Description:

Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston!...

Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston! Based upon similar beer tours in Europe, we have been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, and a large dose of Charleston's history.

Our exclusive Brewery Tours highlight Charleston's local craft beer scene and are a great way to sample a variety of local brews while hearing the fascinating story behind Charleston beer, with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of several local breweries. The Original Pub & Brewery Tours are definitely the most exciting way to experience the city and everything LOCAL! We often sell out quickly so we recommend making reservations in advance. We accommodate groups of all sizes and will customize any group/event tours to your specific needs. Cheers!

Great Pub Tour

This tour was a great way to learn a bit more about Charleston while also visiting some of it's bars/pubs. I loved that we were able to get local beer on tap at most of the stops.

Our guide was awesome (Brian) and we had a great time exploring places we never would have found on our own. Tickets were well worth the price! Appetizers were yummy. Lots of local beer options, too!

My wife and I took an awesome tour with Scott who is apparently a friend of the owner. We were accompanied by one other couple and a bachelorette party.
