Walked into Bruisin' Ales on a Tuesday evening, passing through Asheville on our way home from Ohio. An absolutely great selection of both local and American micros, as well as Europeans. The clerk at the desk was very helpful in finding me the perfect place to eat dinner, and of course, drink beer! While there, I purchased a couple bottles for the B&B we are staying at (Oakland Cottage - awesome deal and great for families with kids!!!!). I purchased a growler of local brew from Pisgah Brewery which I have yet to try, but I am sure it will be great! This place is a definite must see if in the area and it's easy, cause it's right downtown. Check it out...you will not be disappointed!

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.
