One of the best bottle shops in the country. Excellent selection, upscale feel, and reasonable prices. I highly recommend this place.

Had heard a lot about this place prior to visting. It did not disappoint. Had a great selection and was very helpful with pulling other items out of the back. Had a nice local selection including numerous growlers. Will definitely be back next time in Asheville.

At first, Iíll admit I thought it seemed small, but Iím used to more traditional liquor stores, so once I figured out the booze and wine, the size seemed just fine. Thereís a solid selection available, particularly regarding local brewers (everything from Pisgah to Catawba Valley to Duck-Rabbit). The store was well-lit and nicely organized, and though Jason was readily on-hand to aid my shopping, I dare say I know my way around a beer store. A fine selection of beer-related merchandise was located at the front of the establishment (glasses, books, etc.) if thatís your thing. My only criticism would be the cutthroat, highly-limited street parking situation.

Small little beer shop. They had quite a nice selection though. Everything was priced well and the 2 guys that worked there were evry active in answering questions and talking to the customers about beer. They seemed pretty knowledgeable and very friendly. Good service goes along way in this business. I picked up a few other things there, that I didnt find at other places, and they sold singles of everything which was nice. Probably the best store in that area by far.

In order to be great beer store you need two things - selection and service.The selection is a good as Iíve seen in Asheville, and thatís saying something. The service is outstanding and really sets this place apart. The guys were extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to help. The only drawback was the dicey parking situation, but thatís a minor quibble. Outstanding place.

This is a beer store! Didnít count, but I would say itís more like 700 + different beers, with only a handful of macros taking up precious shelf space. Heavy emphasis on Belgians. Great selection of glassware and other beer paraphernalia. Super nice, beer-expert owner and even friendlier staff with the kind of knowledge and helpfulness you typically would only see in a European, family-owned, 200 year-old artisan shop. Everything is available in singles!

Very good selection. A little pricey but if you want it they will probably have it. If they can stay afloat with just the beer they may expand to really be able to stock the hard to get beers. Parking is a pistol so donít just pull into the lot beside the building on a weekday. Park on the street if at all possible.

This is an excellent brew store convenient to downtown Asheville. The store is devoted to beer; no wine or liquor or anything else. They always seem to have at least a few interesting things. They have a nice shelf of glassware, too, as well as a tasting room. The first time I visited, within a week of their opening, the owner poured me some schwarzbier from a minikeg for free. That pretty much won me over. Great place. They deserve your business.

Jason and Julie are truly up and coming beerlebrities. Brusiní Ales doesnít 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 - beerēlanēthroēpyô concern for the welfare and advancement of beer. Go visit them and if youíre 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 Iíve 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.
