West Asheville Location:


has some fantastic local craft beers, we showcase something different. Our goal is to provide unique offerings that aren’t the same beers served at other bars around town. We handpick each selection of world-class craft beer from around the globe while paying special attention to quality and history. Often, we are fortunate to brew collaborative beers with local and regional breweries that are “Whale Exclusives”.

Well-behaved dogs are always welcome inside and on the patio. Food is available to be ordered from the Haywood Common Kitchen, which is adjacent to the bar.

We invite you to come in and enjoy a “White Whale” you have always wanted to try and have never gotten your hands on. Quench your thirst with your favorite ol’ reliable German pilsner. Pick a wild card and sip something you have never seen or heard of, but are glad you discovered it at The Whale :: A Craft Beer Collective.
