Decent enough. The selection is small for beer, but it is a great catch all spot for beer, wine and home brewing. Home brewing is what I feel they are best suited at. The staff can sometimes be a little pretentious, but hey, it is in Asheville, and hipsters are still around these parts. Good enough for a quick stop for beers.

A small store but high on service. They have a good selection for the space they have and consistently get the special releases. They LOVE beer and it shows in their service. Prices are good based on their size and location. Top 3 bottle shop in Asheville.

I recently stopped in this store, and was pleasantly surprised at the beer (and wine) selection available , not to mention they also had a few beers available for samples. While I was in the store, a steady stream of what appeared to be regular customers came in to try some of the new beer being offered (Boulevard Brewing)
I do believe the real intent of this store is to provide supplies for the home brewer, and the owner is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to beer, and by that, I mean brewing, tasting, and the who's who of current beer. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
However, they also stock a very good selection of beer, to include growlers from the local scene.
As far as West Asheville is concerned, you will not find a more complete selection of available beer.
Don't let the wine at the front of the store fool you to as what is available towards the back of the store.

Hops and Vines has a great selection craft beer and wine. The owner strives to keep product fresh. I typically buy my IPAs from here because he keeps his stock fresh (still lots of hop aroma left). I actually went there looking far a particular IPA one time and he said he wasn't selling it because the shipment he received wasn't fresh enough. Same is true for the homebrew supplies he sells. Beer/wine selection isn't huge, but what he has is usually top rated (Beeradvocate Ratings posted on shelf). Be careful...I always spend way more than i plan to when i shop here.
