This is the pub that opened my eyes to what a decent downtown Asheville has. Earlier reviews give it higher marks for the basement taps, but I think they do a good job upstairs as well.
It is one of the many good beer pubs Asheville has, I always visit TM when wife is wandering the craft stores or festivals.
I also like the fact that younger bar staff treated a middle aged guy pretty well, friendly service.
The also do some food, good, but go mostly for the beer.

An open bar upstairs with lots of seating a good selection of American taps both local and regional we chose to sit downstairs where they serve Belgian sours and barrel aged brews had a nice cellar feel downstairs with a coffee house feel cool and dark with a smaller bar than upstairs and a different vibe a nice selection of sours with all the samples you would like to try , TM is a good stop especially downstairs bot nothing over the top upstairs but recommended

This seems like the kind of place that used to be great before Asheville was a great beer town. The upstairs bar was 85% American beers that are widely available nationally (or nearly nationally).
Sour fest was going on downstairs when I visited, and that selection was somewhat lacking for a bar that's supposedly world class. It was not busy, yet the bar service was slow. If you live in a decent beer town, skip this place.
