We had a group of 10 guys and had an absolute blast. The samples were flowing and so was the information on each brewery. Zach, the owner, was our guide and he was a good time and very friendly. I will be back with friends.

I expected more information and a tour of each brewery. What we got was transportation between four different breweries and samples. Very little info or behind-the-scenes touring. They brought us into each site and then we drank samples (which we were told little about) and socialized with the others on the tour. If we had brought along friends to hang... More

Hello, What tour did you cruise on with us? I would appreciate knowing because we hardly ever have had an unhappy customer and if something is being done wrong we like the feedback. Was this a recent cruise? I'm confused as to who you are and when you took our tour. Thanks AshevilleLocal2016 More

This was the second time we went on the Brews Cruise and had a great time. We only went to 3 breweries this time. I'll admit I'm a slow drinker but it seemed the times between samples wasn't quite long enough. Our guide was very knowledgeable about beer and the Asheville area. I would definitely go again.

These guys are great, if I could give them more stars, I would. We did a Friday tour and were able to get to 4 breweries. We had a group of 6 plus a couple we didn't know, but became friendly with right away. JC and Zach went above and beyond when one of our group members started to feel... More

We enjoyed the brews cruise on the short bus with JC and Zack! Great time! Both are amazing hosts that know a lot about the beer scene in Asheville. This tour was 4 breweries off the main path. The small group of 10 allowed was nice and easy to manage. We will take this tour again next time we're in... More

If you love beer, give this tour a try. Four stops with samples provided. Some beer tours are a little skimpy on the pours, but not this one. If you want to try a sample of something other than what is provided, just ask. JC was a superb host. Highly recommended.

To start JC and Zack are amazing hosts. The tour started on time and meandered through four breweries. We never felt rushed to leave for the next destination. They discussed facts about each place we went French Broad, Hi wire, Highland, and Pisgah. Each stop allowed several beer flavors and a description of each. I would recommend riding with these...

My wife and I had so much fun on this tour. The pace was relaxed and the guide was very knowledgeable. The breweries were welcoming and the beer fantastic. We will do the cruise EVERY time we come to Asheville.
