Kettell Beerworks creates high-quality craft beer on Main Street East in Banner Elk.
The brewery typically has 10-12 styles of beer available in the taproom. There are four year-round flagship offerings: Rollcast Kolsch, Top Coast IPA, Profile American Pale Ale and Big Falls Nutty Brown Ale. Those four are complemented by a rotating variety of seasonal beers and experimental small batches.
Kettell beers are named after local landmarks and activities. For example, the Profile American Pale Ale is named for the Profile Trail at Grandfather Mountain, while the Rollcast Kolsch derives its name from the roll-casting technique of fly fishing. The Top Coast IPA refers to the NC High Country itself, where clean and pure mountain spring water is a key for high-quality beers.
Kettell also has a variety of nonalcoholic soft drink options and simple snacks for munching. Meanwhile, patrons are welcome to bring their own food. Kettell is a family-friendly brewery offering such activities as: arcade games, board games, darts, corn hole and occasional live music.
The brewery distributes its flagship beers to restaurants and pubs around Banner Elk, as well as other establishments in the High Country region.
