They had a reggae band playing the night we were there - loved the facility and the beers aren't bad. Food trucks out front.

This is a big building with food trucks parked outside and a bunch of folks enjoying beers in the sunshine. Inside there is a large bar on the one side next to the gift shop area. A big stage is in the back and picnic tables and hitops are through the place. All the standard beers were on draft with a few small batch brews. The beers we had were fresh and tasty. The IPA is now made in a west coast style, and was really good. This should be on everyone's tour of the area.

A good brewery to visit when in Asheville. I felt the beers were all solid, the location was good, and the layout/feel was pretty good. Service was not bad. THe place was not that busy, but there was only one bartender so always quite a long line. Worth a visit.

Original large tasting room, and a new roof top deck, the meadow, and upper level tasting/event rooms. (no more closing because of a private event).

Huge change in beer offerings, all for the good. New Brewer, and apparently a goal to expand the product line have produced some great beers.

Service can be iffy at the bar... some time great, sometimes you feel you are invisible as the younger and prettier are served.

The place is huge and they hold indoor concerts there on occasion. Beer selection is fairly varied, but limited to those brewed in house. When crowded, such as during concerts, service is adequate, at best. Under normal conditions, the service is quite good. Beer quality is rather good, but nothing is world class, yet.

Staff are some of the nicest people you could ever meet, and the service is unmatched, as is the on-tap selection. While they have a number of year-round brews and seasonal on draft, I would recommend any or all of the small-batch brews which can only be had on-tap at the brewery. They are brewed by the employees, who are allowed to brew at least one small-batch beer of their own each year. I would definitely recommend the tour, make sure Gary is your guide if you do so, he is hands-down one of the best tour guides I've ever had at any sort of venue and one of the nicest dudes I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
