Here in Asheville, our cup runneth over with places to grab a drink — but there are some new spots to put on your radar for your next happy hour. From breweries to wineries to rooftop bars, drink in the details on the new additions and highly anticipated openings in the beverage scene.

What’s new

TRVE Brewing Co., 255 Short Coxe Ave.
The Denver-based brewery opened up its Asheville location on Thursday, March 14. What can you expect from the new spot? Beer and metal. There are plenty of brews on tap to choose from (we recommend the Obsidian Imperial Stout) as you take in the dark, hard rock vibe.

Top Dog, 81 Coxe Ave.
This Miami-themed rooftop bar is from Boomer’s Bourbon and Cigar Bar, sitting atop the lounge space. Kick back and enjoy a tropical cocktail — we have our eye on the Havana Nights.

Euda Wine, 164 Commerce St., Old Fort
Take the ~30-minute journey outside Asheville to explore Old Fort’s first winery from husband and wife duo Michael and Abi McGeary. The winery is hosting a grand opening celebration on Saturday, March 30 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., with new wine releases and food from Root Down.

What’s on the way

Terra Nova Beer Co., 101 S. Lexington Ave.
The brewery will open in the former site of Bhramari Brewing on the South Slope to serve up craft beer and pies from the highly acclaimed Mission Pizza. It’s expected to open this spring, but while you wait for a date, check out the brewery’s murals being painted by artist Amar Stewart.

VISUALS Rooftop Bar, 10 Buxton Ave.
Soon you’ll be able to sip on the native fermented wines, ciders, and aperitifs made by the folks from Burial Beer Co. The rooftop bar is under construction, slated to open this spring.

Imperiál, 48 College St.
The cocktail bar is moving — but not far. Imperiál will expand into the downstairs space that Zella’s Deli occupies, with Zella’s moving into the former Loott House location at 2373 US 70 in Swannanoa.
