This is a great place. Looks small from the outside, but you'll see how much awesomeness can be packed into such a space. There are rotating taps for beer to be enjoyed while you shop, or while you hang out. The tap list is always pretty killer. The first area of shelves when you walk in hold all the local fare of bottles, and there is a cooler on your left with a bunch of NC growlers for purchase. Further past the tap/bar, and you get into more shelves carrying American craft and imports. There are a couple other coolers, one mostly cans, and one little fridge with some coffee and energy drinks. The staff there is really laid back, really helpful, and damn cool. This is a really great place to hang out. They do have a beer club that offers first dibs on some limited releases, as well as monthly specials and offers. Also, they have running sales on NC beers when the Hurricanes play, and other cool stuff like that. I stop by here every time I am near Raleigh. Love it here!

These guys do a fantastic job - and the nice thing is their focus is on mixed 12oz bottles at a reasonable price.

Plenty of 22oz bottles available, as well as 6-8 taps which rotate frequently - always interesting and some of the most unique in the triangle area.

Nice patio area to enjoy the current on tap selections.

Staff is friendly and always willing to assist and recommend.

If you're in the triangle area, this is a must stop.

Hunted down this place while visiting my son. Small interior but big on selection. I'd guess if a beer is distributed in NC, it's at Bottle Revolution. Very friendly and helpful staff. About a half dozen quality taps if you bring a growler. Beers are displayed well and NC brews, which can be hard to find, are placed together in their own space. A MUST stop of you live or visit in Raleigh.

My first stop on a Raleigh/Carrboro tour.

Cozy store run by a clearly passionate owner. Nice selection of taps featuring half/full pours - i ticked the raleigh brewing anniversary beer made for the shop and a half of 6 geese a laying. Similar to my gripe with Beer Study, plastic cups are terrible. There has to be a way to remedy that situation :(

Great selection of bottles and some noticeably outstanding prices (Achel and De Dolle stood out as being the lowest I have seen). Some Green Man Snozberry rolled in that morning so that was a nice find.

Strong store - well priced, and knowledgeable

A great bottle shop run by freindly, knowledgable beer lovers. A great selection of local, craft and imports. Interesting selections on tap taht you can enjoy while shopping or take out into the courtyard, You can grab a growler, a six of a rare or common nature, or put together a 4 or 6 pack from a huge selection of singles to experiment, I get the same feeling going here that I got as a kid going to the toy store!

Bottle Revolution is one of the best bottle shops in the RDU area. Ted has a great selection of beers, although it's not overwhelming like some of the others. The atmosphere is great, and after you've been there a few times you get to know everyone. The employees that work there are very friendly and usually can help you choose a beer on tap or on the shelves.

The most important fact is that Bottle Revolution genuinely cares for their customers and seems to always live up to expectation.

Just started visiting the store recently and I now wish it was closer to me so I could make it my go to store. Not the largest selection in the area but it is the "go to" store if you want service and atmosphere. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable so if you are new to craft beer then this is a place i would check out. This is the best place in raleigh to find the serious beer geeks and talk about beer.

Good beer on tap and with a patio outside, it makes a great place to have a few and hang out.

Love, Love, LOVE this place.

Outside of home and work, I probably spend more time here than any other place. And for good reason.

Key element to their business is that they sell everything in singles. For the beer geek who wants to constantly try new things, this is key, as you don't have to commit to a six pack for new beers you're unsure about.

I think the domestic selection is the best in Raleigh. They have their usual selection of the common good beers, but they also cycle through the new brews quite often. Usually all the new big ones are available in some quantity, and they get several new ones in each week. I've been coming here a year now very regularly, and have yet to run out of new beers.

Drafts are pretty good. There are usually four to six on (depending on the day), and usually pretty good quality. When they run special events, the draft quality goes off the charts. They get some fantastic kegs in.

Service is amazing. Ted, Jen, & Robin are all super friendly and extremely helpful. They also really know their beer. There are precious few people I'll ask for recommendations, but these three definitely make the list. I've yet to be disappointed with their advice.

Love this place. If you are in the area you have to drop by. Between Ted, Jen and Robin you will get good advice and friendly service. The beer club is a great value and good way to get inside info and limited beers plus a good monthly selection. The tap selection is great and they rotate fresh beers out regularly. Trust me, you will enjoy your visit and probably meet a fellow beer geek in the process.
