Every time I'm passing through Durham, I make it a point to stop here. World class selection and I always seem to find something that the local Total Wine stores don't have. Nice selection of NC beers in the front of the store, everything else is in the back. Nice glassware and cigar selection as well. Staff has always been friendly and always up to talking beer. Most beers can be bought in singles or 6 packs. This is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

One of the absolute best bottleshops I've been to. Bottles everywhere - trust me - you'll find something you're looking for. They've got a nice selection of drafts - so you can drink while you shop. Great selection of local craft brews, and a room full of imports. Super knowledgeable staff. Love this place. Trust me - if you're in the area, just check em out.

Stopped in on my way down for Sexual Chocolate release and was impressed at their vast selection. I found a lot of beers that I been looking for and cannot get in VA. The only thing that irritated me was that the store is dog-friendly. I'm a pet owner and dons't feel that a large dog should be allowed in a store full of glass bottles. It wasn't so much the dog, but the owner who had been drinking what they were serving. He was rude and continued to pass in front of me, no matter where I stood. The aisles are small and the dog could not help but to walk on my shoes. Anyway, it was just very irritating.

Nice selection and good staff! Stop in if you get the chance.

I must say that's it's nice to live in the Triangle. There are some great breweries and establishments for beer, but Sam's Quik Shop is amazing when it comes to the variety of beers available for purchase and/or on tap. The staff is unique and they can help you find most anything. I almost always drop by when nearby; however, I still have yet to fuel up my vehicle there... next time, plus I'll have to purchase more beverages!
