The daily public tour says the tickets are available day of on a first come first serve basis. Can I call and buy tickets or do I need to be in person to buy the tickets?

I don't recommend but have your credit card ready. I bought my tickets on the day we took the tour (4 people). Just in case there was some unforeseen circumstance on the way to New Belgian.

Are there TVs to watch football on Sundays?

I don't recall TVs during our visit and we sat at the big bar inside. Which means if they do have them, they are limited.

Located near Asheville along the French Broad River that offers brewery tours and beer tastings near the River Arts District. Open daily 12-8 They do not serve food but there is usually a food truck on site. Beers are super cheap. Had the Mountain Time which is a light lager. If you don't want to sit inside the tasting room overlooking the river,there are plenty of tables outside near the food truck. Great for families. Parking is available in the lot or on the street.

We came here to check out the scenery and have a few drinks before dinner. They make their own beers and have quite a few of them. Fat Tire was a great one and was a cool place to hang out. Bartenders were great and would come back to hang again.

New Belgium is a "must visit" when in Asheville. We had tried to make plans for a Sunday tour (they offer several 90 minutes tours). Had a problem with the website and was only able to book one spot and there was two of us and they were now sold out. Decided to go for beers anyway and I mentioned that I wouldn't be doing the tour since it was sold out and didn't want to leave my wife behind. Talk about great customer service. A woman who I assume was a manager offered to for my wife into the tour. I explained that we had now made other plans so she refunded my ticket and bought us each a beer. They get five stars just for Customer Service but the building and property are almost as amazing as their beers were. Front lawn is very open, spacious tasting room and cool back deck with outdoor heaters. The small breweries in town were great but this place is a destination. Check them out! Kid friendly Plenty of Parking A little off the beaten path so use your GPS

Been lucky enough to visit this brewery twice (live in Texas). New Belgium is my favorite brewery because they're a company who is environmentally conscious and cares for their employees. They offer complimentary tours of the brewing facility which I attended on my first visit. The tour was so informative and included free beer tastings! Unfortunately, on my second visit the tour I came to take had been cancelled. Wish there was a better way to communicate cancelations to customers. We stayed and enjoyed a few flights and tried their Dominga mimosa sour which was delicious! So bummed I can't buy it anywhere where I live. Fortunately, I can get their Voodoo IPAs locally. I highly recommend the Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze. So GOOD. The tasting room is very large and dog friendly. There's indoor and outdoor seating. Highly recommend sitting outside and enjoying the view to the river below. Come check New Belgium out!

The brewery is a great beer experience. There's very comfortable seating inside and outside on the patio. There are heaters outside in a couple of spots for the colder weather. Inside the bar tenders are top notch. They're incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. They'll happily treat you to samples and walk you through beers. There are curated flights that sample their best as they see, or you can build your own. The water cups are compostable which is a great touch. Be sure to check out their gift shop.

Best Experience Ever

"It was a birthday gift to remember. Awesome choices, plenty of time to explore and enjoy the other options available. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I have made changes in what we look for in beers as well as how we drink it - always in a glass. Fun and cool"

Excellent Time Had By All

"The tour was great from beginning to end. Mark was an awesome guide. Perfect man for our group. We really enjoyed his knowledge of beer and history. All the brewery stops were good, but Bantam Cider was my favorite. Will definitely be back!"

History Meets Beer

"This tour was a great way to experience the city of Boston and see what various types of beer it has to offer. The tour guide was very informative and made the overall experience fun and enjoyable. Plus, who doesn't like to sample 15-18 beers in under 6 hours? Will definitely recommend this tour to friends!"

Earlier this summer I went on a wheat and dairy farm tour in western NC.

Not only did we get to tour a dairy farm, a wheat farm, a MilkCo production facility, explore local Asheville restaurants AND stay in downtown bed and breakfasts – we also were able to eat (and drink!) things that included wheat and dairy.

What kind of wheat do you drink? BEER.

New Belgium Brewery Asheville beer tour

New Belgium brewery was probably my favorite stop on this whole trip!

I’m not even a huge beer drinker, but our tour guides (Mike & Mike) were AWESOME, friendly, hilarious, genuine people. I simply love when people enjoy what they do and believe in what they (and their company) stands for.

The biggest message I got through my head during this tour was that New Belgium brewery cares about sustainability .

Everything from their “trifecta of LEED certifications ” down to collecting steam from one processing vessel to use as water later. Their logo is even a BIKE – a fitting symbol, no?

Random fact: They also do small brew testing for new brands, and for their small batches they work with the local River Bend malt house. (A “small batch” starts at 16-17 full size kegs.)

New Belgium Brewing started in Colorado, so when they opened the location up in Asheville they faced a challenge I never even thought about – they had to start by making their most popular beer, Fat Tire , taste the same as it does in Colorado.

Consistency of product is very important, and things like environment, different elevation, and even the water all affect it! Who knew?

And from there – take the slide, not the stairs.

If you want to work at New Belgium Brewery – good luck! Our tour guide Mike joked that he got his job way before there were 400 applicants per opening.

