  • Only bad part was that you can't order flights. Pork loin was awesome. The ambiance is relaxing and it is clean. They have a sitting room and a bar room.  more »
  • This is what I consider the perfect brewery. They always have a large selection of beers, including some new ones and innovative ones. It is really a tasting room. You can bring food in, if you want. ...  more »
  • Quaint little place. Only the green room was opened when we were there. Good beer! And I don’t drink beer.  more »

  • This brewery's brews are always good. The taproom is roomy with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. We sat outdoors with our puppies, and enjoyed the view of the trains and Depot. Very comfortable. The bartender was exceptional, just a really nice guy. Thete's no food served, but some local restaurants deliver to the brewery, ask the bartender. Will be back.
  • First came here back in their opening month in 2011. They've put in a lot of work and the place looks fantastic. The beer is awesome as always, and I can't wait to see what they have planned in the future. If you're passing through or staying in/near Bryson City, be sure to stop by and have a pint or two. Bar staff is excellent and knowledgeable and the space is comfortable and interesting. One of my favorite spots in Western NC.
  • Really nice place. Beer and food were all delicious. Large selection of beer and thankfully they let you sample it. I somehow left my wallet here and the staff was honest enough to keep it until I called in a panic the next day and it was returned to me without a single dollar missing. Thank you again!
  • They had a wide variety of beers from which to choose. From a spruce beer that tasted like a Christmas tree to passion fruit beer. Can't put my finger on it, but something seemed to be missing from their beer. The place smelled like urine, but it looked like they were renovating. This brewery has a lot of potential and I look forward to trying them again soon.
  • Good variety of beer, all amazing aroma and taste. The trail 15 is easily one of the best.
