Visit breweries, cideries and wineries in Asheville
With more breweries per capita than any other city in the U.S., Asheville is brimming with taprooms, tasting bars and outdoor patios serving America’s favorite alcoholic beverage. (The secret, they say, is in the fresh mountains water used in brewing.) You’ll find places to partake downtown and in nearby South Slope, an old warehouse district morphing into a haven for craft breweries. Plan your trip to Asheville around Asheville Beer Week or the live-music-infused Brewgrass Festival for a total immersion into the beer scene.
Asheville’s cideries and wineries are also worth noting. Local craft cider is on the rise, benefitting from the area’s apple orchards. And wine lovers may be surprised to learn that the Travel Channel named Asheville one of “The New Top 10 Cities for Wine Snobs.” Nearby, Biltmore Estate’s winery is the most visited in the nation, producing 20 handcrafted vintages.
