Breweries in Asheville, NC ... but wait, there's more, this list from July, 2015 has continued to grow! AVL currently has 27 breweries and 8 more likely coming in the near future (2017?), with an overall local total of about 60 breweries, adding in the close-in surrounding counties and WNC area ... Truly a Beer City USA and region for the eastern half of the country! (Also: add 2 more great Hard-Cider producers).
