Buck Bald Brewing
Fill a Pint. Fill a Growler. Fill Your Mind.
Nestled in scenic Murphy is a new iteration of a familiar face to many in area and a hidden gem for those who love craft beer.
After almost four years as a staple in Copperhill, Tennessee, Buck Bald Brewing has expanded into its second location, taking root in an the Historic Mill building on the edge of the growing downtown scene in far western North Carolina.
“We’d long had a vision for expansion of this brand, and in considering our area, Murphy seemed a perfect fit,” said owner and head brewer Patrick Keenan. “We felt the time was right toward the end of 2021 and immediately began scouting our options.”
With the help of tap room manager Matt Wright, Buck Bald found a home on the backside of an 1920s industrial warehouse at 104 Tennessee Street, and the vision came to life quickly.
“It was a whirlwind process to go from concept to opening the doors, but we’re thrilled with the product and so thankful for how the community has responded,” Wright said. “People are still discovering us each week, and we’re glad to be making so many new friends.”
Once inside the beautifully renovated space, you’ll find a warm, welcoming staff, ready to greet you and offer a friendly recommendation on any of the twelve offerings brewed in house.
And, as with the Copperhill, the beer is just as spectacular. With tastes ranging from the spicy, sweet, and sour cult favorite Mango Tango, an outstanding traditional porter in Party on the Patio, a refreshing west coast hop forward IPA in Yikes, Bobby!, or a lighter offering such as the Backpack Blonde, there’s something for every palate on tap.
If beer isn’t your thing, the housemade Peach Tea or a glass of pinot noir can also keep you coming back.
Need a spot to watch a game while you enjoy a cold one? Three TVs of college football should have you covered.
How about a spot to sit and enjoy the sunshine? The back patio is a perfect area to relax with a cold one and chat with friends.
There are even dog water bowls and biscuits available for your furry friends, who are welcomed to come along and chill, as well.
Outside food is also welcomed, and snacks are available for sale to keep you sated while enjoying.
Ultimately, there’s something for everyone in Murphy’s new hot spot, so, make sure to swing by Buck Bald Brewing when you’re in the area and follow their mantra: fill a pint, fill a growler, fill your mind.
