Stopped in here for lunch while in town for some concerts. Very good place to check out when in Asheville. This is a very unique restaurant with both a good pizza place in the front and a movie theater in the back.
I stopped by for lunch and saw lots of locals. Fairly busy, but not too bad. Had the lunch buffet and everything was good. Was disappointed they didn't refill things on the salad bar, but they kept the pizza stocked.
Beer selection was good. I tried one of their beers and was impressed. Also got a Catawba which is a harder beer to find in Asheville. Unfortunately, my wife was mad, my daughters were screaming, and I had to drive back to the hotel, or I would have spent more time here. Very cool place to check out!

What can I say about this place. Every time I come into town this is the place I always end up at least once. I love their beer, I have tried a number of them and have suffered the consequences, but you know it was worth it. They has such great beers from the Shiva to the Ninja and I have tried a few others in between. They also have a great selection of the harder stuff if you are so inclined and the pizza is some of the best around. They also have a t.vs everywhere a great milieu in general. I love the poppers too! I could rave on about this place for days but I will end here. Any one who hasn't been, go! They have some of the best in house brews in a town known for great beer!

Great atmosphere! Keep in mind its Asheville so don't expect speedy service. Beers are decent. Pizza is awesome as well as most of the options on the menu. All around its worth trying. The location on Merrimon Ave has $3 movies where you can order food/beer in the theater(=awsome). They also have a kids theater that plays cartoons and has arcade games and picnic tables/booths for when mom and dad needs a beer and kid needs to run around. Has outdoor seating as well to enjoy great Asheville weather. Best pizza in Asheville by far.

Coming here on the way to zip lining, it was tucked behind another business (maybe a fast food chicken chain?) and looked like a farmhouse. Bright blue with 2 silos on the outside, it didn't resemble a brewery until parking (and don't mind the spaceship that looks like it came down and struck the building!). Lets walk in and break this place down by each category.
Walking in, each silo was filled with tables. The one by the bar (where I sat) had a moon on the wall and then a crest of some sort hanging from the ceiling. Very random but cool. The bar looked like a Pipe Works game as it was painted behind the row of tap handles. Whoever was the artist here (for both the brewery AND tap handles/bottles/cans is very talented! Tons of color and detail pop out.
While waiting for my pizza, enjoyed the Red Light IPA and chatted with the bartender. Very friendly and suggested what other breweries I got to on my trip (cool they promote other local breweries).
Their selection was very nice on-tap but had to block out what they had in bottle... Coors, A.B., and Corona were all hanging out on the side of the bar and ruining it for me. One of the servers caught that I was looking at these and replied "it hurts me too".
We enjoyed the Biltmore Pizza and suggest you do the same! Tons of Green Peppers, Banana Peppers, White Onion, and Pepperoni filled this Hand Tossed pizza and enjoyed it with their home-made garlic sauce. MMM!!
With Asheville, NC being the "Beer Capital" of the Nation, I think they should receive the award of Pizza Capital as well! I suggest this place plus many others I've already visited in the area.

This is not just a brewpub, but another one of those quirky places here in Asheville. There's a lot of dedication to movies evident in the decor. There's also a ticket booth where tickets can be purchased for $3 for the daily movie, of which there are two that each show twice (a kids' movie at 1 and 4 pm and another at 7 and 10 pm). The beer is good, as is the food. The pizza is obviously the specialty in terms of food, but the real focus is their beers. When I went last night, there were 8 taps of their own with about 5 guest taps. They also sell a few bottles, but as far as I could tell only 750s of their own stuff, and only a few were available. They do, of course, also fill growlers, and they also sell growlers already filled. Our bartender was very attentive. There are three TVs above the bar, 2 turned to sporting events and one set to a different show, none of which had the volume turned up. I really enjoyed this place; they obviously cared about the beer they brew, the bartender gave very good service, it wasn't too loud, and the food is good. A great place to go in Asheville for a cheap movie (as long as it's one you'd liek to see), good pizza and good beer.

This place was awesome!
The only negative thing I can say was the fact that the bartender in the main room kinda ignored me for the most part. However, the atmosphere here was excellent. It really summed up what Asheville is all about a good time and some good beer. The bar has a single screen movie theater in the back and the night I was there they were showing Pink FLoyd's The Wall which I must admit has influenced my review of the atmosphere. Any bar that A. has a movie theater and B. Plays Pink Floyd's The Wall automatically receives a 5. The service at the theater bar was much better than the main room. The beer there was good but not great. Their Roland's ESB in the best of the bunch. Their food was pretty decent overall. Their pizza was very good but other items seem to be lacking somewhat. The price is very reasonable and it is definitely worth the visit if you are in the area. However, I have noticed that they have started showing more current movies rather than cult classics which is what I like most about the place.

This is a funky little joint a few minutes from downtown. Up front is a pizza joint and bar with a decent selection of their own beers. In the back is a functioning movie theater!
I was a bit disappointed when I was there ... my top two choices (Ninja Porter and Shiva IPA) were both out. I ended up having the ESB (nice, middle of the road amber ale) while the wife had their "ESP" (extra special pale ale) which was basically the ESB with an extra dose of hops.
The pizza was excellent, the onion rings ok (I favor the really thin ones with a little breading ... these were thick with heavy batter). Definitely worth seeking out this place.

I normally dont venture into this area of town so I was a bit unfamiliar with the surroundings so I drove right past this place and had to do a u-turn to get into the parking lot. It snuck up on me for sure. I chose the bar area to the right and bellied up to "That 70's show" and ESPN.
Had the Shiva IPA and it was pretty good. Not too bitter but very well balanced. For food I had a chicken salad and it was really good and fresh. I was expecially hungry so I really devoured every morsel of the salad.
Service was prompt and courteous but the outdoor area seemed to be a bit more busy and some of the patrons were coming inside to order beers.
They had about 11 beers on draft, 8 house beers as well as Guinness, Pisgah, and French Broad. The bottled beer selection was less than stellar with Chimay being about the only craft beer.
The beer was fresh and the food was fresh as well. Growlers were $13.50 ($9.50 for the fill) which is really reasonable. A bit out of the way as this is on the north side, but worth the five minute drive.
