Asheville Breweries and Brewpubs

Highland Brewing
12 Old Charlotte Highway
Asheville, NC 28803-9419
Phone: (828) 299-3370
Highland Brewing Company rolled out its first beer kegs in December 1994. Built almost entirely of retrofitted dairy equipment, our original brewery in downtown Asheville could produce up to 6,500 barrels of beer per year. At the new location we now have capacity to brew 20,000 barrels annually.
Green Man Brewing
23 Buxton Avenue
Asheville, NC 28801-4019
Phone: (828) 252-5502
Green Man Brewing: Known here by its nickname, Dirty Jack’s, it’s the brewing arm of the popular Jack of the Wood English/Irish pub. Green Man has become a beer geek’s haven, with a small bar and a handful of tables. A big-screen TV is constantly playing international soccer matches. Most of the brews have a British vibe, such as pale ale. And be sure to ask for today’s cask-conditioned selection.



Asheville Pizza  and Asheville Brewing Company
675 Merrimon Avenue
Asheville, NC 28804
These sister operations share the same lineups of house brews and food (pizza, burgers, sandwiches, etc.)  But each has its own style. Asheville Pizza and Brewing features a second-run movie theater, game room and family atmosphere while Asheville Brewing includes a big patio, a liquor bar and a more adult theme. Flagship beers are Shiva IPA and Ninja Porter.

French Broad Brewing Company
101 Fairview Road
Asheville, NC 28803-4301
Phone:(828) 277-0222
French Broad Brewing Company is nestled in the mountains of Asheville
 near Biltmore Village. It combines a working microbrewery with a small tasting room featuring live music. Musicians play on a stage just a few feet from the brewing tanks, while visitors watch from a handful of small tables. Trains frequently roll by on nearby tracks. The music is free, but be sure to leave a tip for the players. The beers have a European edge such as the creamy Gateway Kolsch and 13 Rebels Extra Special Bitter.


Craggie Brewing Company
197 Hilliard Avenue
Asheville, NC 28801-3616
Phone:(828) 254-0360
In November 2007, Bill Drew and Jonathan Cort partnered to create Craggie Brewing Company, a hometown brewery, with passion for quality craft beer and strong community values. During the Summer of 2009, the co-owners asked Simone Seitz to join the Craggie family. In November 2009, two years after its inception, Craggie (or two guys, a girl and a brewery, as Bill refers to the team) opened its doors for business with significant local support and, some damn good beer!


Lexington Avenue Brewing - The LAB
PO Box 7303
Asheville, NC 28802
Phone: 828-252-0212
Good times await in Asheville at the Lexington Avenue Brewery. Relax a while on our open air patio. Enjoy a craft beer and an incredible meal at the 92’ curving bar or a custom built dining table. Our Historic Downtown Asheville building provides the perfect atmosphere. Brewer Ben Pierson has created a stellar line up of unfiltered, naturally carbonated, additive free beers in our in-house brewery.

Oyster House Brewing Co./Lobster Trap Restaurant
35 Patton St
Asheville, NC 28801
Phone: 828-350-0505
Asheville’s smallest brewery, it’s tucked inside the Lobster Trap restaurant on busy Patton Avenue. This is primarily a restaurant, so seafood lovers should grab something to eat (there’s an impressive selection of oysters, which match up well with the house beers). The flagship brew is Oyster Stout. Yes, oysters are used in the brewing, leaving behind a slightly salty taste.

Pisgah Brewing Co
150 Eastside Business Park
Black Mountain, NC 28711
Phone: 828-582-7909
Pisgah Brewing Company is located in Black Mountain, NC about 10 miles east of Asheville. We specialize in brewing hand crafted certified organic beer. Please browse around to learn about our beer, where to find it and what it means to be certified organic.
Wedge Brewing Co
129-B Roberts St
Asheville, NC 28801
Phone: 828-505-2792
Based in an old warehouse in Asheville’s French Broad River Arts District, the Wedge squeezes much use from a small space. Most of the room is occupied by brewing tanks, but there’s also a bar and tasting room. Many visitors take a seat on the old loading dock outside or at an inviting patio. Asheville’s railroad yard is just a few feet away, and trains often rumble by, adding to the ambiance. Flagship beers include Payne’s Pale and the mysterious (and powerful) Golem Belgian Ale.
