Franklin Hop Spot in Franklin, NC is our most rural location and the best beer store west of Asheville. This downtown haunt, beloved by an intersection of old timers and newcomers from across the “western-western”area of the state, fills a crucial role in providing lifeblood to the enthusiast beer drinker. Beers typically unseen west of Asheville are picked up from the brewery directly meaning that most of the beer you will see here are unavailable anywhere else within an hour’s drive. Our buyer takes a trip up the mountain weekly in order to ensure the coolers are filled with the hottest new releases. This is the top craft beer spot along the Appalachian Trail and a favorite after hike pastime is loading up on some top shelf brews and drinking them at (BYOB) Cafe Rel, located inside our store. Cafe Rel is undisputably known as the best restaurant in town and sports high end French Cuisine at an affordable rate, with almost every entree under 20USD.
