A cool new brewpub in Asheville visited on a Wednesday afternoon at opening. The bar is very cool - it is long and twists around the center. The underside has glowing lights that shine on the seats and turn them alternating colors. Dimly lit with a nice music selection in the background. There were ~8 beers on tap with 1/2 pours available. Although I only sampled 2 beers, they were pretty decent (and better than suggested in prior ratings) and Iíd certainly be interested to try more of their offerings. The food is excellent (I had the duck confit strudel). A cool place with great food - I would definitely like to come back here.

Cool place, was completely open air on the early Sunday afternoon with lots of fans going. Nifty bar with color change neon. A good guy on the piano hammering out a few tunes. Food around me looked good but I didnít order any. The beer was solid, 5, normally 6 on tap, Porter and White were standouts.
One of Ashevilleís newest breweries. A fair bit of parking is within close walking distance. Not cheap. but free. Nice ambience... a merging of the old industrial look with exposed brick and an art studio vibe. They have a covered patio which looks like it would be nice on a day that wasnít as cold as when I visited. The food is tasty. Beers are solid, and the assistant brewer stated they are still tweaking recipes and getting used to the equipment, so the beers should get even better. The beers are cheap and the food is average priced. The bartender was nice and helpful and I had a LENGTHY talk with the assistant brewer. Good experience overall, and I hope they do well.
Stopped in right after they opened for the day. Just wanted to try a sampler and have a quick snack. Our bartender was helpful, gave a few tastes just to see what we wanted to try. Cool place with indoor/outdoor seating. Well worth the stop.
Large open bar with plenty of seating around for food. Outside seating when weather permits. Decent selection of taps. I was there just after they opened on a Saturday. Bar wasnít crowded but people were starting to fill the tables which gave me the impression that the food must be good. A place I have nothing bad to say about.
Really cool place. Average beer. Great food. Super nice staff. They even pulled their projector screen down for us to watch a baseball game. Pretty much any sandwich option will be a winner, and the flights are cheap too.
Visited on a Monday early afternoon. The place had just opened, so we were two of only a handful of people. The bar is really cool. Itís like a curvy swirly gig shape. The tap list is just behind the bar in a couple places. They had a nice variety of beer styles available, and for the most part they were quality beers. The bartender was attentive and knowledgeable of their beers. This place is pretty cool. I would recommend visiting.
Hit here for lunch. Big place. Cool curved bar. I should have pointed this out long ago, but literally everywhere we went in Asheville had loads of custom wood and metal work in it - this was no exception. Fermenters behind glass with lots of neon. The beers were just so-so, probably the weakest line up I hit in the town. But the food was great, and again, incredibly cheap. I had freakiní duck confit sliders and the soup of the day - and it was something like $5. Worth hitting for the food, if not the greatest beers, they werenít bad.
stopped in on 7/15/11 and again for lunch three days later.
bitchiní renovated location... very modern yet still soft and inviting...actually, it feels more like a trendy restaurant than a brewery... and no tvs! cheery service. food is above average for a brewpub.... maybe, good even. real frites + no fear of mayo= real food in my book. no doors in the bathroom + dyson hand dryers = awesome... the way every bathroom should be. 6 house brews plus two guest taps at the time... though the house stuff is very uninspired. great lab rat schwag!
