It looked like a gas station, and then I walked in and the Heavenly Chorus cranked up. I wandered around the seemingly endless collection of beers for forty-five minutes, and never even got to the wine or the cigars.
Awesome selection, super that all bottles are for sale individually, (except ones you'd have to destroy the package to get at, e.g. Abita) with casually-cordial service that's happy to chat if you wish, but will leave you be and let you explore without pressure.
106.65 miles from my place to Sam's... but it's worth a road trip, even these days with gas prices what they are.

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!
