  • 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...  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 liv...  more »
  • Best brown ale of four different ones tried here in Asheville. Better than Thirsty Monk. No food here, just good beer and decent music. Also rustic atmosphere.  more »

  • Best craft beer and ale in town, local vibe, friendly staff, free live music Thu - Sat New owners, but all positive. They understand what has worked since 2001, and only want to enhance that. Food trucks has been added, outdoor area improved with tasting room improvements planned. Edit: food truck will return in the spring.
  • Been there once and never went back. When I think of what I look for in a business, the quality of what they produce is only part of what I take into consideration; integrity and community-consciousness go a long way. In fact, without the latter, they can be best at the former and they will not have earned my patronage. When a couple from 300 miles away swoops in, buys the property which has also been home to a precious community theater space next door for six years, and then kicks them out six months later so they can expand their newly acquired business, it's hard to say that they meet the important standards of being truly local, being respectful of the local culture, and having a true sense of integrity. "It's just business," they've said. Business without heart.
  • Fine beers. Great staff. Definitely a great stop if you're in the Biltmore Village area.
  • I loved my visit to this brewery!!! Great beer and awesome people .. I will be back every chance I get!!! As for the people giving negative reviews and ratings of one star, they are part of a small group of people that are upset that the brewery is growing and expanding to give their customers more room to enjoy themselves . Please go visit and I am sure you will see what I saw and love every moment you are there!! Below is proof they are trying to mass negative reviews which is such a childish act for people who are suppose to be grown adults! Again go check this place out you won't be sorry you did!!!
  • Went here after visiting "Malt Disney" and it was a perfect change of pace. Had the ESB and it was excellent. Very friendly service.
