Beer lovers will be thrilled to discover that there’s a local Wilmington tour designed just for them – the Port City Brew Bus. Open to visitors who are 21 and older, this tour bus heads to three of the area’s top breweries where patrons can enjoy a tour, see what’s on tap, and of course, sample a flight or two (or three) of some of the Cape Fear region’s homegrown brews.

The tour is led by an experienced craft beer expert, who works hand in hand with each of the breweries to introduce the beers to tour-goers. Patrons will learn all about the brewery process before, during and after each stop, and will enjoy plenty of hefty samples along the way. Pretzels, water and snacks are available en route to whet a beer appetite, and multiple stops are made both along the downtown area and in central Wilmington along Market Street and Oleander Drive. Private tours and special events can be scheduled as well, ensuring larger brew-loving parties can be accommodated. For a happy tour of Wilmington that’s filled with flavor and good times, beer lovers will want to plan a long afternoon onboard the educational but perfectly fun Port City Brew Bus.

Founded in 1898, the museum is the oldest operating museum in North Carolina, and welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Distinguished for its modern structure and Market Street location in the middle of Downtown Wilmington, the museum has a wealth of information on the history, wildlife and culture of the 50-square mile Cape Fear region. More than 50 thousand exhibits can be found within its brick and concrete walls, and patrons of all ages will surely find an exhibit or two that is engrossing, educational, and sheds new light on this essential coastal Carolina region.
