As the locals in Durham, NC steered me to this oasis of great beer near the Erwin Road underpass, a couple of miles east of Duke University, I found the very favorable descriptions were very much true to form. I walked in and slowly shuffled around the place in an effort to ferret out the nuances of the store. Not only were the store's employees very helpful in guiding me around, but they were very easy with their answers.
The store seems sectioned off in odd ways with the addition of wine and cigars, but it was their great collection of local and national brands of ales and beers that hypnotized me for a long time. Breaking up six packs to try something was not a problem for the store and remarkably the store had some of my local beers from NY too (Blue Point, Brooklyn).
Armed with an array of local NC brewed beers, I checked out for far less than I expected, as I picked up a samples of French Broad, Duck Rabbit, Triangle, and Lone Rider. I made a mental note to return to this great store when I can and will pick up several cases before leaving NC in a few weeks.
