We went for the 2nd Sunday Pub Gospel Sing, our first experience with the French Broad River Brewery. This is a very laid back place -- seating for 20 maximum, very little in way of snacks, very much a feel of a throwback to the 60s, bar area right next to the brewing tanks. The beer is very good and... More

This is a nice little brewery to visit in Biltmore village after a day spent on the estate. Good selection of drafts and they have free local hummus and chips for snacks.

Stopped here on a brew tour. Loved this small brewery. They are very knowledgable and personable here. We met lots of cool people and tasted 4 delicious beers. Would definitely go back, good beer and they also have bands and evening events sometimes. We heard a band play there another night. Love the breweries in Asheville!

We stopped by on a Friday evening on way to Hot Springs to enjoy some fresh local beer and music. Small place, maybe enough room for 15 people sitting and more standing room. Hot pretzels to go with your beer. I only had 1 beer, which in my opinion was a little flat. Maybe they were at the bottom of... More

French Broad's beer as delicious, the tasting room is fairly small, and the beers are moderately priced.

Small brewery but liked the friendliness of all who were there. They ave some great nightly entertainment on the weekends. We happened to be there when The Moon and You group were performing. Although we only caught the last part of their performance, we enjoyed their musical flavor!

If you like to visit dark hippie places this is the place for you! The tasting room is way overdue for an upgrade. I prefer wine but will certainly drink a good beer. Theirs were a toss up between bitter & hoppy. Still we played Jenga while we had our flights. I think the place could be so much more... More

Went to see a friend sing. A bit tricky finding this place as it's tucked away. Very causal and laid back. Good IPA @ $3.50/glass. Place has a very laid back atmosphere. Kid and dog friendly. From Sweeten Creek Rd., take Fairview Rd. over the creek bridge and railroad tracks then look for it tucked into a small barrio center... More
