Oskar Blues Brewing opened their east coast operation in Brevard, NC last year and its popularity is only growing. Accessible by car, or right off the bike path, Oskar Blues offers samplers of their entire selection, as well as daily specials like the Coffee Chub, a mix of Brown Bean roastings beans and Old Chub. Their tasting room is above their production facility, so you can take a guided tour of the brewing, fermentation and canning procedures while enjoying your pint. They have live music on different nights of the week, and have a trolley that runs from Asheville to the brewery. Check their website for details on the trolley times, they tend to change.
Dogs are welcome at the brewery, and there is sometimes a food truck parked out front, but that varies also. Other than roasted peanuts, the brewery does not have a kitchen.
