The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company East Coast campus in Mills River is the Biltmore House of craft breweries. Driving up pathway to the sprawling campus, you’ll likely feel that this place is something special. Take the tour (book in advance, they fill up quickly) and these thoughts will be confirmed. If you can’t reserve a spot for the guided tours, the facility is open to do your own self-guided tour.
Once you’re finished with the tour, you’d be remiss not to visit the adjoining taproom where all Sierra Nevada’s beers are available. The restaurant, one of Asheville’s busiest according to our tour guide, serves some pretty spectacular food as well. The gorgonzola and apple butter flatbread was delectable as well as the smoked corn salad. If you go for the beer, stay for the fare inside the taproom. You won’t be disappointed.
