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!

Great downtown location. Probably rough if you had to drive there though. Smaller than I expected, but they packed a lot in, in a very organized way. Thought the prices were a bit on the high side. The staff was pretty helpful, but was in and out rather quickly. A must stop if downtown, but Vintner was better all around.

A good beer store with a decent selection. They had refrigerated growlers from local breweries. A large selection of Belgians as well. But other than that, I donít really get all of the hype. The parking sucks, but you honestly canít blame them for that. However, you can fault them for high prices on several selections and a staff that seems to either ignore you or talk down to you. And I think the 800+ bottles is being generous considering the idea that some members on this site probably have larger cellars than this entire building. With all that said, itís still a better than average beer store regardless of the somewhat inflated ratings. If I were ever nearby again, I wouldnít pass up an opportunity to stop in, but I donít think I would make a special trip out of my way to revisit.
