Right off of 240 on the left (if you're heading south). There is parking next to the building. I'm pretty sure it's for anyone but there is a sign that says "private parking", not sure what for though. In the short time I was in the store I parked there with no problem.

Inside are shelves among a lot of dim lighting. There's a restroom toward the back for those who were in the middle of a road trip like I was. The beers are clearly placed on the shelves, with the locals in the middle of the store all together. This is where I spent most of my time. There is a great selection of beers from all over the world.

I didn't ask for help but I saw someone helping some other customers that were in there. The prices seemed reasonable to me.

A must stop if in the area or passing through. Since it's right off the highway it's not much of a detour if you're just passing through. A great selection, one not to be missed. Recommended.

Came in to grab some beers to take back home and the Guy checking out everyone was a total douche. Asked a question about a beer and he acted like it pained him to answer.. Selection is ok, somewhat small. I'm going to try app vintners instead today.

Pretentious atmosphere, tried to get a workers attention but he was posted up flirting with some girl. Prices are also more expensive than other stores around. Did not feel I was "worthy" to be in their presence. Appalachian Vintner was much friendlier and cool.

Great location but overpriced and the staff was not very friendly. They have a lot of bottles but the store is very small so it gets crowded fast. Prices are a few dollars more than the other large bottle shop in town.

The selection was alright, it was a small place and a pain in the ass to find parking. I have had people tell me for ages about how great this place is. I wasn't all that impressed. I know of two stores that have a much better selection and are not all that much bigger. One is Peabody's in Boone and the other is Sam's Quick Shop in Durham. Overall, if I was in Asheville staying downtown and needed some beer for the room, then I would go here, but, I wouldn't go out of my way. Unless I missed some other room full of beer. I asked for a few things I figured would be hard to find and they didn't have them. I found the same beer I was looking for down the road at Appalachian Vintner.
