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.

This special private tour includes round-trip transportation with door-to-door pick-up/drop-off, all your beer and cider throughout the day, full lunch, snacks and bottled water, special-access tours/guided tastings with brewery owners and staff, and a special 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.

Wrapped Christmas gifts are cool, but how about sharing an experience??

Gift cards make the perfect holiday stocking stuffer, and they are super easy to order on our website. Just visit www.thebreweryexperience.com and click the big Purchase Gift Card button near the top of the homepage. The great part about our gift cards is that you don't have to commit to a tour date to select for your loved one ... let THEM choose any available date/tour throughout the year that works best for them when they're ready. You can gift a dollar amount or a specific Greenville tour. We also offer private tours to Asheville/Hendersonville area breweries including the world renown Sierra Nevada (four-person minimum group size)/

Call 828.216.1343 or email cheers@thebreweryexperience.com with any questions. Cheers and Hoppy Holidays!

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!

What could pair better with Thanksgiving dinner than one of the Southeast’s most iconic, popular and delicious pumpkin beers? Take a Greenville tour with us this Saturday (11/17), next Wednesday (11/21) or next Saturday (11/24), and take home a can of King Don’s from Catawba Brewing, named after co-founder Don Richardson of Quest Brewing Company ... one of the stops on our Greenville tours. This beer is gone for the season, but we have some stashed away to help spice up your Thanksgiving festivities. Visit www.thebreweryexperience.com for tour schedule and to book your tour. Cheers.

Cheers from The Brewery Experience, serving Upstate South Carolina for three years as Greenville's premier brewery tour company. The only guided brewery tour service in the Upstate led by a Certified Cicerone - that's the beer equvalent of a sommelier for wine - we have earned the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor the past two years, showcasing Greenville's abundance of amazing beer makers while also offering private group excursions from Greenville to Sierra Nevada and other Asheville-area breweries.

Meet the brewers, learn about craft beer from a certified beer expert, sample a wide variety of beer styles from traditional to cutting edge, enjoy delicious snacks, and bond with your tour mates as we hop from brewery to brewery in our beautiful 12-passenger van. Check out this short, fun video about what we do ...

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
