Nice clean looking place. Beers were well organized. The selection was top tier, although I’d seen everything at other top NC stores as well. Good growler list. Fun place to get bottles.

READ: Anything in the 80’s is not a good score! They maybe a "passing" grade but they are no where near what this place deserves. Where to start here. These guys (Chuck & Jeff) are super service oriented people. It’s kind of like visiting your good pals beer store...everytime. The selection is the best in Asheville hands down, with the prices blowing the doors off the ALL competitors. I’ve scored some real west coast gold here too: Lost Abbey, Russian River etc. unfortunately due to trophy hunters looking for another notch in their belt, these beers are only available to regulars now. Totally understandable IMO you have to show support to get beers they’ve gone WAY out of their way for. The local brew selection is the best in town too with a large growler selection from Pisgah, Nantahala, Catawba and Green Man. Website is usually not completely up to date with new arrivals so their ratebeer site usually is better, but a phone call has worked too. 20 tap lines rotating local/import sours, barrel aged beers and a cask pump, I had the Foothills Hoppyum IPA primed with honey last time, holy mother. They now have growlers!! NEVER seen a draft beer here that was not at least some what rare. Beautiful space, clean glassware, filtered water, large bar with seating for 25+ with tables and two large comfy couches. Beer area is in the back, well lit and spacious with shopping carts in the front when you walk in. Patio outside for smokers, fresh air. Wine selection is also huge if you are into that and dogs are welcome. Parking lot beside the store is massive, free and clean and there are also at least six other lots around the store that you can park at for free so getting in and out is a breeze. Best in Asheville for sure. If you visit take your time and talk to the owners they are super helpful and usually have something lying around that is not easily seen. If you are looking for specifics give them a call they will usually order beers that are not in stock.

Awesome bottle shop. Stopped in right after they opened one morning, spoke with the owner for a while, he help point out some of the local beers and other items that were a little harder to find. Was a little too early to try some of their taps, he said to come back later, but it just didn’t work out. Was able to pick up quite a few interesting items to share with the folks back home. Well worth a stop whe you are in the area.

Nice store in Asheville that has a bunch of fun taps in addition to a ton of bottles. THey had some Allagash Midnight Brett during my visit, which was kind of cool. Some of the bottles were a little too dusty and not much is refrigerated. Still a pretty cool store.

Excellent selection of regionals and a very good selection of both American and import craft brews, Growler fills, small tasting area and knowledgeable and helpful staff. Most everything is available in singles. Prices are a bit high, but Asheville has become such a tourist town and this is right near Biltmore Village, so they’re not unreasonable for the area.

Awesome beer store in Asheville for not only NC beer but great gems across the country. Huge selection of NC beers, lots of rarities from Pisgah and Wicked Weed. They offer some one off six pack bottles but not a ton or mix a six, so not a huge tickers spot. 20 drafts to growler only but they give you tastes if you ask. Service was nice and helpful and most importantly not pushy and liked to talk beer. Clean new feel to the place. I’d be here all the time if close. Great spot.

A large shop given over to wine at the front, nicely displayed on racks and barrels, and at the back an eclectic range of American and European beers. There’s a small bar and café area where they made us very welcome as part of the RBWG 2014 "meet and greet" evening and offered a choice of four draft beers. A fun experience and well worth visiting. (Visited 6 February 2014).

> Very cool store+tasting bar+bottles available to drink on premise

>> Similar awesome set up to City Beer Store in SF. There’s a front large wine area and a large back beer area. In the center are two tap systems and two bars. Small but interesting selection of local specialties including some rare offerings like Pisgah Chocolatized Vortex II. Some beers are fridged but for the most part they are out warm. Nicely organized at least by brewery and by region. Found some interesting things like Basque Sidra, La Rulles Estivale, no De La Senne was strange, Pisgah BA Vortex II (small bottle release). 900 bottles doesn’t seem too far off- the selection is insane. Staff was friendly. Glassware selection was extensive. Loved this place.

Medium sized beer and wine store. Really nice selection of single beers and bombers. In addition, they have around 16 taps available, with a pretty nice selection of good local, regional, and foreign beers. Definite place to check out.

This is a solid beer and wine store in Asheville, complete with a tap station. There is a large selection of beer, local, regional, and imports, all at pretty reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and quite knowledgeable about the beer.