Some of their employee perks: At your 5-year anniversary, you get a trip to Belgium! After 10 years, you can take a 4-week sabbatical anywhere you want. They also give their employees a bike (surprised?), and a 12-pack of choice per week.

They also have a “taste master” program, where you can give feedback on their brews.

Asheville is apparently known as the “Beermuda triangle” with more beer brewed per capita than any other city. Beer city!

So while there are many choices to get your drink on in Asheville, you should definitely check out New Belgium brewery. Their tours are about 90 minutes long and free. There has never been a script, so they are all different depending on your tour guide! There is also a paid private tour available.

New Belgium Asheville begins public brewery tours

September 2, 2016

New Belgium Brewing Company’s Asheville brewery, which has been producing beer since this past spring, begins offering scheduled public tours Friday, Sept. 2. It is the general public’s first opportunity to book a tour and see inside this highly anticipated brewery.

New Belgium’s free tours run daily on the half hour and reservations are necessary. Starting Friday, September 2, you can  book a tour here .

Brilliant Stream tours the Asheville brewery

Last week, Brilliant Stream participated in media day tours at the facility and found it most impressive. Taking the New Belgium tour would be a worthy adventure for any beer fan or beer novice. Beer fans will especially appreciate the multiple beer stops along the tour route.

On the typical brewery tour, you have to see all the insides of the brewery first before you get to visit the taproom and sample some brews. At New Belgium Asheville, you sample at several tasting stations along the way—inside the brewery—and you still get dropped off in the main taproom at the end. It’s a great concept.

All tours begin at the Liquid Center. Inside the center you’ll find a large room with lots of beer-on-tap, tables, chairs, packaged beer to take home, growler filler, logo merchandise, and a nice outdoor patio with seating overlooking the French Broad River.

While you are waiting for your tour to start, you can purchase a glass of brew and relax for a bit. The huge selection lets you choose from every New Belgium beer that is currently available.

From the Liquid Center your tour leader will guide you over a winding path to the main brewery building. You can’t take glasses of beer out of the Liquid Center over to the brewery. But don’t worry, New Belgium will take care of you in just a few minutes.

The brewery itself is a thing of beauty. All aspects, from the landscaping and architecture to the brewing equipment and tasting stations, show great attention to detail.

As you approach the brewery building, you’ll notice three tall, shiny metal tanks sitting out on the left. These are a special heat capturing and transferring mechanism for energy conservation. They are indicative of New Belgium’s commitment to sustainability.

Entering the building, the first stop is a large room containing the brewhouse. It’s made up of four big stainless steel vessels: mash tun, later tun, brew kettle, and whirlpool.

Here’s a close-up photo of the colorful tile work at the base of the tanks. Absolutely beautiful. Click on it to see a larger image. It is all totally custom. A local artist made the tiles from scratch and installed them in a pattern inspired by a hop cone.

Alex Dwoinen, Brewing Manager, New Belgium Asheville, is the main man responsible for overseeing the brewing program operation.

The Asheville brewery has a production capacity of 500,000 barrels annually. Add that capacity to the Fort Collins, Colorado brewery, and New Belgium’s total capacity is roughly 1.5 million barrels a year.

Your first special treat is the brewhouse tasting station where you get to sample your initial tour beers.

Next, you traverse through stairways and corridors where you see all the key workings of the brewery, except for the outdoor fermentation tanks. The tour guides are well-versed in brewery details and can answer just about any question you throw at them.

The main control room is filled with computer equipment. From there, most all brewery activities can be monitored and controlled.

Brewery workers truly cover all the bases, including keeping the viewing windows sparkling clean.

Soon, you get to the mid-tour tasting station that appears as if you are right outside the ‘t Brugs Beertje cafe in Bruges, Belgium. They say that’s where the New Belgium founders first got their inspiration for the beer they would make. Daisy Claeys is surely proud and happy about the free advertisement.

Quality assurance is a key component of a large craft brewery operation. New Belgium’s laboratories are first-rate.

The packaging room is massive. Kegs, cans, and bottles are all filled, labeled, and packed up for storage here, awaiting shipping. The bottling line can process 480 bottles per minute.

Opposite the packaging room window is the next tasting station. You won’t want for beer samples on this tour. This bar is constructed with many reclaimed materials.

To get a good look at the large outdoor fermentation tanks, you have to walk around the outside of the brewery building.

An emphasis on artwork

Art is displayed all around the brewery facilities. Much of the furnishings and the bar in the Liquid Center were also locally produced. Ninety percent of the artists and crafts people who made the art live within 5 miles of the brewery.

Much of the artwork, fixtures, and furnishing include materials reclaimed from the old livestock market that originally sat on the space now taken over by the brewery.

Though not done by a local artist, this cow was pretty amazing.

While you can sample and purchase all of New Belgium’s current portfolio in the Liquid Center, most of the beers are not yet brewed here. As of last week, the Asheville brewery was only producing three of New Belgium’s many beers. Fat Tire has been brewed here since April 2. Ranger IPA was the second beer produced here, and Citradelic, the third. They will phase in production of additional beers over the coming months until all most if not all the core brands and seasonals will be brewed here (as well as in Colorado). Some of the last beers that might be made in Asheville are the sour beers and the Lips of Faith Series. No timetable has been announced for producing additional beers.

