continuing our beer tour of asheville area. Pisgah was tricky to find for our GPS, but not for us. tap room is in industrial park area right off RT 70. Very slow at around 2:30 pm today. Bartender was not very helpful or full of information, but we didn't really ask many questions. Beer was very good I had a smoked porter and my husband a pumpkin ale and we shared the belgian triple, all very good. No food except may chips for sale, looks like they do alot of live music. all in all very pleasant if quiet!

Located just off the highway in Black Mountain - pretty big and airy space. They host a lot of live acts here and theres also a big outdoor seating area.

Expect a full offering of Pisgah stuff, a few random guests, and occasionally bottles for sale. Tap prices are very cheap, even for the higher end stuff. Definitely a favorite stop in the Asheville area - i prefer the early afternoon vibe to the jam band wookfest that comes out at night.

This brewery is to be taken seriously, being smack dab in the middle of the craft beer revolution in WNC, this brewery is worth visiting and you better have some empty growlers handy. 1oo% organic beer, live music, animal friendly, pretty much does everything a microbrewery should be doing.

I had been looking forward to making the pilgrimage to Pisgah for a long time and it sure did not disappoint. The brewery itself is kind of in an interesting area in the middle of an industrial park. It had me wondering if I was in the right place. However, as soon as I stepped foot into the taproom, I knew I was exactly where I wanted to be. It’s a big open area with a decently sized bar and a stage for live music. There are also some picnic tables outside in a courtyard area which is a really nice place to sit on a nice day. The real treat here is the beer. They have lots of Pisgah offerings on tap (all of which that I had were fantastic) and a couple other local beers, as well. The prices are terrific, too, for both full pours and flights. The bartender was nice and friendly and had no problems hooking you up with a sample of a beer if you were trying to decide which one you wanted.

Overall, this was just a really awesome place with a nice laid-back atmosphere. I’m not sure what it’s like on concert days, but it was super chill when I went. If you’re in the Asheville area, I highly recommend checking it out.

The husband & I were on vacation in NC and wanted to try out a local brewery. Pisgah Brewing Co. was the brewery closest to Lake Lure so that's where we headed. It was really hard to find (no smartphone or GPS with us) we had to stop and ask for directions twice before luckily and stubbornly happening upon it. Glad we did! The service was quick & friendly, the beer was cold & cheap ($3-4 for 12 oz. pour) the vibe was eclectic & laid back. I had their Classic IPA and the summer ale, both were good, quality beers. They have an impressive stage in the corner of the taproom and I would love to come back sometime for a show. Overall, it was definitely worth the effort. If you are ever near Black Mountain, NC pay a visit to Pisgah Brewing. You'll thank me!

The night I was there Lowdown was the food truck on site. The food and menu were very good. Nice selection for vegetarians and omnivores alike. Pisgah brews some wonderful beers and also has a nice selection of non-Pisgah beers. I would recommend checking out the entertainment that they have and visiting the brewery.

As with many other reviewers, we were not sure if we at the right place when we pulled down the drive. You park across from the building and follow the Pisgah signs. Once inside you head down a flight of stairs into the expansive tasting room. Pretty dark on a cool winter day, but still had a cool vibe.

The beer at this place is what really shines. All four of us got flights of four 5 oz. beers and then some pints. The selection was awesome and we tried all the big beers including the Baptista, Vortex II, Valdez, etc. We all thought they were great, with the Valdez and Baptista standing out. We also tried the Bacon Stout which was interesting and definitely worth a try.

I could not recommend this place enough. Very glad we went out of our way to find this place.

Located 15 miles or so outside of Asheville. Our hotel on the east side of town was only 5 miles away - our closest stop!

Atmosphere: Arriving at noon, Pisgah is located in an industrial park on the outskirts of Black Mountain. Entering from the main entrance, down a short flight of stairs and into the large, open tasting room. The garage doors of the warehouse are up, bringing in light and heat. A stage inside, picnic tables outside and an L-shaped bar. A water tap (self serve with a doggie bowl below). We sat at the bar and got started.

Quality/Service: Far removed from the hustle and bustle, Pisgah was nonetheless busy with kegs, tours and other activities. Our bartender never left that bar and didn't forget about us when things got busy.

Selection: 9 Pisgah beers on tap and another 6 or so guest taps. We worked our way through the Pisgah line-up and had a few samples of the guests. Highlights were Steep Canyon and the Blueberry Wheat. From the guests, the Hoppyum and Buchi Fire (a kombucha with cayenne) were good.

Food: They sell local-made chips but were out. I believe that food trucks periodically come through.

I absolutely love this place. Placed in between Swannanoa and Black Mountain NC, this brewery tasting room is absolutely incredible. When the weather is good, there is a massive lawn out back with spaces for horseshoes and just hanging out with friends and families, and if the weather turns, the reasonably sized warehouse in which the bar is situated, where if you are lucky you will find a open game of cornhole to play in between sips of the beers.
OH the beers! This place is a hidden gem in terms of beer. The Pisgah Pale and Porter are my absolute favorites of the 2 respective styles, although to be fair, I had not tried some of the best stuff from the midwest until recently. Also, they are always rotating their taps with new, seasonal/one-off brews which are always at the least, well thought-out, and at best, are simply delicious(Their Vortex I, an imperial IPA, was the biggest eye opening beer I have ever had).
When I lived in North Carolina, I would try and visit this place once a week, but now that I live in Atlanta, I try and find excuses to visit the Asheville/Black Mountain area not only to see old friends, but also to make the visit to the first brewery I fell in love with.

Ever since I stopped here for the first time I've been wanting to go back again and again. There is a great atmosphere once you get in. Driving up to the place your hopes might be dashed a bit because it seems like a run down industrial complex with old wire fencing and barbed wire around the area. But once inside there's a nice bar with a small stage for musical acts and the garage doors are open to the outside where you can sit and chill with great beer on a nice day. They also have a big outdoor venue for shows they put on in the summer that looks like a good time, but I haven't been down for one of those yet. And of course the beer is good. Haven't had one yet that I didn't like. Overall it's a must stop if you're anywhere close.
