Nice place in the middle of downtown. Right around the corner from where we stayed. Good selection of local beers, and a few others. Prices were good, staff was helpful. There were a few pick a six locals, kind of an easy way to try a beer or two. Worth a stop.
In between Aloft and Wicked Weed. Down street from Bruisiní Ales. They tend to get the more sought after bottles and they still had some in stock long after better known beer stores in the area were long sold out. Worth checking out especially since you will likely walk by it going to Wicked Weed.
Visited in July, itís clearly a wine shop with beer as an after thought. They have a decent selection, and worth a try if the first and second tier shops in Asheville are out of your favorite, they might have it. Maybe. The staff didnít seem to be to hip to their beer inventory, so Iím not sure how much help theyíll be. Maybe I asked the wrong guy. Not a destination, but as I said, worth a try if youíre desperate.
Very clean, upscale wine store full of lots Of wine. They are maybe 15% beer and they have what you would find at a typical earth fare or whole foods store. I donít think they see many people under 50 in here but if some guys going to walk in offs th street and buy 3-4 cases of wine, which I saw happen twice within 20 minutes, Iíd wait on them first as well. Beer here is an afterthought, no doubt. The only reason to come here is for what they have they have really cheap prices. Like 8 bucks for Local 1 cheap.

High end wine store. Smallish-medium beer selection but great quality. $4 Asheville 22s. Very friendly staff.
