Located in Fairview, another favorite for our family is Whistle Hop Brewing.

Another Fairview brewery great for kids, it has a creek ( Cane Creek) in the back and is shallow and clean. Also they have fire pits and ample space to throw a Frisbee. The beer selection is one of my favorite.

4- New Belgium

Although there is no designated play area, New Belgium has a large front space where many families picnic and kids play ball, run, or do activities of their own. The location near the RAD and the great beer selection put it in our top list.

5- Sierra Nevada

Sierra Nevada is a large brewery located in Hendersonville, NC ( 30 minutes from Asheville, near the airport). This brewery has a cool sandbox play area right next to garden. The sandbox has some dump trucks, sand tables and other cool toys there.

The outdoor is large so you can also bring a blanket to picnic or chairs to sit in the lawn and let the kids run.

As we conclude our exploration of Asheville's kid-friendly breweries, we want to leave you with some final recommendations to make your family trip truly unforgettable.

Don't forget to pack some snacks and water for the little ones. While most breweries offer food options, having some additional snacks on hand can help keep hunger at bay and avoid any potential meltdowns.

Furthermore, it's a good idea to bring along some activities to keep the kids occupied during your brewery visits. Coloring books, small toys, or handheld games can help keep them entertained while you savor your favorite brews.

Lastly, remember to relax and enjoy the experience. Asheville's kid-friendly breweries not only provide a fun atmosphere for children but also a welcoming environment for parents to unwind and connect with other beer enthusiasts. So, sit back, sip on your delicious craft brew, and create lasting memories with your family.
