I'm in the midst of a cross country drive at the moment and I was told this was the place to pick up some quality brews in Greensboro. I specifically was looking for founders and bells respectively. I found almost the entire selection from both breweries available which was great because coming from New York I've been unable to check either out. Awesome selection of beer, literally the entire left wall of this old grocery store is beer. The wall is organized by domestic craft micros, imports, domestic macros. When I got up to the register I was greeted by the cashier. I inquired about cigar city brewing since ive been searching for their scotch ale. Unfortunately they did not have it but they told me I could request the beer and see if they could get it. I've been all over the place to alot of beer places and I've never been asked that, totally awesome for them to offer that. If this was my local beer store I'd be thrilled, highest recomendation on this place.

The selection is great, I won't deny that. There is beer gems tucked in every nook and cranny at a decent price. Wine was pretty sub-par, nothing that stood out. The problem is, you can have the best selection but the people make it a home run for me. It took forever for me to locate anyone, besides the one at the cash register. When I finally found someone, the answers I received were dismal. I wasn't even sure if it was lack of beer knowledge or maybe just not wanting to. Both employees were very unfriendly and less than helpful. Another problem, which I brought to their attention, is the outdated beer. I didn't look at snack items for dates but I found it on 3 different beers. I think this establishment is good and in a unique, but fitting, location but it could be phenomenal if managed properly.

I visited my father in Burlington, NC last week. Since I knew I'd need my beer fix, I looked around for a place that boasted a great selection. All roads led to Bestway.

I was very impressed with their selection, which was nicely set up. Local NC brews had their own display, which I thought was a nice way of promoting it. Beers were grouped by country of origin as well as by brewery. Overall, everything was easy to find.

Service was nothing special. Although, I may have just been talking to the wrong person. I saw a lot of Dark Horse displayed and asked one of the workers if they had Plead the 5th. The guy said, "I've never heard of that before." C'mon, man! Never heard of Plead the 5th?

But my complaint is a small one. If you're in the Greensboro area, this is the spot. This, or the Total Wine just off Rt. 40.

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!!
