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

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

I went on a tour while visiting family in Asheville and had a great time. Our tour went to Pisgah, Highland and ended at Asheville Brewing Company. We were able to sample so many great beers with such a variety in flavor! Aside from the beer, getting to experience the different atmospheres of the breweries was awesome too. I usually... More

We've been on several brews cruises as a work group. We've toured the many breweries of Asheville; it's one of our favorite yearly travel adventures we take as a group. We also branched out one year as a smaller group and tried the winery, brewery, and meadery trip, which was very informative and fun. We met the sweetest couple who... More

Our group of 5 went on a Saturday afternoon brew cruise. We went to pisgaw brewery as our first stop, it was great, then we were at French broad and the main brewer was awesome and so was the beer. Hi-wire was fun but we just sampled beer and did not talk with anyone from the brewery but by then... More

I have been on the Brew's Cruise a couple of times now, and I would go again! It's so much fun and very informative. You definitely get your money's worth, for the tour and the beer samples! I would totally recommend this tour to anyone who visits Asheville or for anyone who lives here!!

My mom recently wrote a review of this company, giving it one star. Everything in the review was accurate, but we want to upgrade them. When we sent them an email about the problems with our tour, they refunded our total payment, and offered us another tour for free. We feel this deserves some recognition.
