we went on a drizzly sunday afternoon right after xmas, so you can imagine it was pretty dead. we were seating inside. as i saw the fratboy-looking waiter approach, i thought i wasn’t going to get a good recommendation from him based on my preferences. boy, shows you dont judge a book by its cover. the guy knew me exactly the right thing (Delerium Tremens), and a couple of other good belgian ales i hadnt tried before. service suffered a little as the place got a little more busy, but still a pretty good experience. the food was pretty good, nothing special. prices were about where they should be. i will definitely be back, and when a beer urge calls, its will be my go-to place.
A generally friendly place with a decent selection of beers. Not much that you can’t find elsewhere. I didn’t have the food so I can’t really comment on that. Prices seems a touch higher than elsewhere. Not a bad place to stop though.
Decent place with a nice selection of local micros and imports, although I was hoping for a bigger german selection. Food was nice and tasty as well as very good servers. It just didn’t stand out as someplace I must go to again.
Last stop of our first night in town. Friendly bartender. Large bar and seating area. About 25 beers on draft, mostly local or regional stuff. Lots of TVs. Had almost a seemingly sports bar vibe to it. Not bad.
good selection right in the middle of asheville. about 30 taps spread around the bar. service was polite but indifferent. food was good at lunch but not outstanding (asked for no-onions and it came loaded with onions).
Large place with pretty decent food. Pretty good selection of crafts, but most of your basics that can be had anywhere. Ok selection of locals. Definitely had that frat vibe, younger crowd going. We haven’t been back, too many other options in town which are much better.
pretty cool setting down town, split up a bit in a lobby setting of a hotel, but pretty cool, has some large screen TV/s and the lot,
Beer selection was pretty good, good selection of bottles as well as on tap, waiters did not know too much about beer, but bartenders knew a little more... pretty cool spot.

Stop #4 of Asheville bar tour. This place had the best beer selection of any bar I visited in Asheville. Tons of local beers here but also the best selection of other American micros. Crowd seemed different here than the other bars - more frat guy type of place.
