  13 Rebels ESB Ale
Copper colored British style pale ale with a palette of biscuity malt, dark fruit notes, and a BIG hoppy finish. Perfectly balanced.
  Flanders Style Abbey Ale
Delicious smooth beer with a complex palette and bouquet of apples and pears. Ask about availability. Review from the Citizen Times:"Since Jonas Rembert opened French Broad River Brewing back in 2001, he's made a real name by mostly crafting beer styles that no one else in town was trying, especially those with a European flair. His latest, Flanders Style Abbey Ale, is among this finest creations yet, a delightful, brown fruity nectar with hints of apples and pear-like flavors. It was among the best beers served at the recent Brewgrass festival, which offered well over 100 different offerings. Taking it another level, the Flanders becomes extraordinary when blended with a bit of French Broad's stellar Cellar Reserve Lambic, itself one of the most unusual brews in town."
  Gateway Kolsch Style Ale
A slightly sweet and delicately balanced beer. A true Kolsch must be brewed in Cologne, Germany where it originated, this is our interpretation.
  Goldenrod Pilsner Beer
This smooth continental lager has a crisp flavor and spicy hop character with a creamy finish. A true session beer.
  Laurel Country White Belgian
A rare 100wheat beer, this belgian is drier and less sweet than most. It's perfect on a hot summer day.
  Marzen Amber Lager
This copper colored, Oktoberfest style beer, has subtle hop flavor and a soft sweet finish that tastes great any time of year.
  Oktoberfest Amber Lager
A BIGGER, HOPPIER version of our Marzen. Recipe changes yearly.
  Rosebud Porter
This "Harvest" porter is "silky and smooth," as beer connoisseur Tony Kiss says. Lighter than most porters but with the same toasty finish.
  Wee Heavy-er Scotch Style Ale
7 Percent - Stronger than our classic. Malty, toasty, and sweet. This traditional Scotch Lowland ale is one of our most popular brews. Wee Heavy Scotch Style Ale "Our Classic" Gold medal, 2002 World Beer Championships
