My wife and I stopped here on a Friday afternoon during a brief visit to town. It was a lively place with a good crowd and positive atmosphere. We were impressed with the range of ages of the patrons - from people in their 20’s to folks in their 60’s or 70’s. During our stay we struck up relaxed conversations with various friendly locals. We found the servers to be outgoing and knowledgeable. We didn’t do any flights, but the beers we selected seemed solid and tasty. Near-by Asheville gets a lot of attention, but the next time we are in the area, we will definitely stop back here again.

Fun place, kid and (def) dog friendly. Live music and free food the Sunday afternoon I was there. Place was crowded, but not too crowded and with a nice size space so not unpleasant. Beers seemed pretty solid for the most part. I would definitely come back here with no hesitation.

First visit and they are slammed. Just off Main street, and clearly a welcome addition to the Hendersonville scene.
A dozen or more brews, plus bottled speciality beers.
Service is good considering there is barely room to walk around due to live music and a release party.
As someone said in a movie once " I'll be back"
