At the far end of the main drag in touristy Blowing Rock. Nice looking building, modern mountain rustic style I guess. Dark interior, deck upstairs. Beer selection is common flagship craft.

Spent a day in the mountains with my family, and after walking around the ’historic’ area of Blowing Rock, stopped in here for dinner. Sat out on the upper level patio. Good atmosphere out there, and the inside looked pleasant as well, albeit dark. The service was spot-on at this MM. This is the first non-hippy-run MM I think I have ever been to. Our order was taken speedily, and our food arrived promptly. Drinks were refilled, and beer came out fast. I knew it could happen. Not every MM had to have crappy service. I was pretty disappointed with the beer selection though. They had a couple Foothills, some Highland, some Olde Hickory, and Blue Moon. That was the extent. I ordered the OH Ruby Lager. Came out in a mason-jar which was a cool touch. As at all MMs I’ve been to, the food was fantastic. Never have I been disappointed by their food. I’d come back here for sure, but their tap list needs some revamping.

Don’t like the ambiance. Dark (in a bad way) and uncomfortable. No real "bartender" and very unattentive. Taps rotate, but they keep a decent selection (you can find atleast one brew you’d like). They like to keep the Brooklyn and Foothills beers on tap, so it depends on which one they have at the time. Beer is served out of mason jars most of the time. Meh. The Cosmic Karma pizza is damn good and if you can get it with a pint of Brooklyn Pennant Ale, all the better.

After hitting the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville, and not making too formidable a dent in their garrison of regional beers, we drifted into the Blowing Rock location. Hard to tell they were the same chain. Blowing Rock has a much more limited selection. The 8 taps consisted of 2 Foothills brews, 2 Sweetwaters, Guiness, and some other macro foolishness. Bottles were limited to mostly macros and a few regionals - one Duck-Rabbit. This is less hippie-ish than Asheville, as was to be expected. Servers seemed overwhelmed with a (small) full house, and though it was early Friday night they were out of a lot of things. The bill seemed a bit high for what we ate and drank. 2 beers, 1 house wine, 1 sandwich, 1 personal pizza, 1 salad = $40. Lackluster. I’ll try the Sixpence Pub around the corner next visit. Closes early - 9 during the week, 10 on the weekend.
