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!

Brian was an excellent host - loved his stories about the pubs and Charleston. Enjoyed all the bars we went to - each had a different atmosphere.

Good stories, history information. Walking tour but not super long walks in between places. Good appetizers, beer and cocktails along the way.

Colby was our tour guide, he was personable, fun, professional and very knowledgeable. Colby took us to places/pubs and areas in Charleston that we would not have seen on a regular tour.

Tour was fine, but 3 weeks before our tour I called to cancel 2 people from our group and was promised a full refund for them. Refund never came despite calling and emailing multiple times. Would not trust them again.
