WNC Outdoor Collective


Black Mountain, NC has some very cool gear shops and some very cool places to grab a beer, but WNC Outdoor Collective is the best of both worlds! Awesome vibe, great staff, a very solid local beer selection, and a ton of awesome outdoor gear. I might never leave! I had a Brevard Brewing Company brewing 🍻🍻lager that I really enjoyed, so they're going to have to be next on our brewery visit list!
Rolling out of North Carolina now, but the last few months have been awesome Asheville. DEFINITELY will be back to not just Asheville, but also to Swannanoa, Weaverville and Black Mountain (all of which are wonderful). Thanks so much to all the great places and venues that had me out for solo shows, including...
White Horse Black Mountain
12 Bones Brewing
The Town Pump Tavern
Black Mountain Center for the Arts
Root Bar
Continuum ART
WNC Outdoor Collective
Sim Hickman Louly Peacock
**All Flyer Art By Asheville Artist Robbie Pi**
Saturday at 3pm at WNC Outdoor Collective is the place to be!

Time to sign up, y'all!
We will see you on the trail! And then next door at our neighbor's spot for a pint after!

Meet Josh Coe 👇 "I have been interested in through-hiking the Appalachain Trail since I was 11 years old. On April 30 of 2021 I set out to achieve my dream, and on Oct 3 2021, I sumitted Mt. Katahdin and completed my journey North. The trail was the best adventure I’ve ever had. I have lived in Black Mountain since the fall of 2016 and I love it here. In addition to the AT, I have also backpacked in New Mexico, Alaska, and all throughout Western North Carolina. If anyone wants to talk about their own adventures or learn about the trail, I would love to connect over coffee or a beer anytime!"

Join Josh each Thursday evening at 6:30 pm for Adventure Trivia Night @ The Collective!


Come pitch your idea of “giving back” to the community tonight and get $$$ to make it happen.

We now carry 32 color-ways and styles of our favorite local shoe brand! While we're on the topic, let's share a few of our favorite Astral fun facts:

DYK? Philip Curry, Astral Founder + CEO, sold his first business to Patagonia.

In 2002, Astral began on a biodynamic farm outside of Asheville, NC in the headwaters of the Rocky Broad River.
