Stopped in here for the first time during a recent trip to asheville. Obvious college atmosphere upon entry, as there were groups of kids playing bag-o in the outdoor section.

Wasn't immediately sure whether it was seat yourself or wait to be seated, but as we didn't see any open seats except at the bar it didn't really matter. Still, we stood near the entrance for close to 5 min without any of the staff saying a word to us. Finally one of the waitresses came over and sat us at a table that had just cleared.

They had, I believe, 5 of their beers on tap at the time, and a couple on their menu that i asked for they no longer had. All the beer was servicable but nothing all that distinct. The fact that now, a few months later, i can't even remember which was my favorite, should give some indication as to the how memorable anything was.

Pizza was ok, nothing great, or even as good as the pub dog in baltimore that i had just visited a few weeks prior. To top that off, the waitress charged us for a large pizza when we had ordered a medium. When i brought this to her attention, she told us that "the mediums here are larges" or something to that effect. She still wouldn't change the bill though, and I didn't see the point in arguing.

Leaving the service out of it though, it's a pretty average brewpub all in all. If i was still in college i'm sure i would have been there frequently. As it is now, i doubt i will be returning.

Neat space - loads of other spots to hit in the area just blocks away - with decent beer. Fun place to hang out. Give 'em a shot when you're in the area. Cheers!

Been here a few times now, finally writing a review. Large tap selection of in-house brews, all of which are above average. Service is solid (we were there on a Friday evening), and the food was quality (I had a bison burger). Prices are reasonable for the South Slope.

I really enjoyed the beer and the food was fantastic, but the service was absolutely horrible. I'm almost positive our server was stoned out of his mind, which would've been cool IF he would have remembered to check on us occasionally. I would return for the food and beer but definitely hope I get a different server next time.

I much preferred this location to the pizza place / brewery / theater ABC. The restaurant is pretty generic, but the outside area has more character to it. Much like the other location, there is a good amount to choose from beer-wise, and a good range of styles, and the tap list is different. My favorite here was the apricot gose, which came as quite a surprise. The food is about the same: sandwiches, pizza, etc. Service was fine.

Bring a designated driver and do a bar hop. All within easy walking distance: Funkatorium, Tasty, Asheville Brewing, Burial, Green Man, Twin Leaf. It's hard to beat this neighborhood as far as beer venues goes. I'd say this is the true heart of Asheville right here.
