We were very surprised to see that something that is part of Biltmore Village is not only scary looking, but pretty much was useless to us. We walked out because when we walked in, the person at the bar never acknowledged us. There was no...More

We were just passing thru so I didn't have time to drink drafts. Tried to grab some bottled or canned brew from some of the local breweries. Was looking for something small scale like this that I can't get at home (Highlands, Greenman, etc. can...More

Another brewery stop on our Asheville trip. This was a very small place with mostly locals. Pretty neat place though but only about 4 or 5 brews on tap. Mostly inside seating and no food available that I saw. We would go back again though.

I'm not at all into the craft beer fad, but a friend told me that the music duo, Charming Disaster would be appearing so off I went. The place is very laid back. Beer and water only and a very friendly barmaid. Nice crowd. Dogs...More

If you didn't know where this brewery is located it would be hard to find. It is a cozy bar tucked away off Fairview Rd. They can't seat many people but there is seating inside and outside. If you want to go to a quiet...More

The French Broad taproom isn't much to write home about. It's a small part of the working brewery that also features a stage for music. But, mostly, I don't visit taprooms for their amenities. I go for the beer. And the beer at French Broad...More

If you're in Asheville, don't miss this brewing gem. Fresh beer, fast service, no frills but worth while. Mondays mean $3 drafts (versus $4) which just makes the brews flow better!!

I live in the heart of Beer City and these guys make some of the best beer in Asheville. The majority of their facility is dedicated to brewing, bottling, etc but there's a small area to sit and enjoy the beer. There's live music there...More

87 degree outside and soooo cool inside the brewery. Excellent beer... kolsh, bitter... The brewery is very convenient if you are visiting Biltmore Estate. I rate this brewery better than many others in Asheville. And, finally, lovely lady behind the bar!
