Beer: I do love the beers that this brewery produces. 13 Rebels ESB is my favorite.
Beertenders: The beertenders are super friendly and happy to offer suggestions.

Thank you for stopping by and appreciate your review of our beers. We are aware of our limited seating capacity and are working on new tap room space. Please come back and visit us in January when our new space is functioning.
This is one of my favorite spots, their beers are solid and the newly added non-beer options are great!! The NA sodas are made by one of brewers and are soooooo good. It’s the place where everyone knows my name and I love it.

We visited the French Broad River Brewery as part of our Asheville Brews Cruise. I give it a four-star rating not for the brewery experience but for the beers we tasted. This is the only brewery of four where we actually purchased six-packs of their...More
Decent tasting beer does not compensate for the pushing out of active, local art scenes. There are about fifty breweries in Asheville already who are *actually* local, not out-of-towners coming in and out placing artists, whose beer is as good and probably better. I urge...More
We wanted to visit French Broad while in town. It was a little hard to find but we found it. What a neat little place! I was excited to get the Rye Hopper Ale and we got a growler to go. There was live music....More
Arrived in town and wanted some local "flavor" and saw there was a duo called the Casmonautz playing at FBRB. First impressions when walking in is this is a serious brewers hobby with a few tables for friends to hang out. That said, it works...More
We were brewery hopping and heard about this place so we stopped in for a pint. The place is small but since the weather was nice we sat outside and chatted up with some locals. I'm sure we'll be back because the beer was good,...More
