The Most Fun Thing April 2024

Alex was an AMAZING brewery guide!! This tour was the most fun thing that we did during our time in Charleston. I would highly recommend this to any beer lovers. It's a great way to try new places and get a taste for the city! My only regret is that we got a group photo but only on one person's phone! I wish I had the pic!

The Highlight Of Our Trip April 2024

Plenty of Beer March 2024

This tour offered plenty of beer. I enjoyed the van ride because we were able to see parts of Charleston that were not in the historical section. Food was available at our stops at an additional cost, but the tour guide was determined to make sure we learned as much as possible about beer, and I never had time to worry about food. By the time the trip was over, we had learned fun new facts about Charleston and the other people on the tour.

I Would Absolutely Take This Tour Any Day Of The Week! November 2023

We had a fantastic time with this tour and I cannot recommend it enough! We did the Pubs, Taverns, and Taprooms tour on a Wednesday in late October. Coby was incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining. The breadth of Charleston history that he was able to cram into 3 hours was incredible. He covered broad themes in Charleston history through many detailed and riveting stories of smaller events. While we almost failed the only "test" he gave us, I would give him an A+. In addition to the history, his knowledge of beer led us to some really great picks at each stop.

Trio in Charleston October 2023

My wife and I joined Coby Glass on October 19, 2023 on the Pub Tour. We had a wonderful time. Coby did a great job, bringing historical information, comedy and excellent information regarding the brewery's we visited the multiple beer options to choose from. We loved the back alleys and short cuts we took as we walked around town. Coby was very willing to answer all of our questions. It was money well spent.
