Visit this unique, casual dining experience for a high-quality meal fresh out of their from-scratch kitchen when you visit Foggy Mountain Brewery in Asheville, NC. At Foggy Mountain Brewery, they love sports, but they are not a sports bar. They love live music, but they aren’t a music venue, though they do feature live music on occasion. They love beer but they aren’t a brewery. What! That’s right, they aren’t yet a brewery, but they love food!

It is the love for food that guides the tenacious work ethic of the staff of Foggy Mountain Brewery. Their desire to serve only quality meals with from-scratch options means all guests will have access to good food and good beer, all in a friendly, casual, neighborhood environment. The mission of Foggy Mountain Brewery and one they take very seriously is “pub grub, done right”! They say that even though they feature the basics, the quality shows up in their craft, in how they prepare dishes, and how they operate their restaurant.

When Foggy Mountain Brewery first opened, the initial plan was to install a 10-gallon micro-brew system after opening, hence the name. However, their kitchen quickly outgrew their location, and thus the opportunity to establish brewing operations was put on the back-burner so to speak. Thankfully, it is still on the dream board and planned for one day. Until then, they will continue serving some great food and beer in a fun, friendly atmosphere.

With nearly the entire menu being made-to-order from scratch, there isn’t a wrong choice when selecting an item off their menu.
