#AshevilleLookingForward – Hanging out at Asheville’s Breweries

As we look forward to our “new normal” once the world is in a better place, we have asked our staff about the favorite things they are looking forward to. One of those activities is visiting the many wonderful breweries and tap rooms in our town.

Staff Picks-Favorite Asheville Brewery:

Asheville’s micro-brew beer culture started in 1994 when a retired engineer moved to Asheville to fly fish, enjoy the mountains, and start a hobby, making microbrew beer. Oscar Wong started Highland Brewing when Asheville’s downtown was mostly closed and quiet. Asheville Brewing Company and Green Man Brewery were soon opened to help kick-start a now vibrant downtown and growing beer economy.
Now, according to, Asheville boasts more breweries per capita than any other U.S. City. Asheville is the four-time winner of the annual Beer City USA poll previously hosted by Charlie Papazian with the
Today there are more breweries than you can count. With numerous tap rooms and tasting bars, loads of annual festivals, many options of brewery tours by foot or van, 5k beer runs, and several off-shoots of beer including ice cream, dog biscuits and soap, we truly are living up to our name!

This is a great place if you have never zip lined. The guys made it safe and comfortable and lots of fun. Beware the corny jokes.

My son and I went ziplining, we did the short course. Though we were both terrified - it was extremely exhilarating! Brandon and Briggs were awesome instructors, and were also patient with me with each line as I was not able to get the courage to lift my feet to go 😳(I was too scared). Highly recommend visiting!
