We have stopped in here a few times while in BM. We have always had a good experience. Vibe is the laid back friendly atmosphere that is BM. Staff knows their beers inside and out and are very courteous and helpful in making selections. Approximately 15 taps of their and other local brews

Vibe was friendly and laid-back with both indoor and outdoor seating. The front door leads to steps, and you go down the steps to get to the actual bar -- a bit indirect, but we figured it out pretty quickly. There's a stage and live music was scheduled for later on the night we visited, and a food truck was there (but not yet open when we visited). Service at the bar was prompt, friendly, and helpful without being at all pushy. I was talking about a particular beer that I decided not to try in my selection of four, and when the bartender misunderstood me and poured one anyway, he gave it to me on the house - so obviously no complaints there. Payment was cash-only, though.

The selection was great as far as Pisgah's own beers was concerned, and some well-known selections from other breweries were also available (e.g. Sierra Nevada), as were soft drinks and plain water (self-serve). Like many brewery spaces, this one was still somewhat industrial in style, but that can be forgiven. Overall, worth a stop if you are in the area (a few miles east of Asheville).

Another brewery outside the normal downtown Asheville places, and not too far outside of town. Located in a large building in an industrial area. Walking inside there is a real casual vibe here. The bar isn't too big, but the space is very open with a stage too. There is also an outdoor stage for larger acts. There were 14 house beers on including a few guest taps. The tripel was very good, and so was the Choclatizer. Service was very friendly and prompt. This was a very enjoyable place to hang and have a few beers.

We discovered Pisgah brewing hidden away in an industrial area outside the main downtown. The brewery itself is located (like most) in an old warehouse. They have a medium sized bar serving a good number of beers (10+) including cider and rootbeer. An outside patio area is just outside the large (open) garage doors of the brewery itself. The place was crowded when we arrived, since there was a Leaf Festival of some type starting up in the town proper a few hours later and folks wanted to get a head start on the festivities. Our bartender was very busy, but gave us enough of her time to make us feel welcome.

We sampled almost all the beers, and I have to say that I was impressed. Having had the previous good beers in Asheville, I did have high hopes and they were not dashed after this visit! Not every beer was amazing, but all were respectable. I think the GreyBeard IPA was my least favorite, but I was not overwhelmed by any IPA on this trip, and this one was still better than many others. My favorite was Valdez, a stout made with Dynamite Coffee (roasted just a couple doors down from the brewery) and was full of fresh roasted coffee flavors. We lucked out and bought one of their last 6 packs to take home and I've been slowly drinking through it since getting back. Yum! Juan Valdez would be proud! I also enjoyed the Red Devil, a cherry and raspberry Belgian ale quite a bit. I guess these guys are celebrating their 10 year anniversary so they have been doing this a long time now.

A nice little brewery East of Asheville. You could get a bus from Asheville if needed.
There brews were good. They are known for organic beers.
The only take cash, which was fine. They had outside seating, and with a 75 degree day in early February, it was nice.
It looked like they had bands occasionaly play as well.

I'd definitely recommend visiting.

Go there for Pisgah beers. They usually have some guest taps but why would you do that! They have an awesome outdoor stage in the summer, you listen go great music, drink fantastic beer and they also usually have some good foodtrucks sitting out there from very good restaurants around the Asheville area. I like Pisgah, great vibe here and they usually have a nice summer schedule to listen to music under the trees!

During my recent trip to Asheville, I hooked up with the Asheville Brews Cruise. Pisgah was the first stop. Located outside of Asheville in Black Mountain on a rural drive, Pisgah is the quintessential small brewer: there is the tasting room, which brings to mind a garage with a bar. However, there is a stage here since Pisgah offers live music during the Summer. In the back, around the corner, through the rear door, are the tanks.

A great little place with a really nice pale ale. (Available at Pack's Tavern downtown.)

Based on several visits, including some during events. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to a brewpub with a (newly improved) stage, Pisgah has a seasonally open outdoor stage for larger acts. Whoever books their musical acts does a great job.
Legendary beer with limited distribution: Always seems to be something on tap here that is available no where else.
