About The Whale
The Folks Behind The Whale
While the Asheville is known for it’s amazing local craft beer scene, longtime locals Andrew Ross and Jesse Van Note felt that the community needed a craft beer bar to showcase the best beer, not only from Asheville, but from all around the world. Having worked in the beer industry together for many years, they decided to venture out on their own and make it happen.
Asheville’s Destination Craft Beer Bar
The idea for The Whale :: A Craft Beer Collective was born: a tasting room for people to come together to enjoy sought-after beers, otherwise known as “Whales”, as well as other fine beverages such as wine, cider, mead, and sake. We invite you to come experience our vision which is unlike anywhere you have ever been.
