Amazing selection of bottles and a great draught line up. Clean organized and stylish establishment. The staff is top tier, very friendly and extremely knowledgable. In all honesty one of, if not the best beer retailers I have been to. A must visit if you're in the asheville area even if you're just looking for a pint. Staff can also point you in the direction of any of the local breweries or beer bars so a great launching point for any beer-cation.

Stopped in while visiting the Asheville region. Awesome place. The entire front end of the store is wine related (although there are a handful of beer displays mixed in here and there), but when you head to the back, you see the C-shaped bar, with about 20 or so beer taps available for samples, pints, and growler fills. Behind the backside of the bar seating are some tables with extremely comfortable seating for hanging out with friends. Surrounding the bar areas are walls of shelves with a huge, expansive selection of beer. I'd be willing to bet they have just about everything that distributes to Asheville available right here. The guy working was awesome. Very quick to offer samples, as well as information regarding events in the area, as well as events happening in the store itself. We happened to be there for a Beer Camp tap takeover, and a food truck pulled in the back parking lot to serve everyone there. Awesome place to go...I can't recommend it enough!

I like Appalachian Vintner. It is my go to beer emporium in Asheville. The staff is well versed, and they know what they have and where to find it. Unique Atmosphere, seems like I'm in one of those boutique grocery stores rather than in a Beer/Wine store. Well done. Wish they had an even larger selection, but then again, not everyone distributes to North Carolina. Also, you can sample (by this I am meaning they have taps open, but you do have to pay) there as well. Easy to find, easy to park, and easy to take home and enjoy.

This store seems to have it all. Its very open in regard to space, but they have a huge selection. Some bottle shops you go into are so jammed up with bottles you get vertigo or claustrophobic trying to figure out what is where. This store had a nice layout. The front of the store was more wine and that sort of thing. I don't drink wine and know very little about it other than I prefer beer over it, although they do have a very nice selection I am sure if that is what you are looking for. As you walk past the center of the store, where they have taps ready for growler fills, you enter a very large and reasonably priced selection of beers. It seems they focus more on the local guys, which is a good thing, but they also have national craft beers and imports. I really wasn't focusing on imports, actually I am almost exclusively American craft these days. Not that imports are bad, but, I have run my course on them and we have some damn good breweries in the US, and in particular the state of North Carolina. They had what I was looking for, did not seem to have restrictions on how many bottles I wanted, although it wasn't all that rare, but rare enough to suggest that some stores may put restrictions on it. The staff was friendly and seemed very knowledgeable, I will return next time I am in Asheville. Too bad they were out of one of the beers I wanted, but so does everyone else! My point is they did have it. So check it out, its a pleasant store to get what you need and maybe some things you were not looking for from some of the local breweries, which we should support. Support local!
