Outside Magazine rates Jack of the Wood as a best adventure bar in the U.S.

Outside Magazine published its lists of best adventure bars in the U.S. (five separate lists, one for each region), and guess who rated in the Southern list.

3. Jack of the Wood
Asheville, North Carolina
Following a singletrack session down Bent Creek, in Pisgah National Forest, cyclists trade their saddles for an outdoor table at Jack of the Wood, taking in house-brewed IPA and live Irish music. Be sure to sneak down the street to their tasting room, where you can sample the bar’s newest concoctions.

    Big time fail on that pick (not that I dislike JOW). They should have chosen The Hub in Brevard where you can actually ride directly from the trail to the bar.

    That list was published in July 2010 …. late on the news … maybe they should stop back through town and check out the Bywater … the ONLY “paddle up” joint in town!
