(Visited 01/2012): Acoustic Coffeehouse is on the south side of downtown Johnson City on Walnut, not too far off I-26. There is a lot along the side of the building shared by a laundromat.
The interior is small with an eclectic array of tables and knickknacks, cinder block walls and a small bar in the rear with a few seats. I noted "hippies" too but not sure if that is pertinent.
Acoustic has around 20 taps including some local beers from Depot Street (which was closed the day I was there) and Catawba Valley, and microbreweries like New Belgium and Highland. A few decent selections in bottles too.
Service on a slow weekday afternoon was fairly good. The bartender was friendly and chatted a little about the local beer scene.
I did not try any food on this visit.
Overall this is a decent laid back spot to grab a beer in JC.

Iíve played the AC a few times and itís always a mixed bag. Definitely a hippie hangout, but typically with a few good things on draft. This was the first place I had Fat Tire (before it had reached Virginia). Prices are good and theyíve got keep pitchers of the macros. Food is pretty good (lots of vegetarian/vegan) but the staff can be a bit...uh....spacey.

its full of dirty hippies that i want to beat to death with a shovel. but that aside, its good to have a place like this around in Johnson City. a decent place to grab a beer if you want to avoid the usual sports bar or chain restaurant. cause trust me, JC doesnt have anything else to offer otherwise really. selection is decent, highlighting breweries in the NE Tenn/SW Virginia market like Depot Street and Highland Brewery. prices are pretty reasonable for draft, nothing over $3.75. have had a few different drafts here, none of them poured badly and no skunkiness. so kudos for that. if you can put up with the clientele in plaid shirts and the longhairs, you could do worse.

Iíve visited this place a few times since my first patronage. It seems that I went on a good day the first time. This happened on my most recent visit: Ordered a Shipyard IPA in a bottle since the keg was evidently empty. The bartender told me it wasnít empty and went to pour a glass of foam and air. Apologizing, she offered to get me something else. I requested the Shipyard IPA in the bottle. I received a Shipyard Export in a glass. The selection was slimmer than my last few visits. Still, getting a real beer in Johnson City is a chore and Iíd still stop here just out of necessity. They generally carry Duck Rabbit, Depot Street, and some Highland stuff so there are always fall backs.
