Nantahala is an excellent local brewery. They have a wide variety available. Their imperial stout is absolutely the best.

Perfect place for a craft beer on the porch on a warm fall afternoon. Their beer is really good and there are a lot of choices.

The salads were great, just like the beer. The collard greens with hammock were devine, old-school classic flavor combination. They ran out of the Trout early. So go early to choose without limitations.

Enjoyed this brewery it's very inviting atmosphere. Sat at the bar for a bit, then sat outside and got some air. It's a little muggy inside to sit for any length of time. Quite a variety of beers to enjoy, recommend getting the flight sampler...More

I'm not sure about the band schedule. Sometimes they have bands and sometimes they don't. They may post a schedule on their website.

We serve our beer and local cider at the taproom, but we have a full bar including wine at our new brewpub. The Warehouse at Nantahala Brewing is just 100 yards down the street from our taproom.
