You have to go halfway down the gravel rear parking area from Lyman St, the pub is not accessible from the street address. Narrow patio outside, and an awkward (but neat and clean) indoor area lined with homebuilt bartop. Amusing mix of customers… a few college jocks; lots of granola girls; some guys we passed on the street that we thought were homeless, but who came in later for pints; forty-something slumming hipsters. Everyone was super friendly. Eight draught beers (fermenters visible behind the bar) ranging from 4.8% to 9%abv, and bartenders are happy to pour free samples. We tried half of them, all solid if unspectacular… malt-driven and cloudy, reminding me of the extract brews I was making in my second year of homebrewing. Food is available via a symbiotic concession stand in the parking lot, and I saw someone eating takeout pizza. If you’re already nearby, I’d recommend it just to rub shoulders in the ridiculous bar area, otherwise…

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

Quirky, but wonderful place to visit. Feels like somebody put their barrels in an old garage that has nice nooks and crannies. Outdoor patio looks inviting, but not on a snowy night. Bartender is proud of the beers, customers are knowledgeable and friendly, beers are very good. Fun place.

A nice little brewery in the artsy fartsy district of Asheville. I’ve been here twice and enjoyed the beers. There isn’t much room indoors but plenty of places to sit outside. They do not serve food but there are usually food trucks parked around. It’s a little out of the way of the other Asheville stuff but worth stopping by for a few pints.

hard to give a true score when you have to add for food. but free peanuts are a great touch because its all they have. this is a funky little brewery with irons works as your decor. plain and simple you get a beer and you hang out. no frills and nothing fancy. had their belgium wit and it was very good. i can see when its hot outside a hard place to hang out because you dont have much cover. the inside is very small maybe 6 bar stools. but lots of outdoor space. took us awhile to find this gem but once we did it was great. the view from the patio is a train...and then a train...did i mention the free peanuts. very reasonable on prices as well..only place to get their beer no distribution.
made 2nd visit on 9/4/11. same place same great beers just a couple updates additional bar stools inside good thing. make shift outdoor movie theater on the side of a truck and a burrito wagon serving food. but you gotta have the peanuts.

Narrowest brewery I’ve ever seen - I now understand why it is called Wedge. Cool little artist galleries in the building above the brewery. Nice tap list, and the beers were all very, very good. Place very, very quickly filled up at 5 PM, with loads of people hanging outside even in the winter. Peanuts available for nibbling. Friendly staff. Cornhole outside, they have really tried to make this a good place to hang out. And succeeded. My wife and I both really liked this one.

Small place located in the lower level of an art studio. Can be a bit difficult to find and I wandered around a little bit before I found it. Very small interior but a large exterior that would be awesome in the warmer months. Selection or 6 or 7 beers on tap. Prices were good, ~$4 a pint. I had 2 beers and both were very good. No food available from what I saw but I did see a list of food trucks that regularly stop by. Staff was friendly and I hope to be back soon.

Visited with much of the clan during RBWG. Small but cool little space with bonus points for plenty of space for cornholin’. The manager/head bartender was definitely off putting, definitely overwhelmed by the sheer number of people in at once. I’m betting that was an aberration based on the unique circumstances of our visit, and I’ve heard things went more smoothly with the second group. Good beers, so I’d visit again.

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.

Fun, funky little taproom hidden in a warehouse district down by the tracks. The inside isn’t large with space for about a dozen or maybe 20 people to find barstool spots. We hung out around a table on the porch with a scenic view of the railroad tracks, sipping on an array of well-made beers. I loved the vibe here, loved the free peanuts and friendly service, loved the beers. This was a highlight of a great Asheville beer trip.
