This place is huge and crazy busy. Staff were all extremely friendly. Plenty of the usual SN beers on tap and all beers were $5 for full pours. Definitely a good deal. Food is really good, but comes out very quickly. It's a small plates type format, so stuff just arrives one after the other so if you don't eat fast enough you're table is quickly overrun with food. They had only maybe 2 or 3 offerings that were not mainstream available, from what I could tell. So a little disappointed in that. Would have liked to be able to get something that was exclusive to the taproom only, or some experimental brews. Maybe it was just the timing of the visit.
Gift shop is nice and has beer to go but it is super expensive. Twenty bucks for 12 packs of Snow Pack??! I can go to pretty much any local store by me and get it for $15. And it will be just as fresh. Bombers of some offerings were available, but they were $20. Again overpriced. And again nothing really available that you can't get in any retail location. I think there were 2 that I'd never seen before but the styles didn't really appeal to me. SN is available in all 50 states I believe so just seeing all of the normal stuff is not that appealing of a reason to go visit for beer. The brewery being so close to my home state means that I routinely see stuff in store that is only 1 or 2 weeks old. It was a good experience and I can say that I've been, but probably won't make a second trip as there are so many other breweries in Asheville to visit. But this is definitely a beer wonderland.
