April is NC Beer Month

April showers might bring May flowers, but in Asheville, April means one thing – NC Beer Month – an entire month dedicated to our locally brewed frothy favorites.

While local breweries bring great events, Asheville Premier Transportation is ready to give you the goods and take a drive down South for some of our favorite “just outside of Asheville” ways to celebrate NC Beer Month. Asheville Premier Transportation offers customizable brewery tours throughout Asheville and Western North Carolina. Perfect for bachelor/ bachelorette parties, birthdays or small groups!


Here’s a few of our favorite “Hop-penings”


Sierra Nevada

Just a 30 minutes south of Asheville is kicking off April with showers of new brews and fresh live music. We certainly recommend taking one of their 45 minute production facility tours while you are there. Trust us, it’s worth it! They are also bringing us a Sierra Nevada Taproom Series throughout April featuring live local music to get your toes tapping and those taps teeming.
