In addition to the brewery stops and beer samples, a local band provides live music aboard the tour bus, showing guests why Austin is the ‘Live Music Capital of the World.’ 

The Brunch Bus provides guests with brunch at three of Austin’s most popular eateries. Brunch favorites include local specialties like chicken and waffles, Czech kolaches and breakfast tacos. A complimentary adult beverage is available at each stop and guests are welcome to bring their favorite adult beverage on the bus. Last but not least, Twisted Texas provides a live band for the two-and-ahalf-hour tour. 

“Both of our signature tours offer visitors the opportunity to get behind-the-scenes looks at the people, places and things that give Austin its funky flare. The tours at Twisted Texas offer fun, interactive ways for large and small groups to bond and experience some of Austin’s best local hot spots,” says Meagan Fritts, founder of Twisted Texas Tours.
