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.

🚨PART TWO 🚨 Legend has it, that when the clock strikes 5pm on October 21st, Oktoberfesters will have completed their transformation into flesh-eating & beer-drinking, insatiable zombies. :: Are you ready to give your all to the crawl? ::

If you dare, join us at 1 for a merry afternoon of German biers, lederhosen, pretzels, and games then experience the zombie transformation. :: We’ll have a face painter on site to assist with your zombification. ::

At the conclusion of Oktoberfest, the zombie hoard will depart on the brewery crawl beginning at @cellarestbeerproject and drinking up all the beer on the trail to @wedgebrewing :: We can’t wait to crawl with y’all. ::
