5/5  rDev +8.7%

Nice store right on the edge of the very cool downtown Asheville area. Not the biggest place, but very clean and organized with a very large selection of beers. I'd say the best part was their Belgian selection. Huge wall full of imports, primarily Belgians. So many that I couldnt make up my mind what to grab. Also a good selection of the local NC beers and various other American micros. Very nice selection of glassware up front, both local stuff and your bigger name galsses like Orval goblets and Duvel tulips. Very friendly and helpful employees. Overall a great place. Definitely a good place to go if you are ever in western NC.

Edit: Upped the quality to a five. Jason and Julie took the time to read my review and send me a beermail about the DR Wee-Heavy. My bottle just had an errant punch on the date and is actually only a month or two old. Great service and follow-up. Always nice when owners take the time to read customers thoughts.

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.
