Learn how beer is made all the way from how the grain is grown to how the shape of the glass can affect your beer. Learn proper beer tasting techniques to make sure you enjoy every drop of delicious Asheville beer to its fullest. Get the inside scoop from an industry expert on the local craft breweries here in Asheville and hear each brewery’s story from someone who has watched them grow.
What Can I Expect on a BREW-ed Brewery Tour of Asheville?
Every BREW-ed tour starts with a detailed look at the brewing process. Craft beer tours often leave out the science behind the pints. On your brewery tour, you’ll sample the raw ingredients that produce the unique flavors and aromas in beer. You’ll see how some of the best breweries in Asheville transform those raw elements into the beers we sample along the way, all while your beer tour guide shares the history of each brewery and why each brewery in Asheville stands out from the crowd.
More Than Asheville’s Best Breweries
While Asheville's amazing breweries have certainly made our city a hub for beer in the southeast, craft beer is a nationwide phenomenon. On our brewery tours we take a look at the craft beer industry as a whole, and how it has grown from the microbreweries of the 1970s to the superstars and up-and-comers you find on beer store shelves here in Asheville and elsewhere.
One of the Most Fun Things to Do In Asheville
While beer is certainly our passion, we want to make sure our craft brewery tours are a memorable part of your visit to Asheville. Asheville is an amazing city, and we consider ourselves fortunate to be a part of it. In between stops, your brewery tour guide will share stories from Asheville’s past. Asheville has a fascinating history of rags to riches to rags to riches again. Hear about the man who took down a mountain and the scandalous past of Lexington Avenue. Our brewery tour guides are also great resources for recommendations on places to eat, where to stay and for other top activities in Asheville to enjoy while you’re here.
Craft Beer Education
BREW-ed offers craft beer education and consulting services to Asheville breweries, bars and restaurants. Asheville has become a craft beer destination, so it is essential that bartenders and servers have the training they need to properly serve our delicious local beer. BREW-ed’s founder, Cliff Mori, helped develop the Brewing Sciences programs at both AB-Tech and South College here in Asheville and also works as an educator for the Cicerone Certification Program, an international organization dedicated to better beer service. Let BREW-ed give your staff the knowledge they need to best represent Asheville beer.

Perfect for a corporate team building exercise or a fun addition to a wedding weekend, BREW-ed can customize a private downtown brewery tour for your group, guide your friends and family through a private tasting of great Asheville beer at the venue of your choice or help you create your own beer themed special event.
