Building the Brewery, Brick by Brick

True to the mantra of the South, we believe that, “life is better on the porch.” We believe in people coming together and forming a community. We believe in sitting around talking and sharing experiences.  We believe in local food and local farms. We believe that good beer should be available to all. What could be better than fireflies and friends on the front porch of Sideways Farm and Brewery?  A front porch made out of bricks specially engraved for you and your friends.

We want YOU to be a part of our brewery. Purchase a brick to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, graduation, loved one, treasured pet, favorite cause, promote your organization, or just because you want to be part of our community. Some donors choose to remain anonymous, using only an image or quote, while others simply donate a brick bearing their family’s name. It’s up to you. Proceeds will help us build the brick patio in front of the brewery, filled with engraved bricks like yours.

Cut Field Flowers

Our blooms are lovingly grown in Etowah, NC using sustainable methods. We have touched every seed, watered every stem, and cut every bloom. These flowers aren’t your everyday grocery store flowers shipped across continents, saturated with chemicals, stored in a warehouse or dyed blue. We use nothing synthetic on our farm which leaves you with beautiful blooms that are safe to stick your nose in and inhale deeply!

Life is short - Enjoy Flowers!

Artisan Ales

Our story is one of a small Western North Carolina farm that is taking the craft of brewing back in time to when farmers grew their own ingredients and would craft fine artisan ales by hand. At Sideways Brewery it's about being small and agile, using what ingredients you have during the season they are available. It's about coexisting with nature and our surroundings.

Look for the brewery opening early 2018.

Nestled in the Mountains of Western North Carolina

Not far from Asheville and midway between Brevard and Hendersonville, our 11 acre farm is one of Etowah's historical farmlands dating back to the 1800's. Now as Sideways Farm & Brewery, we continue this tradition serving the local WNC community.

Live Different - Drink Different, it's more than a slogan

The barely standing 1800's corn crib on our property is a reminder of a different time, a time when people were more connected to their community and the natural world surrounding them. A time before industrial agriculture and mega-global corporations. Perhaps in some ways a simpler time, but not necessarily easier, when living local, buying local and drinking local were the norm.


Incorporating the crib into our logo serves to remind us of our stewardship of the land.  "We did not inherit the Earth from our ancestors we borrow it from our children."  At Sideways we are committed to sustainable practices that enrich our soils and to the production of nutritious, natural foods and products that are better for you - better for the planet.
