The facility tour. Beer production is a point of pride in Asheville, and it is fascinating to see the equipment and science behind the beverages.
LOCAL SECRET (Shh!)
Utilize Sierra Nevada as an apres after a few hours of climbing or shredding bikes down at neighbor The Riveter.
Sierra Nevada Brewing’s tagline is “family owned, operated and argued over.” With this authentic approach to business, the brewery’s selection of Asheville for their HQ2 was cheered by the community, and the campus is a must-visit for any WNC vacation. It’s clear as soon as visitors turn off the roundabout and onto the approach road that the visit will be an experience. Drawing inspiration from the approach road to the Biltmore Estate (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted), Sierra Nevada’s driveway reveals a sprawling and world class facility… a veritable Promised Land for beer enthusiasts. Once on campus, visitors are treated to a food menu that is beautiful in its simplicity, optional facility tours, rotating taps, several bars, and several event venues that are utilized for concerts, weddings, corporate events, and other gatherings.
