Unless you are desperate, don't bother. A few Belgians (11.2's only) that were $1-2 over priced. One or two forgettable micros.

I asked if they had any more micro brews, and the cashier said they used to, but that they had changed owners recently - ouch. In his defense, he did apologize, and say that he thought the owners had made a big mistake.

I picked up a Chimay Blue (11.2) $4.99, Rochefort 10 (11.2) $7.49, Delirium Nocturn ($3.99), and a Westmalle Tripel ($5.99).

I probably should have been more patient and gone to One-Stop, oh well...

Not the best selection, but for those beer starved people like me in Western NC, this is another option to drive to in order to get beer over 6%. Highlights of their selection included Stone Ruination, Dogfish Head 90 Minute, Celebrator Dopplebock, and singles of Rodenbach Grand Cru and Westmalle Trappist Tripel. Its nice to know that I'm an hour away from buying a few world class beers. They could definitely expand their beer selection, and I am sure if more people went there they would devote more space to beer.

It's located not far at all from the One Stop that most folks in the area know about (Same exit 31). Located near East Tennessee State University. Staff was very friendly, and asked if there was anything that I wanted that was not currently in stock.
