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!

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.

Looking for a cool stocking stuffer for your beer-loving spouse, significant other, parent or son/daughter? Six-packs are a bit awkward to stuff in a stocking, but what about a gift card for a brewery tour!

We serve Greenville, Henderson County - including Sierra Nevada - and Asheville (by request), taking guests to the area's finest breweries in our beautiful 12-passenger van, as you sample various beer styles, learn about craft beer and meet the folks who make it. We even offer an all-inclusive tour where we'll pick your group up in Greenville at your house or hotel, bring you up the mountain to do our hugely popular Sierra Nevada three-stop loop, and take you back down to Greenville right back to your house or hotel.

Visit www.thebreweryexperience.com and click the Purchase Gift Card button near the top of our homepage. The best part is, you do NOT have to select a date when purchasing a gift card - you can do that later on.

Hoppy Holidays!

Greetings beer lovers. We've been away from here for a while, leading tours and working on our movie, Gary Gose Gump - a craft beer-themed parody of Forrest Gump created by and starring The Brewery Experience founder Gary Glancy. This includes an epic road trip across America, where we filmed several scenes for the movie in some breathtaking national parks like Death Valley, Mount Rainier, Yellowstone and Zion.

Gary Gose Gump will be the feature film for an exciting new traveling film fest called Parodies for Charity, sponsored by The Brewery Experience. We're taking this film fest on the road to Asheville, Hendersonville, Fletcher and Greenville, with proceeds going to a nonprofit in each of these towns. Here is the schedule, with venue and respective charity for each town.

Jan. 9 and 10: Asheville, Wedge Brewing Co. at Foundation, 7-9 p.m. (Homeward Bound)

Jan. 14 and 15: Hendersonville, Flat Rock Cinema, 4-6 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. both days (Blue Ridge Humane Society)

Jan. 16: Fletcher, Blue Ghost Brewing Co., 7-9 p.m. (Safelight shelter program)

Jan. 23 and 24: Greenville, Birds Fly South Ale Project, 7-9 p.m. (Greenville Humane Society)

We hope you'll come out to support these great causes, while enjoying some great laughs and great beer in the process. Tocket information for each venue coming in the next few days.

Cheers!

We're just four days away from Father's Day ... looking for a cool gift idea for dad this weekend? How 'bout a brewery experience!

Not only do dads get $15 off both of our two regular Saturday tours this weekend - Afternoon Delight (11:30-3:00) and Twilight Tour (3:30-7:00) - but they'll also take home a sweet gift bag filled with beer and other beer-related goodies. Plus, we'll do a drawing on both tours for the chance to win a can of Catawba Brewing's wildly popular Peanut Butter Jelly Time Ale (which has long been sold out) AND a can of Heady Topper double IPA - which recently was rated the No. 1 beer in the world for three consecutive years and was delivered straight from the brewery in Vermont by a good friend of ours.

Visit www.thebreweryexperience.com and click the Book Now button to book your tour. Enter the Promo Code Dad to get the discount for either tour. Discount applies once per booking, so if you have multiple dads in your group, be sure each one books separately. Last year we turned away many folks the day before and day of these two Father's Day weekend tours, so don't wait!

Call (828) 216-1343 with any questions. Cheers, and Hoppy Father's Day!!

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
