Travels in Beer Tours
Travels in Beer Tours' chauffeured adventures make pit stops at breweries throughout Western North Carolina, where tourists sip samples of award-winning local beers. However, the tours are about more than drinking—the expert guides also let tour groups a peek behind the scenes and offer insights on the beer-making process and tricks for pairing beer with food. On select tours, participants also hike to picturesque waterfalls or feast on hearty bratwurst lunches.
