“Bearwaters”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Very relaxed atmosphere ! I have been here a couple of times and enjoyed both. The first time was for a friend's birthday and we all brought in snack and finger foods to share. The second was to see a band play on my birthday. Both times it has been a great experience and I really enjoyed their Cider. This is one of my favorite places in Waynesville. I highly recommend.

“My favorite brewery in town!”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

I'm a local. I frequent this brewery the most. The beer is always consistent and delicious. They always have a lot of great brews on tap.

“Great beer, relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

A kind of out of the way brewery. The beer is excellent, probably my favorite of the locally brewed beer in Waynesville but it's so tucked away I rarely remember to go here. The atmosphere is laid back which is great and dog friendly. Sometimes I am annoyed by people who allow their dogs to just roam around places though because if I am enjoying a beer, I don't need Fido sniffing at my legs. Skipping Stone Stout is fantastic! I've never been for the live music but hear it's a fun place to hang out when bands are playing. Every time I have been inside there are less than 5 people so it is not a place to socialize or meet new people. It's kind of quiet--a great place for conversation with friends or if you're on a date.

“GOING AGAIN”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This is now called BEARWATERS BREWERY.
It is located a quarter mile or less behind the Sagebrush Steak Restaurant in a small industrial/warehouse area.
Besides the remarkably excellent home brewed beer this place place is a rarity for allowing you to bring your pet inside on a leash while enjoying some cold brew.
No food is served here so eat before you come!
The owner, Melanie. was very friendly and makes you feel right at home. I am only sorry we will not be here for the big Oktober Fest she is having at BEARWATERS next month.
Nothing fancy here but a relaxing atmosphere with a small band on weekends and some outstanding cold beer.

Great local brews and enjoy the laid-back environment. There are bands usually on weekends that are def interesting. The red beer is my fav while my husband enjoys the heftier ones.
