We stopped into this joint while traveling to the Sexual Chocolate release. Great bottle selection, well organized, great taps, awesome employees, and reasonable prices. We chatted with the guy behind the desk and ended up giving him some KY locals we had left over from the bottle share at Foothills earlier that morning and he hooked us up with a 2011 Event Horizon. Awesome gesture! If you are in town make sure you stop in.

In the heart of downtown Winston Salem. A bit cramped, but great selection as well as a good selection on tap. Friendly atmosphere. Good selection of imports, micros and local breweries. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. My go to place for great beer.

The store is kind of cramped with a lot of stuff packed into it and has about 6 cold cases of beer as well as an entire other room for room temperature bottles. They have a few beers on tap and a decent amount of glassware. Tough for me to figure out the organization but fun to look around.

People working in the store were friendly and helpful and pleasantly gave ni attitude when I asked for a fairly hard to find beer - and let me purchase one since they do not do a list to get in line for it. Also, they were knowledgeable about the beers they were selling and made a couple of good recommendations (though they were beers I have easy access to where I currently live so I did not grab them).

This is one of the best selections in the triad area of NC - possibly only bested by Bestway in Greensboro. There is a good selection of both domestic and foreign craft beer but judging by a couple of the other reviews, it might be best to check dates before purchasing as I am not sure how quickly the inventory moves.

Prices are a little higher than other shops in the area for bottles but they do have a really nice selection. The draft prices seem on par with other places in the area.
