“This tour is just going to be fun from beginning to end,” said Ruth Berman, CEO and BBB (brains beyond the beer) of Bon Beer Voyage. “In addition to guided tours, we are hosting a scavenger hunt so the guests will have a really fun and unique way to get to know St. Augustine. We will be making a donation to the winner of the scavenger hunt’s favorite charity, so it’s all for a good cause. It’s going to be a great weekend all around.”
