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

This was such an amazing time! My best friend and I went on the Brew Moon tour. First was Troy and Sons Whiskey Distillery where we actually got to talk to one of the distillers. Then, we went to Highland Brewery and toured their facility. Great time! Good beer! Then we went to Hi-Wire Brewing company to sample some more... More

Our initial experience with this company was poor. We had originally scheduled our cruise date for a Sunday afternoon, but the tour had been canceled with no one letting us know. So we were stuck waiting at the pickup point; when we called the company, there was no answer. So, after waiting a while, we just reluctantly walked away. After... More

We had the BEST time on the Asheville Brews Cruise! Experienced different hard ciders at Urban Orchard, some excellent wines at Addison Farms and some great meads from Fox Hill Meadery. our tour guide, Nicky, was full of fun and made sure everyone was engaged, comfortable and as the tour progressed we all began to interact on the bus (go...
