I stopped in here as I was leaving the area early in the morning and it was the only place open. Decent selection of locals. Not as extensive as Brusiní Ales or Appalachian Vintner, but worth a stop just the same.

Stopped here for some breakfast grub before going hiking. Didnít by any beer, but looked at the selection which was just as nice and large as any Whole Foods. If you are in town and can only get here to buy some bottles you will not be dissapointed.

This feels like markets did when I gre up in the 50ís-60ís. No they donít have tons of beer, but they do have a fantastic selection of North Carolina beers, many available as single bottles. If you want the local stuff, this is the place to go.--- February 2014 - I stopped by again yesterday, found a lot to take with me (canít get it in Cincy), and found a really friendly staff. As I was checking out, I commented that I was impressed with how carefully she was packing my singles, and she replied "We take our beer seriously here." Need I say more?

Cramped! Very lived in whole foods in disguise. Had some national crafts that hadnít heard of and a few locals that I havenít seen elsewhere.

Just a grocery store that has a decent bottle selection with some growlers brought in fresh weekly. Okay, but Iíd only go on days the growlers come in or if I was already shopping there, as there are plenty of other options in the city.

Run of the mill Whole Foods selection. Nothing really special to be found, but they do have some really good sales.

This is one of the nicer beer selections Iíve seen at a Whole Foods. Itís basically a chain of organic, health food grocery stores. Of course, this being Asheville, you donít see a lot of iconography announcing the store as a Whole Foods and the building somehow blends into the environment. Itís not far from downtown Asheville. As others have noted the parking sucks so get there early. They have a lot of bombers and a few seasonal locals I havenít seen at the other local bottle shops. They had a guy buzzing around the beer section but he didnít seem super approachable. Still they have a fantastic selection and the prices, even by Asheville standards, are really good.

Big chic grocery store atmosphere (which seems like an oxymoron until you step in). Great beer selections tucked in the back, especially local fare. Was a little crowded with narrow isles making it hard to stand and stare at the product. Great pricing on their diverse selection. Service was typical of a big grocery store: hit and miss (but friendly when found).
