This was an interesting little stop on our self-made tour of Asheville. The place is so tiny you can barely call it a bar, but they use the space well, managing to squeeze in some tables, and even a small stage for bands, apparently. Brewing processes in full view.

For its size, they had a decent amount of beer available on tap, 7 selections of good variety. Nothing really blew me away, but everything was pretty solid, the barleywine and rye ale being my favorites of the bunch.

Service was fine, and the girl working the bar seemed knowledgeable about the brewery and the beer. No food. Cheap prices.

There's really nothing here you haven't had or seen before, but it's still a nice spot, and worth checking out if in the area.

Considering we had a private tour of this brewery, we were treated great. This is a 4 and 1/2 year old brewery, and the head brewer Jonas, we were told used to run Jack of the Wood. When you walk in this nice sized warehouse, you are greeted by a welcoming light wood bar that looks out into the tank room. About 8 stools to prop on. Also a small couch, some tables, and a couple highboys near the wall. Nice cozy atmosphere, and cool paintings. This is a brewery? Seemed like a good place to just hang.
Taps are flowing from a fridge that's been transformed. Eloise was our tour master, with the help of brewerer Jeremy. She was well spoken, easy to hear, and understand. Lots of info not only on their beers, which she is very proud of, but beer history in general. She kept our tasters full the whole time we were there. They have 7 beers on tap year round, and we had a chance to try all. We were told Jonas has a passion for Northern European lagers, and Belgium brews. They have average pricing for shirts, glasses, and beer to go. No food here, as they are only brewing beer here.I believe it's $6 for the tour, and you get a pint glass to go. Well worth the money.
