Stopped by during the in between lunch and dinner hour on a Wednesday a few weeks ago to check out the selection, etc.
They have a rather large tap list, but again, nothing special. They carry some of the pseudo-craft options like Blue Moon, Shock Top, etc. But they also carry a good amount of local NC brews, and South Atlantic goodies.
The atmosphere was what you would expect, bright, energetic. Kind of a college vibe...
It's an alright stop, but not worth going out of your way for. Another Asheville stop that is rather meh, as far as a craft beer destination is concerned.

Not being from down South, this was my first Mellow Mushroom experience. According to the reviews here, apparently this is considered one of the better MM locations? After my experience, that isn't a glowing endorsement of the chain...
We opted to eat lunch here because we have small kids, and pizza is always a hit with small kids. So a pizza place that got good beer reviews online seemed like a good compromise.
And this place was kid-friendly.
And they had craft beer. Which I like.
And the pizza wasn't "bad".
There just wasn't a whole lot "good" about it either. The pizza was mediocre, bordering on "sub-par". They had 30-some beers on draft, but in downtown Asheville, with so many interesting breweries nearby, I found the list to be largely unimaginitive. We practically opened the place at 11:00 AM, and despite being one of only 3-6 tables there throughout our entire meal, we received very slow service.
To top it all off, they brought out a pizza larger than what we ordered... my wife decided the leftovers would be useful, so we didn't complain. So that's my fault. But getting the order wrong initially is still on them.
Maybe it was just one bad experience? But all in all, I wouldn't really recommend it.
