Brewery Tour FAQs

Are your brewery tours near me? Can I bring my dog, cat, imaginary friend?
Check out our FAQ or contact us directly. We want to make sure you have all the information you need to choose the best brewery tour for you!

All of our tours start at the first brewery on the itinerary that day. When you arrive at the brewery, let the bartender know you are there for the tour, and they will point out your expert brewery tour guide.

Our tours focus on the breweries of Asheville’s downtown South Slope neighborhood. We often include Hi-Wire Brewing, Twin Leaf Brewery and Green Man.

Brewery tour tickets include access to a local beer expert who will guide your tour, as well as all of the beer samples offered at each brewery. Food and merchandise are not included in the brewery tour ticket price.

We limit our group sizes to provide a more personal experience for our guests. Our standard tours are capped at 14 people. If you have a larger group, please ask us about our private tours.

Yes! Though, I can’t promise they’re super interesting for kids; unless your kids are beer and Asheville history fans… My recommendation is that if you’d like to bring your child, they are more than welcome. However, if at any point during the tour your child is not enjoying themselves and affecting the enjoyment of others on the tour, we ask that you please take them away from the group until they are feeling better. And no, small children don’t need tickets, just shoot us a text or email to let us know to expect some kids that day. Adult children 18+ can buy a non-drinking ticket.
This is honestly a tough one. All of the breweries we visit on our tours have dog friendly areas, we just can’t guarantee based on space/weather/temperature that our group would be hanging out in the dog friendly area at every stop. I would rather you have that information up front than find out that we advertised a dog friendly tour but you can’t go in the production area with your dog, so you miss out on that… My advice is that if you can leave your dog at home, that would be easiest. If you need to bring your dog and are okay with potentially missing some of the tour, your dog is welcome to tag along. Again, just shoot us a text or email as a consideration to let us know.
Yes, there is free street parking available throughout the South Slope neighborhood (the part of town with the most breweries). There are also several pay lots in the area. Keep in mind that you must pay at the pay lots or they will tow you… Yes, it has happened and it’s a bummer way to end your tour.

Yes. When we started BREW-ed the plan was to maybe get a van at some point. Since then, it’s been ten years and there is so much happening downtown that we have decided not to waste time getting everyone in and out of buses and drive around looking for parking. Our tours are focused on beer and history and walking between stops allows us to share more of both with our guests.

Yes. Though they are advertised as walking tours, walking is not an ability requirement to participate. All of the breweries we visit are wheelchair accessible and we travel between each stop on paved city streets. We consistently adjust the pace of our tours to the ability level of the members of the group, and we never leave anyone behind. Again, not having a van to load in and out of can be a good thing! 🙂
