The staff doesn't seem like they want customers. Dull, dated decor, and unfriendly staff was a disappointment. Unfortunate.

This brewery is one of my favorites. The staff is very friendly. There are so many good beer varieties that making the choice is difficult. They do 9ffer a great beer sampler. Love the seating outside always has a lovely clientele to hang out with.

Good time trying beer here while in the area. Neat atmosphere and experience. They have board games on hand and you are in the valley of mountains which is neat. Beer was not bad. Recommend for sure! Not tons of outside seating, would be cool to see more of the parking lot or side building area tuned into more seating!

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.
