Wow what a beer store. They have more quality and selection packed in their little store than most with 10X the square footage. Great emphasis on local beer. Plenty of local growlers for sale. I live less than 10 miles from Catawba Valley brewery but I can only get growlers there on Friday evenings. Yet at Bruisin Ales you can get them any day of the week. Also they are the *only* bottle shop to carry several local seasonals and one-offs. The owners are super nice and took the time to show me around and talk beer on a very busy Friday night. They are a million reasons to go to Asheville. There are hundreds that are just beer related. Bruisin Ales is worth an Asheville trip by itself. Best beer store I've been in to date.
I rated the value at a bit pricey because it's a little more than my local shop. But when you consider the selection and rarity of some of there beers it's well worth it.

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
