Appalachian Vintner LOVES Local!

Unique and locally owned businesses are what has always made Asheville a very special place. Make sure to support them whenever you can. Whether here or elsewhere, the money you spend with small local companies stays in that community.

Why is Asheville called Beer City USA?

Asheville & Western North Carolina have become a beer meca. These gorgeous mountains host a world renowned craft beer scene, winning Beer City USA three years in a row (2009, 2010, 2011)! So feel comfortable closing your eyes and pointing to any one of the breweries below, each offers something unique and they ALL make good beer, some make amazing beer. Appalachian Vintner stocks beers from all the local breweries, as well as the best craft beer from every corner of the world. A rotating draft selection is also always available.
