Amazing Experience! March 2024

JC knows anything and everything about beer. He even made sure we had water at each stop. Well worth the money and we will definitely book again when we return to Asheville. If you like beer, you MUST do this tour!

J.C. Is The Right Man In The Right Place! February 2024

We got this tour from our great friends who live in the town and we really thanks them for that experience! All you want to know about the Asheville beers and breweries, just ask the guide. As we are from the country where the "beer was born" (Czech Republic, Pilsner) I appreciated the knowledge of that history as well 👍 We spent a lot of fun there and tasted many types of beers during the tour, the Brew Cruise bus was amazing, we met nice people from other countries. Absolutely recommend that 🍻
