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.

This place rules. The bar area itself is not big at all, but when you add in all the outdoor seating, huge gaming areas in the parking lot, and space for the food trucks, this establishment has quite the spread. There were 9 beers on-tap during my visit, and there are growlers available for beer to go. The bartenders were friendly and attentive, and they sure were busy. On a Thursday evening, they were out straight, because the place was absolutely packed. There is a ton to do outside, including cornhole and other bar games, and there were a couple food trucks parked out there, as well. You really can settle in for the night here, with plenty to do for just about any type of person.
