I’m reviewing the haywood location
Vibe - live music, super friendly bare tenders, open to being outside... incredible
Quality - I’ve had one beer so far and it’s incredible
Service - open to help, there to serve and friendly!
Selection - not many beers but very unique. They do have mixed drinks and wine so open to the masses

this is a cool place to check out, but in limited drinking i thought their beer was a little below the quality of many of the other brewers in town. we certainly didnt try them all, and in fact only had time for two, so maybe we just didnt order well, but the vibe made the mediocre beer tolerable, at least for a little while. you enter through a little alley and then down some stairs, an older looking basement vibe with some exposed stone, dim lighting, a cool wooden bar right where you walk in with all the little baby fermenters lined up in the back, its cool and relaxed, a nice respite from the humid warmth outside, and cool low energy on a weeknight. the server seemed uninterested in either us or the beer, but filled up our glasses, got the tab right, and generally didnt hurt the experience. i had a maca stout which was hardly drinkable, and a slightly better hazy ipa, some interesting beers on paper, but execution left a bit to be desired. some cool folks hanging out here though, and we immediately assimilated into some good conversation. its a cool place to relax and unwind and take it all in, but if its high end beer you seek, this should be well down the list, at least in our experience...

Funky vibe, underneath Farm Burger in Asheville. Eight different taps. Sampled the El Dorado IPA and had a glass of Citra Bomb DIPA which was excellent. Plenty of other things on tap that looked intriguing, and service was excellent. Will definitely be back before I leave town.

stopped in for some drinks. down the bleak, unmarked speakeasy style entrance back an alley, and down the stairs into the dark basement. my wife said, "like hanging out at a classier frat house basement party". they had a bar, some tables, and some dart boards and shuffleboard game.

they had there own beer, some guest taps, and some hard cider for the non-beer drinkers. beers were average to good.

This was a cool place; in a basement, almost like a speakeasy, and terrific service. That being said, there were only two options on their draft menu that were not IPAs, one of which was an ESB. So if malt-driven brews are your preference, this may not be the place for you.

This basement taproom has an industrial hipster kind of vibe. At the bottom of the stairwell the room opens to a small bar area that seats about 12 with a few tables about the room and a small area for live music. 7 beers on tap, the one I had was solid. Interest place with a crowd much younger than I.

Hidden down an alley right next to Farm Burger restaurant, the entrance is through a large metal framed portal (manned by a bouncer), down some stairs past a door with sliding peep-hole (speakeasy?) and into a dark and minimalist basement space. The space itself is fairly relaxed looking with a small bar near the entrance. When we arrived they had the World's Most Terrible DJ (TM) playing awful, bone jarring house music from hell. Sj gave me "the look" saying silently, "Get your beers, drink them, and get me out of this place." Which I promptly did. The bartender was cheerful and quick, getting me the sampler without fuss. I'll be honest here, the beers were not very good. Not infected or unintentionally-sour-bad, but just not very good and not well balanced. The exception was the Citra Bomb that I gave a 3.5 star rating since I'm a whore for Citra hops. Looking at the homebrew sized brew system in the corner of the basement, I can see why they probably have some variability in batches, but these guys need to step it up if they want to compete in Asheville! I didn't finish my beers and we escaped the hellish racket to the free air above ground. Your results may vary.

Following a beery day with the Asheville Brews Cruise, I sought a decent dinner at the popular Farm Burger, where I savored a serious burger. That out of the way, I ventured out the door and around the corner into an alleyway that led me to Asheville's newest brewery, One World. It is reached down a flight of stairs; you enter into a basement with a central bar amid a smattering of crickety tables. The light is minimal, the crowd feels good and the soothing and sultry tones of blues compliments the laid back scene.
As this is a small brewery, the draft selection is limited to about six house beers: my choices: a nice Red IPA, a Belgian stout and an IPA - all served in 20-ounce pours. There is no food. (But this is why you visit Farm Burger.)

One World makes for an intimate and frill-free venue, where one can do what most folks in Asheville do: chill out with some fresh local craft beer.

Hit this spot for the first time last night. Neat space, I liked the bar and overall vibe. The beers I had were just okay, but I'm pulling for them. There's a lot about the place to like. I'll definitely revisit.

This place was ok. My friend said this looked like a craft beer dungeon. Very minimalist. They had one bartender on a Friday night. She was working her ass off to serve everyone so didn't get a chance to chat at all. Beers were average. Didn't have anything that jumped out at me. Good mix of folks in the bar.

Second trip to Asheville and saw the sandwich sign for this place at the entry to a dark alley. Dropped my wife off at the condo and walked back for a beer. The door has a porthole looking window and upon opening the door and looking down the metal stairs is sitting the doorman/bouncer(?). Walking past him I realize I am going into the basement. The taproom is 100% basement with beers fermenting in white plastic barrels. The beer menu was inviting so I got a Saison. It strongly reminded me of a 1967 Schlitz without any hops. About 20 people were in there which took up most of the seats. The crowd was eclectic being composed of older tourists like my self, grad student types and retail employee types.

If you travel to Asheville, don't waste your time here. Bad atmosphere, not a comfortable entry, beer (at least mine) of questionable quality and a generally dodgy place.

Shady location in the bottom of a basement. Only 4 beers on tap and their brew setup looked like a homebrew setup. Hard to find and not worth the effort. Prices seemed to OK but they were pretty much out of everything.

Quite an experience even finding this spooky little gem of a taproom. Enter via an unmarked alley with only a smallish chalkboard to alert you. Then enter through a heavy black steel door and down a couple of flights of stairs and through yet one more shiny black steel door. Kind of reminded me of Milwaukee's Safe House. The beerspace was wonderful! A clean, uncluttered bar and a very minimalist tap wall. No glaring tap markers which made choosing a beer an adventure. I would recommend a sampler/flight and choose that way. I tried 8 sudsies and they were all very clean. The public area of the bar was inviting yet mysterious. Recommended.

Probably the coolest entrance to a brewery to date. On my first visit, I wasn’t blown away. My second was much better. Everything from the service to the beer quality was much improved. They’ve expanded to another location that I’d love to check out.
