Eight of us booked this tour with Brent for a bachelor party. We had an outstanding time on the tour, learned quite a bit, drank some delicious beer, and made some new friends. I would definitely do this again and recommend it to others.

My husband and I spent our Saturday afternoon doing the Charleson Brews Cruise with Brent. It was a great, laid back experience. Brent was so personable, he made a point to chat with everyone on our tour. Snacks and water were provided on the bus which I thought was a nice treat. My husband is the beer enthusiast in our...

My friend and I took this trip and we both love it so much. We visited three breweries, one before it even opened!! It was great to have someone else driving so you can just enjoy the brew and not worry! Recommend to any beer enthusiasts!!

We do visit several of the breweries when they aren't open to the public, which makes for a true VIP experience. Appreciate you taking the time to review! More

My husband and I went on the Charleston Brews Cruise as a mid-week afternoon activity and had a great time! Brent our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the brewing process and gave us an insiders view into three local breweries. We enjoyed being driven around on his tour bus and he made sure we were comfortable with water and... More

It's always a pleasure to have locals on the tour. Time and time again when I do have locals on board, they comment how I've shown them a side of Charleston they had never previously experienced. Anyone can go to a brewery on their own, but joining Brews Cruise you will learn the brewers background, brewery stats, the process of... More

We are sort of the anti-Charleston because we don't discuss Charleston history, and we don't tour downtown. But we do have a lot of fun and learn a ton about the beer scene in the city, so I'm glad you confirmed our intentions. More

Nate, our guide was very knowledgeable about both the beers ans breweries in town, but also the town's history in general. My one complaint is one of personal taste, I tend to like darker beers but there is a smaller selection of those available in Charleston since it is so hot most of the year and people tend to want...

Nate has down a great job filling in for me, and it's great to hear he went out of his way to find styles you prefer. Luckily most of the local breweries have a large variety of styles so we can usually accommodate everyone's palate. More
