Itís not your usual grocery store. Has a really good variety. Food counter and beer selection is great.

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?

Great selection for a grocery store. Plenty of sixers and belgian singles. The locals are well represented. Prices are fare.

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 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.

Great place for both food and beer. Even some nice wine if you so desire. Nice selection and changing all the time. You can usually find the latest special release or seasonal offerings.

Nice place with an excellent selection of beers for a grocery store. They have a selectioin of local growlers as well as singles. The prices are reasonable. They had no real gems but the beer guy was on hand to go over my list. Gave me an email address to check in advance for coming beers or if they have them in stock. Food selection in this place is very good as well.

I doubt youíll find a grocery store of any sort as absolutely tasty as this one or as well-stocked in the wine and beer department. The beer section is full of the best and not-so-best among American micros, and also finely represents Ashevilles many local breweries. Youíll find such notables as most of the Victory beers here, for example. Itís my go-to place for picking up beer these days. Prices are very reasonable, too. I only go to Bruisin Ales downtown when Iím looking for somethign a little more obscure--and where the prices are a bit higher. In short, really no way you can go wrong at Greenlife. I ding the service a bit because not all the beer staff seem all that knowledgable. A couple of times Iíve asked one of the regular SAs about a beer and heís basically read information from the label back to me. HA!

Great selection with pretty good prices... organic groceries (also pricey). I donít live in the area, but if I did, I would go here often.

a great organic grogery store. the selection is pretty good. the staff is always helpful. most of the beer is in sixers but when i have asked in the past they are usually willing to break it up and sell singles.
