Stopped here to try out some local brews while in the area. You get to pick your own flights, which is nice, so you can try exactly what you want For a small place, they have quite a few brews on tap, mostly their own and almost all local. Food is decent, but nothing to speak all that highly of. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Not only is this place a brew-pub, and a pizza bakery, it is also a converted movie theater. Excellent murals adorn the walls inside and out. The furniture and pool tables are a little grungy, but this only adds to the atmosphere. The in-house brews are excellent for the price. Plus you can see second-run movies on a big screen for $2 while you eat and drink. When they’re not showing movies on the big screen there’s usually sports, or cartoons. You really can’t beat this place for overall entertainment value. If you’re in Asheville you MUST visit t his place.
North on Merrimon Ave from Bruisin Ales. It seems to be a movie theater as well. Amazing decor. From Star Wars Cantina scene murals to Raising Arizona on the bathroom doors, Aquaman, Castle scene, to pizza and beer Dali. Very cool. Beers are well done as well. Pizza is well made... endless toppings. Basics to extreme (even peanuts??) Great stop.
I just stopped in for a late nightcap and was in and out in about 45 minutes, but this is a very cool place and I look forward to returning for a more relaxed session. They had a nice selection and a very attentive staff. A great place!
Visited here in June of ’06 on a Saturday night. Small, but friendly crowd - a few trickled in later for the movie neat concept. Had at least eight of their own on tap - good vriety of choices - plus about a dozen or so guest taps - many from local brewers and a decent import or two. Beer was above average for a brewpub and the food was on par. Friendly, talkative servers - even struck up a conversation with one of the brewer helpers. Stop by if in Asheville - worth a stop - and plenty of parking - unlike downtown!
My first stop in Asheville. Went here for dinner and a few brews. The atmosphere is very laid back; overflow parking, which was needed. I didn’t get the chance to visit the other location. This one is just outside of the heart of downtown Asheville. The beer here was, what I’d term as pretty good but nothing amazing. A handful of decent guest taps to go with their house brews. The pizza was solid. The wait staff did a good job. I appreciate the patience as we were catching up with a friend and sat there a while before ordering food. Free WiFi is easy to get on. I was kind of expecting a downtown vibe but this didn’t have that feel. The patio area is just okay. Seemed like a popular locals hang out and certainly family friendly. I enjoyed this place.
Place looks like an old autobody shop. Inside is all sorts of wacky colors and flags for the World cup with yellow walls. Bar is long and open with only house brews on tap. Beers are slightly above average. Outside has tables under a large overhang with a projector tv and cornhole games for a chill atmosphere.
