Incredible experience
, Aug 2021
Our guide was very knowledgeable on how beer is made, it was very interesting. The beers that we tasted were awesome. I would highly recommend this tour.
Nice tour, needed one more brewery of the amount of time

Wish it had been over 3 breweries, not just 2. Jo was very knowledgeable and was great at giving a solid overview of brewing and the history of Asheville. According to the sight, we were supposed to start at Hi-wire and that was changed the day of. Again, for the money, it should have covered 3 breweries.

Hi Karen, I’m so glad you had a great time on the tour with Jo! Due to Covid, Hi-Wire isn’t quite ready for tour groups, so we got to show you around a local favorite instead. BREW-ed offers two and three hour tours that visit two or three breweries. You chose to join a two brewery tour, which is why it didn’t visit three breweries. :) Maybe next time we’ll see you on a three brewery tour? Again, glad you had a good time!

We really enjoyed our tour! Very knowledgeable guide & great samples of beer. A wonderful way to kick off our weekend in Asheville!
Wonderful beer and guide.

This is one of the best beer tours that we have been on. Cliff was very informative and knowledgeable about how beer is made and the growing industry in Asheville. We had a full flight of beer at each stop. Four different beers at each of the three breweries. We would highly recommend this tour.

Amazing Beer in Asheville

Our guide was awesome. My wife and I are both very nerdy people with engineering and biology. We asked him many questions and he answered them all. He did a great job of fulfilling our inner nerd. I would recommend Cliff (our tour guide) very highly. He was wonderful!
Big pour what a bore

It was Simi interesting It seemed like we were going around a point that was never reached Could be because it was an outside tour and it was freezing cold Also there were dead zones while we waited for the guide to get on line to get each new beer No cohesion with the group

Hi Marilyn, I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your time with us. I understand that you were concerned about your sister and her boyfriend after their accident on your hiking tour that morning. I know it would be hard for me to relax and drink beer if I was in a similar situation. For your concerns, our tours are walking tours so we encourage our guests to prepare for some outside time along the way. As much as I wish to keep it 70 and sunny every day, sometimes it's not. :( Also, we always skip the lines at breweries for beer, but sometimes only one bartender is working and we have to wait for them to help another customer. I recall you seeming impatient with the bartenders at each brewery, and I apologize if their service was slower than you would have liked. That's why I always grab our next beer while our guests still have beer in their glasses, so no one is left empty while I grab the next round. Also, as I recall you left halfway through the tour to go check on your sister. Maybe the point you were hoping us to reach came after you left? We shared a lot more stories about Asheville, the beer industry here and craft beer in general at our third stop. Again, I'm sorry you didn't have the best time, and if you'd like to try again on us sometime, please let me know via email. Hope your sister is well.
