Sometimes it seems that microbreweries have taken over the world, but that’s not such a bad thing. The rise of breweries across the country has also created the rise of brewery tours. It’s a great way to get the tastes of a new city, while supporting great local businesses.

Brewery tours and wine tours in Charleston are perfect for corporate outings and special events, bachelor/bachelorette weekends, reunions, and Charleston getaways.  GCT offers customizable private tours so you can pick the breweries or wineries that interest your party the most.
