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 wasnít 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.

Iíd like to give this place another try because I thought it had potential, but on our visit it just seemed so-so. Service was sketchy and the place was just not as warm and comfy as what Iím usuallylooking for when I want to spend some quality time with beer. We were there for lunch though and it was pretty crazy. Fien selection.

this place is always a mad house. Good selection if you can get the service.

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.

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.

A nice selection of beers. $3.50/pint for quality microbrews. A good stable of regionals on tap, looked like a good whack of bottles, but didnít get to that tonight. Food was standard pub fare - prices were very reasonable. Kidsí meals with drink were $4.00 - canít beat that. I had the fish sandwich and it was nice and crispy, the sweet potato fries were very good. Nachos are HUGE. Service is blase to sluggish. Gratuity is built in at a rather low threshold - 6 guests or split tickets - which always frosts me. Generally clean, gets a little smoky sometimes. Quaint and artsy.

Good hangout bar with an interesting tiled mall-like seating area away from the bar itself. The selection is reasonable, though nothing special. Itís worth stopping by just to see what they have.

Sportsbar and restaurant in the heart of downtown Asheville. Pretty cool place with big panel-type windows that open up to the street when the weather is nice. Watched a few World Cup matches as I sampled their draught selection. Lots of regional and local brews on tap from places like Pisgah and Sweetwater. The best I had was Oskar Blues Old Chub. Food was okay.

Tip: park in the Rankin Ave. garage directly across the street on level 5. This is very cheap parking which is a very short walk to the door. This place really loans itself to a spot to hang out with a group of friends. Itís always bustling with activity and there is a large projection TV in the middle of the lobby area. The beer selction is very extensive, but doesnít have the more interesting imports that Hannah Flannagans may get or the more interesting NC brews that Barleyís frequently offers. Still, there are around 150 beers or so and anyone should find something good to drink here.

good selection right in the middle of asheville. about 30 taps spread around the bar. service was polite but indifferent. food was good at lunch but not outstanding (asked for no-onions and it came loaded with onions).
