This is my go-to spot in the Raleigh area. While it primarily functions as a wine shop, they have 16 quality beers on draft at all times and this usually represents the best tap list that you'll find anywhere in town at any given point in time. The owners and other employees are extremely knowledgeable and will go out of their way to ensure that your experience is top-notch and that the shop's high standards are maintained. The clientele is great as well, consisting largely of familiar faces and folks who really know their stuff when it comes to beer. However, newcomers and beer novices are always made to feel welcome as well.

The selection is significantly smaller than what you'll find at some other shops around town, but everything on the shelf is quality and turns-over rapidly, which means it's generally as fresh as possible. The prices are also extremely fair, both for drafts and packaged beer. 6-packs or bombers I purchase here are generally at least a buck cheaper than they would be elsewhere. Two of my favorite things about the place are: 1) they fill growlers and 2) they also offer small 4.5 oz. pours of all their drafts.

My only qualm is that they don't stay open a bit later (close at 7:00 most nights). But that's part of what makes the place so attractive - it's not a sports bar, it's a classy shop.
