Take the road across from Barley's that goes by the parking lot and you can walk right to Asheville Brewing. It's about 3 blocks away. As stated it's in an old garage. They had 8 taps, all house brews. I didn't see any bottle selections. They also had a large selection of board games and a gameroom. I was driving and had already downed a couple of pints from Barley's so I didn't have any of their beers. But my usually macro drinking buddy really liked them. On this particular night it was open mic night and I was impressed at the talent that was playing. The service was average. You had to go to the bar to order a beer, but it was usually brought to you promptly. A previous review from October says that they will be brewing the beers on site in 3 weeks. As of now in Feb. the beers are still brewed at the theater and brought to Asheville Brewing in kegs. I would like to go back with someone else driving next time.

Walking in there is a smallish bar that is L shaped and can seat 10. Some booths and table fill the rest of the place including a slightly divided room in the back. Plenty of natural light from the windows here. A blackboard lists 15 beers on draft. Only had one Shiva IPA here and it was decent. Ordered some appetizers which were mediocre. Service was friendly but a bit slow, but there was a good crowd here.

My visit was on a Tuesday afternoon for a business trip. We were looking for somewhere to bide time and this brewpub seemed like a good choice. They have a nice outdoor area that is almost the size of the restaurant...looks like it would make a decent music venue, but currently hosted one family, several hipsters with dogs, and a couple of bums. We decided to eat inside because of the dogs and bums.

The brewery was very representative of Asheville with tattooed employees and a very social crowd. Maybe we chose the wrong menu items, but the beer and food were both just OK. Still not a bad place to relax, but with so many breweries in Asheville, I would pass over ABC next time.

Next we walked a ways past the local bus station and into the "brewery district" for a visit to one of the city's oldest (1998) craft breweries. The bar itself was small and a bit over-hot already at noon on this fine spring day, so we settled outside in the large covered patio. Service was a little spotty out there, but the servers were pleasant when they actually came to the table. They had a lot of beers of varying styles, but most were just mediocre. The best of the lot for me were the Bronson Oat Brown and the Holy Ninja Oyster Porter. A big deal was made about their recently released double IPA, but I didn't love it. The brewery is known for pizza, pub food, and being kid friendly. They can some their beers and I found them in restaurants and bars all over town. Worth a spin by, but not the best place we found in town.
