Main St. in historic downtown Franklin, the municipal buildings have been transformed into a fully functioning production craft brewery, complete with taproom, an outdoor patio, and outdoor event space.

Lazy Hiker Brewing Co. opened in May 2015 and was the first of its kind for Franklin. It continues the expansion and success of craft beer in Western North Carolina. Around the region you'll find plenty more craft breweries to explore; the Asheville Ale Trail will take you from Franklin to the heart of Asheville and back again.

Lazy Hiker Brewing Co. is crafting beer and community that are fresh and honest. The brewery invites hikers and travelers of every sort to come visit, take it slow, be a part of the community, and pick their own craft favorites. Welcome to Franklin's hometown brewery...Cheers!

  • Such a cool, fun place. Everyone was so friendly! Great beer. Great tee shirts. Great food truck in the parking lot.
  • WOW... nice brewpub. Would have given 5 stars but my brew of choice wasn't available in cans. The food truck was very good, probably one of the best we have tried. Had the Korean pork sandwich, wife had the Mad burger. Excellent. PS... got my beer in a growler so 4 1/2 half stars.
