Love this place, we usually park at Burial and walk for lunch here. Food is great wonderful beer selection, from time to time there are popping vintage bottles. Sundays they usually have a small band for brunch it is nice to sit outside and enjoy a sour while listening to music. Staff is always super friendly, i always stop here when i visit Asheville.

It doesn’t matter how good the sours are here, the service is just the worst. The rudest bartender I’ve ever had in the 30 years of drinking craft beer in tap rooms. After drinking my first sour, which was excellent, I asked him if I could taste Red Angel before deciding to have a full pour. I am a 52 year old guy with an easy going personality when I drink.

He said NO. Not, I’m sorry we can’t offer tastes of that beer because it’s a special barrel aged sour. Just a flat NO. I said, OK, I’m done (after one beer). He said, that’s all you want is 1 beer? I said, yes as he looked at me with an astonished look. I paid my bill (even gave him a decent tip because I didn’t wait for change) and walked out of the tap room. Asshole! They need to learn how to treat customers and realize that that’s how you lose business. If I was the owner (and I own a service business) I would have fired that shit for brains on the spot!

While my experience at the taproom/dining location was god awful, the Funkatorium was great. Plenty of rowdy people and came on the perfect day, near Halloween and everyone was dressed up which made it even more fun.

The quality is just superb, but this was pre-ABInBev so I'm not sure how it is now.

The service staff HERE (not at the taproom, that was fucking awful service) was amazing.

The selection is jaw dropping.

This place is a must visit when visiting Asheville! They have a large variety of sours on tap and bottles for onsite consumption. They didn’t have much to choose from for food. Said they were going through a transition period on the menu. They have 15+ bottles to take home. The best part is seeing this rows and rows of barrels!!

This is the place that changed my mind about sours.
Funkatorium couldn't be better titled. A dark, dank, funky long room/bar connected to the warehouse
where they hold all the barrels, aging their fantastic beers. Plus in a hip part of the town.

Sours directly fresh from the barrels. You could really taste the fruits way more than the bottled versions IMO.
Sour but with a variety of different flavors at different moments while hitting the palate. All kinds of stuff on tap, some
normal standard releases, and lots of funkatorium only. If you love sours, you must visit Asheville
