WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY PRIVATE BREW-ed BREWERY TOUR?
Every BREW-ed Brewery Tour is hosted by a Certified Cicerone®, a recognized expert when it comes to beer. As your guide takes you to each brewery, you'll do more than just drink. You'll learn about the brewing process, the ingredients and the history of beer while you discover some of the best breweries Asheville has to offer.
At each stop on the brewery tour, you will enjoy three to four six ounce samples of beer. It is highly recommended that you eat a substantial meal before the tour and take smaller samples if you feel like you've had enough alcohol.
In between breweries, your guide will tell you about the history of Asheville and how it came to be the beautiful city it is today. Feel free to ask questions at any point during the tour, as BREW-ed's goal is to share what we love.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL MY BREW-ed BREWERY TOUR START AND END?
Your Private Brewery & History Walking Tour will start at 4:30pm at Twin Leaf Brewery located at 144 Coxe Avenue on Friday 9/8. Free parking is available along Coxe Avenue. The tour will last two hours and finish at Catawba Brewing on Banks Avenue.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?
At each stop, your tour guide will share the brewery's story, show you around behind the scenes and let you sample the beers that make each one unique. You'll learn how beer is made all the way from the grain to the glass, where your favorite beer styles come from and how to taste them all while enjoying award winning beers from "Beer City USA". By the end of the tour you'll have a fair amount of beer in you and a bit of knowledge about one of the world's most popular beverages.
WHERE ELSE ARE WE GOING?
After we enjoy Twin Leaf, and a behind the scenes look at brewing, the tour will head to Catawba Brewing, one of Western North Carolina's brewing pioneers.
HOW FAR ARE WE GOING TO WALK?
If this is your first visit to Asheville, you will be amazed at how walkable the downtown area is. All of the breweries on the tour are less than a 10 minute walk from one another along paved city sidewalks. While the walking tour is an eco-friendly and healthier alternative to a bus tour, our goal is an enjoyable relaxing experience, not a marathon. Comfortable shoes are recommended.
All tour participants must be over 21 years of age with valid ID. (In North Carolina that means an NC driver's license or NC ID card, any other US state's driver's license, a military ID or a Passport. Out of state ID cards and foreign identification (excluding passports) ARE NOT VALID AND WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.) If you have someone in your group who would like to come along but isn't going to drink, special accommodations can be made. Please let us know in advance.
UNDERAGE ALCOHOL POLICY
NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN FOR LACK OF PROPER IDENTIFICATION. Underage sale, purchase or consumption of alcoholic beverages is against the law in NC and BREW-ed and our gracious brewery hosts cannot take the risk of serving someone we shouldn't. Please plan ahead and bring the right documents as listed above. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.
