Brent was great! He did a fantastic job of making sure everyone felt comfortable and taken care of, and that each person's individual tastes were catered to. Brent definitely has the perfect personality for this job. The time flew by, and we got to try some really great beers :)

My daughter and I participated in the Cruise last week and throughly enjoyed every minute. Brent took us to three local breweries. His knowledge of beer and beer production is unequaled, and he made sure that we were enjoying ourselves and appreciating the various types of beer. I highly recommend the Brews Cruise as a fun afternoon in Charleston.

My wife and I were lucky enough to get tickets for the "cruise". The brewery's are great and Brent has built up such a trust with the owners that he hops (get it) on behind the bar and gets the beer for you. He also definetly knows what he is talking about. Very entertaining Thanks Brent it was awesome.

This is a must while you are in Charleston. Brent was the man! Took care of us from the moment we met and provided us with knowledgeable information on beer and the area. Enjoyed great beer and the other people on the tour. Kept everyone involved. Mini bachelor party with my son and friend. Highly recommend this tour to everyone... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Charleston. We had an awesome time meeting Brent and the other couple on our Brews Cruise, and learned a lot while enjoying some awesome beer. Brent is totally knowledgable and is clearly well respected by all of the people at each brewery. He is able to offer behind the scenes... More

My buddies and I had a blast on the Brews Cruise trip this past Saturday. Trip was organized as part of my bachelor party and it was the perfect way to spend the day on Saturday after golfing on Friday. Brent is a true pro but also a good dude. As soon as we got on the van, he had... More

Thanks for the positive review! That was about as much fun as I've ever had on a tour. Definitely didn't feel like I was 'working', while leading that tour. More

Amazing time going to 3 great local breweries (Westbrook, Freehouse and Holy City). It was a smaller and more intimate group, but my wife and I had a great time hanging out and trying great beers from Charleston's finest breweries. Brent was a great and informative tour kind that did not rush us at all. We took our time sampling... More

This tour was really great. It was laid back and Brent was so much fun. We did our tour in May so the air conditioned van was great. They provided waters and snacks for the ride. The breweries are small so you get to the tastings right away. The beer was great and Brent was extremely knowledgeable of the history... More

For the past 5 years, my family has enjoyed going to craft brew fests, craft and micro breweries. This was our first time doing a tour of 3 different breweries in one day. First and foremost, Brent the owner/operator is fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable about the city, surrounding area and has a great personality. Oh, and did I mention... More
