Large place with a central bar and front windowsill seating. Food was excellent, beers were just OK. Good service. Live music when we visited on Sat nite.

Located in downtown Asheville. Spacious inside; seems like they are going for a retro theme but that could have just been the Michael Jackson "Beat It" that was playing when I got there. As the case with all my stops in Asheville, this place was fairly busy. I just stopped by for a beer so didnít try the food. It looked pretty good; typical pub fare. No TVs. They have a very cool large patio area outside shielded from the sun. A handful of house brews on tap, thatís it. I tried the Belgian Wit, which was quite good. One of the better brews I tried while visiting Asheville. $3.75 pints, nice. The limited beer menu will prevent this one from being one of the best stops in town but they are in a great location and certainly contribute to the impressive beer scene in Asheville.

We stopped in here for lunch and a beer sampler. Food was better than the beer, but it was worth the stop. Only 4 beers on draft though. Looked like it might be a cool night spot, as it had 2 spots for live music (a main bar and back bar).

The wife and I were in Asheville a couple weeks ago and decided to check out BeerAdvocate to see where we should visit and we decided to check out Lexington Avenue Brewery since we were close by. The layout of the place was very cool. I ordered a French Dip sandwich which was very good (I canít remember what the wife ordered). To be honest, their beer was pretty good, but nothing special. They didnít seem to have anything available besides their brews which is cool (if not disappointing because their beer wasnít that great). Itís a place that would be worth checking out, but I think itís probably more of a nightlife spot than a place that true beer lovers would frequent.

Neat bar design; thatís about it. Just too gimmicky to be a legitimate beer bar. The open air patio is great unless you actually want to taste your beer. The beer is ok. Good atmosphere if youíre looking for a party scene.

Contemporary feel with friendly service and a long curvy bar. Sampler of 6 beers was only $6. I didnít eat but the food that came by smelled delicious. Nice place, definitely worth stopping in.

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!

October 2011. This place has the most "upscale" presentation among the many Asheville brewcations. In fact the day we visited, we were turned away at their advertised opening time because they were "unveiling a new menu" ... We did end up having some lunch here, and the food was pretty good. The beers, however, were less than awe-inspiring. That aside, this was an enjoyable-enough stop. (#551)

This was your standard brewpub you get in about any city but they do a few higher gravity beers. The ambiance was ok, that of a typical restaurant. Ther service was ok but the staff did not seem knowledgeable outside of the realm of their beers. I had to help the guy beside me find a beer he liked, they were clueless. The food was a bit pricey but pretty good. Overall a "ah what the hell" type of visit but if you are limited on time, skip it for better beer places.

got there a little after 10pm and was informed the kitchen was closed, but there was a taco stand outside that you could buy 4 types of tacos for a couple bucks each..they had only 5 beers on tap and no octoberfest was told they were out. the beers served in plastic cups was on the cold side..normally i like it a little warmer so i just let it set and wait. the food menu looked decent enough maybe next time weíll get there in time to eat. it was busy enough to kick back and watch people moving around. a bit loud but that passed the closer it got to midnight. willing to give it another chance next time around.
