It's not a large shop and it's pretty rustic, but the selection is great. There were 4 guys working when I stopped in and I literally got offered help from every one of them at some point. The prices are fair and just a touch higher than Appalachian Vintner, but not bank breaking. They have a few coolers with cold beer available and a couple local growlers as well.

They have quite a few gift boxes on top of their shelves which was a great surprise, and I don't think a lot of people know about them because they were pretty dusty; I suppose the eye doesn't gravitate towards that part of the shelf. I got a Duchesse De Bourgogne box for $30 that had two 750's and a really nice stem glass, and also a Boulevard Smokestack box that had four 12 oz bottles from their Smokestack series and a stem included, also. They have some other nice glassware for sale, too. '

Bruisin' Ales is a must stop bottle shop for Asheville, but I'd recommend checking it out after a stop in Appalachian Vintner who has a slightly larger selection and slightly cheaper prices.

I was pretty impressed...very nice selection of imports and local beers...nice vibe to the store, the guy working there was knowledgeable and helpful, I will definitely go back, there's even a nice little parking lot right next to it, which is nice to have downtown
