Description: Boondocks Brewing was founded in 2012 with a mission to provide a fresh, unique and engaging destination for residents as well as visitors to Ashe County. We are a locally owned and employee run small business that is Dedicated to Excellence and Committed to our Community. We are Ashe County's first and only commercially licensed Craft Beer Brewery and we brew small batches of hand crafted beers weekly. With 2 locations in downtown West Jefferson, Boondocks Brewing offers full service dining, one of the State's best Craft Beer selections, off-site catering, customized special events, private parties and brewery tours. Boondocks Brewing is where the locals go and is a must stop destination for visitors to the High Country. Boondocks Brewing's Tap Room & Restaurant located at 108 S Jefferson Ave is our main location with the High Country's best Craft Beer selection and an extensive and diverse menu with both inside and covered outside full service dining areas. Open 11:00 am 7 days a week. Boondocks Brewing's Brew Haus located at 302 S Jefferson Ave is the home of our Brewing operations and is also our special events venue where we can customize virtually any special event. This location is open by appointment only or when we are are brewing (normally each Tuesday).

The brewery was closed when we got there but their restaurant location was open. We had some dip, a mixed drink, and a flight of beer. The only disappointing thing was you could only buy growlers of beer there.

Thank you for visiting with us and for posting your review.

We normally do not have the Brewery location open to the public except when we are brewing or during the summer season on busy weekends. We also do not bottle or distribute our beers outside of the Restaurant. We have several fill on-demand options for those wanting to take some of our beer or any of the other 20+ beers that we have on tap home.

We have full 64oz glass growlers, 32oz glass growlers and 32oz Crowlers (cans). All are filled fresh from the tap and sealed in front of you so that you know you are getting it fresh and it has not been sitting on a shelf for who knows how long.

We are in the process of doing some very limited bottling of our beers that will be available at the Restaurant but we do not plan to start doing this until late Spring.

We hope that you have a chance to come back this way and hopefully you will not leave disappointed.....

Have a wonderful Holiday and safe travels.

Regards,
Gary - Founder/Head Brewer

Boondocks Brewing is a great place to eat. It's always busy. I enjoy it because they offer Gluten Free Sandwich Bread and pasta. This was a return visit. Each time we visit West Jefferson, we eat at Boondocks Brewing!

We stopped in for beers and snacks on a very wet and dreary Saturday afternoon. The bar and restaurant were busy but the bartender was very attentive. Lots of fun beers to choose from and they had all the college games on the multiple tvs in the bar area. Appetizers were good including the flatbread pizza. Although not the weather for it on this trip, the covered deck which is doggie friendly is another favorite of ours.

Thank you for spending some time with us Saturday and for posting your kind review. The day started nice enough but it sure turned a bit on the crappy side after the Parade. We hope to see you again soon.....

Acoustics in this place are irritating at best horrendous at worst. Food is really good, burgers top notch as are most items but the noise level is the big downer. Its virtually impossible to carry on a conversation when its crowded inside. Outside is far better but their tendency to have the background music volume turned up is disturbing even then. Could easily get 5 stars if the noise levels were addressed.

Thank you for posting your review. I apologize that the noise level does make it hard to carry on a conversation at times. Our building is quite large with high ceilings and although we keep the background music low, when we are busy and our guests are having a good time it can get a bit loud.

If you are seated on the deck and the music is too loud, please ask your server to turn it down. They are supposed to keep that music at a low level but sometimes they do turn it up a bit much.

We will be doing some needed renovations over the Winter and will certainly look for ways to improve the ambiance and acoustics but please understand that although we can control the volume of our sound system, there is little we can do to "turn down" the volume of our guests enjoying themselves.

We will continue to work hard to address your concerns and we hope to serve you again soon.

Servers described the new fall beers so well, we HAD to try both of them!
All four of us had different brews and LOVED them. And the food - WOW - we came for the burgers and ended up having pasta, salmon with amazing seasoning, and ahi tuna.
We’ll be back!

Thank you so very much for allowing our team to serve you.
I greatly appreciate you taking the time to post your very kind review. I love to share these types of reviews with our team as this is the type of experience we work hard to make sure that every one of our guests has.
Unfortunately a lot of people only take the time to post a review when we mess something up, so again, thank you for letting us know we got it right.

We look forward to serving you again in the future.
Safe travels where ever they may lead.

At your service,
