Small, yet comfortable bottle shop with a decent selection and several taps.

In a trend I hope catches on in more of the country, Tasty Beverage Company is a bottle shop with taps where customers can drink while they shop (or drink what they shop for). Located in what was an old train station, the vibe is more West Coast than East. Bright, lots of white surfaces, and plenty of well stocked wire commercial kitchen shelves. Good mix of local, US, and international beers. While the shop is small, there are six to eight taps and a reasonably diverse selection of chilled and shelved bottles. The bar was full on a Tuesday night, but given the size of the place, there was no problem making may way back for additional rounds. Beertender was quick with suggestions and samples. Everyone in the store was very knowledgeable. Prices were consistent with what I've seen around the US. Given the selection and frequency of tap rotation, it could easily become a regular stop when I'm in town. (990 characters)

Quality of the beer and huge selection is why I'd say this place needs to be checked out. Prices were, to me, really reasonable as well. I found a few things that sold out in my area long ago (in from VA) and were considerably cheaper - $15 for Blushing Monk vs. $18 or $19 around home for instance. Nice items on tap and a place that will let you open any bottle sold in the store to have there while you shop. I like that.

I definitely got the feeling that they were very busy even though it was not crowded at all. I felt like asking a question or two made me feel like a burden so I really just went with what I knew I wanted without asking or branching out. Just not exactly what I'm used to if I'm spending $100+ on a shop visit.

Prices were great, selection was great, service at the bar in serving beer was great. Would have been nice if someone offered to help me navigate the store a bit better - that's all. (929 characters)

I had stopped here several years ago when I was in town for business. I was in town again today and made a co-worker who was travelling with me stop to pick up some bottles for the trip.

The selection was well organized and extremely easy to search. More importantly, when I asked for recommendations, the guy who was helping us was awesome. He pulled 5 beers that I have not had and 3 of them so far are really good. I appreciate going to a place and having someone know their inventory well enough to provide some suggestions. Selection was very impressive especially because I was from out of town and did not have access to some of the options here. Great belgian and sours selection. (696 characters)

I have been to, and with, Tasty Bev since they first opened their door in the Raleigh warehouse district. Since then I pretty much have all my BA and Untappd check-ins here. The guys that owns and manage this little shop are top notch. The selection is great, and they are alway on top of the releases and trend. The greatest thing about Tasty Bev is probably all the special releases and tap take over, which announce promptly on their website and Facebook. (458 characters)
