Craft brews, wines & spirits. What’s your pleasure?

Bryson City offers unique ways to enjoy your beer, wine and cocktails. There are two breweries with indoor and outdoor seating, and a taproom & patio at an outfitters store. You can take guided tours of area breweries, or just order a locally-crafted beverage in many of our restaurants. Take a breweries tour with a designated driver. Stop by the wine market for flight tastings and find not only wines, but meads. Signatures cocktails are available at local bars and restaurants. We’ve got a lot to offer!

Look for the dog paw print symbol for pet friendly outside seating wherever you enjoy your beer or wine.
