Easiest to find brewery in Asheville.

Went in on a Thursday afternoon for lunch. Looks like they had some sort of buffet going on but we just ordered a pizza to be able to take some leftovers for the road. The pizza was very good.

The place was nearly empty at late lunch, but there was a group huddled at the bar to watch the ACC tournament which was going on at the time. Lots of records on the wall and enough TVs to see but I don't think any of them had the volume on. If they did, it wasn't obnoxiously loud.

Service was more than adequate but not outstanding. Our waitress checked on us enough and was able to give the style and a brief description for every beer.

The beer was good but not great. There was a good variety of taps and I enjoyed the beer I had (their DIPA).

Overall, this place is very solid but not great in every respect. A good stop to make for a meal in Asheville since most of the better stops we made didn't serve food. It also wasn't the cheapest stop in Asheville, although saying that just means it was slightly below average priced compared to every other brewery I've been to in other cities.

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.

Walking in there is a smallish bar that is L shaped and can seat 10. Some booths and table fill the rest of the place including a slightly divided room in the back. Plenty of natural light from the windows here. A blackboard lists 15 beers on draft. Only had one Shiva IPA here and it was decent. Ordered some appetizers which were mediocre. Service was friendly but a bit slow, but there was a good crowd here.

My visit was on a Tuesday afternoon for a business trip. We were looking for somewhere to bide time and this brewpub seemed like a good choice. They have a nice outdoor area that is almost the size of the restaurant...looks like it would make a decent music venue, but currently hosted one family, several hipsters with dogs, and a couple of bums. We decided to eat inside because of the dogs and bums.

The brewery was very representative of Asheville with tattooed employees and a very social crowd. Maybe we chose the wrong menu items, but the beer and food were both just OK. Still not a bad place to relax, but with so many breweries in Asheville, I would pass over ABC next time.
