Kind of an interesting atmosphere, as it is located inside like an old downtown mall or something? Nice floors, and kind of a historic look.
They have a long wood bar, and maybe 30 taps or something. They have mostly local beers on tap, well representation from NC and the south Atlantic.
We sat at the bar, and the bartender was "courteous". She didn't really talk to us too much about beer, or anything for that matter. She wasn't exactly busy, but busy enough to not pay much attention to us.
We had some food, which was actually pretty disappointing. The Cuban was pretty bad, and the salad was past it's prime to be honest. Just another average stop in Asheville.

Huge place that had one bar open and another one that was closed. Plenty of TVs, and plenty of tables filled with patrons. There are about 20 beers on draft here with numerous bottles. Lots of local beers but some macros too. The beers we had were fresh, and didn't eat any food. So many places to hit up in town I only stopped here once.

Food was phenomenal, and the selection of beer was very good by all means. Comfortable atmosphere, but the service was just a tad slower than I would have preferred.

I really like that this place has put a lot of effort into focusing on beer. They haven't slacked in other areas: plenty of big TVs, ample room on a week night, pool table, etc., but they have a good selection of good beer. I would recommend, and will go back.
