“Great Experience, Highly Recommend”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

A group of 4 went on this the other day, and it was the best event we undertook wile in Charleston. Brent was very knowledgeable about all the beers we tasted, and he was very easy to talk to while we traveled between the breweries. The samples we got are all local, and all very unique. Brent also gave us a walk-through of the brewing process, which was a great addition for a novice like myself. All in all it was a great experience, and any beer connoisseur would thoroughly enjoy the Brews Cruise.

“A great trip and an exciting way to learn about beer”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Me and a couple of my friends were down to celebrate a birthday when we ran across the booze cruise. The cruise was a blast and the tour guide was a fountain of knowledge and also a lot of fun to talk to. We went to holy city, free house, and Westbrook. We had Westbrook all to ourselves and we're able to try all of there amazing beers, we also got a tour of their brewing area including the fermenting area, the caning process and the barrel area for aged beer. Free house we had again to ourselves and we got to see a very distinct brewery which uses all organic ingredients and had some delicious and interesting beers. We then went to holy city which was my favorite. Holy city had a lot of different beers and was in a cool place. Holy city had so many beers to choose from and was just an amazing experience. I think this is a great way to see some of the off the beaten path breweries and see a different growing area of charleston. All in all I would definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone.

Glad you enjoyed the tour and thanks for such a thorough review! We just added Freehouse Brewing to the tours and they are doing really cool stuff. One of the only all organic breweries in the South - grain and hops. Also, all American made brewing equipment. Well done Freehouse!

“Must do for beer lovers”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We went on the Charleston Brews Cruise yesterday and forgot to bring cash for a tip so we figured the next best thing would be to write an awesome, well deserved review of our experience. Brent was great- super knowledgeable of beer culture and overall just a really friendly guy. All the breweries he took us to were really cool and we got to sample lots of tasty beers. Well worth the money that we paid. Would definitely recommend this to anyone coming to visit Charleston.

“Amazing Weekend Activity Even for Charleston Locals”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

We (group of 10 of us) had an absolutely amazing afternoon with Ken as our tour guide. We are all from Charleston and have lived in the area for awhile. We all agreed that this was the best/most fun activity we've ever done in Charleston. All the breweries were extremely friendly and all the beers were great! Brent bent over backwards for our group and couldn't have been friendlier (this was a surprise birthday present/party). This is an amazing company! We all agreed we couldn't wait to do this again with three different breweries in the Spring! The fact that there was water and snacks provided on the bus truly shows how Brent thinks of everything.

“So much fun!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Thanks to Charleston Brews Cruise for a great day on a recent bachelorette trip! Our guide Brent was very knowledgeable and took us to three different breweries, all with great beer and generous pours. We were able to spend some time at each brewery to play cornhole, listen to music or just hang out. Water and snacks were provided on the bus, which was a great touch. This was well worth the money and I highly recommend it!

So glad to hear the bachelorette party enjoyed their Brews Cruise experience. That was still the coldest tour ever...42 degrees and steady rain. Y'all were troopers!!
