From the Source:
My name is Evan Rosenberg and I am a Certified Cicerone®, or beer expert and enthusiast, living in Asheville, NC. I am the owner and operator of Beer City Brewery Tours. I relocated to Asheville, NC with my wife Patricia from Chicago, IL in 2014 on a quest to explore Beer City USA. I am fluent in the language of beer. I have worked in the beer and service industry for most of my life. One of my favorite activities is talking about beer while enjoying a pint.
I have been proudly leading Asheville brewery tours at fabulous independent breweries since 2016. I strive to build long lasting relationships through my tours as well as through my travel to other beer destinations. I have explored hundreds of breweries from coast to coast and internationally gaining valuable beer knowledge along the way. I have been privileged enough to have worked with some of the best beer minds in Asheville and the world.
My main goal for this tour is to show you my beer backyard. Along the way I will discuss the different stories of beer.

Where do we park?
Driving is not recommended as parking is quite sparse and I want you to be able to hang loose. If you are staying downtown it is much easier to walk. This is a walking tour after all. There are some free street parking spots as well as app based parking lots in the area. If you must drive, please allow extra time for circling the block, downloading an app and paying. Uber and Lyft are fantastic options as well.
Below are some resources to make your parking experience easier:
Can I bring my kids or dogs?
Any non-drinkers are $15 to join the experience but furry friends are welcome outside only. Dogs unfortunately are not allowed in any of the brewhouses.
Is there food in the area?
Certainly. There are great options for pizza, bbq, cheese and meat boxes and so many food trucks all over South Slope Asheville. I am happy to help you find yourself a delicious snack or meal afterwards. Feel free and bring any food you would like on the tour as well.
How many samples do we get?
That varies but you will definitely will be enjoying at least 10 samples (on the 3 hour tour) of differing styles along the way. The fun part is that those samples always change depending on what beers are inspiring me that day.
