It looks like one of the premiere bottle shops in West Asheville. Itís a nice layout with the store split between craft beer and wine with a fairly large section in the back for homebrew supplies. they also have a couple of coolers of sixers. They have a very small pick six cooler. They have a lot of the selection of Bruisin Ales and Appalachian Vintner which can be good if youíre looking for something thatís sold out at the other stores. The folks who worked there seem liked theyíve put a lot of effort and energy into the store. I think most folks would count themselves lucky to have this kind of bottle shop in their neighborhood.
The beer selection is adequate with a good selection of local brews, imports, and micros. The biggest reasons to go here are they sometimes have beers that have already sold out at Bruisiní Ales and the prices are lower. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Homebrew supplies and instructional classes are available here. Itís a cool little store located in western Asheville.
Visited here in March, 2009. Previous rating deleted accidentally. Located in Western Asheville. Small store with an ample selection of beers, as well as some wine. A couple of coolers but most of the beer is not chilled. Some singles are available. They also sell homebrewing supplies and offer classes. Localed a block away from a good beer bar, which is cool. The person working was very nice and helpful. Worth a stop.
Stopped in here to check out their selection while in town on vacation. Glad I did - good beer selection, and some really helpful people there. I needed the Wifi PW, and they actually went out of their way to make a phone call to get it. Not the best selection, as itís a combo beer/wine shop, but they did tend to focus on some of the less easily findable beers. Glad I came here.
I stopped by here on my way back from Brewgrass looking for an item that had been back ordered at several other shops, but with no luck.
A little bit of wine, a little bit of beer and some homebrewing supplies.
I did find some beers that had sold out at Brusiní Ales at significantly lower prices I might add.
The guy at the register was helpful, eager to order anything not in stock for me, and he appeared to know his brewing. This place may be new, and if it is, it might be worth watching.
Over on the other side of Asheville. It doesnít have quite the selection Bruisin has, but itís pretty good. I managed to find enough to spend a good bit even after going to Bruisin Ales. Seemed to be some homebrewing supplies in the far back, but I was concentrating on the beers. The layout is clean and open and the person working, I assume the owner, was very friendly.
stopped by on a whim today. glad we did. this is more of a beer supply store for home brewers and the wine and beer is just a hobby. but a nice hobby to have. prices are ridiculous and I will not state which ones. but seen a price difference of $2 on a certain and was floored...and its something I would pay $6.99 anytime. you guy rocks. not a vast selection but a good one.
We checked out this bottle/brewing supply store since it was close to our hotel and we wanted some area bottles to take home. Parking is in the back, the storefront isnít much at first. Going in the place is on the small side also. Bottle selection is limited to a few coolers and metal shelves adjacent to a nice selection of brewing supplies. The store attendant was helpful with some recommendations. Overall a nice place, though smaller with limited selection compared to what Iím use to.
A nice little shop on a side of town that has been needing its own bottle store for quite some time. Alex runs the shop, and is quite an accomplished homebrewer in his own right. Finishing as a finalist in the Sam Adams Longshot competition. Part wine store, part beer store and part homebrew supply. This is a concept that I hope really takes off.
