We’re happy to announce that French Broad has been purchased by Paul and Sarah Casey of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

French Broad is one of Asheville’s oldest breweries, and the original partners ground concrete, slapped paint, and worried about money for a couple of decades. We’ve seen the wonderful growth in Asheville’s beer scene over the years, and began looking for partners to take the brewery to the next level a while back. It was important to us that we remain a business owned by people, employing people, and making beer for people. We couldn’t be more excited about finding the Caseys, who appreciate what we’ve been up to all these years and want to take our little brewery to a little bigger place.

Look for a lot of changes. Look for a lot to stay the same. And thank you, as always, for your support!
