A pretty good beer store in the downtown Asheville area. I had a work meeting near this place, and so it was a good chance to checkout craft beer selections from across the region. Prices seemed fair for the area. Plenty of local selections, but also some of the bigger ones like Dogfish Head among others. They had an interesting selection of belgian brews, and craft imports, but I did not look at those. They also had a good selection of ciders and meads.
They also fortunately ship, which was cheaper and safer than checking a bag. Don't be afraid of this option. It was fairly straight forward.

I would highly recommend if you are in the area, if for nothing else to check out the local options.

Came in to grab some beers to take back home and the Guy checking out everyone was a total douche. Asked a question about a beer and he acted like it pained him to answer.. Selection is ok, somewhat small. I'm going to try app vintners instead today.

Pretentious atmosphere, tried to get a workers attention but he was posted up flirting with some girl. Prices are also more expensive than other stores around. Did not feel I was "worthy" to be in their presence. Appalachian Vintner was much friendlier and cool.

Great location but overpriced and the staff was not very friendly. They have a lot of bottles but the store is very small so it gets crowded fast. Prices are a few dollars more than the other large bottle shop in town.
