After a stop at Craggie, I walked around the corner to Asheville Brewing for dinner and more beer. This downtown location is spacious. A long bar stretches to the left of the door, the turns towards the center of the room. Liquor and wine are served as well as their own beer.

The food menu featured pizza and calzones, but also had a pretty extensive list of sandwiches, salads and pastas. I ordered a calzone with sausage, mushrooms, and peppers, and it was HUGE. It was also quite tasty.

Asheville Brewing had about ten taps. I had their Nina Porter, Scout Stout and Shiva IPA. I preferred the Stout. The Shiva was okay, but I wanted a bigger hop kick than it delivered. They also run one beer through a randal every thursday, but I arrived too late to try the white ale through raspberries.

I received excellent service on my visit. I had a super bartender, that really made my stay worth while. I also met one of the brewers, Trey. He gave me a quick tour of the brewhouse, and gave me a little insight into the Asheville scene.

Asheville Brewing was my best stop on the first leg of my NC journey.

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.
