22 THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — WESTERN NC | VOLUME 12 — ISSUE 2 HENDERSONVILLE Beer lovers are not left out and local breweries keep the beer movement vital. Small batch breweries making hand craft ales comingle with giant brew king, Sierra Nevada. Sanctuary Brewing Company nano- brewery and taproom specializes in making small batch, high quality artisan ales, and Appalachian Brewing Company serves up live music, food trucks and good times that pair nicely with distinctive small batch ales. A brew tour is always a fun way to spend the day. Sierra Nevada offers a Beer Geek Tour, an IPA Tour (most popular craft beer style), Brewhouse Tour or the popular Trip in the Woods Tour that features a guided nature walk on the scenic, forested property surrounding the brewery. On the 1.5-mile hike beer lovers are educated on the natural resources of the region, not the least the importance of water for making great beer, and why the French Broad River is critical to success. For a new way to visit breweries and cideries in the Hendersonville area try The Brewery Experience, with chauffeured VIP service to more than a half-dozen producers of craft spirits – wineries, breweries and cideries. Included in the tour are Bold Rock Hard Cider, Flat Rock Cider Works, Southern Appalachian Brewery, Sanctuary Brewing, Blue Ghost Brewing, Burntshirt Vineyards and Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards. Bed and breakfast establishments, inns and rustic cabins make it easy to hang your hat in Hendersonville. One of the newest place to lay your head is The Cascades Mountain Resort. It is one of two new hotel experiences which opened in the past year. Aside from the luxurious accommodations and relaxing atmosphere, a surprise for water lovers awaits – an indoor pool and 110-foot water slide in the main lobby. The resort, located near several Hendersonville orchards, offers apple picking and other activities in the late summer and fall. The onsite restaurant and bar, Old Orchard Tavern, highlights North Carolina products from local farms such as Hickory Nut Gap Farms, Springer Farms, Sunburst Trout, Barbary Fish Company and others. For starters, try gourmet housemade cracklins' (aka pork rinds) served with smoked pimiento cheese and house- made buttermilk ranch. Hendersonville is a something-for-everyone town. Whether you are looking for the perfect apple to bite into, taking a hike surrounded by colorful foliage or watching a play, Hendersonville is the perfect mountain destination. Don't forget to tour the Carl Sandburg National Historic Site (nps.gov/carl)! [] Where do you want to be? Don't take the same old journey. Be somewhere genuine. Be somewhere amazing.
