Are you kidding me? My jaw just dropped when I walked into this place. Looks like a run-down gas station from the outside, but inside, hands-down the best beer selection I've seen in NC. I won't go into brands, as others already have, but basically every beer from the eastern US was here, as well as local NC specialties, and plenty of German, Belgian and other foreign beers. They are also cool with you breaking six-packs. As the guy at the counter chuckled, I basically made a 30-dollar six pack, with legendary stuff I've never seen in person, but have heard of. Definitely 5-star selection here.

I think you have to be a hipster to work here. Besides an abundance of hipsters, the place is cool.

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