What’s New in Brevard this Summer
Brevard and Transylvania County are always bustling and especially in the summer time.  In between big adventures and catching up with old favorites, it’s easy to miss some great new additions to Brevard’s downtown. From delicious restaurants and lively breweries to charming boutiques and the highly anticipated reopening of a beloved lodge, the list of what’s new in Brevard is pretty lengthy. Here are a few things that we’re all pretty excited about:

Poplar & Ash (22 W. Jordan St, Brevard). This cute and quirky boutique, located in the heart of downtown Brevard, promises to keep you on trend with artisan goods, accessories and unique apparel. 

Once you’ve found your new outfit, you might want to consider a delicious meal right around the corner at KTCHN (44 E. Main St, Brevard), a casual, friendly new eatery that puts a distinct spin on relaxed fare. The chopped salad and spicy shrimp BLT make a fantastic conclusion to a day spent exploring in our charming downtown or up in the forest by a waterfall.

Further up Main Street, Wolf Brew Bottle Shop, (36 E. Main St, Brevard) offers a varied, impeccably curated selection of beers, ales and otherwise from microbrews throughout the region and all over the world. Their knowledgeable staff will help you find your new favorite.

Just outside of downtown proper, Brevard’s historic Lumberyard Arts District is known for its exciting events, unique art, delicious food, and terrific live music. Asheville-based Upcountry Brewing (212 King St, Suite B, Brevard) has opened a taproom in the lumberyard with a selection of their celebrated microbrews. 

Across the street, Vescovo Neighborhood Eatery (175 King St, Brevard) has been generating plenty of well-deserved buzz for its fusion of mouthwatering Italian food, cocktails, wine, and a lovely vibe that manages to feel warm, neighborhood-y and slightly sophisticated all at once.
Further afield, you’ll find the charming Cedar Mountain Outpost. It’s a mercantile that promises craft beer and good vibes, to say nothing of its calendar of events, where you might just make a new friend.

Also close to DuPont Forest, is the Sneaky Moose Café, which offers a classic mix of ice cream, snacks, and beer to satisfy the weary adventurer. 

Finally, Earthshine Lodge (1600 Golden Rd, Lake Toxaway) has provided life-changing experiences in the mountains of Transylvania County since its opening in 1989. When it closed its doors last year, many mourned the loss of a truly unique retreat, where guests could enjoy solace, adventure and play host to a wide range of events. New owners Ali Lien and Anna Bracco have since reopened with a promise to make Earthshine better than ever, while retaining the magic that made it such a memorable place.
