Several years in a row, Asheville has been named “Beer City” due to the number of micro-breweries.
Both New Belgium and Sierra Nevada (also known as the Disney World of breweries) are great places to socialize. However, be sure to also visit of few of the local breweries as well. The Hemporer IPA at New Belgium does smell like weed…like enough to make me gag. But I tasted it anyway and it tastes 100% better than it smells.
My favorites tend to be the ones that have great outdoor spaces, but you can’t go wrong with any of them. They all make great-tasting beer!
Greenman and Lexington Avenue Brewery
These pop up all of the time, but I definitely need to add Hi-Wire since they sponsor the Asheville adult soccer teams.
Twin Leaf because I like their glasses
