Spent 10 minutes circling the block on which this place is located. Almost didn't realize that you have to drive around to the back side into a dirt lot beside the railroad tracks. Once we found the place, we sidled up to the bar. Pints (or snifters for the high gravity stuff) were going for $3.50, a definite plus.

As it was a warm (not hot) early evening, the wife and I hit the deck with a bowl full of (complementary) peanuts. There is a nice shaded patio to the side of the tasting room with some typically funky Ashevillian art.

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable hour there just relaxing at the end of the day.

A short ride on the W1 (or W2) bus from downtown drops you off in the River Arts District, an evolving neighborhood where old warehouses have been converted into galleries, restaurants, cafes and one excellent 1300 barrel brewpub called Wedge Brewing Company.

Wedge Brewing can be found in the lower section of Wedge Studio, itself located in a building that once housed livestock in the 19th Century. Literally situated adjacent to railroad tracks, Wedge can be reached via Lyman Avenue, or down a staircase hidden behind several exhibits of iron sculpture.

It is as quaint a place as anyone can relax and enjoy some quality craft beer. Enter the taproom, which takes up a small corner of the brewery; check the chalkboard for whatever beer is available (about 8 drafts), order a pint or a sampler and then head outside and grab a seat at one of the communal tables. Note: there is neither table service nor is there any inside service. Another Note: Wedge offers an express IPA window for their delightful Third Rail. Also on tap is a complex Abbey style, a hoppier West Coast IPA and a hearty porter. Should you desire something to eat, there is a food truck parked next to the entrance. The patio is a lively place with locals, tourists, kids and dogs.

Hard to find, but plenty of parking if you park by the train tracks. This area is very trendy/hipster, which is not really my thing. My rating is skewed given that I don't fit in with that scene. The decor of the building is cool and very interesting. Long lines to get beer as the bar was not laid out well. Long lines for bathrooms as well. The beer was OK, nothing really amazing. Prices were very cheap with $6 flights of 4. Most of the seating I saw was outside, not even sure if inside seating is an option as I only went to the Bar and IPA window.

Thought all the steel artwork around this place was incredible. Great atmosphere, friendly people, and above all, tasty brews! I don't think I had one that I didn't like, but their Biere De Garde stood out over them all. Also love the fact that this place is located below a bunch of art galleries that are open to the general public, so got to see some great art as well. Would definitely go back if I'm ever in Asheville again, and highly recommend it.

It's a very cool space in a very cool area of town, and I can see why there is such a draw for this place. We were there just after it opened on a Weds afternoon, and even then it got crowded quickly. The beers on the other hand knocked the score down for me a bit. I had the ipa and the double ipa, and neither of them agreed well with my palette. Besides the flavors not being great, they both seemed under carbonated to me. I did try my wife's beer (she had the Czech pilsner ), and I thought her beer was significantly better than the two I had. With so many choices of cool places to go for a beer here in the Asheville area, I could possibly see coming back here only once in a while, and if I do, it will definitely be for the atmosphere rather than the beer. Also, it isn't very kid friendly, which is fine for the kind of crowd they seem to cater to, but does limit my chances for getting there more often, and might matter to some people researching this place.
