ON THE WEEKENDS (Saturday & Sunday [Sunday after Twelve Noon] ) We Also Serve 6oz MIMOSAS (featuring LaMarca Proseco and OJ). Wine Glass Pours Are also AVAILABLE for YOU to ENJOY While Shopping. THANK YOU for YOUR CONTINUED PATRONAGE! 

Located smack-dab-in-the-middle of the North Carolina Blue Ridge, and the Eastern Continental Divide, your Lowes Foods Banner Elk Beer Den is headquarters for some of the best Craft Brewed Beer one might ever find. With six taps at your service, our Beer Den features a wide variety of the best craft beers for your enjoyment, including a number of North Carolina Breweries such as 'Blind Squirrel', 'Flat Top', 'Lost Province' & 'AMB' (just to name a few of our Proud State Brew). In fact, did you know (with 177 breweries and growing) NC is now considered the hub of the Eastern Brewcraft. That's a whole lot of suds to be proud of. 

Now that we are formerly introduced, please consider yourself a welcome patron at our 'Beer Den'. Our Blue Ridge traditions are simple and down-home: when you find yourself in the neighborhood, stop by for some 'Beer Den Hospitality'. We will share a sample or two of our latest on-tap brew, pour you a pint and gladly fill your growler. Heck, we just might swap some legendary tales born right here within the Blue Ridge Mountains. And, for those of you who prefer wine, we will happily pour you a glass while visiting our store.

Hope to see you soon and often - Your Beer Den Master, Peter. . .
