If ever there was an example of not judging books by covers, this is it. Sam's is an old Exxon station that looks just like countless other southern gas stations. Even opening the front door, it looks like any other "quickie mart". It's only if you look to the right, past the counter that you notice something is amiss.
There are two additional rooms built on to the main building. There is a bit of wine and a few cases of cigars, but most of the space is given over to beer. And what a beer selection!
A huge selection of Belgian and English beers, a nice large cooler section, one for microbrews, the other for the mass produced stuff (hey, they are 2 blocks from Duke). They have just about everything from Highland, Duck-Rabbit and Carolina Brewing Co, as well as Carolina Brewery growlers (representing NC well!). There are always big selections of the biggest names in the craft beer world as well ... as long as it's legal to sell them in NC.
My only gripe is some of their prices ... they sound like they are a bit higher than other stores in the area. However, with that kind of selection, it's well worth the occasional visit. Too bad the wallet can't handle more frequent trips!
