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.

Large place with pretty decent food. Pretty good selection of crafts, but most of your basics that can be had anywhere. Ok selection of locals. Definitely had that frat vibe, younger crowd going. We havenít been back, too many other options in town which are much better.

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 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.

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.

Stopped in for lunch and to kick off a beer drinking weekend in Asheville. Ambiance is good. Itís 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 isnít 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 Smithwickís (lost points). I would certainly return here for food and ambiance. The beer you can get anywhere.

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.

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.

Horrible service. Iíve been 4 times, and every time I go the bartenders have been unneccessarily rude. Besides that, the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Great place to visit maybe if youíre from out of town. After repeated visits, its trendiness wears off. I swear I will never go again.
