So glad to have the opportunity to patronize this facility. Stopped by as part of a east coast beer road trip, and am not disappointed at all. It's a large, warehouse style bottle shop with a boat load of wines...
Large windows on the front let in a good amount of light, with seating spread through out the facility. Nice, homey feel, with some power outlets in case you are also travelling and need to get a charge.
Ten taps, with a good selection of local brews, and some American main stay breweries like The Bruery. Highland Black Raspberry Mocha Stout. A bourbon barrel aged mocha stout with raspberries. Nice flavor, good body. Really mellow bourbon character. $6.00 for a pint...awesome.

The beer selection is really nice. Lots of stuff that I was HOPING, but not expecting to find down this way. 90% of the bottles are at room temp, kind of stacked towards the back of the store, anywhere they have room.
Jeff was working when we stopped in, and he was super friendly. You can tell he has a good feel for the industry, and it really shows. This is a nice place, and would recommend it to anyone. I think the deserve their "world class" designation. Keep up the good work!

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.
