Our little watering hole/Nano-brewery serves as the premier social gathering hub in lower Avery County. Take advantage of our beautiful facilities as your local spot to gather with friends. We are situated directly along the North Toe River offering locals and wayward travelers an opportunity to kick back and take in the beautiful environment that has drawn people to the mountains for many generations. You can take a relaxing float from upstream on a tubing excursion, camp at the Farm Retreat property located only one mile away, or just have a lazy day on our river decks while enjoying cold beverages and food provided on site by one of our food truck partners. Also, feel free to bring your own picnic or consider club membership to take advantage of using the private kitchen along with a variety of additional membership perks!

We offer a 1.5-hour float trip that starts at the Brewery and Taproom with a shuttle upstream to our drop-off location. Tubers 21+ in age can take advantage of purchasing a plastic 32oz. growlers to take on the float for the ultimate in outdoor relaxation! If you are unsure of what beer you would like to take on the river, be sure to arrive early enough to purchase a flight in our taproom.
