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.

This place is hippie central, itís almost to a comical level. The beer selection is really impressive though. There are plenty of singles, Belgians, local brews, etc. The price is reasonable, especially for the NC/TN area. Itís also nice that I can buy beer here later than 7 pm which is when the beer stores downtown close.

A standard all natural grocery store. The employees are nice, but I didnít see any in the beer/wine section and I had no cause to ask questions. Prices are decent. The parking lot is from some inner circle of hell. Long selection of chilled beers. Some foreign, lots of American and a ton of local beer. Also some nonchilled selections. Stop here before you hit Bruisiní Ales, because the prices are a bit better and there will be a good bit of local stuff here that is at Bruisin. But if you go to one place, go to Bruisin.

Stopped here for some dinner items rather than dining out- nice beer selection but doesnít beat Bruisiní Ales. Good food selection - got that hippy co-op vibe that is common in others Iíve visited in Boise & Burlington. Friendly service, prices above average but good stuff. Took our food to French Broad River park for a picnic.

Another whole foods. Decent selection but not as extensive as Florida.

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.

Pretty good co-op for those interested, have decent prices and some interesting selections. As for the beer, almost everything is in sixers, with no brands I hadnít heard of elsewhere, but the occasional nice Belgian (say, for example, something from De Dolle).

Somehow, this place fits right in with the whole hippie-ish vibe of the town. Aside from being a very fresh grocery, they also had quite an impressive selection of beers. I really like their large selection of pre-filled growlers from all the breweries in the area (french broad, pisgah, highland, etc.) You can also pick up some of the ’lusty monk’ mustard when the green man brewery is closed. Prices are pretty good and I’ll certainly stop back here again.

Great selection for the ETN/WNC area. Two guys were climbing a ladder and jumping up on top of the beer cooler section to look for stuff for me. Place is kind of crowded and the parking lot is a mess, but the beer selection and staff are great. Hopefully TN will change their stupid alcohol laws like NC did a couple of years ago, and we can have a place like this.

This is kind of a hippyish grocery store located down town, with a great beer selection. Some singles, some rare stuff, and prices seemed reasonable. One of the stockers told me that the beer buyer takes his selction personally, and it shows. Beware, though - it can be a bit dicey getting into and out of.
