I donít have enough good things to say about this place. Moving from Durham, NC to the Asheville area, I had to say goodbye to Samís Quick Stop and feared that there would be nowhere to fill its shoes not so! BA not only fills Samís shoes but leaves them far behind in the dust. It is, in a word, Mecca for beer lovers. BA specializes in high-gravities and hard-to-find imports theyíre often the ONLY place in the area (wide-radius area at that) to offer particular labels or brews. Furthermore, they have bi-monthly tastings, often free. Jason and Jule (the proprietors) are extremely knowledgeable you have the assurance that they personally know what theyíre selling on their shelves, and theyíre proud of it. Prices can sometimes be slightly high, but I donít mind: 1) itís a local-owned business that Iím more than happy to support. 2) Sometimes itís worth paying a premium for the good and hard-to-find stuff. This place is a treasure.

Okay so I have gone back several times since my original rating and what seemed cramped now seems quaint. I love this place and everytime I am in (or going through) Ashville I make a point of stopping.

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.
