Boondocks Brewing Tap Room & Restaurant opened our doors on August 1, 2012 with a mission to provide a fresh, unique and engaging destination for residents as well as visitors to Ashe County. We are a locally owned and employee run small business that is Committed to Excellence and Dedicated to our Community. We are Ashe County's first and only commercially licensed Craft Beer Brewery and we brew small batches of hand crafted beers weekly. We have one of the State's best craft beer selections on tap and in bottles in addition to having our own beer on tap. In 2013 we added an outside dining area that locals call the "Boon Deck". In 2014 we opened our new "Brew Haus" just up the street to provide a venue for large parties, special occasions, offsite catering, corporate events and fund raisers in addition to providing much needed expansion space for our brewing operations.

Stopped in recently while tooling around in our Miata! Very nice and bar-e inside with a killer selection of beer. The food we had was not bad, but we only had a burger. Seemed like a good place to hang out for a while and imbibe a few. I say check it out if you are in the area. The... read more

We received our drinks and appetizer quickly. We waited at least 45 minutes for our food. All the servers kept walking by our table. When we received our hamburgers they were warm including the fries. My hamburger was very pink I only ate half. We then sat and waited for the ticket. I have been sick all evening! We should...

Boondocks caught our eye while walking down the street of quaint little West Jefferson. It was lunch time so we stopped. They were full except for the porch so we sat there. The porch was new looking & a very pleasant place to be, versus inside with crowd, TVs, bar, etc. The food is typical bar food. We ordered two... More

We are local to the area, so have eaten at Boondocks a number of times. Each time I come away disappointed with the service. The food is typical "pub" type food, they have a varied menu with lots to choose from. Stick to the sandwiches or burgers. On the plus side, they do a nice job lining up bands on... More

Anne, Thank you for posting your review. Service and attention to detail are something that we work hard at each day and it is disappointing to hear when we fall short. It is especially disappointing when we hear this from our "loyal locals" as you are the reason that we work as hard as we do. If our neighbors and... More

My husband and I were excited to sample the wares of this small-batch micro-brewery in downtown West Jefferson and try out their burger. We sampled the jalapeno bottle cap appetizer (do it if you like HEAT--there is ample plenty to share with 4 people for this one), ordered the special quiche of the day (artichoke with black olives and feta...

We ate here on our first night. The server kept our drinks full, which was a good thing since we had to wait an hour for fish and chips, a veggie burger, and regular burger. People who came in after us got their food before us. A bit pricey for sandwiches. Definitely wouldn't return.

After catching some of their beer at a local festival, I was excited to visit Boondocks 'Brewery'. I even had a empty growler with me. Staff were friendly although hurried as it was lunchtime.
