The Original Downtown Brewery Tour
Put on your walking shoes and come with us as we follow the flow of craft beer through the heart of Downtown Wilmington. Our friendly and informative guide will provide a narration about the history of brewing in the area, as well as highlight local landmarks and non-brewing historical tidbits.
Our first stop is Wilmington’s oldest brewery: Front Street Brewery, located in the heart of downtown. Here, depending on availability you may receive a behind-the-scenes look at what takes place during each step of the brewing process. Samples of flagship and seasonal microbrews may be included.
Then it’s back to the streets of downtown for the next stop: Ironclad Brewing, the newest brewery in the downtown scene. Drink in their gorgeous modern facility, as well as their two fine brews.
After the tour, you are free to continue exploring all that downtown Wilmington has to offer on your own, but we recommend sticking around for a splendid meal at the brewery’s award-winning restaurant. The original and best downtown Brewery tour in Wilmington departs from Front Street Brewery Monday – Thursday at 4 p.m. and lasts approx. 3 hours.
Bottle Shop Pub Crawl
Join us to experience the best of the worst! We’ll crawl through some of downtown Wilmington’s favorite dive bars, including Lula’s, Cape Fear Wine and Beer, and Goat and Compass. Become immersed in the varied and rich nightlife of one of the Carolina’s oldest cities with a maritime heritage- expect to rub elbows with sailors, gypsies, smugglers, and travelers alike.
Your friends will be so jealous, unless you invite them along! Bars vary depending on tour option chosen. Learn from the locals- there’s no better way! 21+ (obviously). Must present valid photo ID and sign our liability release waiver before tour begins.
