We were downtown and found this place. Cool dive bar with a friendly staff. We would return the next time were here in town.

They have their own craft beer as well as a huge selection of other craft beers on tap. Two levels give you access to over 50 beers on tap. I tried one of their house beers but was lacking flavor. If you want variety, this is one place to go however.

My husband loves Belgium beer, so this was a must go. We went to the downstairs part. I am not a beer drinker, but the bartender kept giving me beer to try until he found one I loved. He was great! My husband ordered the Buffalo chicken tacos and thoroughly enjoyed them. We had a good experience.

The service was slow, but my favorite beer of our trip was here. It was the Thirsty Monk coconut porter, and I believe it was called "Coconorm". Yum!

We were there early, so the upstairs was not opened yet, but the bartender let me order a beer served there. Loved the choice of beers , i prefer Porter type beers and really enjoyed what we had. Would highly recommend a stop here !

Avocado tacos and urban orchard hard cider were excellent. The veggie wrap and fries were ok. Lots of beers to choose from.

I love Asheville! I love the people, I love the culture, I love the food, I love the bars! I think this place is ok. I mean I wasn't overly thrilled with it, the staff could have cared less anyone was there except for one gentleman who seemed to be the only person who loved their job. The beer was... More

Excellent beer, excellent food, great atmosphere! We managed to get two bar seats on a Saturday afternoon...started to get a little warm inside so they opened up the front area which let some nice cool air in. Bartender was well versed in the beer types. Kitchen guy was quick and food was great....tried tacos...very yummy!
