This is the coolest place ever! There are so many random pieces of art and other junk on the walls, you could spend a week just looking at it all. Terrific tasting, reasonably priced pizza. The only downside: even though their beers are inexpensive, they are not all that great. Just your average brews. But the theater plus the game room make this place a standard for all the locals. Good luck finding a table, they seem to stay busy all the time. Not a true *beer* destination, but certainly a good time. I cannot wait to go back!
Super busy spot, with several drafts on, can do a taster. Got some help from one of the brewers in picking out beers. Have a pretty cool thing called mystery hop, where they tell you one of 7 possible hops and you have to guess which hop it is. Solid beers, decent pizza. Worth a quick stop.
Located next to a Bruggers Bagels who are very generous with their wi-fi. The parking lot needs to seriously be repaved. The ambiance was eclectic playing up a movie theater. In fact they are a second-run movie house in addition to a restaurant. The beers ranged from meh to decent. Nothing really blew my socks away. The guy behind the bar seemed nice but was incredibly forgetful. The pizza was solid by the standards of the region but nothing to writet home about. I’ve certainly been to worse brewpubs but there’s nothing to recommend this one.
The service here was good, but the other location was much more fun, open, and pleasant. Not having the same outdoor setup hurts this place - especially because I’m not the biggest fan of their beers.

without trying to be too un-P.C. I’m gonna go out on a limb and steretype the right person to enjoy this place. I was with some conservative and they hated it. if your moderate to liberal you’ll love it. its sort of hippy-ish along with the general feel of asheville. lots of funky colors and murals and artwork all over the place. it feels a bit disorganized and disorienting with all the decor but its an inviting maze of chaos. waiters are young and knowledgeable but kind of laxidasical. (I was a waitress so I can say this). it took forever for someone to give us a menu, get our drinks, get our food and the waiter/waitress (we seemed to have been served by three different people throughout the night) completely disappeared when we needed our check and were trying to get out of there. some of the pizzas in my group were awesome, the others were only o.k. so it seems to be hit or miss. there are lots of diff. kinds of pizzas but you must go there for pizza. if you aren’t in a rush and there to stay and have some beers/drinks then you’ll probably enjoy the mish-mosh of people and colors that the atmosphere invites. otherwise, you might want to pick somewhere faster, cleaner and more sane.
Location is a strange fantastical mix of sci-fi and fantasy paintings and images slathered all over the walls and tables. Very strange ambience. Their pizza is very good, however. The beer is decent, but not among my favorites that are found in Asheville. Worth a visit.
