Took a detour here on the way to Cherry Grove SC and are really glad we did. Great selection and service. We were mainly looking for NC beer and some Bells Two Hearted that we can not get in NY. There was a really good selection of NC beers. We could not have been happier. Got a case of the Bells, bombers of French Broad, Olde Hickory, Stone 16th Anniversery, tried an Aviator?.
Prices were all reasonable when compared to what we would have paid at home. Cheaper actually.
The guy that helped us could not have been more friendly and knowledgeable. Wish we asked his name, cause he was great. The store started to get a little busier as we were finishing up, so we kinda wanted to get out of the way. He will probably remember us as the Heady Topper couple.
It is small, but not lacking in selection in any way. Well worth the small detour for us and we will add it as a must stop on all of our future vacations.

GREAT SPOT IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO KICK BACK AND SLURP DOWN A COLD ONE OR GRAB A KEG OF SOME SIERRA NEVADA FOR YOUR GATHERING. NICE AND INFORMATIVE WORKERS ALTHOUGH SOME COULD ACT A LITTLE MORE LIKE THE CARE TO HELP ME. OVERALL A GOOD LOCATION WITH GOOD COLD BEER.

Was in town for a few days visiting some friends. Headed to the beach on Saturday, and swung by here on our way back out. Location is nice as it is right off the main road that takes you to the beach. Small little shop, that feels a bit cramped if there are more than 5-6 people in there, but that is a small price to pay for the massive selection! Coolers line the walls filled with all sorts of chilled goodies. The center is shelf after shelf of more great beer. It would be impossible for even the most distinguishing of palates to not find something here they would like. The prices I saw were comparable to any other bottle shop I frequent. A couple of guys working there at the time were friendly and helpful. I visited with my wife and daughter so unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to visit the Beer Garden, but next time for sure. Great place that I highly recommend!

This place is a nice hidden bottle shop for a out of towner. Great selection for size of store. You can find some rares here that are harder to find in areas with a larger craft beet following. I walked in and picked up a six pack of hopslam and they had a barrel aged Yeti which is very rare for NC area. So if you enjoy the hunt this place will always have some hidden gems. The two fellas working here were very helpful. If you go then you have to enjoy a beer in their beer garden. I will be frequenting this bottle shop each time I am in the area.

This place is fantastic. There's a wide selection of popular micros ad well as some good hard to finds.
The staff are knowledgeable and helpful and continually made great recommendations. If you're lucky enough to stop by when Anna is working, she'll hook you up with good brews.
Hands down, the best thing about this place is the beer garden. It's so relaxing, and there's nothing like grabbing a good beer and relaxing. If you're in there area, stop at this place. I promise you won't regret it.

Thanks to BA for having this place on the radar. Went to Wilmington on a business trip for a conference, couldn't pass this up after reading about it online. It was pretty easy to find, right after the intracoastal bridge on the right. Rather small place but had plenty of selection. Grabbed a Uinta Detour Double India Pale Ale, a six pack of Founders Centennial IPA, some Left Hand's, Terrapins, and a mixer of Great Divide. Great selection of 22's, where is this place when I vacation in South Carolina!

Very small place, but a great selection of beers for the area. You can find the local NC stuff such as Duck Rabbit and Highland or larger micros such as Dogfish Head, Rogue, and Flying Dog. Also has a decent selection of Belgians and a few obscure things. Was able to pick up some Majahara Imperial IPA, Hercules Oak Aged Imperial Stout, and Duck Rabbit Rabbid Duck Imperial Stout. Talked with owner Jason Adams who was wonderful and made some great suggestions as to other beers to try. Definitely the place to stop if anywhere in the area.
