Hands down the best bottle shop I have been to in Asheville. Great selection and service, very friendly and knowledgeable. Very much feels like you are walking into a Pier1, but the booze takes you other places instantly. They have plenty of bottles of typically available stuff to Asheville, as well as rare stuff, and a bar with 12 taps you can taste right there. Much better prices than the competitors, and reasonable for what I purchased. Great stop.

Nice little store off a main road. Plenty of great selections from local brewers. Very friendly staff, helpful and knowledgeable. Prices were about average of what I had seen around town.

Interior is HUGE, yet it has a country store feel. Emphasis is on wine, but when you get to the back, itís all beer. Selection is phenomenal - a dedicated beer lover will walk out with a thinner wallet. Service is alert,cwelcoming and helpful. This is a must!

Place rating incorporating the feedback of Mrs. JCB, who visited this place on a recent trip. She raved about the location, selection, and especially the world class service. Fabulous place to stock up on Nantahala, Wicked Weed, Burial, Pisgah, and others, along with a very good selection of domestic and import craft.

Visited while in town for the night on the 4th of July. Iím a big craft beer fan and wanted to stock up for my week long trip to Jekyll Island, GA. I was not disapointed I stopped here to do so! Fairly large place with a clean, appealing, easy to navagate layout and a huge selection of craft beer and wine. Some craft beers on tap, however I was shopping and didnít really look to see how many taps they had or what was being offered on them. Ending up getting a cart and filling it up because I found so many beers I wanted to try. Prices were average on most,(around $8-$10 per 22 oz bomber, $9-$12 per six pack), but great on more than a few, (I found and bought several good bombers for around $4-$6). There were also a small but good selection of singles available for around $2 each. They had numerous local and simi-local offerings, which were great. The guy working, (donít remember his name), was friendly, knowledgeable of the beers they were selling, and very helpful in recommendations. I ended up spending over $100, but could have easily spent double that had I had the money. I didnít realize they closed at 9:30PM. I was there until around 9:45 shopping and not once did the guy working rush me or act like he was annoyed that I was keeping him open. In fact he never mentioned it once. It wasnít until I was looking at their website later that night that I saw the hours. Actually he was talking beer with me and recommending things after they should have been closed. And keep in mind this was the night of 4th of July. Now that is great customer service! Between this place and Wicked Weed, (which were the only two craft beer places I had time to visit), Iím sold and am already planning a beer trip to Asheville next Spring. Canít wait!

Nice clean looking place. Beers were well organized. The selection was top tier, although Iíd seen everything at other top NC stores as well. Good growler list. Fun place to get bottles.

READ: Anything in the 80ís is not a good score! They maybe a "passing" grade but they are no where near what this place deserves. 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 ALL competitors. 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.
