Recognized as one of the top 15 food tours in the world by National Geographic Traveler Magazine

A UNIQUE ASHEVILLE BREWERY TOUR EXPERIENCE

BREW-ed's brewery tours are more than just drinking! You and your friends will get a complete behind the scenes look at the brewing process. Learn how Asheville's brewers transform four raw ingredients into the huge variety of beer styles we enjoy today. Learn how to critically taste a beer, how to describe beer flavors, and learn which ingredients create them. You'll get special access to Asheville's breweries and learn the stories behind the pints. And while Asheville is known for craft beer, the city also has a rich history.  In between stops your brewery tour guide will share stories from Asheville’s past and how this little mountain town became the destination it is today.

EXPERT BREWERY TOUR GUIDES

Every BREW-ed of Asheville brewery tour is led by a Certified Cicerone® , an internationally recognized expert when it comes to beer.  This means our tours go further than other Asheville beer tours.  Our guides take beer seriously and have spent years working in the local craft beer industry to gain the experience necessary to run the most unique brewery tours Asheville has to offer.   

WALKING BREWERY TOURS LET YOU EXPERIENCE ASHEVILLE

Downtown Asheville is home to twelve breweries.  Why not walk?  Most beer tours keep you cooped up in a van between stops.  Our downtown Asheville brewery tours let you experience the city.  Asheville was a cosmopolitan playground for the wealthy during the roaring twenties, earning it the nickname of, "The Paris of the South," and we have lots to share.  Hear about the missing mountain, the skyscraper that never was, and how the railroad changed everything.       .      

ENJOY GREAT ASHEVILLE BEER

At each stop our brewery tour guides will pour several beers to showcase what makes each brewery unique.  Variety is the spice of life, so we encourage tour participants to try everything!  Our greatest compliment is when we hear you're enjoying a beer you never would have ordered on your own.
