Archetype Brewing - Asheville, NC
In our experience, the only thing cooler than beer is the people who make it, and we recently met some awesome folks here in Asheville who do just that. Archetype Brewing is the newest neighborhood brewery in lovely West Asheville that has recently opened its doors. Their grand opening is soon, but the beer is already flowing.
The interior at Archetype is very modern with an industrial feel, showcasing the shiny brew equipment to the right of the bar. Plenty of high-top tables fill the space and a nice little sitting area with couches leads you to a small outdoor area in the back. There is also plenty of deck space as you walk in for our lovely summer days in the mountains.
They are currently pouring 4 of their own beers and a few guest taps as they await their grand opening at the end of July, and naturally, we tried all 4. They had a Dry Stout, Belgian Blonde, The Commoner (Belgian Pale) and a Session IPA.
The beers were great and I can only expect that they get better as they settle into the system and really start messing around with the recipes. The people who man the ship are great, and the vibe is awesome. Another great addition to the Asheville beer scene and we wish them the best of luck. Definitely go check them out if you are in the area and tell them West Ashe sent you!
