One travel trend that’s booming these days is vacationing to places where craft beer is king. Different cities, both in the US and elsewhere, now offer large concentrations of craft breweries where artisanal beer is crafted and served to the thirsty masses.

One American city that any craft beer lover has to visit is Asheville, North Carolina, a mountain town scenically nestled in a valley of the Appalachian Mountains.

Asheville has a unique and care-free reputation, and this character extends to the city’s beer scene. Despite only having a population of 92,000, Asheville hosts tons of craft breweries. The city in and of itself boasts nearly 30, and the surrounding region hosts even more.

It’s easy to take a stroll around Asheville’s comfy downtown area and visit lots of the breweries without using a car. One of our favorite Asheville breweries (which is located within walking distance from the city center) is Burial Beer Company. This brewery produces unique ales and offers a comfortable outside beer garden to enjoy your drinks in.

Other Asheville breweries in the city center with a fantastic reputation include Wicked Weed (IPAs and sour beers galore), Hi-Wire Brewing (good beer in a chic, industrial-inspired space), and Bhramari Brewing Company (a gastropub with an eclectic beer selection).

Asheville is truly a paradise for any beer lover. Go, and go soon!
