Nice selection of locals and various well distributed US micros. Nightlife is hopping here so get there early if you want a table. I love the prices in this town as well.

Within walking distance of several other Asheville stops. Not really much of a taphouse vibe, as it seems to be in an office building, but windows in the front did lead to a nice, open feel. My server was helpful, very knowledgeable about the beer list and exceptionally friendly, and I overheard the server of the table next to me also being friendly. They have lots of regional craft beer on tap, including some lesser available local beer, as well as lots of US and foreign selections. While I only had North Carolina beers while there, the tab only came to about $10 which was nice. I did not take advantage of the food menu. Definitely a recommended stop.

stopped in to this huge place 7/17/11.... again, it’s friggin huge... and dark. beer list is quite large but less locally diverse than barley’s (where i had just come from). it had a nice vibe... i guess a dive-y, darker, more grimy clientele... so i fit in well. service was spot on.

Large, dimly lit bar with a large selection of bottled beer. Bartender knew her stuff and was helpful as well as beautiful. Only thing that was a little odd was an undercover cop snooping around checking ideas and scoping people.

Stopped in for lunch and to kick off a beer drinking weekend in Asheville. Ambiance is good. It’s got something for everyone, the place is huge. The front windows open completely to create an outdoor feel which was great on a spring afternoon. Expected a more german influenced menu by the name, but the food is more local/regional which isn’t bad. Menu is comprehensive. They did have a bratwurst special with house pretzel roll and kraut. It was awesome. Other food we tried was also very good. Beer list is quite long, although not a lot of local beer which was surprising and a bit disappointing for us. Nothing very unusual on the beer list, just lots of choices. Service was average. We had hoped for a local suggestion but got nowhere with that request. The server actually recommended I have a Smithwick’s (lost points). I would certainly return here for food and ambiance. The beer you can get anywhere.

pretty cool setting down town, split up a bit in a lobby setting of a hotel, but pretty cool, has some large screen TV/s and the lot, Beer selection was pretty good, good selection of bottles as well as on tap, waiters did not know too much about beer, but bartenders knew a little more... pretty cool spot.

we went on a drizzly sunday afternoon right after xmas, so you can imagine it was pretty dead. we were seating inside. as i saw the fratboy-looking waiter approach, i thought i wasn’t going to get a good recommendation from him based on my preferences. boy, shows you dont judge a book by its cover. the guy knew me exactly the right thing (Delerium Tremens), and a couple of other good belgian ales i hadnt tried before. service suffered a little as the place got a little more busy, but still a pretty good experience. the food was pretty good, nothing special. prices were about where they should be. i will definitely be back, and when a beer urge calls, its will be my go-to place.

I realized I forgot to rate this place as i was reading a trip report from my mountaineering website where i mentioned coming here. Stopped in for lunch and a few beers after climbing Mt Mitchell before running to airport. Kinda corporate but overall cool place with decent selection of locals to rate and food was good. the staff was friendly

Stopped in for a beer after some shopping. Nice selection of imports, micros, and local beers. Good service. Kind of a sports bar feel, a little dark. Do have some smokers in there, too.

Stop #4 of Asheville bar tour. This place had the best beer selection of any bar I visited in Asheville. Tons of local beers here but also the best selection of other American micros. Crowd seemed different here than the other bars - more frat guy type of place.
