This is a funky little joint a few minutes from downtown. Up front is a pizza joint and bar with a decent selection of their own beers. In the back is a functioning movie theater!

I was a bit disappointed when I was there ... my top two choices (Ninja Porter and Shiva IPA) were both out. I ended up having the ESB (nice, middle of the road amber ale) while the wife had their "ESP" (extra special pale ale) which was basically the ESB with an extra dose of hops.

The pizza was excellent, the onion rings ok (I favor the really thin ones with a little breading ... these were thick with heavy batter). Definitely worth seeking out this place.

The last stop of the night brought us to Asheville Pizza and Brewing. As a matter of fact it was a happy accident finding this place. We were about to call it quit's and walking back to find a cab stumbled across a huge beer garden with a giant projection screen playing a rerun of that days Tour de France stage. We were drawn in as if by a tractor beam, not even sure what the place was at first.

Sitting outdoors we were immediately waited on by a friendly waitress that was quick to offer advice on both food and beer. Grabbed a pizza that was good drunk food if nothing exceptional and a pitcher of porter. The porter was enjoyable. It was a great night outside and being able to watch the Tour while eating pizza and drinking beer outdoors topped it off nicely. I'd recommend this place. It's a good time and good atmosphere.

What can I say about this place. Every time I come into town this is the place I always end up at least once. I love their beer, I have tried a number of them and have suffered the consequences, but you know it was worth it. They has such great beers from the Shiva to the Ninja and I have tried a few others in between. They also have a great selection of the harder stuff if you are so inclined and the pizza is some of the best around. They also have a t.vs everywhere a great milieu in general. I love the poppers too! I could rave on about this place for days but I will end here. Any one who hasn't been, go! They have some of the best in house brews in a town known for great beer!

Great atmosphere! Keep in mind its Asheville so don't expect speedy service. Beers are decent. Pizza is awesome as well as most of the options on the menu. All around its worth trying. The location on Merrimon Ave has $3 movies where you can order food/beer in the theater(=awsome). They also have a kids theater that plays cartoons and has arcade games and picnic tables/booths for when mom and dad needs a beer and kid needs to run around. Has outdoor seating as well to enjoy great Asheville weather. Best pizza in Asheville by far.

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.

This is not just a brewpub, but another one of those quirky places here in Asheville. There's a lot of dedication to movies evident in the decor. There's also a ticket booth where tickets can be purchased for $3 for the daily movie, of which there are two that each show twice (a kids' movie at 1 and 4 pm and another at 7 and 10 pm). The beer is good, as is the food. The pizza is obviously the specialty in terms of food, but the real focus is their beers. When I went last night, there were 8 taps of their own with about 5 guest taps. They also sell a few bottles, but as far as I could tell only 750s of their own stuff, and only a few were available. They do, of course, also fill growlers, and they also sell growlers already filled. Our bartender was very attentive. There are three TVs above the bar, 2 turned to sporting events and one set to a different show, none of which had the volume turned up. I really enjoyed this place; they obviously cared about the beer they brew, the bartender gave very good service, it wasn't too loud, and the food is good. A great place to go in Asheville for a cheap movie (as long as it's one you'd liek to see), good pizza and good beer.
