During my recent trip to Asheville, I hooked up with the Asheville Brews Cruise and this was the second stop. The tasting room was basically a corner of the brewery; there is a small bar with a smattering of tables and chairs. Adjacent to the rest room is a cooler from which one can purchase French Broad bombers. I went for the Wee Heavier.

A great brewery with some excellent brews.

I thought I was way too far from any good breweries in Asheville when I found that I was only 3/10 of a mile from this place on BA. Loved the atmosphere, picnic tables and friendly dogs. Had a pretzel while enjoying a 13 Rebels ESB and a Rye Hopper rye pale ale. I would def like to try a wee heavy Scotch ale, have to wait til next time. This is the perfect size brewery in my humble, meaningless opinion. It had a great down homey feel with folks stopping in after work for a brew. Both beers were delicious by the way.

I wanted a sixtel of their Kolsch and was visiting from Alabama. The Kolsch wasn't to be in kegs until 1PM on the day I was leaving which was too late. Wes came to my rescue by taking my keg and having it washed and filled with Kolsch at 10AM the day I was leaving. Great service and nice people!
