It looks like a rundown little grocery store but inside is the best beer store in North Carolina. They have a rotating selection of everything you could want. The staff is generally knowledgeable and they have helped me select some great beers I would never have tried otherwise. Perhaps best of all, the prices are as low and fair as any quality beer store I have seen. Bestway is a serious gem.

Bestway sets the bar for quality craft beer service establishments. Roger and Leslie go out of their way to serve their customers and it shows in everything they do. I make the 30 minute drive on a regular basis and will continue to becuase it is always worth it. Cheers to Bestway!!

This place is awesome. I would be willing to take the 25 minute trip out here anytime. The selection is amazing and couldn't get much better. If you are a beer fanatic you need to go to this place. I have recently relocated here from North East Ohio and have done quite a bit of exploring and this is by far the best beer store around.

This place is right down the street! Which can dangerous on payday. Staff is helpful. Can accommodate most request, just ask. Best craft beer selection in Greensboro. Wall Of Beers!!! This is almost overwhelming. Give yourself plenty of time to browse.

A must visit in Greensboro. One of the biggest cold displays I've seen in NC. Friendly staff, knowledgeable. Good little glassware display too. Several dozen bomber size bottles for display, maybe a dozen or so growler varieties. Lots of beers you won't find at any given Total Wine.
Re-review: September 2013 I bumped up my previous ratings from back in June; after living in Greensboro for about a year, this place is the best in town. They have new stuff ALL the time, several seasonals in rotation. Best place in town for NC beers, from Old Hickory to Fullsteam to Carolina Brewery, etc. Staff really is fun to talk to.

Not too often do I go into a store and feel overwhelmed enough to ask for help. I consider myself, fairly well versed in the art of beer. This was not the case here. There were so many different NC beers, it was insane! Being from SC, I hadn't heard of most of them, so I had to get some direction from the resident "beer guy". He was somewhat helpful in directing me to the better NC beers in the styles I liked. Overall, a fairly solid place and prices were reasonable.

This place is a gem. There are tons of beer to select from. The staff was very friendly, and very informative. I told them what I really like in a beer, and they pointed me in the right direction. They have a nice selection of growlers, to go along with all the 6 packs, and singles. This is a great place to stop in.

This place looks like a slightly sketchy grocery store (and a very small grocery store, maybe more like a glorified convenience store or bodega) but inside there is an amazing 1/4 of the store dedicated to great craft beer. There is nothing fancy about the exterior or the interior of the place but who the heck cares... Just turn left when you enter the store.
Lots of bombers, some single small bottles, lots of six packs, and a decent selection of glassware.
I didn't ask for any help from anyone here so I cannot evaluate the staff of the store - I felt a little like a kid in a candy store and had a hard time restraining myself for buying one of everything.
The selection at this place is great - just about all of the NC breweries are represented and with multiple offerings from each. Additionally there is a great selection of other craft breweries that distribute to NC and some really great European breweries.
Since it is a grocery, I am not going to review food.
Prices are competitive with other places I have visited in NC and would be good in NYC/NJ as well.

I was in town accompanying my wife on one of her marching band venture, so I thought I would stop by.
Atmosphere: I plugged this into my GPS and even when we were less than a quarter mile away, I started scratching my head. Yep, this place really comes out of the blue for sure! The interior looks like a grocery store, but the left hand side is absolutely magical! Hell, the ENTIRE left 1/4 of the store is dedicated to craft beer.... and they get the good stuff!
Quality: Nothing on the "beer side" of that store sucks. Seriously. If it's distributed to NC, this place has it.
Service: I went there fairly late at night, so I imagine that whoever the beer rep is had gone home, however, from me to him: KUDOS!
Selection: Like I said, all the NC greats were represented. e.g. Foothills, Olde Hickory, Duck Rabbit, Natty Green's, etc. Additionally, they had tons of imports (especially Mikeller) and an insane amount of brewery glassware. As for me on this visit, I picked up a FFF/Mikkeller "Boogoop," a couple of Olde Hickory bombers, and a Duck Rabbit snifter.
Value: Coming from DC, I thought the prices were just fine.
I highly recommend this store. However... bring a car!

From friendly, knowledgeable "beer geeks" (Leslie etc...), to Roger –– the personable, accessible, connoisseur owner, Bestway is at the top of its class. As soon as you step onto beer aisle you are assaulted with a myriad of tasty options. If you’re like me, you'll probably wish you hadn't spent so much money there (because there are so many options and you want to taste everything). But on the bright side, they're usually $2-5 cheaper than other local bottle shops. They're the best around; I promise you, you won't want to leave.
