Description: 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 Dedicated to Excellence and Committed 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.

“Nice place”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Wife and I went here on date night. Nice place, in old Frasiers building. Had the artichoke flatbread pizza. Very tasty. Good crunch, toppings fresh and plentiful. Wife had burger. First was burnt, Second was perfect. I like the small trial "flight"of 4 beers. Try out the different brews. I would come back.

“Looking forward to our next visit!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We love coming to Boondocks for the best burgers and beer. I always think I'm going to try something else on the menu but always go with the Tumbleweed or Horseradish burger. Why mess with a good thing?? We have never been disappointed with the beer choices either. Looking forward to our next visit in a couple of days. The only thing I would change is that it was a bit chilly in there last night. Thanks for a great restaurant!

Thank you for taking the time to review us and for your kind words and continued support. The temp certainly took a turn down yesterday and I apologize if the heat was not set high enough to offset the chill. With the large open space and the large windows that we have it is sometimes a challenge to get a consistent temperature throughout the entire restaurant, especially when someone forgets to close the door behind them.

If at any time you think it is too cool or hot, please let your server know so they can alert the manager on duty. We will do our best to resolve the situation and you are always welcome to ask to be seated elsewhere if you are too close to a window or the door.

Thanks again for dining with us and for taking the time to post a review.

Regards,
Gary
Owner/head Brewer

“Great Dinner with Friends”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We enjoyed a great meal last night at Boondocks. My husband's steak was cooked just the way he ordered and to his surprise it included a small salad, and choice of 2 vegetables. He said the mashed potatoes were real and the string beans were very fresh. I ordered the stuffed mushrooms - excellent. we llok forward to going back the next time we are in WJ.

“Never served!”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

We went on a very cold windy night, so they were not very busy. We were seated and waited, waited, ... People passed by, never once acknowledging we were even there. We stood up, put our coats on, and still no one came over. So we left and ate at a newly opened competitor. So glad we did, the other place was great!
