When Dining in Bryson City, the Beer or Wine You Enjoy Might Be Locally Produced


Western North Carolina has developed quite a reputation for its craft beers. And it’s not just Asheville that folks are talking about. Tourists and locals alike are enjoying the unique tastes of craft beers from breweries in Bryson City. Micro-brews are the hottest segment of the beer market and you can enjoy locally-crafted beer from these local breweries in many restaurants in the area.


In the early 20th century, North Carolina was the leading wine-producing region in the nation. Prohibition shifted the focus from the patient production of wine to the faster, more lucrative production of moonshine. Today wineries are flourishing again all across North Carolina.
