Made a point to detour the trip home from Carolina so that I could stop in and check this place out.
Easy to get to from the interstate and anybody travelling I-40 through Asheville.
Nice, clean, well layed out store. Not the largest in square footage, but they have purely gone for the quality not quantity strategy and it definitely works.
Honestly I could have spent much more time in there. Either looking through much more of the merchandise or talking to the very friendly help. Was able to pick up some beer that's local to the area, and some other import stuff that we just don't get locally to me.
They have a great selection of beer. Add to that glassware, signs, t-shirts, hats and other accessories.
Fridge full of singles and growlers from local breweries. Pisgah and others.
Great store in a great part of town. Wish this place was local to me.

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.
