Stopped in here for the first time during a recent trip to asheville. Obvious college atmosphere upon entry, as there were groups of kids playing bag-o in the outdoor section.
Wasn't immediately sure whether it was seat yourself or wait to be seated, but as we didn't see any open seats except at the bar it didn't really matter. Still, we stood near the entrance for close to 5 min without any of the staff saying a word to us. Finally one of the waitresses came over and sat us at a table that had just cleared.
They had, I believe, 5 of their beers on tap at the time, and a couple on their menu that i asked for they no longer had. All the beer was servicable but nothing all that distinct. The fact that now, a few months later, i can't even remember which was my favorite, should give some indication as to the how memorable anything was.
Pizza was ok, nothing great, or even as good as the pub dog in baltimore that i had just visited a few weeks prior. To top that off, the waitress charged us for a large pizza when we had ordered a medium. When i brought this to her attention, she told us that "the mediums here are larges" or something to that effect. She still wouldn't change the bill though, and I didn't see the point in arguing.
Leaving the service out of it though, it's a pretty average brewpub all in all. If i was still in college i'm sure i would have been there frequently. As it is now, i doubt i will be returning.

great pizza & food! they have a lunch buffet that looked & smelled wonderful, but we werent that hungry & decided on splitting a plate & appetizer. pizza looked really good & everything we had was great. nice mixture of indoor or outdoor seating. service is good/average. beers are good/average, as well.
i would go back & recommend for the food (not just as a destination for just the beer). convenient to downtown.
