Stay updated on the progress of our new brewery.

This area is pastoral, quiet, and only a 20-minute drive from the city of Asheville, NC. The site is set on approximately 190 acres on the French Broad River—property purchased from a family that had owned and cared for it over the last 100 years. The majority of the site will be kept wild and intact; we have plans to develop a trail system with river access. At a minimum, the new brewery will be LEED certified, with a focus on alternative energy, environmentally conscious construction, reforestation and river quality monitoring and protection.

Whether in Chico, CA, or Mills River, NC, we’re dedicated to creating a brewery, community and experience rooted in quality and stewardship and supportive of the communities that sustain us.
