The Lion and the Rose
Bed & Breakfast
April 23, 2023
Greetings Fellow Beer Lovers!
We are extremely proud to be the only Asheville Bed and Breakfast that brews our own beer. We have had two different styles of beers on tap for a few years now. Most beer lovers will agree, there is nothing quite like having a cold beer on a relaxing front porch to start off your vacation.
Home brewing started as a hobby about eight years ago. Our adventures in brewing started from a love of beer and a curiosity to learn the process of brewing craft beer. To us, it was an experiment similar to trying out new recipes. We both like to be hands on and test out new things to find what we like. Then, the best part is creating something interesting and different to share with everyone.
Upon deciding to change careers to become innkeepers, we still wanted to continue the brewing hobby. After discussing it over, we felt that it was a no brainer to incorporate our beer into the B&B. It seemed like a natural fit in Beer City USA and we wanted to create a Beer, Bed and Breakfast experience in Asheville for all of our fellow craft beer lovers. How cool it would be to have our own beer as a unique amenity! And how appropriate it is that the name of the inn comes from the first owners’ favorite pub in England, The Lion and the Rose.
We’ve brewed all styles from the heavier beers such as stouts and porters to traditional lagers and pale ales to the funky sour beers. We always have two different styles on tap and offer it to our guests as a welcome pint upon arrival. We’ve had fun with everything from beer hours to summer beer slushies. And of course, we continue to serve our famous beermosas with breakfast every Sunday. Most guests agree that they are better than mimosas. And they sure are a fun addition to complement Sunday’s breakfast of our signature orange ricotta pancakes.
It has been so much fun sharing our beers with guests and we love experimenting with different beer theme ideas. From beercations to special limited edition holiday beers, we are here to offer you a beer inspired getaway in Asheville.
On the note of new and exciting, we are so happy to now be offering an in room beer tap for just the two of you. Name the style of beer you prefer and as long as we have at least two weeks before your arrival, we can brew it specifically for you. If booking within two weeks, we can still fill your personal in-room keg with the guest favorite, our wheat beer, or the other seasonal we have on tap.
So far we’ve gotten a good buzz about this new option and we hope that you’re as excited as we are. We love to have you all stay longer and feel like you’re at home. This in room beer tap is just another unique amenity we hope that you will love and it’s a little extra incentive to stay another night or two 🙂
Our Craft Beer Package is now available for booking on our website. You can also give us a call to request your favorite type of beer. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about our beer or about any of the Asheville breweries.
This special offer is exclusive to those guests who book direct with us. It is not available to those who book via a third party website. This package is valid for booking in all rooms except Margaret Grace.
And in the coming months, we will be adding two souvenir logo pint glasses with your in room tap. Keep checking back on our website and social media for more details.
This Bed and Breakfast is meant to have lions (as in our two little friendly lion dog Shih Tzus), roses in our gardens and cold beer as a refreshing welcome. All coupled together with warm hospitality from the innkeepers/brewers, this makes a relaxing and fun environment to call home while visiting Asheville. We hope to welcome you home soon! And remember, there are no strangers here, only friends you have not yet met!
