Easiest to find brewery in Asheville.

Went in on a Thursday afternoon for lunch. Looks like they had some sort of buffet going on but we just ordered a pizza to be able to take some leftovers for the road. The pizza was very good.

The place was nearly empty at late lunch, but there was a group huddled at the bar to watch the ACC tournament which was going on at the time. Lots of records on the wall and enough TVs to see but I don't think any of them had the volume on. If they did, it wasn't obnoxiously loud.

Service was more than adequate but not outstanding. Our waitress checked on us enough and was able to give the style and a brief description for every beer.

The beer was good but not great. There was a good variety of taps and I enjoyed the beer I had (their DIPA).

Overall, this place is very solid but not great in every respect. A good stop to make for a meal in Asheville since most of the better stops we made didn't serve food. It also wasn't the cheapest stop in Asheville, although saying that just means it was slightly below average priced compared to every other brewery I've been to in other cities.

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.
