Brewery tours

Pura Vida Adventures is excited to announce that we will be adding brewery tours to our 2013 offerings. The tours will consist of visits to the Pisgah Tavern, Oskar Blues Brewery, and Brevard Brewing Company.

Tours will start with participants being picked up from their Brevard accommodations and brought to Pisgah Tavern, where they can sample various regional beers.  Although not a brewery, Pisgah Tavern has a wide selection of various regional beers. In addition, Pisgah Tavern is located at The Hub bikes and outdoor shop. “Although not a brewery we decided to include Pisgah Tavern on the tour because of its wide variety of regional microbrews and its unique status as a bicycle shop, outdoor store, and bar,” says Joe Moerschbaecher, Pura Vida Adventures owner.

The second stop will be at Oskar Blues Brewery, currently the largest brewery in the Carolinas.  At Oskar Blues, participants will have the opportunity to take a tour of the brewery and learn more about the history of the company.  After finishing the tour, participants will be able to sample a pint or flight of beers at the Oskar Blues Tasty Weasel taproom.

Then, the tour will head to Brevard Brewing Company, located in downtown Brevard.  Here participants will have an opportunity to see how Brevard Brewing Company brews beer.  After completing the tour, participants may once again choose to have a pint or flight of beers at Brevard Brewing Company’s tasting room next to the brewery.

The tour will end with participants being provided with a ride back to their local accommodations.

Trips include tours of the breweries, two tastings at each brewery, and transportation. Beers can be purchased separately while at the bar or tasting rooms.  Cost is $40 a person for groups of 3 or less and $35 a person for groups of 4 or more. Tours run daily starting at 5 p.m. and end between 8 and 8:30 p.m.  Advanced reservations are highly recommended.  Email or call 772-579-0005 for more information or to book a tour.
