Conveniently located on Hwy 105 just off of 321, Peabody's is the go-to place for those of us who live in the hinterlands of Ashe County. I've been to many beer stores in my life, several much larger than Peabody's. However, this place certainly stacks up with the best of them.
All the local breweries are available but the best thing about a store like this is the availability of seasonals that you won't find in most grocery stores that have a small selection of craft beers.
The staff is exceedingly friendly and, from what I could tell, knowledgeable. The prices are a little steep at times, especially on beers that you can find at grocery stores. However, if you want a greater bredth of good beer, this is the palce to go.

My favorite beer store in the Southeast! Most knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff I have encountered, and they always seem to remember me. When I stopped by on my birthday last year, Chris was nice enough to find a bomber of something really special for me. And Benny is always very helpful at distracting my wife with wine whilst I peruse the beer. As a big Olde Hickory fan, they always seem to have plenty of what I am looking for. Hands down the best I have found in NC, and always a mandatory stop when heading up to Beech!

I have never stepped foot in their brick and mortar building but on two occasions they have hooked me up via mail, and once for a case of a big bottle, (and one that was very special to them!). Check them out at all costs and cheers to them for their customer service and appreciation to the craft beer world!

Emailed Chris, the beer manager, before my visit. That was a great decision.
Drove up from Hickory one night after work because Chris said "you won't regret making the drive." He was right. Greeted by him at the door and shown around the entire place. He and two other employees talked with me for nearly an hour as I shopped and asked questions about local goods. They knew everything any beer store employees should know about the products they're selling.
Service was perfect. Selection was great and thoughtfully curated. Lots of global beers mixed with a great variety of US craft. The atmosphere was really cool, too. Boone, being a mountain and college town, just has a great vibe. Peabody's fits in perfectly.
One of the most highly recommended stores I've visited. Going back this week!
