Named for the popular and nearby Green River and its eddies that attract whitewater adventurers from far and wide, the cozy log cabin adventure retail store was renovated in spring 2018 to include the tap room. The inside of Green River Eddy’s features a winding bar made from locally sourced hickory and hand-shaped copper that leads to the outdoor deck. There you will find additional seating under umbrellas on warmer days and near warm fire pits for those cool summer evenings.

The bar currently sports 14 taps with a selection of more than 30 craft beers in cans and bottles from the Asheville, Charlotte and Greenville area, as well as your favorite domestic beers and a wine selection.
