Huge place in Downtown Asheville, large cavernous room with two full bars and lots of seats.
Seven selections on tap, I had the Amber, the IPA and the Pale. All were basic, but very good. There was a nitro berry stout that didn't look appetizing at all, I'd avoid that.
We split some nachos, huge portion and very good. There is a backstage area for comedy shows and the like that is very popular. This place gets packed early and often.
Service was good and quick, very friendly.
Overall, a little touristy but worth a stop, come see a show too.

Right in downtown Asheville, LaB should be a bullet point on anyone's visit itinerary to the city. Wide open seating in the front of the establishment that looks out onto Lexington Ave through monster windows is what you walk into, separated by half walls from the rest of the dining space. Large oval-ish shaped bar on the right side of the room, with tons of table seating to the right. Very eclectic decorations, with plenty of their own swag hanging up, as well as some rustic decorations, and some neveau stylings. The staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. There were 7 beers on-tap while we were there, and it seems like that is +/- 2 or so on any given day. Beers are available to go in growlers, and we were informed that LaB is looking into acquiring the space next door in order to expand, with eyes on distribution eventually. The food was terrific; gastropub fare, with some very unique offerings highlighting the menu. Definitely worth a visit!

Went here yesterday in the middle of a roadtrip. Strolled in about 4:40PM (they only serve part of the menu after 5) and I ordered their 1st gear ale and a Mongolian Taco cause it sounded fire as fuck. Dude at the bar says man we can't do that til 5 but if you wanna hang tight...it's almost 5. I did, and I guess he put the order in for me cause it got to me about 5. And it was delicious food omg that Mongo Taco man. Atmosphere was great. Downtown Asheville brewery with wide open doors and a nifty looking dining area/bar. The selection was where I was a bit disappointed, seems if you like stouts or porters or brown ales you are out of luck.
