About
We brewed our first batch of beer in 1980 in Chico, California, the lush forests of North Carolina far from our mind. Over three decades, folks tried our bold beers and deemed them fit for friends across the country. In time a second brewery became the wisest, most sustainable way to send fresh beer to the farthest reaches. Today you can venture inside our Mills River brewery to trace our history as a craft beer pioneer and see first-hand our drive to make flavorful beer the status quo. Cruise up our wooded driveway, park under a solar-panel canopy, and head behind the scenes with us. Our tours fill up quickly! You must make reservations online for all tours except the Guided Tasting and the self-guided Visitor Corridor. Click below to check availability and book your tour. Please feel free to contact our Tour Desk before your visit if you have any questions about our tour programs or policies.

The grounds are beautiful. The outdoor patio is dog friendly. Tables are mostly German style long tables. I came around 3, was able to find a place at the bar. My only three issues: I was alone with my dog and there is no place to order drinks outside. So I was forced to leave her in the car and go inside. I sat down at the bar and the bartender told me to go to the line for service since I wasn’t eating. I had to specifically ask him if I was not allowed to sit at the bar and have a beer. Lastly, the food section wasn’t very good. Mostly just pizza, a burger, a Reuben and odd apps. I ended up getting an flight and leaving.

Food was good but not great and overpriced for what you got. Very loud and hard to hear our conversation. Would not go back again.

Whether you are able to coordinate an official tour or not....don't miss out on an opportunity to visit Sierra Nevada in Asheville. Simply walking around the front to see into the operations is impressive. The taproom/restaurant are worth the trip alone! The food was incredible and the vibe/energy of the space is intoxicating just like the product : )

Another beer 🍻 stop 🛑! This place is amazing 🤩! The grounds are expensive and well kept. The beer 🍺 isjust what you need and there is something for everyone. Tours are suspended for now but the restaurant is out. Just make sure you call for reservations if you want to eat inside.

Only got to spend about 30 minutes here due to flight time, but so worth it. Best vibe I've ever had at a brewery. This place kills it. I will be back for live music. The fresh beer is good, too!

Worked in the garden all day and didn't want to cook. Ordered the "Audition" salad with a side of chicken for take-out. All I can say is wow. The flavors and vegetable combinations along with that insanely yummy dressing was exactly what I needed. Having a glass of Hazy Little Thing IPA probably helped too. Organic, eco-friendly, yummy food, and wonderful beer! What else could you ask for? (Living in Mills River also helps.)

We were not able to tour the facility due to Covid. However, we ordered takeout food and beer and the staff member got us cups and utensils so we could take our food to a park a mile away. The food and beer was delicious! We went back for a growler of our favorite!

Julia and Amy connected friends and family from all over the U.S. to do a virtual tasting for a birthday. The content, presentation and beer was great!

The setting is amazing. You feel like you’re in the woods, even though the airport is just over the hill. Architecturally, the entire facility is very impressive. We took the basic 45 minute (free) tour this trip and we saw every step of the brewing process. We’ll going back for a more in-depth trip next time we’re in Asheville. The restaurant offers a great menu, and you have the opportunity to purchase many brews that aren’t available otherwise. A definite “must-do“ experience if you’re at all into beer.

I am so glad I took the time to go here and do the 1.5 hour tour. Our guide Rachel did a great job! It was so interesting on how this all started. Going into the hop room was the best! The aroma was wonderful! I hope to go back when I am in the area again and bring my husband too!
