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!
