Tour was very fun and informative if you are a craft beer lover. Our tour guide Miko was excellent. Had some great beers, and learned a lot about the local Asheville beer culture . I highly recommend this tour!

So the tour meets in Pack Square where your guide gets on the school bus converted into a brews cruise. Premise is three different breweries in a few hours. What was good was knocking out three breweries in Asheville and not worry about driving around while a guide explained the nuts and bolts of beer making. Our guide, Adam, did... More

The tours usually convene in busy Pack Square next to the granite obelisk dedicated to North Carolina’s Civil War Governor Zebulon B. Vance, who was also a native of Buncombe County, of which Asheville is the seat. Our tour begins when a short yellow school bus emblazoned with “Asheville Brews Cruise” pulls up in front; out steps our host, the... More

Our guide (JC) was very friendly,knowledgeable on subject and even acted like he was enjoying his work. Go figure. I would recommend this to others,but be careful you might even learn something.

We were suppose to go on a Saturday afternoon cruise and be picked up at the Hi-Wire but we were never picked up. We called to find out about the delay only to find that the phones are not manned Friday/Saturday/Sunday. So emails were sent with no reply while we were in Asheville. It wasn't until Tuesday afternoon that someone... More

I wish I could say we actually attended this event, BUT the Brews Cruise never picked us up! We received a confirmation email stating we would be picked up at Hi-Wire Brewery and then said at the bottom of the email we would be picked up at Zebulon Park at Patton and Biltmore. We called the main phone number listed... More

This was my second time on the oh-so-fun Brew's Cruise and just as fun as the first. You meet in Pack Square in downtown Asheville and get picked up by a quirky school bus. You'll know it when you see it! We visited three breweries - Pisgah, Highland, and One World Brewing. I was slightly disappointed that the breweries we... More

It was truly a great afternoon. Tour guide Nikki took is to French Broad, Highland, and Hi-Wire. All three breweries served delicious beer. We met one of the beer makers and he sat with us and discussed many different aspects of the brewery. We also got to see a lot of the equipment used. We were offered many samples which... More

My husband and I had such a great time on the Brews Cruise! We went to the Altamont Brewing Company, the Catawba Brewing Company and the French Broad Brewing Company. We tried some incredible beers, learned a great deal about the brewing process and enjoyed getting to see some areas of Asheville that we have never been. The tour guide,... More
