Vibe- Kinda hipster/industrial. Open green space outside. Enviro friendly with the compost and recycling. Cool sitting area outside along the river. Wide variety of customers. A ton of people with babies and dogs.
Quality- The place is well kept. Good money and effort into design and set up. My flight of beer was surprisingly tasty.
Service- mid day on a Saturday in the fall- waited in line for 20+ minutes to get a flight, would’ve been nice if the outdoor bar was open
Selection- 20+ on tap and a wide variety of styles
Food- rotating food truck schedule. I made a bad choice in $9 pulled pork nachos. The chips and fake cheese sauce were what you would expect at a high school football game. YUCK. The other food truck had some delicious looking grilled cheeses

Hopped over to NBB after Sierra Nevada. First off, this is a beautiful and huge facility right on the Broad River. The taproom has a nice big bar at the front. Every employee, from 22 to 62, was very friendly. Talked with a cat that my elderly father had a lot in common with. We tipped him for our pours and he stated that all tips were going to the Campfire relief effort for the Sierra Nevada employees. Pretty cool.

Taproom was buzzing. Had about 30 beers on? Large cooler with RTG beers

Outside there were food trucks, cornhole and nice sitting area with a fire. Perfect.

Took the tour of the brewhouse and packaging. Huge. Got 3 free pours on the tour. Yum. The girlie that did the tour was pretty new, but still seemed to know a lot about everything.

Fun time, fun place, fun peeps. Check it out.

From the entrance to the tasting room onward, this place just didn’t do it for us. Combine the bad vibe with pretentious employees, it was enough to make this a “one and done” brewery visit for us.

Campus style layout, not as impressive as Sierra Nevada's satellite brewery, but way more conveniently located. Taproom building is large and open with windows on three sides a patio out front and a large deck overlooking the river in the back. ID check upon entry, they had separate lines for beer to go and beer to be consumed on premises. The lines were on the long side, and apparently NC law prohibits selling more than one beer at a time for on site consumption. A wide variety of beer on tap, the 2 VooDoo variants that I had were good. Gourmet grill cheese food truck was excellent, but I had expected a full blown brewpub type restaurant. Oh well... that' what assumptions will get you. Wold like to check the place out on a weekday when it's not as busy.

One of the best breweries I've visited, and I've visited countless breweries around the world. This brand-new facility let's you see the entire brewing process. Plus, free beer tastings! The staff is amazingly friendly, knowledgeable, and clearly love their jobs. The tour includes a fun slide and all sorts of information. The beers are numerous with even some limited edition brews on tap and even more for purchase at reasonable prices. The only downside is that they don't do many stouts or porters which are my favorite. But what they do, they do well! I will absolutely be going back for events and future tours.

I really didn't think I would like this place as much as I did. I was worried when the bigger boys started invading Asheville. I was wrong on this one. A great spot with a huge taproom next to their huge brewery. Tons of staples on tap, but a nice mix of harder to find beers as well. Bartenders were nice enough. They have a lot of bring home stuff and a lot of swag. Big parking lot.

Let me say upfront- I have not been a big New Belgium fan. That said I really enjoyed this place. Small relative to Sierra Nevada down the road, but they did not skimp on this place. Sat outside on the deck overlooking the river on a really nice day in October 2016.
Even though we sat on segregated tables we struck up great conversations with two different parties. Everyone was real nice.
I even liked the beers I had.

Great tour! Lots of background info on how NB started. Especially enjoyed the Fat Tire right off the production line.
