Hillman Beer is one of my favorite spots to go with my husband to grab a snack and a beer. They always have seating available, I love their airy indoor space and their huge outdoor area, and I haven’t tasted a beer/sandwich I haven’t liked. Plus they are located in Biltmore Village, right next to Catawba Brewing (another one of my favorite places), shopping, and other restaurants.
Things to consider:
-Vegetarian and vegan options
-They serve wine too! (this is rare for most Asheville breweries) and usually have a local cider on tap
-They source their food locally (woohoo!)
-They have their own parking lot plus other nearby parking lots
-Large outdoor area with games
-Good for large groups
-Tuesday nights they have Trivia from 7-9
-No table service. Order drinks/food at the bar and they’ll give you a number and deliver your food to you
-Burger Wednesdays: Burger (flavors change weekly), beer, and side for $12 every Wednesday
Pictured above is the kale salad. I get it every time I go! It’s light, tart, and a little bit sweet. The ingredients as listed on the menu are pickled raisins, pumpkin seeds, pecorino cheese, lemon, and extra virgin olive oil...yum! If you're not a kale person, try one of their mouthwatering sandwiches like the Patty Melt or Grilled Cheese (that’s what my husband went for), apps, and/or desserts, all by Rise Above Deli. And then wash it down with one of Hillman’s refreshing brews.
