Located in downtown Asheville, near several brewpubs, restaurants, etc. Selection is good, with several regionals and some hard to get beers. Those hard to get were (as well as most of their stock) were pricey. For convenience, this place isnít bad but Iíd go to Appalachian first any other time.

Small place but good selection. I was on a mission to score one beer and one beer only here... so I had tunnel vision (ghostface killah, which they had!) but they have a nice local, nation and Euro selection. Staff was friendly and the place was clean. No complaints here

I have been going here for years. I remember long ago, they held some Black Albert for me when I said Iíd be in NC in a few weeks. I now stop in a few times a year on my way to Flat Rock. For such a small space, the selection is always really good and varied. Asheville gets very good distribution. Spend $100 and they throw in a glass.

Nice place, but smaller than I expected. Wooden shelving displays the beers nicely. They seem to focus on local beers and Belgian beers. I spot a few beers from the northeast, but that is about it. Some items in a cooler if you want to take home something cold. I asked for advice regarding good local stuff and the employee immediately pointed out the most expensive specialty items in the store. In fairness he also showed me some local standbys that were more reasonably priced. Certainly worth a visit - especially if you want to grab a sample of the local product like I did.

Amazing beer store. Itís like a specialty boutique for premium craft beer. They donít sell wine, nor liquor, nor do they sell the crap u see on tv. The very best beer store Iíve ever seen.

World class service and selection. Beer tastings every other Thursday. Whatís not to love? This could very well be beer heaven. Jay and Julieís passion and dedication to American, Belgian and world craft beer are infectious and Iím grateful to live in a city that houses this fantastic establishment.

Small place, but the beers were just crammed in. Loads of cool imports and a solid selection of North Carolina, regional, and national micros. I bought a case worth of beer, and they gave me a free pint glass. I would consider it to be one of the better bottle shops Iíve visited, and a must go on the way out of town.

Small place with a hippie/hipster vibe when you walk in. Service was nice, but he was in a rush to leave (we got there right at 4pm, the closing time on a sunday). Selection was pretty solid; I was impressed because of the stuff we canít get down in Florida, but Iím sure if I was local nothing would blow me away. Pre-filled growlers from a couple breweries is a cool idea, but they arenít the only ones in town doing that. Prices are a little higher than some other places in town, but not too terribly outrageous. Pretty solid bottle shop overall.

Good store, but a little over rated. Very small and cramped inside. Lots of local southern beers and good selection of Belgians. A few more rare beers like Nebraska and Cascade. Overall a good store but it didnít blow me away like I thought it might.

I was in Asheville for 4 days and went to Bruisiní Ales twice. The first trip their selection was obviously depleted, but the next trip they had just got a huge shipment in and they hadnít even got it on the shelves yet. Needless to say I enjoyed my second trip quite a bit more as far as choices go. One negative is that this place is easily $1 to $3 more per bomber or six pack then most other places we stopped in North Carolina. Maybe it has to do with the real estate though. The owners were great and gave us a free pour of a hard to get (and delicious) beer they werenít even advertising as tapped yet, so that was nice!
