Westville Pub, Asheville, N

After learning that Asheville, NC is a mecca for craft brewers, we decided that on our next trip through Asheville, we would stop and get acquainted with some of their microbreweries.  There are nine microbreweries here, so we have our work cut out for us.

For our first evening, we decided to go to the Westville Pub, since they feature beers from North Carolina breweries, and we needed dinner.

Besides the local beers, the pub features a billiards room and live music most evenings.  We visited on Tuesday evening, when the live music was a blues jam.  We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the music.  

For dinner we tried the Caesar salad with blackened chicken, and a couple of buffalo sliders, which came with fries.  The sliders were excellent, as was the chicken; the salad wasn’t as good as some Caesar salads we’ve had, but it was still decent.  We tried four local beers:  Pisgah Stout, Wedge Iron Rail IPA, Catawba Coconut Porter (not local to Asheville), and French Broad Wee Heavy.  We really enjoyed all but the Coconut Porter, which was interesting, but not great.

The pub also has a back patio which is nice for those who smoke.  We found the customers and staff to be friendly and we experienced excellent service.  We had a great time and would enjoy going back again.  The bar also serves liquor and wine, plus a nice selection of draught and bottled beer that are not local.

So you can get a taste of the music, we have included a short video.  As you can see, many of the customers enjoy dancing to the music.

We would definitely choose to come back to the Westville Pub when we are in town.  It is a very enjoyable place to visit.

They have a website at http://www.westvillepub.com/ which covers anything you might want to know about them.  And there are more photos in this album.
