One of the more upscale brewpubs in town, with an industrial loft feel and a neat curved bar, along with covered patio seating. I love the IPA here, and they usually have 7-8 other taps on. Food is excellent and uses locally-sourced ingredients when possible. Service is always good. Itís often crowded, especially at night. A cool place to hang out, people-watch, and have some decent food and beer.

A cool new brewpub in Asheville visited on a Wednesday afternoon at opening. The bar is very cool - it is long and twists around the center. The underside has glowing lights that shine on the seats and turn them alternating colors. Dimly lit with a nice music selection in the background. There were ~8 beers on tap with 1/2 pours available. Although I only sampled 2 beers, they were pretty decent (and better than suggested in prior ratings) and Iíd certainly be interested to try more of their offerings. The food is excellent (I had the duck confit strudel). A cool place with great food - I would definitely like to come back here.

They have some tasty beer, but I havenít had the food yet. It may get a little crowded at night, but still a nice place to visit.

Tried the Chocolate Porter. Should have been called Chocolate Lager. Not what I have come to expect from a Porter. Very light, and really did not have to taste I was expecting.

In my recent trip to Asheville, we visited nearly every brewery in town and LAB was definitely the nicest looking, but sadly also had clearly the worst beer. It has an open air design...the brewery is visible in the middle with cool colored lights showing off the tanks. The place has a modern, slick feel. My group split a few pitchers of the ESB, Pale Ale, IPA, and Nitro Porter, all of which were below average for their style. We split a bunch of appetizers, which were fancied up versions of bar food. The food was better than the beer, though overpriced for the quantity. Itís a new place, so hopefully their beer improves after theyíve worked out the kinks. Asheville has too many better options for me to rush back here.

Cool place, was completely open air on the early Sunday afternoon with lots of fans going. Nifty bar with color change neon. A good guy on the piano hammering out a few tunes. Food around me looked good but I didnít order any. The beer was solid, 5, normally 6 on tap, Porter and White were standouts.

Modern brewpub in the heart of downtown. The Ambiance didnít really do much for me - the set up was nice enough, but a bit pretencious for the area and the concept. Tried 3 of 7 on tap and they were about average. I was later told that their Wit is really good so Iíll go back to try it. Service was really good and got a chance to talk to the brewer quite a bit. Didnít order food, but the Kobe slliders looked awesome. Not a bad place, but better places to go in Asheville.

Very cool place. Loved the atmosphere. The burger was exceptional. The sampler flight was a reasonable price. The bartender was knowlegable and fast. But the beers were about average, and a little subpar for asheville. But the wit was stellar, and worth the trip just for that beer. Hope these guys do well.

Nice pretty building right downtown. Very hip and modern, but maybe in a self conscious way. Service was fine, Beer ranged from OK to pretty good. Food was...well, weíll give íem another shot later. Update: Food got better
