I had a hell of a time getting here, but Bryson City was easy enough to navigate once I managed to get there. Located in a building with a few businesses with a parking lot on the side. It looks like it could get crowded. Lots of raw wood in a very large open space. Long bar. Very comfortable. Lots of beers on tap with a couple Trail Magic bottles to go. The beers were all solid with a few standouts. Nice staff and I had a lengthy conversation with one of them, which was cool. Prices can get pricy on samples. Overall, Iím glad I made the trek.

Nice place with a winter bar area that is much smaller than the regular bar. Very nice selection service was good. This is a must go to when coming through this area. Always remember you can bring food into the brewery and eat. If you go next door the selection of beer is not as good and the beer is higher. Not my last time here.

I think this was my favorite place I went on my trip to Asheville. Great little place in the middle of nowhere. Laid back place with quite a few of their own brews on tap. No AC, but good air flow. And a huge version of Jenga thatís really awesome to watch.

Reviewing from notes 12/22/2011 - Newer building. The tap room is a good size, plenty of room to expand and add tables later, as itís just a bar at this point. Lots of wood, bar is modeled on the front of a fishing shack with the brewing equipment visible through the large picture windows of the "shack". The room is like the courtyard between other shacks with a running balcony between buildings. Bluegrass plays as gentle background noise. The taps are your typical standards with a couple nice seasonals and solid craft guess taps. They could handle 18 taps, though they had only 15 available when we visited. The bartender was attentive w/o hovering. They have tasters, 8 oz, 16 oz, 20 oz, pitchers, and growlers. Prices are very reasonable, with a pint for $4.

stopped in 7/13/11.
i love the simplicity of this place... re-purposed industrial building.... lots of wood and concrete....but comfortable.
they had only 5 beers on tap...but they were all good. service was super friendly and willing to chat.
i love the $5 membership to join as they are in a dry county!

Seasonal Belgian Dirty Girl Golden Ale was really good but the Trail Magic Russian stout was amazing! This is a cool place to hang out after a day on the trail

The fact that thereís a place this awesome in a town as small as Bryson City says the craft beer movement is going in the right direction. The intereior made it seem like we were at an outdoor bar set in a tropical resort. They had 10 things on tap with the top beers being the pale ales and the Sticky dog stout. I was surprised how many people were there on a Thursday before Christmas. I canít wait to stop here again.

Yet another interestingly rejuvenated location for an American brewery Ö an old Quonset hut apartment/industrial space in a weird little town. Nice beers, friendly staff, huge TV. I could hang here. (#557)

Really cool brewpub in the middle of Bryson City. If you are in this area for vacation, be sure to go here. Not really sure what to give all these ratings...selection? I mean, they have their own beers on tap...The staff is super friendly. There are games you can play. It is a huge open warehouse. Really cool interesting place to drop in and drink several pints.. Will pour growlers too.
