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

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...

The beer tour is a must when visiting Charleston. Great guide knows exactly what he is talking about. The beer is great and the atmosphere is even better! We had to try and squeeze this in last minute and Brent made it happen for us. I would recommend this to anybody who enjoys great beer and good company.

Had an absolutely great time with tour guide, Brent! We visited three very unique breweries in Charleston, places we would not have found without this guided tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about beer and was happy to answer any off-the-wall questions our group asked. My boyfriend and I were joined by a bachelor's party and two brothers. We were... More

Loved this trip with Brent! The bus was great and the snacks and water were perfect to have in between the breweries! GOLDFISH!!! Large pours and the beers at all breweries were great. We had a larger group so he even picked us all up from our hotel which was extremely convenient for us. We toured 3 breweries and tried... More

An awesome tour. Brent is very friendly and easy going. He has many funny and cool stories. I would definitely recommend this tour if your into beer and want to taste some great beers directly from the source. Like a lot of microbreweries, some of these places are hard to find unless your familiar with the area. This is a... More

We toured three breweries, sampling 4-5 beers at each one. The tour was great, a mini history lesson tied in with the south and prohibition. I highly recommend this tour to anyone living or visiting Charleston.

Great tour, knowledgeable tour guide/beer afficiando. Both myself and the rest of the crew on the "short bus" all agreed.Brent and his "bouncer" Nate kept us in stitches with stories of previous beer tour guests and local brewing history. The three breweries were varied yet excellent in beer styles and offerings. Highly recommend to come thirsty and ready to party.
