We bring the best beers

from around the world to one place.  In craft beer jargon, a “WHALE” refers to a sought-after, legendary, and amazing beer. With our locations in Asheville, Greenville SC, and Charleston SC, we offer a sophisticated, fun, and unique approach to craft beer.

Our selection is vast.

There’s something for everyone’s taste and budget. From vintage bottles out of the cellar to crushable craft beer cans, we have a wide range of offerings to choose from. We also serve world class wine, cider, sake, mead, seltzer, kombucha, craft soda, and did we mention rose on draft?

We invite you to come in

and enjoy a “White Whale” you have always wanted to try and have never gotten your hands on, or quench your thirst with your favorite ol’ reliable German pilsner. Pick a wild card and sip something you have never seen or even heard of, but are glad you discovered it at The Whale :: A Craft Beer Collective.


West Asheville
