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.

We came here on a pretty full evening, after dinner time. Fairly crowded as one would expect at that time of night. Great location for the downtown restaurants and hotels. I thought the beers were only okay. Definitely not my favorite in Asheville. Still, this place is worth a stop in if for nothing else the location. Nice looking place as well on the inside. Seemed like a quality spot for groups, though we were only 2.

Quick stop for a flight while waiting for Eva to finish yoga. Cool place for a bunch of college kids to drink different beers but the quality was lacking. When I asked if they served "tasters" the bar tender looked at me and said "flights?" With some attitude. Besides that one guy the service was friendly. Worth a quick stop if you have the time.

Large brewpub with ok beers and selection. Preset flight. Historic for rock acts. Service and ambiance average or so.

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.

Visited 20/09/2012. Friendly open bar with a welcoming open feel to it. Tragically, their food was far more memorable and of "slow food" quality than most of their hastily-concocted and sometimes forced (Razberry porter) brewpub brews, with no signature home tap standing out. Had an excellent roast beef sandwich with tasty sides. Still a fun afternoon visit with flights & bites with friendly personel preparing for the eveningís onstorm. As with many US brewpubs, this could be a great stop if their beers were given more time to mature and develop to grow a more confident taste profile within the style, instead of a young brewer churning out more and more zany crossover recipes to fill the blackboards.

Dark art studio with a 90s pizza bar vibe. Ate food, food was decent. Beer was shit. No joke, cayenne pepper and coconut in a mild ale. Got a glass of bathtub brew California Common as well. Coffee was decent.

Interior is open, but exposed brick walls and simple furniture give it a warm, welcoming, unpretentious atmosphere. Music is up, but not too loud. Service was a little slow; however, the place was jumping so give them a little slack. Food is very tasty and nicely prepared. They offer mainly their own brews, which are palatable if not outstanding. Prices are quite reasonable. If youíre in Asheville for a few days and have some spare time, pay íem a visit.

Was in over the Christmas holidays and forgot to rate it. A very modern feel to it, BUT! I didnít see anything from the outside that actually said Lexington Avenue Brewery. In fact, I bought a logo pint glass and it also just said LAB. In my mind this is a mistake - but thatís me. The food was quite good! I believe I had a beef stew. The beers were middle of the road in both style, selection and quality. Not bad.

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.

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.
