About Us

At Charleston Brews Cruise, we believe we have a larger social responsibility to contribute to and support all of Charleston’s local, independent businesses and producers.

Our mission is to participate and help grow Charleston’s local economy through the promotion of the city’s local breweries and beer culture, and we keep “local first” in mind in all of our business decisions. We hope we can share some of Charleston’s local flare with you on the next Brews Cruise!

Brent Horner has spent most of his life in Western North Carolina and has been in the guiding and tourism business for nearly ten years. He graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC with degrees in recreational management and business administration. After graduation Brent moved to Maui, HI, where he led kayak tours and learned how to surf. He returned to the mainland in 2005 and started Brown Dog Adventure Tours in Asheville, NC, a guide company that encouraged visitors to explore the mountains through hiking, mountain biking, backpacking and fly fishing. Now, eager to move back to a city with sand, sun, waves and great local beer, Brent decided to make South Carolina’s lowcountry his new home and open Charleston Brews Cruise.
