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 Brusin’ Ales or Appalachian Vintner, but worth a stop just the same.
Stopped here for some breakfast grub before going hiking. Didn’t 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 50’s-60’s. No they don’t 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 (can’t 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?
Just a grocery store that has a decent bottle selection with some growlers brought in fresh weekly. Okay, but I’d 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.
This is one of the nicer beer selections I’ve seen at a Whole Foods. It’s basically a chain of organic, health food grocery stores. Of course, this being Asheville, you don’t see a lot of iconography announcing the store as a Whole Foods and the building somehow blends into the environment. It’s 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 haven’t seen at the other local bottle shops. They had a guy buzzing around the beer section but he didn’t 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).
