One of the only places open in Asheville on Thanksgiving night. We stopped by and had a few beers. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. They had 20 or so taps with several local breweries. Most were in the 4-5$ range which is quite cheap for a pint.

After stopping into Hops and Vines next door, I ducked in here for a quick beer. Very long bar with about 15 stools. booths along the side wall as well, about 10 or so. More tables in the back. The restaurant is very long and narrow.

They only had about 7 beers on draft. Pisgah Stout, Beamish, Houdini, French Broad Wee Heavy, and Bud Light. Probably 30 bottled beers.

Service was decent. The place was pretty slow at 4pm on a Tuesday. Some locals were about all that were in there. My pint of Pisgah Stout was a bit stout at $4, but it was worth it. Kind of out of the way but if in the area, duck in for a beer.

My wife and I dropped by here on our way back from the waterfalls. Pretty non-descript building in a very ecletic neighborhood, which is a good thing. There were only a few other people there mid-afternoon on a Saturday. Place had a good vibe. It kind of reminded my of Twain's in Atlanta before they redecorated. I imagine this place would be pretty cool at night. Looks like they have live music in addition to a pool room. Had 16 or so taps (don't remember exactly). The nest part is that they had Foothills Hoppyum IPA on tap. This instantly became a favorite for my wive. next time we're in Asheville we'll have to come back at night. It lloks very child friendly.

I had never actually made it over to this side of town before, so when I was finally able to you know I had just had to stop in here. It was real easy to find right on the street, and the parking situation was much much better then anything downtown. I had no issue grabbing a spot. Walked in and was actually very surprised with how big it was, it looked small from the outside, but was very long with plenty of tables. Very long bar on the left with lots of locals, foothills, highland, and Pisgah! Which is always nice. Some other cool ones on tap from Ska were nice to see as well. Place was not that busy late afternoon on a Saturday, but I could see how it would be later on. Amble room for bands with the stage setup. Have to admit I did not try any food when I was there so I cannot really comment on that aspect, but I am sure it was half way decent. Overall this really seemed like a cool little place to chill that’s is a bit away from the hectics of downtown. I would defiantly want to visit it again for sure, and defiantly on a night when there is some tunes. Looked like it could be a lot of fun!

The Westville pub is fairly easy to find off Haywood in Asheville.

I was glad to see this already in the database. They have 16 total taps with only one PBR tap and the rest pretty much micro and local micro. The place is basically two rooms or businesses tied together. One side is bar and is more dimly lit and the other is a game room, bathroom and kitchen areas.

We opted for the all you can eat lasagne and darned if it wasn't delish on each and every serving. The service was spot on until we wanted the check and then it seemed MIA.

The selection of 16 was good with many new selections and very nice ones at that. The focus seemed to be Pisgah and French Broad beers, but all in all, a nice tap list including Foothills which just began to distribute to the mountains.

Check it out if in the area.

This is a great local pub in the heart of funky west Asheville. Clean (no smoking!), casual, and open, in addition to a nice bar, there are tables, sofas, a pool room, and a small stage for live music. There were about 15 taps when I was there and most of them were quality, with good local represention - very appropriate since the greater Asheville area is home to some of the best beers in the southeast.

The staff was exceptionally down-to-earth, friendly and attentive. Clearly the place caters to its local clientele, but I felt not the slightest bit uncomfortable as a visitor. The food (shrimp, chicken, sausage jambalaya over rice) was very good and an excellent value.

I really can't recommend this place highly enough if you are looking for a nice mellow place to hang for a few beers or a low-key meal. I should add that I visited on a Sunday (early) evening - it was not crowded, especially compared to the places I hit in downtown Asheville proper afterward.

Located "in the heart of downtown West Asheville", the Westville Pub is an interesting place. It's smoke-free, yeah!, with an outdoor patio area which is smoker territory. The best selling beer seems to be long-neck PBR at $1.75 a bottle - at least it was on the Sunday evening of our first visit. There is a small selection of draught beers, with about 11 or 12 taps, with good representation of local/regional beers and beer styles. They also have large selection of bottled beers, including the infamous PBR!
They offer an eclectic variety of foods from bratwurst & kraut, to
homemade salsas, to all-you-can-eat lasagna on Wednesday nights.
On our Sunday visit, we arrived at 8:00 for the advertised "acoustic
jam at 8:30". We left after 9:30, with the musicians just wandering in from smoking and drinking out back... oh well. We returned on Tuesday for the open blues jam scheduled for 9:30. The music started a bit after 10pm, so we didn't go away disappointed this time.
This is a fun and unusual watering hole that's worth a ride to out to West Asheville.
