This pedal-powered trolley takes you through the streets of downtown Asheville with a certified guide in the driver’s seat. It’s perfect for reunions, birthday celebrations, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and more! Whatever brings you to town, a ride with Pubcycle Asheville will be the highlight of your trip. Here are a few things to know before you go.
Experience Pubcycle Asheville
The Amazing Pubcycle offers two guided tours: a 1.5-hour Pub Tour and a 40-minute Nomad Tour. Pub Tours are $25 per person and include two short stops at local pubs like Pack’s Tavern, Foggy Mountain, Asheville Brewing, and Ben’s Tune Up. Non-stop Nomad Tours are only $15 per seat and show you the sights and sounds of Asheville in style. Both tours are BYOB (beer and wine) and a cooler and cups are available on board.
Note: Glass beer bottles are prohibited, but wine bottles and growlers are thick enough to bring. All drinks must be unopened when you arrive for your tour.
What To Bring
With more breweries per capita than anywhere else in the US, Asheville is a haven for beer lovers. Before you start your tour on The Amazing Pubcycle, we recommend stocking up on a few local brews that are available in cans. Guest favorites include:
- Asheville Brewing Shiva IPA: Asheville Brewing’s award-winning IPA is perfect for hop-lovers. It boasts a yummy grapefruit flavor and has a clean, bitter finish.
- Asheville Brewing Ninja Porter: Sweet raspberries, vanilla, and chocolate give this smooth milk porter a delicious mouth sensation.
- French Broad Köllsch: Faithful to the great German ales found in Köln, this brew features a refreshing crispness, sweet malt finish, and distinctive German hopping.
- Pisgah Pale Ale: Pisgah Pale is a perfect blend of rich, organic malts with whole-leaf Chinook and Nugget hops. A crisp, clean profile makes this beer one-of-a-kind.
