Hit Pisgah on my from Charlotte to Asheville. As previous posters have mentioned, I was questioningif I was in the right place. Old brick warehouse buildings and a small winding path are what lead you to a nondescript office door. Once you walk in you step down some apparently hand made steps to the tasting room. As for this room, imagine if your buddy had a really big garage with a large bar. There was punk music playing on the stereo with some sort of concert footage on a video screen where the band sets up. This isn't really a tasting area. More like a dive bar in a brewery. Not a big deal for me though. I've been in worse. There was however one very bad episode in my visit, and it was pretty major. There is no A/C in the bar and a large fan blowing in the rear corner of the bar. As I walk in I smell a VERY distinct odor I recognize from the gym. Thats right fellas, its B.O. and a very aggressive case. The fan is blowing it all over the bar. It was retched. I began moving around the bar area conducting my investigation as to who was the culprit. After clearing the other patrons I realized it was the young lady behind the bar. Her unshaved armpits were emanating an odor that can only be described as rotten onions meet 3 day old road kill. Now I know Pisgah and Black Mountain for that matter are very liberal "granola" type places and I'm a big tent kind of guy but hygiene and deoderant are not evil tools of the man. If you are representing the brewery behind the bar you should keep yourself clean and odor free. My family and I had to brave the Mars like sun and heat at the outdoor picnic tables rather than breathe the noxious air in the bar. Beer was great but everyone already knows that. Anyway maybe this was just a one off experience (I hope). As I said I am a big fan of Pisgah beers. Just not a fan of body stench.
