First of all, great value as it is a free tour. The tour is fun because the tour guides make it fun including the ‘must do’ curvy slide. Maggie was our guide and she was awesome. There are three tasting stops along the way to...More

Another huge Asheville brewery. Really solid beers. Try the Kriek if you’re into sours and during the fall months, the atomic pumpkin is delicious. Tons of outdoor space with picnic tables and a huge field for lounging or throwing a ball around. Right on the...More

Ross was an excellent tour guide. Very entertaining and knowledgeable. It’s an 1 1/2 Hour tour but goes by so quickly. You learn a lot about the company and get to sample a lot of beer. A must go to while visiting here.

My husband and I happened upon this place on Asheville day and spent a few hours enjoying a brass band and delicious beer in the beautiful beer garden. I’m not a huge beer fan, but enjoyed the cider. My husband enjoyed everything he tasted.

I continue to try new things at breweries but when it came down to it I had to go back and stick with the 1554 porter here. Everything else I tried was too hoppy for me. Very cool place though. Wish they had more porter/stout...More

They have hard cider, typically. I don’t believe they offer wine, but I could be wrong.
