Tried the Chocolate Porter. Should have been called Chocolate Lager. Not what I have come to expect from a Porter. Very light, and really did not have to taste I was expecting.

In my recent trip to Asheville, we visited nearly every brewery in town and LAB was definitely the nicest looking, but sadly also had clearly the worst beer. It has an open air design...the brewery is visible in the middle with cool colored lights showing off the tanks. The place has a modern, slick feel. My group split a few pitchers of the ESB, Pale Ale, IPA, and Nitro Porter, all of which were below average for their style. We split a bunch of appetizers, which were fancied up versions of bar food. The food was better than the beer, though overpriced for the quantity. Itís a new place, so hopefully their beer improves after theyíve worked out the kinks. Asheville has too many better options for me to rush 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.

Modern brewpub in the heart of downtown. The Ambiance didnít really do much for me - the set up was nice enough, but a bit pretencious for the area and the concept. Tried 3 of 7 on tap and they were about average. I was later told that their Wit is really good so Iíll go back to try it. Service was really good and got a chance to talk to the brewer quite a bit. Didnít order food, but the Kobe slliders looked awesome. Not a bad place, but better places to go in Asheville.

Very cool place. Loved the atmosphere. The burger was exceptional. The sampler flight was a reasonable price. The bartender was knowlegable and fast. But the beers were about average, and a little subpar for asheville. But the wit was stellar, and worth the trip just for that beer. Hope these guys do well.

Nice pretty building right downtown. Very hip and modern, but maybe in a self conscious way. Service was fine, Beer ranged from OK to pretty good. Food was...well, weíll give íem another shot later. Update: Food got better

What an excellent location for a brewpub in Asheville. It is right in the middle of downtown so close to a massive, affordable parking garage. The building is very nice and open with tasteful and sparse decor. It fits right in with the rest of the town without looking exactly like everywhere else in town. The beer selection is pretty fair, a reasonable array of styles are offered. I had two and was neither impressed nor depressed by either. We shared two appetizers: kobe sliders and fish and chips. Both were almost tapas style, it was all about flavor and presentation and not so much about getting filled up. The kobe sliders were extremely delicious and the fish and chips were fair. My overall experience was pretty decent. Given its awesome location and a chance to try even more local beer in the AVL scene, Iíll be returning soon enough.

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.
