Stopped by for lunch on a Friday Afternoon. Itís a converted gas station and definitely has a worn down vibe. Well, maybe "broken in" is a better way to put it. The service was attentive, the food was tasty, and the selection was Asheville average, which is pretty good everywhere else...

Converted gas station with a good deal of character. Lots of regional taps plus good and not good (Bud, etc) bottles. Service was friendly and knowledgeable, food was unique and well-presented, overall experience was what I have come to expect in Asheville. Good stuff!

Stopped by with jackl on the way out of town after RBWG. Nice tap selection with lots of local stuff and some cool non-local things, including Hopslam on our visit. Prices on beer were fairly decent. Bartender was pleasant but was busy and seemed like she could have used some help. Definite garage vibe and on a Sunday afternoon the place was packed. Extensive food menu, burgers, sandwiches and the like. I had an excellent quesadilla. Food prices were solid. Considering the disappointing experience I had at another place across the street, this was a pleasant experience.

I love that they repurposed an old garage. It gives the bar an intimacy that makes it perfect as a place to hang out with friends and enjoy a couple of local craft beer. They have mostly local craft that I assume from the board are dedicated but rotate with the seasons. The food tends to be on the hot side which suits me just find. The jalapeno sliders were especially tasty. Like many places here the prices are incredibly reasonable especially compared with what you pay in the northeast. It may not be a beer destination place, but if youíre in West Asheville you could do hell of a lot worse for a Tuesday night.

A converted gas station with mainly local tap lines and decent grub. Not a destination place, but we must complete our Asheville collection.

Last time I went to UJ they had Olde Hickory Stout on tap. Nuff said. Seriously, itís a great place but not a must, although Iím a huge fan of how this place, Westville Pub, and Hops and Vines for a nice "Beer-muda Triangle" in West Asheville. Selection tends to be a little more interesting here than at Westville.

Another great local joint. The outside patio is packed on nice evenings. Beer choices are excellent and change frequently. Food is typical pub fare and quality can vary from visit to visit. Service is always good and the staff know their beer. A nice place to hang in funky West Asheville.

When in Western Asheville, this is a fantastic stop. We stopped in on a Thursday night and the ambiance was lively, but not packed to the gills. A nice patio was available though it was raining pretty hard during our visit. The menu looks good with typical Asheville type cuisine, but we had already eaten before our visit and couldnít consume more solids. The beer list, like many places in Asheville, is very solid. Mostly local beer was represented but a few things from Stone, Victory and the like were available. What made this a mandatory stop was the fact that they had Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout on tap. With such a solid, rotating beer list and a rare gem like that on tap, I would stop back in the future just to see what they had.
