Grab a cold one, hop on the bus and jam out on Asheville’s premiere brewery tour.
While our other tours are sure to make you laugh, the Band and Beer Bus Tour is all about music, beer and a great time! Kick back and enjoy the ride as a live local band plays (on the bus!) while we take you to visit three of our favorite local breweries.
Each 30 minute stop begins with a brief history of the breweries as well as highlights of their special brews and beers of note. Jump back on the bus and continue to enjoying your beer, listening to the live music and take in the mountainous back drop that only Asheville has to offer.
"Settle into your seat and sing along, just remember to pace yourself!"
"There were points where I thought the River Rats were going to rock the wheels off of the bus. If that happened, I would’ve died a happy man!"
"This is America’s next great music city"
"The guide for the trip was hysterical and kept us all together having a great time. Would take again any day 10/10!"

Asheville Is America’s Next Great Music City
If Asheville is the best-kept music secret in the country, the secret is starting to get out.

It takes a lot for a city to be identified for its music. The “Music City U.S.A.” distinction belongs to Nashville, Tennessee, largely because the country music industry makes its home there. Austin goes a step further with a mural that declares itself as “The Music Capital of the World,” a claim that’s hard to argue with when considering the role that its South by Southwest conference plays in the music industry. A place like New Orleans holds its stake in music for birthing the genre of jazz, which is a rare art form whose genesis can be linked solely to America. And for the US’ biggest cities — Los Angeles, New York, Chicago — the music connection doesn’t even need to be overtly stated, as their status as centers of industry and hosts for huge cultural events speak for themselves.
