I really like that this place has put a lot of effort into focusing on beer. They haven't slacked in other areas: plenty of big TVs, ample room on a week night, pool table, etc., but they have a good selection of good beer. I would recommend, and will go back.

This place was right next to our hotel, so it was the last stop before crashing. It's pretty wide open and they have a wide selection, albeit mundane. Lots of macro and lots of low gravity craft. There's definitely something for most, but you won't find many sought after items here. They have pool tables, dart boards and lots of TV's, which makes it a lot like a sports bar. And I wasn't 100% sure, but I think it was connected to a mall? It was after hours so that door was closed off. Either way, it's a nice casual stop for a pint, better suited if you're staying in the vicinity, not necessarily as a destination.

Vibe: This is more of a sports bar than a beer destination, but being Asheville it has a pretty good beer selection and as an added bonus the place opens at 11:00 am while many other bars in the city don't open until well later in the afternoon. I came in here around lunchtime on a Saturday and also returned later that evening. The evening crowd mainly seemed to be there to watch sports on the multiple TVs or play in the game room, some of which were drinking macro lagers.

Quality: Beers were served in the proper temperature, although one beer seemed to be coming off the keg flat. When I sat at the bar I received a snifter glass for a whiskey barrel aged beer.

Service: When I sat at the bar, the bartenders were very friendly and promptly came over to see if I wanted another beer. Service at the tables was a little slower.

Selection: The Bier Garden has 30 beers on-tap, approximately eight of which were from local Asheville breweries; a few others were also from North Carolina breweries elsewhere in the state. They also had an extensive selection of about 150+ bottled beers.

Food: I tried a couple of the appetizers, including the Bier Battered Vegetables, Smoked Gouda & Bacon Mac & Cheese, and Nachos. It wasn't overly fancy, but it was nice to have something to munch on while sampling beers.

Value: This place seemed a little bit pricier compared to some of the other bars in Asheville, but it wasn't expensive. It's not a bad selection if you are looking for a place that's open early or want to have a few beers while watching a game on TV.
