First I want to say that finding a parking space is tough. Once you find one leave your car there and walk around Asheville. And this was on a Tuesday afternoon. If you look across the road from Barleys you can see Asheville Wine Market. The selection is fair for Asheville, good for anywhere else. They have a very good import selection and only average for local and regional micros. No one asked to help, but it was busy. Did I mention that this was on a Tuesday afternoon. Prices are higher than Greenlife Grocery but about on par with other places I've been. Overall it is a good place to go. If you have the time I would suggest going to Greenlife to get your local and regional micros and then to the Asheville Wine Market to get your Belgiums and other imports.

Walked in not expecting much and found a nice stash of Founders Double Trouble and Breakfast stout at the best prices I have seen on these beers so far. For the beer only occupying a small section of this wine store there was an impressive selection of local brews (Highland, French Broad,Asheville Brewing) quite a few Belgians (Delerium Tremens), and a nice helping of Bells and Founders. Like others have said service was non-existent even though the three folks on staff saw me come in. Fair prices and decent selection, worth a stop-in if in Asheville.

This was my fifth stop on a recent trip to Asheville. This location was very easy to spot from the road as you are coming into town. There was a small nook on the left side of the store that housed all of the craft beer. As you might can tell by the name of the location, this is a wine store; no doubt about it... As with the previous reviewer, I had to go out of my way to grab someones attention to verify that was all the craft beer they had. He said yes, and instantly walked away... Sad. There was lots of local representation here with a few Belgians, but that was about all that I really saw. Not really that impressed with this location. But at least it looked nice...

This is a place evidently dedicated to wine, but the beer selection was good. There was a section for beers just straight through the door toward the back, where a wall forms but stays open so you can still walk past for more wine. A cooler had some stuff in it, but it was mostly stuff already out so you could take it cold. A couple of bottles were 12 oz. bottles that weren't on the floor. Of course, the local stuff was available, though I didn't see any growlers like most of the places have (which I'd rather get straight off the tap anyway). Nobody spoke to me except at checkout. A few people definitely saw me, but they were much more interested in the customers browsing the wine selection. I did end up taking home several local brews along with some Oskar Blues, and they were all good. It's difficult to rate the prices, since some were higher but some seemed really low.

For a wine store, I thought this place had a pretty nice selection; most of which was well priced. I pulled a Westmalle and an offering from the Asheville Brewing Co, both of which can't be had in my native Nashville. I wanted to get the Brooklyn IPA and a 6 pack of Bell's, but had just spent a pretty penny at Bruisin Ales the day before and thought my wife's tolerance for another haul might be low.

As a few of the previous reviewers mentioned, it's across the street from Barley's and next to a public parking lot so it's quite convenient. They also had a great selection of glassware as well, but didn't happen to notice the pricing.

Worthwhile stop if you're on this side of town.

This was my plan B wehn I discovered Bruisin Ale is closed on Mondays, ugh! I was just passing through, so I plan on hitting them on the way home...

Beers drank so far a good quality

Service was frindly enough.

Selection was pretty good, they had a about a 50/50 split of American & Import craft offerings. I would've hoped for more local stuff. My haul was all brooklyn & asheville brewing co offerings. There was enough there to make me happy. This place would be more of reccomendation for mixed purpose shopping, ie.making a wine lover happy at the same time. The wine selection looked very high-brow

Prices seemed very reasonable to me
