Small shop, but pretty packed with interesting offerings.
From the sounds of it, the owner mules up NODA cans which is good news for the triangle. There were also some B.C. breweries that were represented that startled me a little bit. How the hell did Howe Sound and Parallel 49 (never even seen in Seattle) find it's way to these shelves, and why?
taplist was a little weak on this particular visit - seems like half the lines had been killed and not replenished. oh well - still did have some st bernie xmas and fullsteam fruitcake. In what appears to be a (tolerated?) trend in the area, everything is served in plastic cups as I'm assuming there isn't sufficient plumbing to wash dishes? Regardless, this sucks big time. It just seems like if you are going to make the effort to get high end kegs (which i understand they do), then you have to find a way to get some actual glassware in the house. Major bummer.
Cool vibe to the place - enough space to move around and some tables out front. Fun place to hang out and kill some time. Even better yet, no TV, so you don't have to suffer through any tarhole athletics

A regular to this place. I stop by multiple times a week whether its to pick up beer or hang out and drink a few. Don't serve food, but the burger shop next door will deliver. On most occasions you can find fellow beer enthusiasts to make conservation with over a few beers. There are over ten taps (some exclusive to the area) that are reasonable priced. If the taps don't interest you, you can open a bottle or even bring in your own. On more than one occasion, while discussing a beer not available in the area, the owner has pulled it out from his hidden stash to share. He goes out of his way by driving hours away to NC breweries such as Noda and Wickedweed to provide his customers with great beer that is not distributed yet. Overall, great place to enjoy/buy beer and meet other people who appreciate good beer.
