    I just moved to Asheville a couple of months ago. Does anybody know of any beer stores/supermarkets that have a large/good selection of singles/ build your own 6 pack beers? I know whole foods and earthfare both have a very small section of single bottles and apalachan vinter has a bit more but not huge. Cheers!

    Bruisn' has a good selection of singles, and typically anything they carry is available in that format. Most local and seasonal singles are kept in the cooler, IIRC.

    Yeah, Bruisin pretty much almost wants you to buy a single, and skip the larger 4/6 packs.. check there, but they won't have anymore than Vintner.

    I'd say Greenlife (Whole Foods) is probably the best place for build-your-own 6pk style singles. Some of the crap on the bottom shelf seems to sit there, but if you catch it at the right time they do put a lot of the new stuff and seasonals out there (as long as they're under or around $9.99/6pk, according to the beer dude). The Ingles on Tunnel has a decent sized singles selection. Most of the selection is large/faux craft brews, but some nice NC beers too and only $8.99. The discount on 6pk of singles at Earthfare is nice, but I've never found 6 singles there that I wanted to buy at the same time. The homebrew shop Hops & Vines has a small singles cooler and offers 10% off 6 or more as well. There isn't a large selection, but usually good stuff. The only other place I can think of is Kitchen & Co. I *think* I remember them having a pretty big singles selection, but that place is weird.
