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.

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.

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.
