The drive from Asheville to Brevard, home of Oskar Blues Brewery, isn’t that far. But even better when you take the free trolley that takes you from Asheville on Saturdays to the craft brewery that opened an East Coast operation here a year ago.
Oskar Blues is known for its craft beer in a can, and at the Brevard brewery, you’ll see beer cans stacked to the ceiling. If you opt to drive yourself to the brewery, you’ll need to know where you’re going. It’s not that far from town, but once you leave the main road, you may wonder where you’re really headed.
The brewery tasting room is open til 10 p.m. on Saturdays, but closes early on weeknights – last call is about 7:45 p.m. Check the schedule to see if there’s live music the night you attend. Back in the fall, we enjoyed the Cinnamon Coffee Chub.
Brevard is a great little down, gateway to the Pisgah National Forest with a lively downtown and good local restaurants. The brewery just adds another attraction to the mix.
