How it all started

The story of One World Brewing begins at the home of Jay and Lisa Schutz. Jay had home-brewed for years as a hobby alongside his stonemason business, and shared his passion with friends and family. Lisa and Jay knew that they loved craft beer, and when Lisa’s brother offered them the opportunity to open a brewery below his new location of his restaurant in downtown Asheville, it was the time to take a leap of faith.


The original brewery

In 2014, the first location of One World Brewing opened in the cozy, speakeasy-style space below Farmburger, at 10 Patton Ave. As expected from the beer-loving city of Asheville, demand grew and soon, Lisa and Jay realized expansion was imminent.

Expanding Our World

In an abandoned building in West Asheville, The One World team put their heart and soul into breathing new life into what would become their second location. Our team grew to include new co-owner, Thomas Perry, and manager Lindsay Andrasik. After two years of hard work, One World West opened in 2018. True to our roots, the brand new 10-barrel brewhouse is located below ground, underneath the West Asheville taproom. The bar is spacious and welcoming, but the real jewel of this location is the ample outdoor space, allowing patrons to enjoy amazing beer on the patios, decks, and yard. The West Asheville taproom hosts a wide variety of special and regular events, from yoga to an electronic music & beer festival, and everything in between.


Brewing with intention

With two unique locations, built inside buildings that were previously cast aside, One world brews with the intention of fostering nourishing interaction and artistic cultural experiences. From live music to art shows, “One World Brewing” is born from the magic that happens when the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. We only have one Earth, and in order to preserve the life we love, we must work together on all fronts. Our taprooms are intersections for people of all walks of life and different corners of the globe, enjoying this time and place together.
