I am heading to Asheville in the coming week and was looking for a good brewpub that is vegan/vegetarian friendly? Would welcome everyone's top recommendations.

    Laughing Seed is an awesome vegetarian restaurant (even my meat-loving husband likes it) with a nice patio that serves beer from Green Man Brewing (linked somewhat with the very popular Jack of the Wood which is located downstairs from Laughing Seed). Barley's has a huge beer selection and decent (not great) pizza and a large menu with other veg options(veggie burger, veggie melt, hummus app). Live music often in the evenings and a lively atmosphere. Biergarden has a huge beer selection and passable bar food with salad and some veg options. Mellow Mushroom is a regional chain but it has a good beer selection including many local brews, not to mention a great patio, good pizza, and tons of vegan/veg sandwich offerings. Of all of these, the food is best at Laughing Seed, but you'll find more beer at the others.

      Most restaurants in Asheville, brewpubs included, are veg-friendly. I'd go to the Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co. (aka "Brew-n-View"). The overall quality of the beer is excellent, and you won't get it outside of Asheville (festivals notwithstanding). I don't know off-hand if they have anything vegan on the menu, but you can always ask. Like I said, a lot of places are conscious of veg* diets. If vegan dishes are important, follow the above advice about Laughing Seed. Its not my favorite but it would make a vegan very happy. Then you can go to Jack of the Wood afterwards.

        Jack of the Wood is Vegan Friendly and the beer is good!
