Barley and Hops Tour
A Pub Crawl with a Local Expert
Join our local expert guide for a tasting tour of three downtown breweries: Iron Hand, Braided River, and Old Majestic. At each stop guests will get two 4 oz taster glasses of beers specially selected to show off a variety of beer types. Come see the brewing process from grain to tap. This tour is a great way to learn more about the rich history and variety of brewing.
In 1880 there were 2800 American Breweries, producing a wide variety of lagers, ales, stouts, and more. By the late-20th century the industry had dwindled to a handful of breweries as corporate take-overs turned Americans into light-beer-slurping minions. But today’s microbreweries are producing a wide array of pilsners, ales, IPAs, and more! Mobile’s unique microbreweries welcome our guests to sample the brews and get a behind-the-scenes look at the brewing process.
