We took this tour Jan 2014 for our anniversary and had the best time. We met the group downtown and loaded up on a renovated school bus. Our tour guide had a lot of personality and gave us some city history as well as brewery information along the way. We stopped at a few different places and had samples (plus... More

Great value. Ryan was very knowledgeable about both the city, beer making and beer in general. Went to Hi Wire, Pisgah and French Broad breweries. Great behind-the scenes beer making tour at Pisgah. Ryan went out of his way to drop us a Salsa for a late dinner during a down-pour/monsoon. Only down-side was the leaking roof on the bus... More

Booked this cruise not really knowing what we were going to do. It was such a blast! Picked up in a short bus by Ian and toured 3 microbreweries in Asheville. He was incredibly knowledgeable about all things beer and most especially about the beers we were sampling. Everyone at the breweries were very nice and the beer was delicious!... More

My wife and I went on the Mobile Cruise with 8 other people. We had a blast, got to know some cool strangers, learned a lot, and got decently drunk. JC was an excellent guide, and we would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

I scheduled a private group tour for a company outing during a retreat in Asheville and had an awesome time! Since we had a large group, we were picked up right at our hotel, and had our own bus with guide and driver. Our guide was very knowledgeable, the breweries were a blast and very accommodating and best of all,... More

Janelle was excellent!! Very knowledge, funny and so nice. We really enjoyed all of our tour, but our favorite was CATAWBA Brewing Co. Bryan was so nice and helpful. We loved the the beer and the bar decor too!!

I cid a brewery tour through Asheville Brews Cruise in the fall and it was so much fun! I felt very well taken care of, and the woman who drove our van and took us around was enthusiastic, fun and professional, and was clearly passionate about what she does! I learned more than I thought I would about how beer... More

Educational and fun all rolled into one. It was a great way to catch up with family and friends while be-bopping around the City. A visit to Asheville, NC will not be complete without taking one of the Asheville Brews Cruise tours!
