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 in the Carolina Mountains.

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. Join us for these free weekly jams featuring local and touring acts in our outdoor amphitheater located among the serene and beautiful trees in our Back Porch. For an intimate, small venue setting, come enjoy the music inside High Gravity above our Taproom. Grab a beer and enjoy the best rhythm, blues, and brews Western North Carolina has to offer.

Hustle Souls

We are excited to add our Saturday Sunset Series to the weekend mix with Hustle Souls from 7pm to 9:30pm. Come experience our new sound system and lighting.
Hustle Souls is a feel-good, power-house Soul act based in Asheville, NC. Inspired song-craft meets high-voltage jams, 4 part vocal harmony, New Orleans trumpet, and one of the most creative rhythm sections in a long time. The band has earned their reputation, from Tennessee to New York City, as one of the most exciting bands to watch in the South. With undeniable originality, the music pushes the nostalgic sounds of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, into modern and refreshing territory.
The 4 piece band: Billy Litz (vocals/keys/trumpet), Chris Everrett (guitar/vocals) Sean McCann (Bass/Vocals), Tommy Moore (Drums/vocals) formed in the growing music-mecca of Asheville, NC in 2015. The collaborative and eclectic band, whose members all sing and write for the group, have created a sound of their own that fits, comfortably but not neatly, into a Soul revival movement.
