This place was awesome!

The only negative thing I can say was the fact that the bartender in the main room kinda ignored me for the most part. However, the atmosphere here was excellent. It really summed up what Asheville is all about a good time and some good beer. The bar has a single screen movie theater in the back and the night I was there they were showing Pink FLoyd's The Wall which I must admit has influenced my review of the atmosphere. Any bar that A. has a movie theater and B. Plays Pink Floyd's The Wall automatically receives a 5. The service at the theater bar was much better than the main room. The beer there was good but not great. Their Roland's ESB in the best of the bunch. Their food was pretty decent overall. Their pizza was very good but other items seem to be lacking somewhat. The price is very reasonable and it is definitely worth the visit if you are in the area. However, I have noticed that they have started showing more current movies rather than cult classics which is what I like most about the place.

So if the point is to grab a pizza, some beers, and see a movie, very well done. The pizzas were pretty darn flavorful. The atmosphere was a disaster. Chaotic at the front - lots of open tables but a long line to get in. We were seating in the game area, which had a Lord of the Flies feel. All of that being said, a decent selection of brews to try - though they don't do samplers because its too busy. Huh? Beers were good ( not great). I'd go back, but hopefully at a time when the place was less packed.

Busy due to movie theater, service can be excellent or lacking. Great beer, large selection of taps, varied menu and good food.
We frequent on Tuesday's for their special, $2 for their canned beer and $2.50 for a HUGE slice of pizza, and they make very good pizza

Amazing venues...both the downtown and the movie house on merrimon. Great place for dinner and a movie. A real Asheville experience. Beer is good, not great, but the food is amazing and the atmosphere is even better.

Went here on a Friday night with bad weather. The inside was completely full. Still sat our group fairly quickly. Food and drinks came out quick. Food was great. Pizza is fairly priced and incredible. IPA's were pretty standard. Perfect Day IPA was good. They had a beer called Carolina Mountain Monster (maybe) that was really good as well. Good selection and worth the trip for sure.

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.
