We came very close to missing this great place on our trip to Asheville. With so many places to try it can be overwhelming. Do yourself a favor, and go here. If turned out to be our favorite tasting room for atmosphere, and vibe. The bartender was great and even though it was quite busy, made time for conversation. Also met the owner who was very friendly and welcoming.

They have a big garage door that was open during our visit, as well as an outdoor patio area. We were lucky enough to have seats open up at the bar right after we arrived.

We enjoyed the IPA, Pale Ale, and Rainmaker IIPA. All were excellent.

Call the tasting room to see if they are open early. We would have liked to know that before our trip, as the 4pm opening time is what held us back to start with. So glad we fit it in on our last day. We liked it so much we did not want to leave.

Dirty Jacks, the original tasting room has it charm, unless they had a soccer game on the TV where the yelling at the TV made it less than enjoyable experience.

Huge expansion now open and a much more tourist attracting vibe, so if you want to feel like you are in a big city brewery, check out the Green Mansion. If you want to enjoy the Asheville Beer Vibe, go to the original tasting room, Dirty Jacks.

It's hard to move inside this place. The beer is good, not great. Glad I went, but won't be back.

I first stopped in the original building first. Smallish bar area that could seat about 6 folks. Some brewing tanks were visible. There was an outdoor seating area with a wide variety of different furniture. There were about 10 beers on draft, and the ones I had were good but not overly impressive. Then I walked to the newer building which has a big open ground floor area and plenty of tables upstairs. Definite contrast of original old place and the newer building vibe. Again another must stop based on the history of Asheville beer scene.
