LOVE these guys!! HUGE store, huge bar and patio. The best selection and best service in Asheville period. All the local breweries, hard to find imports, Trappist Ales, sours, barrel aged beers and a whole wall of glasses for sale. 10 tap lines with rotating local, domestic and import craft beer, cask system. Free parking in a HUGE lot next to the building. They usually have things in the cellar as well, if you are willing to talk to them. Even some Russian River.......!

Theeeeeeeeee Appalachian Vintner. Where to begin? Perhaps with the completely awesome, knowledgable staff, who not only are eager to sit down and talk at length about beer and wine, but are also just great people in general, and make visiting the Vintner a great experience. Perhaps with the wine selection! They have a great selection of Wines from all over the world, and if you donít know what youíre looking for, you can give Geoff or Charles a rough idea of what you like and theyíll have ideas. Perhaps with the BEER selection. Tons of microbrews, a couple great locals on tap, and a cooler with a wide selection of local growlers (they give discounts when you bring back old growlers, too. #powertip). Or maybe we should start with the atmosphere in there. Itís cozy and welcoming. You can hang out at the bar or sit at a table and relax with a beer or some wine. They have free wine tastings on Saturdays and Wednesday evenings. Yep, you read that right. Theyíre free! Just for being you. So go on in and sample some f**king wines. I guess I donít know WHERE to begin.. but I DO know where YOU should begin. You should begin by "hopping" in your car and driving dangerously and erratically (drink responsibly) to the Appalachian Vintner. I canít believe you havenít been there yet.

These guys do an amazing job! Their selection is phenomenal and they are knowledgeable about the products that they sell. They have recently added a ton of stuff to their inventory, so if youíre a fan of hard to find beers, give them a chance. Also, their stuff is fresh. I donít know how they do it, but they keep a huge inventory that is all ready to drink. On top of that, they have beers on tap that you can enjoy while you wander around the store or out on their back patio. Great place!

Appalachian vintner has fantastic selections on beer and wine. They have an awesome staff that are very helpful and knowledgable about all the product. They also have ten beers on tap which makes it more fun to shop for your goodies. It is in a great location with a lot of parking and I really really recommend this store to everyone.

The Appalachian Vintner is terrific. The owners are knowledgeable, friendly and reliable. I love these guys, and I love the place. It one of the most comfortable atmospheres I have ever experienced. There is excitement in the air each time I visit. I cannot say enough good things about this shop. I highly recommend that folks stop in the AV if visiting Asheville.

They always seem to have the beers and wines youíre looking for. And if they donít have it, they go find it. Nice to walk around the store and check everything out. Always have great beers on tap to enjoy.

Where to start here. These guys (Chuck & Jeff) are super service oriented people. Itís kind of like visiting your good pals beer store...everytime. The selection is the best in Asheville hands down, with the prices blowing the doors off the closest competitor. Iíve scored some real west coast gold here too: Lost Abbey, Russian River etc. unfortunately due to trophy hunters looking for another notch in their belt, these beers are only available to regulars now. Totally understandable IMO you have to show support to get beers theyíve gone WAY out of their way for. The local brew selection is the best in town too with a large growler selection from Pisgah, Nantahala, Catawba and Green Man. Website is usually not completely up to date with new arrivals so their ratebeer site usually is better, but a phone call has worked too. 20 tap lines rotating local/import sours, barrel aged beers and a cask pump, I had the Foothills Hoppyum IPA primed with honey last time, holy mother. They now have growlers!! NEVER seen a draft beer here that was not at least some what rare. Beautiful space, clean glassware, filtered water, large bar with seating for 25+ with tables and two large comfy couches. Beer area is in the back, well lit and spacious with shopping carts in the front when you walk in. Patio outside for smokers, fresh air. Wine selection is also huge if you are into that and dogs are welcome. Parking lot beside the store is massive, free and clean and there are also at least six other lots around the store that you can park at for free so getting in and out is a breeze. Best in Asheville for sure. If you visit take your time and talk to the owners they are super helpful and usually have something lying around that is not easily seen. If you are looking for specifics give them a call they will usually order beers that are not in stock.
