“The Brewery Experience was nothing short of an amazing experience! Amazing beer, great owners, and an even better guide! He provided delicious snacks, knowledge of beer and was so great to work with! He and I over-communicated with each other and he made every effort possible to make this the best trip ever!”

“Spent a great day with old friends and new. We visited 3 breweries and tried 12 different beers. They were all delicious. If you are looking for a great time, I would highly recommend spending it with Gary and his group. And you get to watch an awesomely funny movie while traveling between sites. Thanks Gary ‘Gump.’”

In my capacity as a guide with Accents on Asheville, it has been my pleasure on several occasions to have Gary Glancy give my groups a brewery tour. The guests always have a great time with Gary.

My husband and I did the tour on Feb 20. Gary was awesome! The information he provided on the three different breweries we went to was interesting and educational. Gary's hospitality exceeded our expectations on every level! We highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Greenville!

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!

“This is the second time we’ve done a tour with The Brewery Experience and had another great time. Loved meeting all the knowledgeable staff and owners at the breweries we visited. You’ll get access and attention you can’t get otherwise. Such a great value for the transportation, beer and overall experience.”

“If you are a craft beer lover, I highly recommend The Brewery Experience. Gary, the owner, and all the brewmasters at the 3 breweries we visited were very knowledgeable.  While in the van he plays this wonderful film, a spoof on Forrest Gump. He runs throughout the U.S. to find the best brews. He is a blast. When visiting Greenville this is a MUST DO!! Thanks again for a fabulous afternoon.”

‘The Brewery Experience is truly that - a total experience. This tour is packed with fun from the moment you step into the van and Gary, the incredibly knowledgeable Certified Cicerone and tour guide, begins playing his hilarious craft beer-themed re-imagining of Forrest Gump on flip-down screens. Our tour included three breweries that were diverse in their offerings, setting and experience. The combination of a fun ride to each brewery, the diverse selection of beers offered at each stop, and Gary’s unrivaled knowledge onbthe subject of craft beer makes this tour a must!’

“We had an awesome time with Gary visiting some of the best breweries in Greenville. My out of town guests were very impressed with the transportation, quality of breweries, beer and overall hospitality. Gary runs a tight ship but manages to make it extremely enjoyable for all. This is a fantastic activity for corporate team building.”
