Located next to a Bruggers Bagels who are very generous with their wi-fi. The parking lot needs to seriously be repaved. The ambiance was eclectic playing up a movie theater. In fact they are a second-run movie house in addition to a restaurant. The beers ranged from meh to decent. Nothing really blew my socks away. The guy behind the bar seemed nice but was incredibly forgetful. The pizza was solid by the standards of the region but nothing to writet home about. Iíve certainly been to worse brewpubs but thereís nothing to recommend this one.

This place is really unique for the area. Cheap movies playing, brewery, free board games and NES, tasty pizza, and really weird decor. I havenít had anything remarkably great from here, but I havenít yet had their stout. I like the ambiance well enough, at least for a change of pace, and the prices are quite fair for the brews.

Located a bit north of town. Lots of parking, so that shouldnít be an issue. The main thing here is the vibe. With games, kid friendly movies, etc., youíll almost definitely be reviewing your beers around families. Taking beer notes while next to two kids playing Battleship was a little bit strange. My server was very nice. She didnít know much about the beer but did go to the brewmaster to answer my questions. And she hooked me up with samples of all nine of their beers on tap for free... before she knew I would be ordering food even! The beer, sadly, was fairly pedestrian, though itís all drinkable. The menu is reasonably priced and imaginative, but sadly, not really that good. I wouldnít put this high on your list of places to go unless you have kids or you have a few days in Asheville.

Super busy spot, with several drafts on, can do a taster. Got some help from one of the brewers in picking out beers. Have a pretty cool thing called mystery hop, where they tell you one of 7 possible hops and you have to guess which hop it is. Solid beers, decent pizza. Worth a quick stop.

Visited here in June of í06 on a Saturday night. Small, but friendly crowd - a few trickled in later for the movie neat concept. Had at least eight of their own on tap - good vriety of choices - plus about a dozen or so guest taps - many from local brewers and a decent import or two. Beer was above average for a brewpub and the food was on par. Friendly, talkative servers - even struck up a conversation with one of the brewer helpers. Stop by if in Asheville - worth a stop - and plenty of parking - unlike downtown!

We walked by the downtown brewery on the way to Hi Wire, but did not visit, so I was excited to get to go to this location the following day. We stopped in for a late lunch. Our pizza was pretty tasty actually. Sesame crust worked better than expected. Portion sizes are enormous. Feels more like a family spot than a brewery, and judging by the number of keg deliveries, Iím guessing they donít do much (if any) brewing at this location. They had a good number of their beers available to sample, and I thought all were solid. The standout for me was a Neapolitan stout on nitro, which sounded questionable, but worked great. I also enjoyed Ninja Bread Man quite a bit. It seemed like the official hangout of the hipster parent, as you could get yourself a beer and then the kids could play video games. Kind of genius actually. They show movies too. Itís somewhere between a brewpub and a chuckie cheese, and yet it seems to work. Good job by them.

The service here was good, but the other location was much more fun, open, and pleasant. Not having the same outdoor setup hurts this place - especially because Iím not the biggest fan of their beers.

What a cool place to grab some food! Beer is average, go with Shiva or a sample tray. Food selection is fast. Great atmosphere.

Brewpub north of downtown. They had 8 house beers the night I visited. They donít have a samper, but you can ask for samples to help you narrow your ultimate beer request. I milked it a bit. In general the beers are pretty good. Didnít eat here. Pretty representative of the rest of Asheville...very liberal crowd. I didnít check out the downstairs theater.

Decent food, OK beer, knowledgeable staff. A college bar ambiance, but seems to have a fairly diverse crowd and is family friendly, which I like. They were out of half of the 10 house brews listed when I was there, and it seemed a few tasted a tad sour from hot kegs, but they did give me a sampler flight in plastic cups of the 5 they did have. OK veggie lasagna.
