We did the 3 hour small group brewery tour in downtown Asheville. We had a great time. Not only did we learn about beer, but we also learned a lot about the history of Asheville.
Meets at Hi-Wire Brewing (Thursday, Saturday, Sunday) or Asheville Brewing (Friday) to start your downtown Asheville brewery tour.
Your guide, a certified cicerone, tells you all about this brewery, including its history, beers, and brewing process before you get to taste some for yourself. Sample up to four 6-ounce tastings before moving on to one or two more breweries in Asheville.
Along the walk to each brewery, your guide tells you a little bit about the city’s history and explains what makes this North Carolina city unique. Your guide encourages questions, so feel free to chime in.
Your tour ends at an Asheville brewery where you can stay if you like.
