This store seems to have it all. Its very open in regard to space, but they have a huge selection. Some bottle shops you go into are so jammed up with bottles you get vertigo or claustrophobic trying to figure out what is where. This store had a nice layout. The front of the store was more wine and that sort of thing. I don't drink wine and know very little about it other than I prefer beer over it, although they do have a very nice selection I am sure if that is what you are looking for. As you walk past the center of the store, where they have taps ready for growler fills, you enter a very large and reasonably priced selection of beers. It seems they focus more on the local guys, which is a good thing, but they also have national craft beers and imports. I really wasn't focusing on imports, actually I am almost exclusively American craft these days. Not that imports are bad, but, I have run my course on them and we have some damn good breweries in the US, and in particular the state of North Carolina. They had what I was looking for, did not seem to have restrictions on how many bottles I wanted, although it wasn't all that rare, but rare enough to suggest that some stores may put restrictions on it. The staff was friendly and seemed very knowledgeable, I will return next time I am in Asheville. Too bad they were out of one of the beers I wanted, but so does everyone else! My point is they did have it. So check it out, its a pleasant store to get what you need and maybe some things you were not looking for from some of the local breweries, which we should support. Support local!

Sweet bottle shop on south side of town. The beer is mostly in the back corner opposite the entry. Larger selection of single bottles and cans. Knowledgeable, friendly sales staff. Reasonable.

I stop in here every time I go to Asheville. Great selection always something very unique of draft, staff is super friendly always have a pint or two and talk to whoever is there. Prices are reasonable, everything is easy to find.

This place could be so much better than it is. Was ignored when I walked in by a big man at the front counter. I can't stand that. While there's a great selection, it's impossible to find what you're looking for. The beer section is pretty cramped. Producr is organized by the location of the brewery instead of by style. Even when you find the brewery you're looking for you'll find the same product is sometimes in 3 different places. Prices were acceptable.

Huge shop with a massive selection. Beer, wine, merch, it's all here. There is a bar area too, so you can sample a beer on tap and get a growler as well. Definitely a must-visit while in Asheville.

Of the 3 beer stores visited here in Asheville, this place had the largest selection for sure, just not the intimate vibe of the others. Still this place Has a friendly feel to it with nice centered bar having many local & regional offerings. This is by far the best beer store I've seen in the south! I can spend hours here and spend too much money. A must stop.
