This is one stop on the Amazing Pub Cycle tour. The Pub was very crowded but the bartenders were quick. This is another of the many cool places to hang out in Asheville.

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

We were very surprised to see that something that is part of Biltmore Village is not only scary looking, but pretty much was useless to us. We walked out because when we walked in, the person at the bar never acknowledged us. There was no...More

Another brewery stop on our Asheville trip. This was a very small place with mostly locals. Pretty neat place though but only about 4 or 5 brews on tap. Mostly inside seating and no food available that I saw. We would go back again though.

I'm not at all into the craft beer fad, but a friend told me that the music duo, Charming Disaster would be appearing so off I went. The place is very laid back. Beer and water only and a very friendly barmaid. Nice crowd. Dogs...More

We are big craft beer fans and have been to most breweries in and around Asheville. Both large and small. French Broad appears to be small, at least from the size of their taproom. Their vats in the back look substantial. So, maybe most of...More

If you didn't know where this brewery is located it would be hard to find. It is a cozy bar tucked away off Fairview Rd. They can't seat many people but there is seating inside and outside. If you want to go to a quiet...More

The French Broad taproom isn't much to write home about. It's a small part of the working brewery that also features a stage for music. But, mostly, I don't visit taprooms for their amenities. I go for the beer. And the beer at French Broad...More

If you're in Asheville, don't miss this brewing gem. Fresh beer, fast service, no frills but worth while. Mondays mean $3 drafts (versus $4) which just makes the brews flow better!!
