6 Best Breweries In Hendersonville, NC

D9 Brewing Company Hendersonville NC with flight of four beers ranging from light yellow to darker brown
If you love sours, D9 Brewing Company in downtown Hendersonville is for you.

1. D9 Brewing Company

What brewery in Hendersonville serves both coffee and beer? D9 Brewing Company!

D9 Brewing is a gorgeous and newer downtown Hendersonville brewery. We also appreciate that they open a little earlier than many of the other breweries in town.

Famous for their sour beers, D9 started out in a garage before taking over the Charlotte beer scene and opening a Hendersonville taproom

D9’s beers include fun names like “Whiskers on Kittens” (that brew is sour AF) and Hakuna Matata. They serve up local guest cider and ginger beers, too. Think Noble Cider and Ginger’s Revenge.

Oklawaha Brewing Company Hendersonville NC beer flight with light beers next to a dark cider
If you are looking for gluten-reduced beers, head to Oklawaha Brewing in downtown Hendersonville.

2. Oklawaha Brewing Company

Formerly Sanctuary Brewing, Oklawaha Brewing Company is one of the most unique breweries in Hendersonville. They brew up gluten-reduced beers.

My Celiac husband is thrilled that he can drink beer at Oklawaha. However, gluten-reduced beers are not for everyone with Celiac Disease and still contain wheat if you have a wheat allergy. We are not doctors.

Oklawaha also sells Roots hummus to snack on. You’ll recognize them by their huge “drink local” lighted sign. Oklawaha also has a small outdoor patio, and the taproom is wide open.

What started as a hobby and a dream turned into Dry Falls Brewing. Dry Falls sits in a red brick building serving up Kölsch, Whitbier, Pale Ale, Fruit Beer, Stouts, Sours, and IPAs.

They also offer seasonal and rotating beers as well as beer slushies.

What is one of our favorite breweries in Hendersonville? We love Triskelion Brewing for their beer flavors and sexy taproom.

4. Triskelion Brewing Company

Which of the Hendersonville breweries has Christine’s favorite Amber? Triskelion. You’ll spot Triskelion Brewing around historic 7th Avenue across from…a cow on a roof.

That’s M & M Meats. Did you know that Christine’s dad used to work for a meat company?

Triskelion Brewing’s building also has a fun blue and gray geometric circle mural. They serve a huge biker community.

How neat is Triskelion Brewing Company’s glass?

Personally, we love their Ambers and Scottish Ale. Their guest taps include cider, hard seltzer, and ginger beer.

Don’t miss The Lunch Bus in the outside biergarten — think fried Brussel Sprouts.

But, what makes Triskelion one of the most unique breweries in Hendersonville is their Blood and Brews tattoo shop. Yasss!

5. Southern Appalachian Brewery

Tucked behind historic 7th Ave, you’ll recognize Southern Appalachian Brewery by its Blue Ridge Mountain craft beer mural. Linda the mannequin convinced us to buy a shirt here.

On Sundays, Southern Appalachian Brewery offers mimosas, which as we witnessed, are Christine-style (all booze!). This Hendersonville brewery understands our souls.

Southern Appalachian Brewery’s beer selection is slightly smaller than some of the other Hendersonville breweries, but they still pack a plentiful punch. Find Hefeweizen, Amber, IPA Stouts, and a Blonde or two.

Explore both an indoor taproom and a large outdoor patio perfect for food trucks and events like live music and yoga.

Guidon is a unique Hendersonville brewery because it’s military-themed.

6. Guidon Brewing Company

Full disclosure that we are not 200% into the bullet-shaped taps here, but Guidon is an American/German ex-military and family-owned Hendersonville brewery and taproom, which we respect. They serve their flights on ‘guidon’ boards.

Because Guidon Brewing Company is German, they offer our favorite brew in the world, Kölsch, and their orange-style Kölsch is delicious.

They have rotating food trucks, and we devoured the BBQ dishes from Carolina Ace Catering BBQ. Think pulled pork fries and ribs with your beer.

Guidon also has gluten-free options like seltzer and cider along with a covered outdoor patio and two-level indoor taproom. Enjoy (a tiny) gorgeous mountain view and beautiful outdoor murals.

Both Guidon and Southern Appalachian are off-the-beaten-track breweries outside of downtown Hendersonville.
