North Carolina 3 City Beer Tour – First Stop ‘Frog Level’ in Waynesville NC

During our latest visit to North Carolina we were fortunate enough to visit five local breweries, during the next five weeks you will see a series of blog post, one for each brewery. First up, Frog Level.

Frog Level Brewing Company seems to be the local beer hole for the tight knit community of Waynesville. A place to socialize, play a few games, and listen to live music on a Saturday night. During our visit an excellent cover band played Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix and other classics.   Frog level has an impressive amount of brews considering brewery space available.   Rustic decor littered throughout and a warm social atmosphere brought back memories of episodes of Cheers. The brewery was well attended, most of the crowd seemed to be middle aged and attitudes were very laid back.

Beers were categorized by flavor, on one side of the menu ‘Seasonals’ are featured, the other side year round brews.  Seating is available both indoors and out. Unfortunately when we went, it was a cold, wet, and rainy night,  so we weren’t able to take advantage of the huge deck out back. Things to do besides drinking to occupy one’s time include a variety of games: Janga, Air Hockey, Shuffle Board, Corn Hole and even a Wii with a bunch of games to play. Important info if your more of a lightweight or a designated driver, like me. A Guest Wifi network also showed up as available on my phone, password is required.  If you get hungry after all the game playing, a handful of snacks are available for purchase, but be aware, this is not a restaurant.

If your looking for a souvenir or two to take home both beer and beer swag are available. Prices (at the time of our visit): Cans 12oz 6 packs $15-$17, 16oz 4 packs $18, 16oz Draft $4.50-$6.50, 32oz $12 Growler, $10 Refill, $15 Seasonal. 64oz $15 Growler, $12 Refill, $20 Seasonal.

If your looking to buy Frog Level beers elsewhere, they are sold in some stores. We heard a patron mention that  Ingles and some gas stations in North Carolina have them, not sure about if their brews are available in other states though.
