Asheville Brewing Company was our savior after a absolutely horrible experience at Green Man Brewing.
We were so happy to have the bartender greet us, respond to our requests for a beer, and actually converse with us a bit.
The beer was pretty good, nothing special. The Shiva was pretty solid. The atmosphere was what you would expect from a pizza joint. Unfortunately it wasn't really warm enough for us to sit outside, which looked like a really nice space. A good spot to chill and people watch.
A bit out of the "downtown" area, but well worth the 3 block walk. Probably one of my favorite stops in Asheville.

Located around the corner from the excellent Hi-Wire Brewing Company, Asheville Brewing is one of the area’s older brewpubs – this location is where their beer is brewed and distributed; there are two others in the region. It is a popular venue, spacious, homey and bustling with families, tourists and regulars seeking out their beers. There is a small bar area towards the front with a dining area adjacent; in another room (where one can find the restrooms) is another dining area. Like many Asheville establishments, ABC offers a large (sheltered) outdoor patio.

There are usually eight drafts available: several of which are offered year-round. There most popular seems to be the Shiva IPA, which is refreshing while not overwhelmed by hops; others include a sessional IPA (Perfect Day), Ninja Porter and Scout Stout. Beers are available to go - as do most places in Asheville.

Food-wise, the menu contains the usual assortment of pub grub that involves an eclectic array of burgers, sandwiches and pizza. (That said, their buffalo wings can be described as palate melting. Hot! Really hot!) During the warmer months, ABC even shows movies. Nice touch and a very nice place for some decent beers. But one dares not tarry as Asheville offers much, much more ….. next stop: Burial Beer, which is another short walk.

Good location that was easy to find but it was dirty and seemed to be a hole in the wall. Food was not great, but I did not try pizza. The beers were average, with a few standouts like Shiva and Ninja. One of my least favorites places in Asheville, definitely not a must see. You can buy their core beers at any bottle shop in town and take them home.

This is a cool joint. Huge outdoor seating area underneath a roof making it all weather, with a ton of outdoor games, including jumbo jenga and magnetic wall checkers and chess. Plenty of seating indoors, as well, with booths and tables, as well as a shorter, straight bar. Three televisions throughout to air various sporting events or what not. 8 or so beers on tap, with beers to go in growlers. Plenty of swag available, as well. Good beers, too. The staff was friendly and quick to serve, and pretty knowledgeable about the beers. There was a pizza buffet going on while we were there, but we didn't eat. That was a fun joint, with a great vibe. Worth checking out if you are in the area.
