Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston!...

Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston! Based upon similar beer tours in Europe, we have been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, and a large dose of Charleston's history.

Our exclusive Brewery Tours highlight Charleston's local craft beer scene and are a great way to sample a variety of local brews while hearing the fascinating story behind Charleston beer, with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of several local breweries. The Original Pub & Brewery Tours are definitely the most exciting way to experience the city and everything LOCAL! We often sell out quickly so we recommend making reservations in advance. We accommodate groups of all sizes and will customize any group/event tours to your specific needs. Cheers!

By far my favorite thing that I did in Charleston! Brian was great and our random group had such a great time together.

I was looking for a way to have some fun and learn a little more about the city and this was certainly it. Our guide took us to 4 different pubs and made great recommendations at each. The appetizers were a nice addition but plan to eat before or after. It turned out to be a little pricey after paying... More

$30.00 for a couple of mediocre appetizers at a couple of pubs that you can easily find on Trip Advisor was not a good idea Just walk down to the Market on East Bay and use your phone to locate local pubs. Many to choose from. Craftsmen Kitchen has the beer list we found in the area but again, it's... More

We had a great time on this walking tour - from the selection of beers to the fun facts about Charleston. Daniel was a great guide - very knowledgeable and knows how to combine learning about the area with a bit of fun. Our friends were jealous that they did not take the tour with us! We would highly recommend... More

Daniel, the owner, was our guide and he was incredible! His family has lived here for 12 generations and he entertained us with a great deal of fascinating stories about old Charleston's history. Our group was six couples and by the end of the night we were fast friends. The appetizers served on the tour were perfect. Nothing overly fancy... More

We had great fun on this tour - learned some history and sampled some great beer & drinks along with a variety of appetizers. The best part was getting to know the other members of our group from around the country. Great way to check out historic pubs, learn a little history and meet people.
