Definitely my favorite brewery in North Carolina, my only complaint is that I don't get to spend more time there. The building is a renovated house and the interior is mainly exposed framing and wood which gives the place a very cool vibe. Plenty of seating although the place can fill up on weekends when local bands play everything from original music to covers, they are really great at picking bands as I have never been and not enjoyed the music accompanying the beer. AMB has a pretty good selection of brews, they are all good but some standout in particular, my personal favorite is the Crooked Common when it is being served. The bartenders are great and very knowledgeable about their selection as well. The brewery is also actively involved in the local community which is really great and are heavily focused on sustainability, AMB really is the gold standard for local breweries in this sense as they were founded by local students and give back. They are heavily focused on sustainability as well having installed solar panels, restored nearby parts of Boone Creek which run past the brewery, and they donate spent grain to local farmers which is really invaluable in an area like the High Country.

Additionally, they have a food truck outside that is just about permanently parked outside called Farm to Flame. The beer-infused pizza is the absolute best that you can get in Boone, I really have to resist having an entire pizza every time I go there because of how great it is. Don't worry if you are a vegetarian, the veggie options are really some of their best pizzas. Additionally, the brewery's focus on sustainability extends to their food truck. When at the brewery it runs off their solar panels, and they use bio-diesel when they do drive, and they use bio-degradable utensils and containers to reduce the impact of their waste.

Overall a really great place to drink good beer and that I am going to miss dearly when I graduate!

Great people, excellent beer. My favorite place in town. I've never had a beer I didn't like here, my favorites are the Good Deal and Daniel's Double.

Get the Italian pizza and a pitcher of coffee IPA and enjoy life. I travel a decent amount and this brewery is the best one I have been to. Your not blitzed with an over abundance of beer choices or a food selection with ingredients only a culinary arts student understands. You get incredible pizza and beer.

Here in Boone for the month, and this was on the top of my list to visit. Cool little place not far off the main drag. Some decent seating inside, with good bar seating. There's been local live music there each time I have been there. A couple of areas designated for outside seating, albeit covered which was nice. Cornhole set up in the lawn area, and a food truck continually parked out front serving food. On my first visit I got a paddle of samples of all 7 of their offerings at that time. There were hits and there were a couple misses. I really dug their Rye'd That Pale Ale. Prices for pints are reasonable, but the price for the sampler was actually high for what it was. A cool joint with a typical Boone laid-back vibe. I have been back many times, and plan to continue that throughout the month.

An awesome place. The bartenders were both extremely knowledgeable and happy to talk. I tried a flight of all eleven beers they have on tap (they max out at 10 but the bartender was kind enough to slide me the eleventh, much appreciated) and there were some gems. The swag for sale is all very good (my original choice of t-shirt was sold out, plenty of people in the bar were already wearing it) and the decor on the walls was pretty cool. My only complaint was a lack of food. They don't have their own food menu and the food trucks hadn't started serving yet. Fortunately they were hosting a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser that was selling chili. I'll be back plenty of times in the future.
