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.
