This was my first stop for beer in the Asheville area. The location is a bit different from the picture here but it is in a building just in front of the old one. The current location is perfect for beer and wine and has a lot of room to expand. They were very helpful and friendly, they even got my kids a tasty draft root beer. The selection was very good and the prices were reasonable. They had a nice selection of glassware as well. They have several tap lines of beers that you can drink as you shop or at the wrap around bar that is in the middle of the shop. They really support the local brewers with all kinds of bottles, cans and tap lines. Just a sample of breweries I left with: Asheville, Green Man, Highland, Catawba, Olde Hickory, Foothills, Pisgah(but no bottles), Roth, Epic, French Broad, Duck Rabbit and many others. I will be back to AV just as soon as I can.

Was in Asheville for the day visiting from SC, so I decided to try out some of the local beer shops. Appalachian Vintner was far and away the best of the bunch. Huge selection of both domestic and foreign beers, and nothing I saw there struck me as being overpriced. The employees were friendly and made you feel welcome, instead of the pretentious attitude i experienced in other stores. Special shout out to Joel for helping with recommendations and finding some beers that were not available to me in the state of South Carolina. Overall an excellent store with good people. If you're in town for the day definitely make a point to stop by.

Great location and selection. Prices were higher than I am use to for some beers, but overall it was cheaper than Bruisin Ales. They have a nice tap selection in the middle of the store with some great beers. I did not like that you could not build your own 6 pack from anything in the store, it was only limited to small selection. A must visit if you want to take bottles home.

I've shopped for beers in NC, SC and OH and this, by far has the biggest selection I've yet been to. Staff is very helpful, inventory is quite large and they have the added value of taps so you can have a beer while you decide what to buy. Easy to get to, just minutes off I-40. If you're vacationing in or near Asheville, it's definitely a "must stop."

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.
