At Black Mountain Ale Trail, we are passionate about the beer that comes from our area’s breweries. We are equally passionate about our natural surroundings – the mountain streams and rivers that make our local beers taste so good. And we are excited to share these passions with you! On the Ale Trail, you will explore breweries in the Black Mountain and Old Fort areas of Western North Carolina, including Black Mountain Brewing, Lookout Brewing, and Hillman Beer. Our guided bus tours will give you an opportunity to learn about how beer is made, different breweries and their brewing processes, and the surrounding area – complete with beer tastings at each stop!
