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.

Not a beer store, a health food store first an for most. Good selection of craft brews, not many large formats, no draft. Pretty average in comparison with other corporate health food stores i.e world market, but really no sales people to really geek out with. A decent place to grab a 6-pack.

Itís hard for me to make a complete asessment of this place because Iíve only ever stopped there for the beer, not the food. That said, they have a great selection of both cold & room temp. beer, as well as growlers of several local breweries. Last time I was there I scooped up a growler of Pisgah IPA, which was both delicious & well priced. Service has been good as well. The same dude has been there every time Iíve been in, and heís been very friendly and willing to help out. Definitely worth stopping in if you are in the area.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

My problem with this place is its all six packs. There are a few singles, but they are the kinds of things that just arenít available in six packs. you canít split things up. its basically a whole foods when you get down to it. Selection is pretty good, probably wonít find anythiing here you canít find elsewhere in Asheville. The one upside is that this may be a place where nice stuff gets overlooked due to the demographic. Found a St Bernardus 12 special edition because of this.

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.
