EDIT: After logging probably ten trips to this joint, I feel justified bumping the service up to a 5. Jason and Julie are excellent folks and just plain fun.
I've been to Brusin' Ales twice now, and both times have come away quite pleased, if a bit hurting in my back pocket. (Not like that you pervs; I'm talking 'bout my wallet.)
The shop is clean, small and well lit, and has an attractive selection of 750s and larger bottles filling an entire wall. Two others are taken up with singles and sixers, and then there's a small cooler with singles and growlers from local micros (Pisgah and French Broad so far.) Also of interest is the wide selection of glasses and books, along with a few T shirts - I picked up a rockin' Gulden Draak shirt and wear it proudly!
So, the selection! You'll see beers from Allagash, Rogue, Bells, Rochefort, St. Bernardus, Avery, Weyerbacher, Left Hand, North Coast, Urthel, Flying Dog, Anderson Valley among others. More than a few hard to find Belgians, De Dolle and Van Steenberge featured nicely. The beers are perhaps a tad more expensive than they could be, but Asheville storefront rent ain't cheap, either.
Their website is serviceable, and is kept up to date -- check it for the latest arrivals. And, like everyone else has mentioned, Julie and Jason are Good People and very courteous and helpful. You can tell they're really passionate about beer.
Brusin' Ales is another shining star in Asheville's considerable, and growing, beer scene. Do yourself a favor and stop in!
EDIT: Raising the score on this one. It just keeps getting better and better, and I have spent probably a thousand bucks here so yes, I love it.

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.
