Located in on an industrial block about a 1/2 mile from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate. Lots of space on the inside. They have equal inventory wine and craft beer. They had fairly strong Belgian and national craft selections. The service was top-notch. Both of the brothers, I forget their name off-hand, have a passion for their field and are happy to assist folks in finding something special. They also have a bar area with four taps. Update 7/2012: the new location is fantastic; more space, more selection, more taps, same great service.

This place has huge, open room with spacious paths between shelves of wine and beer. There is a nice bar at which there are four good taps and some beer literature. I had an hour to kill so enjoying a 2010 Irish Walker and an Olde Hickory Brewerís Reserve helped occupy me. The guys that run this store are super nice, eager to help and knowledgeable. The beer doesnít move as fast as other stores in the are so for things like KBS or Hopslam it would be wise to check here. I was still able to find some fresh quality IPAís so I was
happy. Itís just that Bruisiní Ales has set the bar so high for selection and rotation that I am spoiled when coming to Asheville. But the facts that Appalachain Vintner has a nice bar, prices are a little lower and they have their own parking lot will lure me in again.

Located a bit South of Asheville. Small parking lot. Large, open space inside with wines in front, beers in back, and a center bar with ten taps and a cask option while I was there. One person working who was very helpful, and very friendly. Beer tends to be everywhere, even outside the main beer area, so keep your eyes peeled. Great selection of both foreign, domestic and NC beers. I picked up beers from Epic Brewing, Stillwater, Olde Hickory and I think Iím forgetting one. A few rarities. The tap selection was top notch, though they canít fill growlers due to state law. Dumb. Prices are a touch high. Overall, this is a great beer store and it rivals Bruisin Ales.

Though Iíve been to Asheville three times now, this was the first chance Iíd had to find this place. A bit off the main drag, but easy enough to get to if you know where itís at. Visited on a Friday afternoon about 4:30 and I was the only one there. The gentleman working that afternoon was extremely helpful in pointing out specials, new arrivals, etc. Nice selection of imports, national micros, and good amount of NC beers. A few beers on tap, and I had one while I picked up some mixed sixers and a few bombers for the road. Worth a stop if youíre in town.

This is the best beer store in Asheville, hands down. The two brothers who own it are incredible knowledgeable and friendly, and they have a tap selection so you can have one (or two) whole you look around. And they have a good wine selection too. Great bottle shop!

Stopped by here because it was close to where I was staying and Bruisiní was closed on Monday. Very cool place! Nice selection, plus they carry wine. 10 taps or so, well chosen. The staff was friendly and made a few suggestions, but were not overbearing. Nice place, and I may have to put it on my regular rotation...

Another converted warehouse turned store in Asheville. The selection is quite good especially as the beer continues to take over more floorspace. Both brothers are very into beer and were able to give me some good suggestions about what I should try. The prices are slightly better or equal to bruisin, and much better than what I see in NoVA. A must visit along with Bruisin when youíre in Asheville.
Update 7/9/2012 - bumped the numbers up now that Iíve visited them in their new location. They are deffinately giving Bruisin Ales a run for their money. The new space is awesome with the 10 taps on the wall and the more consolidated beer space. Iím excited to see what they do in the months ahead!

I found this place to be a worthwhile stop. A little bit off the main drag, but not overly so, with plenty of space for the wine and beer that they carry. It used to be a dance club the girl working there told me. She gladly checked in the back for what I was looking for and I got a 15% discount for a mixed case purchase of bombers that were already priced about $.50 less than what was over at another other leading Asheville beer store. Good selection of sixes, singles and some in the fridge. Virtually no windows to damage the goods and what florescent lights were there, were high over head near the ceiling some 25 feet above the floor. Worth checking out.

Pretty nondescript storefront. Wine in the front, beer in the back, with a bar area in the middle. The beer selection is excellent. Lots of Belgians, wide selection of local brews, and even a good spread of ciders. The workers are friendly, obviously love the beer, and are very helpful. The prices are a bit steep. Overall, this is a great store.
