Visited while on vacation on our way back into Asheville. A very industrial building and feel. Ambiance felt like a brewery to the T. An outside seating area but we sat at the bar and had flights. About 20 beers of their own and five guest taps. Service was great, prompt. Prices were reasonable. About $2/taster. Taps varied from fruity wheat beers to a wine barrel aged quad. Taking label bias away, the beers here really surprised me. I saw their stuff all over but never bothered to try it. Really glad I stopped in and had most (maybe all) of their beers. Ambiance is the biggest drawback but the beer makes the stop worth it.
As advertised -- a hole in the warehouse wall, but somehow they have made it inviting. The beers were good. There’s NO food except for humus and chips (which were good but not worthy of a food rating).

Based on several visits, including some during events. In addition to a brewpub with a (newly improved) stage, Pisgah has a seasonally open outdoor stage for larger acts. Whoever books their musical acts does a great job. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Legendary beer with limited distribution. Always seems to be something on tap here that is available no where else.
Located in a run-down industrial park, in a squat, little building. Once inside the taproom, the industrial feeling doesn’t go away, but it is at least a welcoming, trendy, open area. The bartender was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and knew how to properly pour a nitro stout, but demerits for only accepting cash. The spread of house beers was very nice, and the guest taps were nice. The prices were a little high, I thought, especially for a growler. This is a nice gem in an area you wouldn’t expect it. Clearly popular with locals, especially the working class folks who wouldn’t be caught dead in most of the bars in downtown Asheville.
Pisgah is on an industrial estate and has a large tasting room with a stage draped in purple crushed velvet. It’s quite basic and not particularly cosy but they had a very good beer line up - 12 of their own beers and about 10 guests.

This is a fairly wide open and dark space, set up mostly for bands it seems. The building is rather industrial and run-down, but that has seemingly no effect on the beer. There was ample house beers flowing and a prompt bartender serving them.
> Music venue with big house beer selection and guest taps
>> Really interesting space, purple curtains, black walls, mirror tap list with white writing, music stage. Sort of looks like a music venue that happens to have a huge tap list. Selection was extensive with tops of house beers and some interesting guest beers like Burial’s Skillet Donut Stout, which was one of the best things available. Tasters available, prices were standard. Got to try some special edition stuff like Chocolatized Vortex II. Would probably come here for a concert as otherwise the ambiance might be a bit awkward with all the empty space. It was a bit surreal.
Big open room that serves as a music venue and a brewpub. Not much seating other than at the bar. Beers were pretty solid. Approximately 10 Pisgah beers on tap, as well as several other guest beers (Sampler trays offered). Definitely worth checking out.
Visited during RBWG 2014. A large long bar with a stage opposite it which seems like it would make it a good venue. There were probably 10 house beers as well as a few guest beers. Bartenders were quick and knowledgeable. Prices were quite nice. A cool place and would like to come for a show some time.
Pisgah’s brewery and pub are located in a big shell building in an industrial park about 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. The brewpub space is huge, with a lot of open space and big stage - I guess it’s a pretty big music venue, given the setup and lighting. The bar on the other side has a good amount of house and guest taps, with a wide range of stuff. The beers are really good, and prices are very fair. The bartender knew a ton about the brewery and its operation - I’m guessing he was one of the brewers, though I didn’t think to ask - but everyone was super friendly and welcoming. Excellent place. I’ll be back.
