We stopped in for a beer and to watch the football game. They had live music, and a very packed house. Service was good, beer was good - can't say much more about a brewhouse other than that!

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.
