Home Away From Home
Our spacious taproom, Turgua on the Creek, is located along the banks of Fairview's beautiful Cane Creek. Originally a tractor sales and repair shop, the taproom has been completely renovated into a bright and open space. Although the tractors are long gone, the large open doors remain.
When you walk in be sure to notice the door at our main entrance. Look familiar? That is because it was upcycled from the old Altamont Theater, an iconic building in historic downtown Asheville.
The renovation included a custom carved wood-edged copper top bar that is wrapped in recycled barrel staves. Behind the bar resides 24 taps that pour an eclectic variety of beer, cider, and mead all made by Turgua Brewing.
Enjoy your food and drinks in the cool of the taproom or under the sun on the deck or in the ample outdoor space by the creek. Be sure to check out the events calendar to see our live music and daily food truck line up!

This is our batch from last year’s apples. As you probably remember 2021 was not a good year for apples. Some local areas had 80% less production than the previous year! We were not even sure we could get enough juice for our cider production. Given the small selection of local 2021 apples we are please with the results of this cider.
