Enjoy some peace and quiet and stunning views at the top of Hawksbill Mountain, then finish the day at Fonta Flora Brewing in nearby Morganton, NC.
This 1.5-mile round-trip hike to the summit of Hawksbill Mountain (elevation 4,009 ft.) has an amazing payoff with panoramic views of the canyon of Linville Gorge Wilderness Area - with the valley floor and Linville River 2,000 ft. below you. On a clear day, you can even see the skyline of Charlotte - about 90 miles away! The strenuous hike climbs about 700 ft. in elevation, so allow plenty of time. It's definitely one of our favorite hikes near Asheville!
Try this year's Festbier at Archetype Brewing's Oktoberfest on Saturday! Food, corn hole, beer and festivities, what more could you ask for?
Bust out the Lederhosen and steins, it’s time for the third annual release of the Archetype festbier! This year, we’re moving the party over to Archetype Broadway! Delicious food, beer and fun. Who’s ready for Oktoberfest?!
2019 Festbier will be on tap at noon, with all new Oktoberfest glassware! It's the best damn festbier in town! A Vienna-style lager, crisp, clean and session-able. It’s got notes of bread, and light citrus with a bright effervescence. 'Tis the season! Prost!
Cornhole Tournament - 2pm - sign up the bar when you arrive!
Maßkrugstemmen (Stein Hoist) - 4pm - How long can YOU hold up two steins full of beer? Prizes for strongest man and woman!
Food - 12pm - 7pm - brats, hot dogs, and soft pretzels, of course!
