Appalachian Mountain Brewery (AMB) was founded in 2013 and was the first brewery in Boone, NC. 

Also born and raised in the North Carolina mountains are founders Nathan and Chris who built the foundation of high-quality beer rooted in the principles of community, philanthropy and sustainability. Almost a decade later, those principles remain true to our day-to-day business as AMB partners with local groups to give back to the community and protect the environment, and purchases local ingredients to use at the brewery and within the brewing process. Along with deep involvement throughout the community, our high-quality beer speaks for itself! AMB has participated in the Great American Beer Festival, the highest-rated, most competitive beer competition in the country, and has earned several medals including our Not an IPA (Silver Medal), Boone Creek Blonde (Gold Medal) and Lager (Gold Medal). 

AMB around the community

AMB has a 501©(3) public charity, the We Can So You Can foundation, that supports community growth and protects surrounding nature. A portion of the proceeds from every case of beer sold goes to this charity.

We partner with BeeDowntown, sponsoring multiple beehives around the state in an effort to protect and help raise awareness of the bee population. The honey from these hives helps make our Boone Creek Blonde Ale and other beers each year!

We partner with The Long Leaf Alliance and plants a tree for every case of Long Leaf IPA sold. Since 2016, over 120,000 trees have been planted!

AMB strives to create a sustainable brewing process and have teamed up with several local farms to donate spent grain for the cattle feed. This helps us to divert grain from ending up at landfills and helps local farmers make ends meet saving up to 50+ tons of feed per year!