Another great reason for a road trip

All in all, this is definitely another don’t miss stop on an Asheville visit—whether or not you are a beer fan. They do a great jobs of telling the story of New Belgium beer. And an interesting story it is. This brewery tour is another compelling reason to get over to Asheville again.

New Belgium Asheville

Liquid Center 21 Craven St. Asheville, NC

Brewery, wellness studios to open as one-stop neighborhood hangout in Asheville

new belgium brewery asheville tour

ASHEVILLE - A local couple is on the path to bringing fitness and entertainment to the Asheville community at a hybrid brewery-wellness center.

This month, Josh and Shannon Brewer acquired the keys to the former Down Dog dog park, bar and yoga studio that closed last spring at 51 Sweeten Creek Road. The Brewers will transform the newly leased commercial building into a craft beer taproom with wellness studios.

Josh Brewer, who started as a home brewer, sought a place to open a brewery in Asheville after years as a professional brewer in Eastern North Carolina. Shannon Brewer recognized an opportunity to share her expertise in wellness with an audience in a joint venture.

“I said, ‘Why don’t we do a wellness studio and brewery together and it’s like whole-person wellness ― it’s mental, physical, spiritual, social and community — everything all together,” Shannon Brewer said.

The months-long renovation plan to upgrade the nearly 4,000-square-foot facility, spruce up the patio, and get beer production churning is intended to be complete in time for a November/December opening.

The entrepreneurs envision a place for the community to gather and find inner peace by participating in a yoga class or relaxing with a cold craft beer.

Josh Brewer said he imagines Brewwell as a local hangout due to its placement in the Sweeten Creek neighborhood surrounded by other local commercial businesses, restaurants and breweries like Hillman Beer and 7 Clans Brewing.

“It’s an area that has some strong established businesses and hangout places here,” Shannon Brewer said. “It’s growing and evolving, and I think we’ll continue to see it grow and evolve so it’s exciting to be getting in on the earlier stage of the second wave.”

The fitness factor

A receptionist will greet guests entering the front of the building seeking to spend time on the wellness side of the business.

The two existing studios will host regularly scheduled classes like yoga, Pilates and meditation. The workshops and seminars may include practices like sound healing and reiki, and specially scheduled one-to-two times per month.

“Whatever people are interested in,” Shannon Brewer said. “I’m hoping to curate a collection of opportunities for people to explore and find the thing that sparks their element of interest.”

Instructors and other professionals will be contracted to lead the sessions.

The brewing side

The design theme is one Shannon Brewer has dubbed “Scandinavian boho industrial” as it will have a clean-line modern style with metal trusses overhead, natural materials like wood, terracotta and plant accents, and a color scheme of black and white contrasting with the copper beer kegs.

The taproom will be in the back half of the building and offer table, bar and lounge seating.

The existing bar will receive a facelift and drywall will be installed on the back wall from which the beverage menu will hang.

Nearly 600 square feet will be partitioned off the area to create a designated beer production space.

Six copper tanks will hang above the bar. The perks of the unique beer brewing and draft method are that it will save floor space for operations and storage while getting beer directly to guests in the taproom. Also, it will be easy to clean as it uses replaceable bags in the tanks.

Josh Brewer, said the “tank beer” set-up is popular in Europe, but Brewwell will be the third brewery in the U.S. to use them.

Beer is funneled from the brewery to the copper kegs through ceiling piping, and then a draft line will run from the kegs to the back wall of the taps.

Several additional taps behind the bar will be reserved for local guest beverage companies providing options like Prosecco, wine, kombucha and sour beers. Non-alcoholic options on the menu will include zero-proof beer, fruit smoothies, handcrafted sodas and sparkling teas.

Josh Brewer plans to introduce the brewery by releasing Czech-style pilsners and dark beers, a German-style Helles, an English-style pale ale, a nitrogen stout and Indian pale ales.

Light snacks will be on the menu, but visitors will be encouraged to patronize guest food trucks, pop-up vendors and neighborhood restaurants.

Brewwell’s creekside patio

The patio will offer covered and open spaces and an elevated section that will back up to Sweeten Creek.

Enhancements will include a new awning and seating.

The fencing will be changed to create a more open and inviting social space.

“We want it to feel community-oriented. People can come in and be themselves, relax and hang out. It's a little bit more of an open feeling,” Shannon Brewer said.

The patio and taproom will be accessible from the side parking lot. A window at the back of the building will be replaced by a door for an additional entryway between the taproom and the patio.

The parking lot at Brewwell is limited to about a half-dozen spaces but additional parking will be available across the street.  

Although the venue will no longer be a dedicated dog park, dogs will be welcomed at the brewery but in a traditional sense on a leash and on the patio with their human counterpart.

Where: 51 Sweeten Creek Road, Asheville.

Opening: Tentatively November/December 2024.
