It’s a little tricky finding this place, but on Old US70, it’s in the industrial park across from the huge military graveyard. There are two very small signs hinting to their location. The brewery is through a very nondescript door, though once you step inside and hear music and smell tons of barley, you know you’re in the right place. The tasting room is on the left. The tasting room is minimalist... bar, taps, open floor and a spot for live music in the corner. Bartender was very friendly and let me try anything I wanted... and ALL of it was good. Sometimes dangerously good. He gave me five good sized samples and charged me for a pint, which was more than fair. About 12-15 Pisgah beers on tap at the time as well as a few guest taps from mostly local breweries. This is definitely, absolutely worth a trip out of your way. Original rating March 6, 2009
Update Sept. 11, 2013. I have been here many times since the original visit, and I have to say customer service is top notch, the ambiance definitely gets a bump because of how well they carve an awesome outdoor area out of a dump of an industrial park. And the beer is always top notch.

Nice place just damn hard to find if you use a gps, Trust me if you are going call for directions. Nice beer selection from them and a decent guest tap as well. Off the beaten path but worth the effort.

Great brewery location. Out in the middle of the mountains. If it is nice outside you’ll want to just grab a table and enjoy the weather. Pretty good beer that is apparently constantly rotating. Only one bartender for the entire place though, and while it was only a Thursday, the place was pretty packed for there to only be one guy. He was a good bartender though and kept us happy. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

Actually, this was a very nice brewery, for what it was. No food, no waitstaff, but the beer was quite good. It’s in this industrial area with no AC, so it was awfully hot. Very low-key and chill. Dog friendly, too.

Anazing place, full of friendly hippies and their admirers. Basically a storage locker with a bar. And a live music stage. And a festival surrounding it, at least on the day we visited. Beers were nothing short of miraculous. I could live here and die happy.

A decent brewpub in Black Mountain that doesn’t have a large selection and is in the middle of an industrial park, but is kind of cool otherwise. Pretty much your standard brewpub beers on draft with a couple of guest taps.

Amazing brewery. They’ve made a totally comfy spot in an industrial park complete with a multi-acre outdoor stage area, fire pit picnic tables etc. The beer selection at the tasting room is usually flowing with at least 15 of their top beers, alongside a few well chosen guest taps. There’s regularly a food vendor hanging somewhere on property. All pours are priced right and the music shows always sound amazing. A little slice of heaven up stream from Asheville. CASH ONLY but they do have an ATM.

drove all the way out here from cullowhee on 7/12/11.... man, was it disappointing. four of their own beers on tap plus five guest taps. unfortunately, i found myself drinking the guest beers because all of the house taps were meh. this is the first brewery i can safely say that i hate the atmosphere... not the location or the fact that it is in a grimy warehouse (or the shitty hours)... i hate the people here. they make me want to leave...

October 2011. Somewhat hard to find in a semi-abandoned industrial area, this place screams with "hippie squatter" vibe. Choose between the garage-like or gravel outdoor seating areas, or sidle up to the warehouse bar. On the day I visited there were 9 beers on tap. I liked 6 of them, with 3 either uninviting or in at least 1 case clearly off. Of the 6 I liked, I’d say 3 were good. I have a feeling this inconsistency is characteristic of this place, as everything else came across in an overly non-chalant way ... like we’re too busy being cool to offer really great service ... sometimes this can backfire as a business approach. That said, the place has some good potential, and at it’s best can be really fun. Offering the wide array of 9 beers they did alone was a step above so many places that carry crowd the micro/nano/brewpub market these days, so props for that alone. Wouldn’t mind checking out some live music here with more time to sample some different beers. (#549)
