Spent a day in the mountains with my family and made it a point to stop by the famous Peabody's. As I walked in, I was promptly greeted by the guy behind the register and asked if I needed any help. Good service already. The beer section is in the back right side of the store, past all the wine. First thing I see is a nice rack of vintage brews. They had a good selection of aged beers at fairly reasonable prices. The beer is organized well, with a nice Belgian section, NC section, European section, and a large section of coolers with chilled singles, bombers, growlers, and sixers. Very extensive selection. I'd be hard-pressed to not find something I'd want there. Some of the prices are higher than I'm used to, but some were actually lower. I was approached by the aforementioned employee, and asked again if I needed some help. We chatted beer for a bit. I'm really glad I stopped. Definitely one of the best stores in the state, and by far the best store in the area.

[11/7/12 Edit] - This is a place I always stop by when in the area, but this time I got to talk beer with Chris for a bit, and what a pleasure that was! Great guy and excellent businessman, that some of the other "big" beer stores in the state could learn quite a bit from. I was actually here as he had set aside a few brews for me from his cellar, but of course I couldn't leave without grabbing a bunch more off the shelves. This store continues to amaze me as they carry so many more offerings from breweries that I just don't see anywhere else. It is well-worth the extra time and money to drive up here. I will make this much more habitual. Thanks, Chris!

This place has so many amazing beers it blows your mind. They have obviously been around for a long time and it shows with their selection. They know what they are talking about and their beers are so good.

OMG!! Pretty much sums it up for me. Got lucky just spending time in Boone for a few days and had to drive by on way to and from our room. Knowledge ain't much unless shared. Chris and Kirby shared! Never been to a store with anything close to the selections at Peabody's. Well done.

They had a lot of uncommon beers from around the world, a large selection of Belgians and sours. Prices were slightly above than average for the area, but not outrageous. The staff seemed willing to help and knowledgeable about their current stock. It certainly seems like this would be the place to go to find something you've never heard of before.

If you're in the area it's most definitely worth a visit!

I travel all over the eastern US for work and peabodys has one of the best selections of beers I have seen. The staff in particular Kirby was great. They will see me every time I come up to this area and I will advise other people to go there. It is worth the trip even if it is out of the way from where you are going. People of Boone you are lucky.

Awesome. Chris hooked it up with some great Western NC brews as well as with something out of the cellar. Can't wait to get up there this year for their annual cellar sale!

My favorite bottle shop period! Always has plenty of quality beers in stock and a nice variety of ciders for the lil' lady. GReat place to get local and NC beers also. The growler station is an awesome addition. The service is outstanding and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
