Generally slightly over-priced, but the great selection helps make up for that. TONS of domestic micro-brews especially.

Definitely a must see locale on the southern beer tourism circuit. Incredible Belgian selection. Yuengling’s is the closest thing to a macro in this beer only store. Intelligent and friendly service. Up to date website. Carolina brews very well represented as well as most, if not all, breweries available in NC.

Great beer store! Great selection, decent prices - a few of the prices are a little higher than I am used to but did not shop anywhere else in the area to compare, and great service. Jason and Julie were very helpful and very open to conversation about beer, their store, the industry etc. I will make sure that Bruisin Ales remains on my to-do list for future trips to Asheville.

This place is awesome. An amazing selection of beer at reasonable prices. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable. The store also has a great selection of glasswear and other breweriana. A very solid beer store, one of the best.

I wouldnt say this place has the best selection in NC, but that certainly have a great selection. Found Black Albert here along with several other gems. They do, however, have beers that i have never seen in NC. A great store and if you can find a place to park, it is worth a look.

jhliesen  (18) West Melbourne, Florida | November 30, 2008
Made a special stop during our annual vacation in the NC mountains. Wonderfull variety of selection, easily the best selection in NC. I was looking for local beers that I hadn’t tried before and I wasn’t disappointed. I asked for help on local selections I might have missed and I walked around the store and found another six pack of singles! I love stores that allow you to purchase singles.! Everyone was friendly and helpful, I will be back next year for the local growlers.

This place is amazingThe staff offered to help me find stuff, but were totally cool with just letting me browse around by myself. For the most part, the beers were averagely priced. Some beers were kinda pricey, but nothing was unreasonable. A few rare beers and regionals, and lots of belgians. A must for anyone in the area.

If you are in Asheville, you HAVE to stop here. I have a great bottle shop in my town (Knightly Spirits) and this definitely rivals it. Lots of hard to find stuff and breweries I have no access to, plus a great and knowledgeable staff. How cool is it that they have local growlers in stock, too!!

This is the store of my dreams. Beer and beer stuff. An entire wall dedicated strictly to Belgians. Everything is catagorized to region. Super variety of styles and counties. Singles available. Local growlers and mini-kegs. Books, t-shirts, and glasses. I love it. MellowMushroom down the block... Overall, an absolute must visit or must return!

If you like the Belgians, this is the place. I don’t, but this place has a great selection of other dark and strong ales as well. Good selection of the locals, a fair amount of domestic micros and some good imports. Staff seems knowledgeable. Prices are ok, could be better, but it is Asheville and a specialty shop. I guess I just don’t like I deserve a glass. Same thing happens to me at Brawley’s in Charlotte.

What a great store! Staff was very helpful! I was in a hurry and he jumped in to help me fill my order! What a selection. My biggest disappointment was that I had such a short time to visit and there was so much to see! Special Orders? No problem. It was there and waiting WITHOUT a Credit card to hold it! Thanks, Jason!
