This a quality beer destination, the scale, the presentation, the reverence for beer left me gobsmacked. Loved the interior & exterior areas, nice blend of industry & nature

Beer quality were on point

Service was attentive & helpful

Nice selection of staples & one-offs, stuck to the barrel aged stuff with exception of a local variant IPA

Food was great, but bring your wallet. Liked/loved everything I tried. Portion sizes weren't reflective of price IMHO, but I didn't starve

A must go

OMG!!! There is a review out there that calls this place "Malt Disney World" and it is not lying! The road in seems to led to an amusement park! All of Sierra Nevada's latest-greastest are on tap, but if you want to try one amazing dish, try the Bison marenanted in bulgoki suace,w/ grilled bok cjoy and kimchee puree...pure bliss!! Sierra Nevada has created a "destination"!!!

This place is unbelievable. The gutters are copper. Enough said. The tour is top notch. What a great addition to Western North Carolina.

Visited July 2018 between vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC and the trip home to Indiana. The atmosphere is upscale but laid back. It was very crowded due to the holiday weekend and the band that was scheduled to play at 7. We (me, wife, mother-in-law, 2 teenagers) took the heritage tour, which was very nice, and ended in a 8 beer tasting. The beer was awesome, but there were only a handful of taps for small batch stuff. The gift shop was awesome with six packs and singles of almost anything plus other stuff if that's your thing. We ate at the taproom and the food was outstanding. Very good, freshly prepared and served beautifully. Expect portions and prices in line with high end artesian food vs. typically southern portions. The duck fries, chicken wings and pretzels were particularly great. This is really a must see brewery, my words cannot do it justice.

Really nice vibe to the place. It is immense, there is a long drive up to the parking lot to a very large building. Everything within is built to display grandeur and leave visitors in awe of the size of their operation. Having a self guided tour available at all hours was nice. The food was quite good and very reasonably priced. Selection is very nice, mix of tap and available bottles. Would have liked the flight samplers to be a little bit larger.
