  • Great place for day trip. A lot of drinking, eating, and music. Not really a place for kids. Food really good! And they had a truck with beer ice cream.
  • Try to go on tours Monday thru Friday because they try to shut down the line from Friday til Sunday. But it was still nice to visit and the restaurant was good. Try the wings with hot sauce.
  • Really nice menu and the beer is fantastic! One of the places to hit when you are in Asheville, NC!
  • We took both the free & $12 tours with Kara as guide for both. The free 1 is adequate, including several beer tastings. Of course the paid 1 is more in depth with many more tastings & extra insights.
  • A varied - maybe eclectic - menu designed for sharing with of course a lot of beer choices. Wife & I split shrimp & grits & pretzels with beer cheese. Pretty good.
  • Amazing place!
  • Someone keeps merging this with the SN Taproom, which is incorrect. The brewery opened in 2012, whereas the Taproom opened over 3 years later in 2015.
  • Excellent menu. Trout was the best I've ever had!
  • Band playing and beer with lime and Blue agave!!! What more could you want!
  • If youre directed to park behind the brewery, its best to take a detour to another brewery (Bold Rock Cidery) in the AVL area and return on another day, as this place is def too crowded at times.
  • The Hazy Little Thing pairs well with the carolina bison steak. In fact, its currently the best item on an awesome, always changing menu!
  • The 20-barrel Kaspar Schulz pilot brewing system, that you see on your right as you enter, is utilized by SN to brew their one-time-only heartbreakers and audition style brews.
  • If you wish to avoid long lines and a 2 hour wait for a table, arrive as they open on Saturday/Sunday. The crowd here is 95%+ tourists on weekends, so it def gets too crowded at times.
  • Duck fat fries and buffalo wings!
  • Try the food, try the beer, check out the visitors hall tour (its self guided) and definitely stop by for any of the bands. All around a great place for dates!
  • If youre interested in limited-release, barrel-aged beers unavailable anywhere else in the world, inquire about SNs Alpha Hop Society. Access to special tours & events is included with membership.
  • Most underrated item on the menu is espresso. Pulled from a $35,000 handmade Italian machine, these shots remind me of time spent in Paris and Prague.
  • Their custom machine for filling growlers, attention to detail in design & materials, and their $35,000 La Marzocco espresso machine illustrate the myriad ways in which SN obsesses over every detail.
  • Great selection of Sierra Nevada beer readily available along with some only available here!
  • For an intimate, 3 hour tour into the depths of what makes Sierra Nevada tick, check out the Beer Geek tour. Well worth the modest cost. T-shirt and growler included with ticket.
