Lots of buzz about this place. I've read all the reviews, but I wanted to check it out for myself.
As mentioned in previous reviews, it's small, but I would not say its "cramped". I felt like I had plenty of room to stand back and take in their well stocked shelves.
Their selection covers just about everything under the sun, with a good representation of South Atlantic goodies, and most all NC brews you can get.
They have a little tap station that sells a couple beers at a time, and the prices for sample size glasses were very affordable.
Staff was very friendly (not the owner), initiated conversation with us, asked if we needed help, and didn't bother us too much. He was very energetic, a bit in your face.
They were my final bottle stop in Asheville, and I did notice that the prices were a dollar or two higher than the other places I had visited. Prices are prices, it's not easy to stock a store like they have.
Definitely a very solid bottle shop. Nothing mind blowing. I'd stop again if every in town.

Cozy place in downtown with a good selection and growler fills. It's a small place but well located.

Super friendly staff. It has an impressive selection of locals and other beers from all over. The staff are extremely friendly, and ready to lend a helping hand. I could not be happier that this is my local beermonger.

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
