Brewery & Wine in the North Carolina Smoky Mountains

The boom in the craft beer industry is alive and thriving throughout the North Carolina Smoky Mountains.  You’ll find a brewing company in almost every city in the area and many within walking distance of each other.  Start your craft beer exploration with some of these local favorites when you are out grabbing a bite to eat or just in need of refreshment.

If a glass of wine is more your style to take in the beautiful scenery, you’ll find that here too.  The climate of the region paired with the elevation make way for opportunities to create unique wines that you won’t find elsewhere in North Carolina.

We’re not the first distillers to understand the importance of Maggie Valley’s water. The first settlers knew these rustic and rugged mountains held a secret. They brought their Scotch-Irish heritage of making craft whiskey and spirits with them. Maggie Valley has been the home to many legendary moonshiners who made GREAT Smoky Mountain whiskeys! WANT TO BE MASTER DISTILLER FOR THE DAY? We are now happily booking tours for the summer of 2018. We’ll show you how we make your favorite spirits, then treat you to a tasting! Morning and early afternoon tours are the best times to see the still in operation. Monday-Saturday: 10:00am - 7:00pm
