Large, well-organized shop just a few minutes walk from the center of town. Stopped in for RBWG 2014, and staff offered a flight of interesting beers and some swag. Interesting local & regional selection, and even some bottles I hadn’t seen from Italy and Belgium. A worthwhile stop.

Large bottle selection, large import selection. Almost all of it out in the light and at room temperature. Even green glass bottles. Got lucky with a La Rulles Estivale in decent shape, even with the green glass. As happy as I was about that, I was just as unhappy about burning $12 on a Dupont La Bière de Beloeil which was light struck and sour.

A large shop given over to wine at the front, nicely displayed on racks and barrels, and at the back an eclectic range of American and European beers. There’s a small bar and café area where they made us very welcome as part of the RBWG 2014 "meet and greet" evening and offered a choice of four draft beers. A fun experience and well worth visiting. (Visited 6 February 2014).

A huge shop, but what makes this place special is the the center bar with a ton of taps. Drinking and buying beer, what could be better? I know, very rare and exclusive beers. A definite place to go, its just a bit out of the way.

This is a solid beer and wine store in Asheville, complete with a tap station. There is a large selection of beer, local, regional, and imports, all at pretty reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and quite knowledgeable about the beer.

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.

> Very cool store+tasting bar+bottles available to drink on premise

>> Similar awesome set up to City Beer Store in SF. There’s a front large wine area and a large back beer area. In the center are two tap systems and two bars. Small but interesting selection of local specialties including some rare offerings like Pisgah Chocolatized Vortex II. Some beers are fridged but for the most part they are out warm. Nicely organized at least by brewery and by region. Found some interesting things like Basque Sidra, La Rulles Estivale, no De La Senne was strange, Pisgah BA Vortex II (small bottle release). 900 bottles doesn’t seem too far off- the selection is insane. Staff was friendly. Glassware selection was extensive. Loved this place.

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 Brewer’s Reserve helped occupy me. The guys that run this store are super nice, eager to help and knowledgeable. The beer doesn’t 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 IPA’s so I was happy. It’s just that Bruisin’ 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 I’m forgetting one. A few rarities. The tap selection was top notch, though they can’t fill growlers due to state law. Dumb. Prices are a touch high. Overall, this is a great beer store and it rivals Bruisin Ales.
