Finally a kick ass beer store in G-boro,I have waited for a long while for this.Located in my favorite area of of the city, the Lindley Park area,the new owners of this old store have a liking for real craft beer and it really shows.As you walk in the whole left wall/cooler is beer and good beer (the macros take a small bit at the end of the cooler),just micros galore to many to name and a great import selection to boot with stuff other than Belgian.I grabbed three Hop Stoopids and a mix bag of others ranging at around $60.00 bucks but the credit card machine was down the first time I went and that sucked.Today I went and they were outta the Hop Stoopid but the owner said a fresh shipment is coming in Tuesday,I was still able to grab some quality stuff and will return soon.The prices are very reasonable and its very beer friendly,I'll bere there alot for sure.

Horrible customer service. These guys have always been completely rude to their customers and are WAY over priced. But today took the cake. They were the only bottle shop to receive Bourbon County Coffee and REFUSED to sell it to the people waiting. Never again will I spend a dime with them.

Selection is OUTSTANDING with tons of great beer to choose from, but they are not very friendly and many of the employees are not very knowledgeable when you ask questions so I give a 4.

I work here. So naturally I'm a bit biased. The largest selection of rotated, refrigerated, and hard to find beers. Wicked Weed, Caskade, Crooked Stave, NoDa, Alesmith, The Bruery, etc. We also have a rotating growler menu.

Bestway is my go to bottle shop! If you can't find it here than it is either unavailable here, or it isn't worth having!
Roger, Nancy and Leslie have put a lot of hard work into this projct and it shows. The beer knowledge is some of the best around.

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 Another problem, which I brought to their attention, is the outdated beer.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.
