And now for a completely different kind of ride…

The “Band & Beer Bus Tour” has live music playing as the 21 and over passengers experience two of Asheville’s local breweries. While LaZoom’s other tours are full-on comedy, the Band & Beer Bus Tour is focused on being more “fun” than “funny.” The initial lineup will have some great local bands like the Roaring Lions, Empire Strikes Brass, Firecracker Jazz Band and Sugar and Spice rocking the bus. The tour MC entertains the riders with fun facts about the local beer scene as well as what it takes to make a few of the local amber nectar flavors that we’ve all come to love and celebrate.

If you love great music and incredible beer, this one-of-a-kind tour is a must!

Once everyone is back on the bus they can continue to enjoy their beer as they listen to the live music and look over parts of the city as the bus takes the scenic route to the next destination (allowing up to 30 minutes between breweries).
