Chelsie Rich – A friend and I signed up

A friend and I signed up for the Brewery Experience tour with Gary to try something fun and unique. I wasn't sure what to expect, but this tour ended up being one of my favorite Greenville experiences. Gary was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. His experience and enthusiasm made him the perfect guide. We sampled a wide variety of beer, and we met owners and brewers that taught us about their craft. Our whole group had so much fun! I highly recommend the Brewery Experience tour for locals looking to gain a better perspective on the Greenville craft beer market, and for entertaining friends and visitors. I can't wait to sign up for future tours!

Ashley Lyn Sgrizzi – I was visiting a friend in Greenville

I was visiting a friend in Greenville this past weekend and she signed us up for this tour. I'm really glad we went... it was such a great time! The groups are small which is nice because you get to know everyone that you're touring with. Gary was very knowledgable and a great guide! It's a fun opportunity to tour some of the local breweries, learn all about craft beer, and of course try a bunch of samples! I highly recommend it to anyone in the area.

We are honored and super-stoked by the shout-out in yet another glowing piece about Greenville, South Carolina ... this time it's a wonderful spread in the current edition of Boomer magazine. Our cool little city seems to charm everyone who visits.

We are turning 3 years old in two weeks and so it's time to celebrate!

On Saturday, Feb. 23 we are taking our two weekly Saturday public tours - Afternoon Delight and Twilight Tour - to another level. Our two tours on the 23rd will feature special one-off Brewery Experience anniversary beers made by the breweries that we visit, singer-songwriter Bentley Andrews on board the van who will perform at each venue, and extra-special giveaways and take-home gifts above and beyond what each guest normally receives on all of our tours - all for the regular price of both tours.

The two tours are from 11:30 to 3:00 ($54 per person) and 3:30 to 7:00 ($59 per person). Prices are all-inclusive, with all beer samples throughout the day, tours and meet-and-greets with brewery owners and staff, heavy snacks & bottled water, and lots of giveaways.

To book your spot on either tour visit www.thebreweryexperience.com/brewery-tour-dates-calendar or call 828.216.1343. Come help us celebrate!

Our brewery tours make an awesome birthday gift for friends, family or your significant other.

We've had a huge amount of birthday celebrations in the past couple months, with three just this past Saturday alone - including this fun group on our Greenville Twilight Tour. You can reserve your own private group outing with door to door pick-up/drop-off at your home, hotel or Airbnb, or hop on one of our two Greenville public Saturday tours. Either way, we'll hook the birthday boy/girl up with some extra-special take-home gifts on top of the one that all of our guests receive.

Book your beerthday celebration at www.thebreweryexperience.com, or call 828.216.1343. Cheers!

Happy New Year, beer lovers. It's now time to turn your attention from the holidays to Valentine's Day!

Once again we are hosting our ever-popular Valentine's Chocolate and Beer Tasting Tour, featuring expert pairings of locally made gourmet chocolates with some of the most decadent porters and stouts, fruity IPAs and spicy Belgian-style ales created by our local brewers. Let a chocolatier and a Certified Cicerone (the beer equivalent of a sommelier for wine) put their heads and taste buds together to bring you some mind-blowing romantic pairings.

We'll be offering this special tour on both Thursday, Feb. 14 from 4 to 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Cost is $65 per person and includes all your beer and chocolate tastings throughout the three-stop tour plus other snacks, meet and greet with brewers and owners, expert guided tastings of the beers and beer/chocolate pairings, and a special Valentine's take-home gift!

Woo-hoo!!! We have just received our 100th customer review on TripAdvisor for our Greenville tours - and each one of them 5 stars. We are proud to have given all of our guests over the past three years a really fun and educational experience, and are super-appreciative of our amazing local breweries for their hospitality each week in helping to make that happen.

On Tap: The Brewery Experience

Many thanks to host Jamarcus Gaston and WSPA for having me on the Studio 62 Morning Show today to talk about The Brewery Experience. Jamarcus accidentally broke one of my prized beer glasses on the set, but redeemed himself by preventing me from rambling like an idiot... read more
