I stopped into Appalachian Vintners last Saturday after a day at the Biltmore Estate with my wife and daughter. It was my reward for good behaving while touring the house and gardens.

Appalachian Vintners just moved into this space and it shows it. The store is big with large windows which allow lots of natural light in. The store isn't packed with shelves and it seemed a little empty to me.

As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by an employee who asked me if they could be of assistance. I told him I was in the market for local beers and he pointed me in that direction. He also gave a few recommendations on his Asheville (and NC in general favorites). The advice was much appreciated and not overbearing in the least bit.

The selection was quite good particularly when it came to NC beers...Olde Hickory, French Broad, Foothills, etc. There were lots of American craft standards as well New Belgium, Smuttynose, Stone, Allagash, Victory, Troegs and so on. I ended up with some bombers from the three aforementioned North Carolinia breweries.

Overall, Appalachian Vintners is a must stop in the Asheville area. Great selection and impeccable service. (1,161 characters)

Easily one of the top 3 bottleshops I've been to. Incredible selection of beers from all over. They had Westbrook shelf stuff, Hop Drop, a bunch of stuff from Anchorage, and about 20 well curated taps to top it all off. I wish I was closer, because this place was awesome. (272 characters)

My only real knock on this place was all the sensory overload! Just a phenomenal experience all the way around. Greeted by two very helpful souls that genuinely appreciated the fact that I stopped in. I was able to negotiate the racks easily and make my selections with ease. The only downside was I had to limit how much I bought! Just a super place and certainly a must visit, in my opinion. (399 characters)

Nice shop, great selection of NC beers , and friendly staff. Beer shelves are in the back but I advise you check for beer near the front wine display. I was told by an employee they had no Hop Drop 'N Roll but while leaving I found a whole pallet of it near the front display and had to make a second purchase before leaving. (325 characters)

Incredible selection and great prices on many hard to find NC beers. A fedex right down the street if you need to ship home, which you may find necessary! (154 characters)
