Fortunately we arrived by bus during RBWG 2014, because this place is a bit far from Asheville, although it’s pretty close to the airport, in case you’re flying in. Head brewer, a youngster, gave a great customized tour. Small handful of beers on tap, and a few other things in cans. Interesting enough.

The Oskar Blues brewery is in a large modern warehouse but has a surprisingly cosy tasting room upstairs and a small shop. We had a very interesting tour led by the head brewer, Noah. I’d never seen a canning machine before and found it fascinating! (Visited 7 February 2014 on the RBWG bus tour).

This is a large brew house with a welcoming tap room beyond the can archway and up the stairs. There were a couple one-off beers on tap and several beers for taking home (or drinking there).

Located in an industrial warehouse just north of downtown Brevard. Once you find the place, the signage was pretty good. They tap room, well it was more like a tap loft, is located in an upstairs part that overlooks the brewery. I loved the view from there and I now realize that my next apartment needs to be in a brewery. They had a 8 on tap with the seven year rounders as well as a special beer specific to the brewery. The outside area had space for picnic tables and brand-specific cornhole. Other than wishing they had more special beers, or was a pretty cool experience.

Visited during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. I quite enjoyed the visit here, mostly because of the thorough tour of the facility. The guide was friendly and informative and I left feeling like I had really seen everything and had all questions answered. The tap room is funky and the staff was attentive. The only downside was that the bar serves primarily the core range of OB beers, with only two non-core beers on tap. (Of all the breweries visited around Asheville during the weekend, this one easily had the most limited selection.) Fun place to for a stop but I wouldn’t say it’s a must-visit if you’re doing a tour of Asheville and its surroundings.

> A fun tasting room inside a mega capacity brewhouse
>> Huge space here slotted to distribute all over the east coast. Guided tours available, reminded me a bit of Rogue on the inside with the elevated tasting room. Decent amount of house beers on tap, but only two were special editions; everything else was their normal line up. Staff was awesome- very friendly. Had cans for sale to go and drink on premise, some of them were new to me but the quality was suspect. Overall, if you are on a group tour and want to learn about the brewing process, this is a fun stop. But if you are after new beers and really good beers, I’d skip.

I really like what they’ve done with the bar area. It’s upstairs overlooking the wide open brewing and canning operation. They’ve spruced up the concrete space with various decorations made out of cans. The bartender was so nice and obviously passionate about the product and excited to be part of the opening of a major brewery in NC. There was nothing rare on tap, but 7 of their solid offerings were available. Cans are available to go as well at a marginally cheaper price than elsewhere around the area. There’s a lot of cool swag available as well. I really enjoyed my visit here.

Of the big 3 breweries coming to the area, this is the first to open, and it’s clear it’s because they’re after function and not style. This is very much a tasting room stuck inside a large production brewery. The tasting room is located in a loft above the brewery offices. Excellent view of the brewery, and the tasting area itself is very comfortable. Round bar, cheap tables, nice vibe. There is a stage for music, which I imagine reverberates nicely around the brewery. 7 standards on tap with a rotating "special" tap, which was Dry Hopped Dales on my visit. Cans to go are on the expensive side but draft prices are solid. Bartender was very nice. I’m not sure it really counts as a patio, but there are some tables outside.

My comments are in line with jtclockwork’s. The brewery itself is fantastic. Oskar Blues have invested a lot of money into the NC operation, and it was a great treat to tour the brewing facility. The taproom’s welcoming, and the staff were all too happy to provide sample pours. Unfortunately, not much beyond the core range was available on tap. There’s also a gift shop inside the bar with plenty of swag available. Overall, a great stop.

This was our first stop on the RBWG bus tour and it was a good one. A bit of a drive outside of Asheville, it’s a big warehouse in an industrial area. There’s a large patio under a pavilion on one corner of the building, and a door leads to some stairs up to a mezzanine tasting room. The taps have all the standard OB beers, as well as two special ones. Cans of everything were for sale, as well as one I’d never had and their root beer. Big barrels of peanuts are out there for the taking. Prices are good overall, and the staff is accommodating and friendly. Cool place- just wish it was a bit more convenient to Asheville.
