Dear Patrons,

You might have seen me once at Jack of the Wood in an ole European house because that’s what it feels like there in Asheville, North Carolina at the best pub in town. A Celtic style pub that still has the words “public house” scribed on the outside entrance, Jack of the Wood is named after a 2nd century A.D. deity who symbolizes nature and fertility, among other things. And everyone knows there is truly nothing like the nature in Asheville, and sitting at the black walnut bar with your custom Green Man Ale brewed just up the street or your Guiness Stout and a plate of fish and chips, a definite nature vibe emanates from the bones of this place. Besides, it’s got some of the best fiddling and music around sometimes! The pub is in the heart of downtown Asheville situated right in the Blue Ridge Mountains. So get some food, throw some darts, sit at the coolest big bar ever (it curves around the joint) and check out the long list of brews (local and others). Good conversation is hard to come by, but never at Jack of the Wood. So get lost in the woods! Be my guest. Buy a t-shirt also. They have the coolest around.
