Coming here on the way to zip lining, it was tucked behind another business (maybe a fast food chicken chain?) and looked like a farmhouse. Bright blue with 2 silos on the outside, it didn't resemble a brewery until parking (and don't mind the spaceship that looks like it came down and struck the building!). Lets walk in and break this place down by each category.
Walking in, each silo was filled with tables. The one by the bar (where I sat) had a moon on the wall and then a crest of some sort hanging from the ceiling. Very random but cool. The bar looked like a Pipe Works game as it was painted behind the row of tap handles. Whoever was the artist here (for both the brewery AND tap handles/bottles/cans is very talented! Tons of color and detail pop out.
While waiting for my pizza, enjoyed the Red Light IPA and chatted with the bartender. Very friendly and suggested what other breweries I got to on my trip (cool they promote other local breweries).
Their selection was very nice on-tap but had to block out what they had in bottle... Coors, A.B., and Corona were all hanging out on the side of the bar and ruining it for me. One of the servers caught that I was looking at these and replied "it hurts me too".
We enjoyed the Biltmore Pizza and suggest you do the same! Tons of Green Peppers, Banana Peppers, White Onion, and Pepperoni filled this Hand Tossed pizza and enjoyed it with their home-made garlic sauce. MMM!!
With Asheville, NC being the "Beer Capital" of the Nation, I think they should receive the award of Pizza Capital as well! I suggest this place plus many others I've already visited in the area.
