This place is a bit tricky to find. In an industrial part of town just before a bridge to Western Asheville (across the French Broad, I assume). The brewery is located on the bottom level of a building full of art studios and the like. Very arsty vibe to the place. There is a large parking lot in front of the brewery on the lower level, but I never did figure out how to get to it as I found parking above. The place is small with seats for maybe 12 people inside and more outside. The ambiance is laid back and nice. Peanuts are around, so people with allergies be forewarned. They have several beers on tap and the bartender, who was very nice, gave me several samples for free, even when I offerered to pay for them. The beer here is top notch. Of the Asheville breweries I hadn’t experienced before visiting the area, this was by far the most impressive. Some are better than others, of course, but overall they know what they’re doing. Definitely a recommended stop.

Absolutely cosy and relaxing place by the river edge in hipster area of Asheville. The brews were tasty and service was nice. The sun was shining and life was good. What else would I need?

Visited during RBWG.I really enjoyed the vibe of this place. There’s quite a bit of off-beat decorations and flourishes to the design of the drinking area. The bartenders were initially pretty unwelcoming, but service rapidly improved after the head brewer joined our group. There were roughly 8 beers on offer, primarily Belgian in style. I really enjoyed the raspberry imperial stout. Other stuff I found to be a bit too sweet for my tastes. Prices were fair. Overall, worth checking out if you’re on an extended tour of Asheville.

Funky little brewery tucked back along an old industrial area along the French Broad River. A little off the beaten path in the river arts district of Asheville. Showed up mid-afternoon on a scorching day, sat on the porch and had some peanuts. I had Wedge’s Imperial Stout, the best beer I had all weekend in Asheville. I wanted to take home a case but none was available except on tap. Low prices- I think all drafts were like $3 or $3.50. Update: Went back here and most of what I said above is true, but on a crowded weekend, one bartender was flat-out mean to the patrons. The guy was cool, but the girl was just mean. That was a bummer.

Visited during RBWG 2014. They weren’t ready for a big group, so the bartender took it out on us with yelling. They stopped doing tasters after serving a few people because "it was too busy". Prices were on the high side compared other places we visited. Seems like a nice place to drink, but I wouldn’t go back. Disappointing.

One of the most interesting brewpubs I’ve been to in the outskirts of Asheville. Visited right after opening (4pm) on a Wednesday late afternoon. Even though it had just opened, there were already a few people there and within 1/2 hour, the seats (bar stools along a very small bar) were filled. By the time we left a few hours later, the place was quite packed with people standing inside and many sitting outside (heated I assume but not sure...). It’s a very small place with very few seats, so you’ve got to get there early for any hope at a seat. The seats face an open window (can be brutal when the sun is setting...) overlooking a railroad track. As mentioned, there is no food but they do give you (free) peanuts and a bucket to de-shell them. There were ~6 beers on tap with interesting styles and all very tasty. Obviously the beer is good, but I was very surprised by how crowded this place was (mostly locals also, who often ordered pitchers). The prices are good but not super cheap either. My 2nd favorite brewpub in Asheville.

Visited during RBWG 2014. A small space around back of a larger building. A nice outdoor space that allowed for a food truck to pull up and serve some food. Service was a touch slow, but place was quite swamped as well. There were about 9 or 10 beers available on tap. Beers were quite cheap. A nice spot and one of the many good breweries in Asheville.

We went to check out the River Art District on our way out of town, and semi-stumbled on Wedge. There were only about 6-7 people inside the small brewery that sort of hides down the stairs from the main street of the district. Parking was very easy, we parked at the top of the outdoor stairs, but there appeared to be a large lot down on the lower level as well. The backyard seemed great for outdoor drinking, though it wasn’t the greatest weather day on our visit, so it was empty. The beers were really quite tasty. It isn’t an out-of-this-world destination, just a pleasant, small brewery with good beer. Definitely worth a visit, especially if the weather is friendly.

A very good brewery in Asheville that cranks out good fresh IPA along with a few others. Only 4 beers on tap when we were there mid-June, but the three that we tried were solid. Nice outdoor atmosphere too. I just wish they had a better selection (and maybe some food).

Kinda out of the way in the art district. The earthy crowd hangs here. Good beer and service.
