Live Music

Great beer and live music—from local artists to national tours (pictured: Drive-By Truckers)—combine at Sierra Nevada.

Live music and craft beer under the Carolina sky.

Good music and great beer have always gone hand in hand, and our music spaces in Mills River are the perfect places to showcase them both. We host live music as it ought to be experienced—under the open sky with a beer in hand! Come out to our outdoor amphitheater and enjoy the best rhythm, blues, and brews Western North Carolina has to offer.
