12 Bones began as a BBQ restaurant in 2005 serving lunch only 5 hours a day, 5 days per week.
In 2008 we added a second location and we have now decided to expand again by brewing our own beer. Each location averages approximately 500 walk-in customers daily in 5 hours. Over the years, we have worked very hard to establish 12 Bones as a nationally recognized and respected name in BBQ.
Our new location will be housed inside a large 12,000 sq ft warehouse built in 1941 with an outdoor seating/beer garden adjacent to a rail line. We will be moving our current south Asheville 12 Bones location into the new building during our annual winter break in January 2019.
The brewery and taproom will occupy approximately 5000 sq ft and hopefully open as early as January 2018 with the brewing equipment to arrive early August 2018. The restaurant and brewery will provide a unique family friendly atmosphere and destination serving the greater Asheville area.
