This is THE beer store! Incredible selection. . . these guys bring in anything worth having that they can get their hands on (and let me tell ya, they get their hands on the good stuff)! That being said, I have been to some other really amazing beer stores as far as beer selection/availability, but they pale in comparison to Bruisin’ Ales! The people is what makes this store really stand out. Jason and Julie are so helpful and friendly, and they will go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable, steer you in the right direction, or simply get you beer. Chris is the other beer guy at the store, and it would be extremely difficult to find someone as knowledgeable, passionate, and helpful as he is! They keep the store at perfect beer storage temperature, lights off in the cooler, and special lighting throughout the store to keep light exposure to a minimum. These are just a few of the reasons I call Bruisin’ Ales THE beer store!

Jason and Julie are truly up and coming beerlebrities. Brusin’ Ales doesn’t waste any space for wine or liquor. The lighting and temp are maintained for perfect storage in their beautiful, classy, clean, and homey downtown store. They know, respect, and love good Beer. (especially Belgians) They are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and in my opinion the Best beer store in the Southeast. They even invented the word on their shirt - beer•lan•thro•py™ concern for the welfare and advancement of beer. Go visit them and if you’re in the area they definitely are worth being your only stop for beer. Their selection of merchandise (T-shirts, glasses, and books) is among the best I’ve ever seen. Furthermore, they allow every 6 pack to be broken up so you can try many more beers. No Where else in Asheville has this. People are already coming from all over to get beers from a store that knows to keep their lights in the store low and in the coolers off ( to show respect for the reactions that can occur when too much light interacts with hop compounds in the bottle.

I visited today (a Saturday) and was very pleased. This place was a true beer store. They sell nothing but beer. And lots of good beer at that. They have a huge variety of imports, American craft, and a good selection of locals. Everything is divided appropriately and you can buy six packs or singles. They tossed in a glass since I bought so much. So now I’ve got another tulip glass to add to the collection. I picked up a Cantillon, Fantome, Pisgah, Struise, Great Divide, and so on. There were some growlers for sale as well. They answered all my questions and were very knowledgeable. Great selection, great service, prices were in line with other stores, and I went home happy. A+

Wow. A pleasure to shop at. Not only do they carry the regular lineup of some of the best breweries the east coast has to offer but they have some one offs as well like Brooklyn 1 and DFH Red and White. I love giving places like this my business. Stop by, chat with the owners and pick up some incredible beers.

This place is awesome. An amazing selection of beer at reasonable prices. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable. The store also has a great selection of glasswear and other breweriana. A very solid beer store, one of the best.
