Perfect afternoon

We really enjoyed getting to know our group during the tour as we tasted different varieties of beer. Luminosity at Turn Leaf and the Porter at Green Man stole the show! Mark, our cicerone, was a wealth of knowledge.
Small, informative and tasty experience.

We had a group of only 4 people, which allowed Mike to take us to smaller breweries. He was very knowledgeable and definitely had a love of brewing and history of beer. Very informative.

The tour ended up being just my wife and I but Michael agreed to still do the tour. Very informative tour and Michael had us tasting very diverse beers that he planned out to avoid ruining our taste buds up front.

I’ve been on beer tours before, but this one takes the cake! Very knowledgeable tour guide that did a deep dive into many aspects of brewing, alcohol laws, physiological responses to beer consumption, etc. And it was fun! Got my nerd and buzz on with a great group. Highly recommended.

Incredible experience
Tom_T, 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
Karen_D, Jul 2021
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.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
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!
Michele_T, May 2021
