Coming full circle: BearWaters Brewing opens Waynesville location
Founder/co-owner of BearWaters, it’s been a long, arduous road for Sandefur — blood, sweat, tears and craft beer. Known as “The Warehouse,” this latest endeavor in West Waynesville will not only be the brewery’s third brick-n-mortar spot — with Riverside in Canton and Creekside in Maggie Valley — but also a truly full circle moment for Sandefur & Co.
By 2016, Sandefur teamed up with food/beverage professional Art O’Neil, and the duo soon launched the popular BearWaters Riverside brewery/restaurant along the Pigeon River in downtown Canton. Not long after came the BearWaters Creekside on Soco Road in the west side of Maggie Valley.

Featuring a full arcade/game room, pickleball/cornhole courts and axe-throwing cages, the vast space also houses a taproom with several handcrafted ales ready to pour.
