Sierra Nevada Brewing Company-Mills River, North Carolina

The restaurant:

Sierra Nevada has a brewery located in Mills River North Carolina, just south of Asheville. The brewery is huge and is located on a beautiful piece of property. The restaurant has both an inside and outside area to eat and drink. A large bar is the centerpiece of the inside portion of the restaurant. Outside there is a seasonal bar, lots of seating, Adirondack chairs, cornhole boards, an organic garden that you can tour, restrooms, and a large fire pit. Both the inside and outside areas were very clean, nicely decorated and very appealing. One of the things we liked the best about this restaurant is that their food is designed to showcase local farmers.

The food:

Sierra Nevada’s Tap Room is a small plate style restaurant. We ordered the duck fat fries, pretzels with pimento beer cheese, and for dessert we had the Bigfoot Brownie. All of the food was delicious and paired wonderfully with the beer!

The beer:

As you may expect there are quite a few delicious beers on tap, most of them made on site. I ordered the Summer Fest in a 32-ounce glass. Ashley tried two beers, the Otra Vez and the Kellerweis. I found the Summer Fest to be a great summer beer, so much so that I ordered a second one. Ashley enjoyed both of her beers equally.


Overall we were extremely pleased by our experience at Sierra Nevada. We will absolutely go back the next time we’re in Asheville. There are tours available that we both want to take and we want to find out where the trail out back leads to. I highly recommend you give this place a try!
