Ahh, City Beverage. This may be the greatest little beer store on the planet. Their selection is nearly unbeatable; if they don't have it, they'll get it for you. This is not only true of their bottles, but their keg selection is huge! Rogue (anything), St. Bernardus, Chimay, Unibroue . . .

They also have a small but adequate homebrew section, an extensive glassware selection (Urthel, Aventinus, Gulden Draak, ...), and a growing wine section.

They have recently added 3 taps in the back room and a plasma TV where you can sample a pint while you shop. They've started wine tastings every Friday evening and beer tastings every Saturday afternoon.

Perhaps best of all, Spencer's (the owner) father-in-law runs Elkin Creek Vineyards and once or twice a year they will sponsor a 5 course meal with beer pairings out at the Vineyards. Awesome!

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.
