WHAT IS FENDER BENDER?
Fender Bender is Asheville’s most unsophisticated brewery tour. We hand-pick the best local bands and take you to three amazing breweries where you and your friends can grab a pint and enjoy the region’s best local suds.
Experience three of LaZoom’s favorite breweries: Highland Brewing, Asheville’s first brewery, The Wedge, a local favorite, and New Belgium Brewing, one of America’s largest breweries east coast taproom.
Our experienced hosts will give you their recommendations of their favorite beers at each stop, and might even join you in a pint!

The Fine Print
We have a ticketless system. We use a roster at the bus so all we need when you arrive is your name to be checked in. Seating is first come, first served. We recommend arriving early if you have a preference for seating. Please reach out to us ahead of time if you require special accommodations.
If passengers are late to boarding, their tickets may be released and sold to another party at time of departure. If passengers are intoxicated at boarding, they will not be allowed to board and a refund will not be given. Similarly, any passengers under 21 will not be allowed on to the bus and no refund will be given.
We do not have passenger parking at LaZoom Room and therefore recommend arriving downtown 30 minutes before your scheduled tour time to find parking. Additionally, Uber or Lyft is always a great option to avoid having to find parking.
Paid Parking Options:
The paid lot surrounding LaZoom Room (we do not manage this lot), street meters, the Aloft Hotel or the garage up one block on Biltmore Ave.
What to Bring:
You’re welcome to bring snacks or beverages on the bus. Only beer and wine purchased from The LaZoom Room are allowed on board. We do not allow outside alcoholic beverages on the bus. The LaZoom Room has a great selection of beer, wine, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase to enjoy there or take on the bus. Check out our menu here.
Passengers over 21 need ID if they intend to drink alcoholic beverages on the bus.
Full refund if cancelled outside of 48 hours from the start of the tour. Inside of 48 hours no refund will be offered.
In the rare event that we have fewer than 9 passengers registered for a tour, we may have to cancel it. We do our best to make this decision at least 2 hours before departure time. All passengers will be notified of any cancellations via text, email and telephone. For this reason, please make sure that you have provided us with a good telephone number to reach you on the day of your tour.
