Great brewery with world class beer. Keep in mind this facility (and its surroundings) are all about the beer. Not for folks that are looking for a brewpub or a macro-brewery experience. Industrial ambiance, with spacious outdoor accommodations including lawn games and upper patio. From our experience the beers are very consistent and true to style if not some what superior to other regional examples at least with in Ashevilles borders. Certainly a european-esque feel to the balance and clarity of their brews with good complexity and flavor while being way to drinkable for most of their lofty ABV.

Rustic exterior, no frills, just peanuts, corn hole and beer...excellent beer. Iron Rail IPA is a juicy malt forward beer super consistent. 3rd rail this year is liquid hoppy gold, take your time here though its a monster. Vladim Bora is the Raz. Imp Stout, that usually rings in the holidays and lasts through Feb. Over all the best beer brewed in Asheville currently in regards to consistency, balance and flavor. would like to see some barrel aged beers from these guys and some cask in the future to really send them into the halls of greatness.

UPDATE 4-11-10: Okay, Wedge guys, the honeymoon may be over. Iím backing off my 100 rating. Why? Sure, I understand youíre a "tasting room" only and canít do, by law, some of the things a bar can do. But lately Iím think your "ambiance" sucks. See here: the sun pours down on this place and you have nothing in place to keep those UVs out of my aging face. Not to mention, it gets damned hot. Awnings. The word is, awnings. And then there are those damned obnoxious tourists flocking in every damned Saturday and Sunday. I am tired of waiting in line an hour just to get a refill.
OK, I understand you canít help that youíre SOOOO popular. I feel now like Iím the nerd getting rejected by the most popular girl in high school.
Please do some things to make my favorite brew pub more locals friendly!
ORIGINAL RATING: I have to max the rating points for this place because itís quickly become my favorite Asheville haunt. I love this place, and shall I count the ways?
1. West Asheville funky arts district setting, a warehouse much like all the art studios surrounding it. Off the beaten path, i.e., far from the maddening downtown tourist crowd.
2. A diverse beer menu.
3. Salted peanuts for free.
4. Outdoor patio seating and plenty of it.
5. Abundantly happy and friendly bar staff.
6. Tasty beers.
7. Cheap beers. Have never paid more than 3.50 for a pint.
8. Symbiotic grilled cookout on Friday and Sunday nights (most of them) featuring burgers, chili, fish tacos and such for around 5 bucks.
9. Free jazzy acoustic music show Sunday evenings.

I love stopping by this place. Itís just down the road from the Grey Eagle music venue, so it makes a good pre-game spot before my friends and I go to shows there. Prices are great, with the flat rate on all pints, and you canít beat getting a pitcher to share with buddies. And the beer is all excellent. Definitely worth the time to find this little gem off the main drag in Asheville.

Best brewery in Asheville. Cool vibe, reasonable prices on pints/pitchers. They just need to get some more space to satisfy the growing demand for their brews.

Very art hipster vibe to this establishment; on the ground floor of an art collective. One small bar for seating inside, plenty of tables and chairs outside. Service was fair, nice and knowledgeable; I think they were training someone new the day I showed up. Selection is just their beer, but all that I tried were superb. No food there, but food trucks show up in mass on multiple occasions. Very reasonable pricing considering the the quality of beer you are drinking. The best micro brewery in town in my opinion. Beers are top notch, just wish I could take home more than just the IPA.

This bar is fairly popular, but all they have is beer and peanuts. Luckily, the beer is good enough to justify the visit and theyíre in the art gallery district along the French Broad River so thereís more reason to go visit than just the beer. Also, if youíre lucky, the food truck with the crepes, tamales, and empanadas will show up.

Such a cool brewery. Located on the train tracks south of downtown Asheville. Sounds like they have 7 to 10 of their beers on tap at all time, but they only growler one :( Every night they have a food truck outside, and I think that is always a great option for breweries without their own food. A bunch of "scene" girls working there who knew the beer but also werenít too amped to talk while working. Polite enough though.

We stopped by about an hour before the place was supposed to open but the owner/brewer was gracious and more than happy to pour us a couple of beers. It in a dicey looking area, but the interior is clean and well thought out, if a bit cozy. There is a huge patio area, but it was too cold to sit there - we canít wait to go there when its warmer out. Really cool place.
