I'm not sure about the band schedule. Sometimes they have bands and sometimes they don't. They may post a schedule on their website.

We serve our beer and local cider at the taproom, but we have a full bar including wine at our new brewpub. The Warehouse at Nantahala Brewing is just 100 yards down the street from our taproom.
