Stopped in today for the first time for a tour, and it is a must see if you're in the area. The tour guide knew his stuff and was helpful to everyone. It also helped that you got samples along the way. It's a pretty large brewery now, just pushing their way into the craft level. I haven't been there during the hours when the tasting room is open, but I'm definitely going back. Seems like a good atmosphere, and decent venue for a band, not to mention you get out by 8:00 so you can head out and check some other bars and beers out after.

A good brewery to visit when in Asheville. I felt the beers were all solid, the location was good, and the layout/feel was pretty good. Service was not bad. THe place was not that busy, but there was only one bartender so always quite a long line. Worth a visit.

The place is huge and they hold indoor concerts there on occasion. Beer selection is fairly varied, but limited to those brewed in house. When crowded, such as during concerts, service is adequate, at best. Under normal conditions, the service is quite good. Beer quality is rather good, but nothing is world class, yet.

Staff are some of the nicest people you could ever meet, and the service is unmatched, as is the on-tap selection. While they have a number of year-round brews and seasonal on draft, I would recommend any or all of the small-batch brews which can only be had on-tap at the brewery. They are brewed by the employees, who are allowed to brew at least one small-batch beer of their own each year. I would definitely recommend the tour, make sure Gary is your guide if you do so, he is hands-down one of the best tour guides I've ever had at any sort of venue and one of the nicest dudes I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
