Who we are
Brian Colon and Donnie Hayes have been friends since Sophomore year in High School. For years they have traveled the United States learning their craft and enjoying the crooked course that brought them to this moment. Crooked Craft Tours is built on a foundation of Brian’s love for spectacularly crafted beer and Donnie’s love for people and the sound of laughter. Brian has honed his craft by way of studying Beverage management at UNLV, and years of restaurant management. Donnie has learned his craft from graduating with a degree in Recreation Management and years managing recreation centers, large events, and leisure activities. We believe that our craft may have been a crooked path but we know that this will be the best path possible for our guests. Welcome to Crooked Craft Tours, where the laughs are always on tap.
Crooked Craft Tours promises to provide every guest an engaging, spirited tour. We promise to provide incredible breweries and vineyards that our guests will appreciate and will want to visit over and over again. We promise to provide safe and comfortable shuttles. We promise to always have our guests best interests at heart. We promise to laugh, to play, and to have a great time.
Our Shuttle Buses
Crooked Craft Tours owns two shuttle buses, The Cardinal and The Blues. Our shuttles, are simple, comfortable, vehicles built to get us from Brewery to Brewery. We have kept our shuttles small so that we would have small intimate groups to share laughter and enjoyment with those around us.
Our Comedian Guides
Bare Knuckle Comedy is a comedy collective made up of stand ups, sketch comics, improvisers, actors & podcasters. They produce several live shows, podcasts & videos.
BKC’s shows have become “a stop for touring independent comics from across the country”, according to Alive magazine.
Our shows have been reviewed positively from media & comics alike: Marlena Rodgiruguez (staff writer for “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) called Bare Knuckle Comedy “the best comedy show in St. Louis”, and The Riverfront Times called the same show “the sort of smiling, ham-fisted comedy that twenty-somethings have come to love and cherish”.
