Stopped by here on a recent roadtrip down from Boston, when we walked in an immediate smile arrived on both of our faces, lots and lots of delicious beer was right in front of us. Found the bar using beerfly and so far it has not let me down. The selection is exceptional, well over 300 beers available and the staff is very knowledgeable, the bartender informed us that it was the first day that New Belgium was available in NC and so we got some. The food is actually quite good, but let's be honest, if the food wasn't so good, I'd still go back. Great bar with a friendly staff, highly recommend anyone in the area to stop in.

80 beers on tap is quite a thing to behold. I was enthused to see the nightly specials were local beers, and our bartender was prompt and attentive. Shared a light platter of meats/cheeses so I don't have much input on the food, although it looked tasty on the menu. I showed up on a weekday, and could imagine it getting quite packed on the weekends. There was also a nice patio for folks to sit or stand. Found the place by chance after pulling off the interstate, would bring a friend back, seems like a successful venture!

Interesting place to go to. It was quite busy, but we did go on a Saturday night. Loved the selection of beer and the overall atmosphere for the place. I would definitely go again due to my first experience there. However, I would go at a different time/day in order to receive better service (due only to the fact that they were packed).
