French Broad beers reflect the interests of each of the three head brewers who’ve run the place. From classic continental ales, through UK-style bitters and porters, to American pales, we’re a work-in-progress that improves with age (just like beer).
Current offerings include the Wee Heavy’er Scotch Ale, 13 Rebels ESB, Gateway Kolsch, Ryehopper Pale, India Pale Ale and Anvil Porter. Rotating seasonals include Koko the Stout, Zepptemberfest and many others. We’re currently buying some playground equipment, and should have a lot of experimental beers later in 2012.
Our tasting room is open from 1-8 p.m., Monday through Saturday, with live music Thursday through Saturday evenings. It’s a great place to try our beers and “grok the vibe” if you can “dig it.”
Established in 1997, French Broad Brewery built a small brewpub in downtown Asheville before relocating to the Biltmore Village area in 2000. (That brew pub later became Green Man Brewery.) French Broad has 22 owners, all small investors who love beer and insist on quality. Whatever beer’s left over after they get theirs is sold to the public.
