We did the day drinking tour and had a blast. Brent was very knowledgeable and a great driver. He knows the history of beers in Charleston and is a good resource for other area venues and restaurants. Highly recommend!

We loved our Brews Cruise. From seeing fun new places to trying new drinks, it was a great time! No worries about driving or parking, plus we learned a lot from our driver. We would definitely do this again!

Booked this trip with some friends as part of my wife's 40th B-day celebration. JT was great, giving us the background of Charleston breweries and also great descriptions of the beers we sampled. Definitely recommend the tour.

Our tour guide and driver Brett was AWESOME! The breweries were all unique in their own way which made it a fun experience. Our Bachelorette party had the best time.
