Greenman brewing is also downtown I think. Bruisin' Ales is a must if you want to bring some good brews back home with you.
If you're there on a Friday, stop by Highland Brewery at 4:30 or 5 for a tour, then to lounge around at the brewery and listen to some live music and eat some catered food.

Asheville Brewing Company is also there, although I've never been. Try their "Ryehopper" if you can find it on draft anywhere. Excellent.

Also Friday I think there is a free concert in the streets downtown. It's called Downtown After 5.

This is a short list to get you a taste of what Asheville has to offer.

Barley's Taproom
Thirsty Monk
Wedge
Jack of the Wood
Bier Garden

Here is a link to the Asheville tourism page on the subject: http://www.exploreasheville.com/wher...ies/index.aspx

As previously mentioned, Highland is a good place to do a tour. They, like most of the local breweries, are very involved in the community. Highland does a lot of brewing of many local award winning homebrewers work.

Also, if you're just looking to pick up a few beers to take back to the room with you and you feel like chatting homebrewing go visit Alex Buerckholtz at Hops & Vines (http://www.hopsandvines.net/) in west Asheville. In my opinion the best LHBS in Asheville. Tell him Chad sent ya. I miss that place now that I have moved to Atlanta.

Slightly Off Topic, but has anyone had anything from Asheville Brewing Co? A friend of mine brought me a couple of their beers that he got from some friend of a friend of a friend. I tried their Porter and APA. I thought the APA was terrible, and the Porter was so so. However, like I said, it traveled through a number of hands before I got it, so I don't know how old it was or how well it was handled and stored. Anyone have a first hand experience they can share?

They have never been overly impressive in my opinion.

Yeah it's a nice beer. Good rye spicy flavor but not as hoppy as one may expect.
