Located right in the heart of downtown Apex, just a 1/2 block off Salem and one block from Peak City Grill.

Fairly unassuming store on the outside. Large awning id's the place. Curtains over the windows help to keep light damage down on the product inside. Lots of dark wood on the inside makes for a pretty attractive presentation.

While the selection is top-notch, with a slight edge to micros over imports, this is not a large store. I wouldn't consider it a destination, but well worth a stop if you are in the area.

Founders, Terrapin, RJ Rockers, Thomas Creek all well represented. Good, and growing, selection of growlers. Owner is very knowledgeable about his product and will do what he can to accommodate requests.

This is the closest craft beer shop to me. It's a nice little place with a good atmosphere and a dedicated focus on craft beer. The selection is good but a little more limited than some of the more notable shops in the Triangle. And the prices are a little higher as well. But I'm glad to have them here in Apex.

The Beer Dispensery has an awesome selection of beer. They just recently obtained their on-premises ABC permit, so you can drink a cold one on sight. Highly recommended for craft beer fanatics. If you can't find it here, give it a few weeks and I bet they have it. Also, there is a great selection of local brews to try. The service is awesome too! if you have questions, or want some help finding a new beer, don't hesitate to ask the guy behind the counter for some sound advice. He is always quick to make some suggestions and point you in the right direction.

This store is a wonderful hideaway in a small town. I have lived in this area awhile and this is the best craft beet selection outside of going into Raleigh. Thenowner is an awesome guy who is always ready to help out. He has a good knowledge which is very helpful. If there is something you want to try to get in the store he will make the effort to make it happen. The selection is good with a nice balance in styles. There is a great selection from local microbreweries. They have tastings ever Thursday afternoon which is nice. Prices are a little bit higher but not outrageous. Anyone in the area must get to this place and check it out.
