I frequent Hillman for lunch and a cider or ginger beer.... Not a beer drinker myself, but have heard great things! A great spot with outdoor seating, open air set up. Pet friendly. Sun shades for outdoors. Creekside seating

We found Hillman ESB offered on tap at our hotel. I like dark IPAs and this beer does it for me. We stopped by to get some to take home. They have these cool 32 oz cans that the fill and seal right out of...the tap. They were much handier to handle than big growler jugs. The staff there was great, helping us capture our treasure to savor at home!More

Fantastic beer selection, and everything our party of 6 tried, we loved. Friendly staff. Plenty of shady outdoor seating. Wifi. Don’t miss the to-go items in the big cooler before you leave.

Great drinks, really good food and a beautiful laid-back spot along creek at back to enjoy it all! My daughter and I enjoyed after day on the river. Highly recommend the pretzels.

This is a great little brewery away from the glut of breweries in The South Slope but worth a drive. It also has a good restaurant.

Parking is available both free and pay. Large seating outdoor/ indoor. Dog friendly, good selection of beers, you have to stand in line to order there is no staff walking the floor. Food was really good. The falafel wrap, French fries, pretzels were YUM. I...didn't care for the beer cheese or pimento. We liked it so much we went twice while in the area.More

This was our first stop upon arriving in Asheville NC and it turned out to be fantastic. For the most part, they’ve applied the CDC recommendations whereas if you’re vaccinated, no mask is required and the team there are friendly and helpful. Noticing I was...looking over micro-brew locations, the waitress located and provided me the last Field Guide to Breweries in and around Asheville NC showing where all of the local brew places were. We tried beer flights encompassing four brewery samples and also had dinner here. I personally had the Cuban sandwich and fries, both being quite yummy.More

Yes, parking is available in two small lots owned by the brewery (probably 30 - 40 cars total). It is well worth the trip out of the estate because their beers are pretty boring compared to those nearby. Also check out... More
