Simply an awesome selection, especially considering that we're in a backwards, 6%-max state. Front of the store is really no different than any other convenience store in Durham. Junk food, sodas, etc. In addition to loads of beer, they sell out-of-town newspapers, cigars, and a lot of wine. Coolers are full of six packs from every microbrewery available here (saw today they just got Avery in stock). One cooler full of individual imports and micro 22oz bottles. Oftentimes have killer deals on certain beers, and case discounts, too, which is good, since regular prices are a bit high. Only reason for not getting a 5.0 on quality was the large amount of swill beer and kegs available for the frat boys at Duke down the street. Staff seemed fairly knowledgeable, not to mention some of the cooler people I've met since moving here from Oregon. By far the best selection in the city.

It's Sam's and they are definitely one of the best beer spots in NC and possibly the US.
