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.

That's Liability Brewing Co. Head Brewer CJ on the far right after leading our group on a private brewhouse tour and guided tasting last week. We are stoked to have recently included 7-month-old Liability on several of our public and private Greenville tours, as CJ and his staff are making top-notch beers and he is more than happy to pass on his wealth of knowledge to our guests.

Fun company team-building group for our Greenville Hump Day Getaway Tour this week! We had a great time with guided tours/tastings from owner Bill Davis at Thomas Creek, head brewer CJ and assistant brewer Jared at Liability, and owner Jack at The 8th State.

Since they were all one group, we went and picked them up and dropped them off at the beautiful Embassy Suites on Verdae Boulevard where they were staying. If you're a group of at least four and are interested in our fun Hump Day Getaway on Wednesday afternoons, we'll come pick you up and drop you off at your rental home or hotel within 15 minutes of downtown Greenville. Questions? Call 828.216.1343, or visit www.thebreweryexperience.com to book your tour. Cheers.

Thanks to Greenville breweries Birds Fly South, Liability, Quest, The 8th State and Thomas Creek for making our 3rd Anniversary a special day on Saturday with our Afternoon Delight and Twilight Tours. The beers, and those who created them, were amazing.

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!
