Very good selection for Fayetteville. I'm new here and this place is just as bad as Abilene, KS for not having a great, reasonably priced selection of craft brewed beer. So, again, great selection for the area, but, my word, the cost is outrageous. So, old stand-by brews like Fat Tire shouldn't cost $10 per six-pack. That's bad enough, but when you start looking at their build-a-six-pack prices, the cost doubles or triples. Honestly, Bob and Sheree, I can't abide by that sort of gouging. Good luck.

Not a bad place, decent selection for Fayetteville, but way behind Triangle Wine Company in S. Pines, or Tasty Beverage in Raleigh, both of which are worth the hour drive. Similar to Grapes and Hops, both apparently use the standard F'ville sliding "military pay scale" to base pricing, i.e. you'll pay the premium price. Nevertheless, if you're on that side of town, it's worth checking out.

Bob and Sheree's was my go to beer store for the past three years or so. As far as customer service is concerned, they do a very good job in assisting you in any way they can and are always offering samples.

The selection there is fairly decent as well. It's the largest I've seen in the area and they are very good about placing orders for you.

The low rating is due to the prices. Recently, I started shopping more at Harris Teeter and I will take the limited selection there with cheaper prices any day.

All-in-all, if you can afford the higher price, I recommend Bob & Sheree's, but for a better value, just drive down the street to the grocery store.

Recently moved to Fayetteville, and there really aren't a lot of options when it comes to craft beer. This one is closest to where we are living, so I tend to frequent it the most. The store is definitely leaning more heavily on their wine portion, which is surprising to me because every time I've been there, 90% of the consumers are in the beer sections. The beer selection is okay for Fayetteville, but if you get anywhere near more beer friendly cities, such as Wilmington, Charlotte, RDU, etc, then the beer selection here quickly seems extremely limited. Extremely, extremely limited. Also, check the dates on these beers. Some are very close to being out of code, if not already passed. The service starts out friendly enough, under the guise of being helpful, but after repeated responses of "I'm just looking" or "no, thank you", the repeated pushing of products gets pretty damn old. Ask a single question about a current beer, whether in regards to distribution or comparison, and if they don't carry that particular beer then they've never even heard of it. Really annoying. Also, I understand trying to move your inventory, but don't blow smoke up my ass about how good a particular beer is, especially after I've already told you I have had it, and wasn't even that crazy about it. Finally, watch the prices. The 6pack prices are 6x the single bottle prices; no discounts for buying a full sixer. Also, I have seen some cases of extreme price gouging, where a short trip up to Raleigh scored me a bomber for under $7 what would have cost me $15+ at this store. You can't tell me that an hour's trip justifies double the price. It's unfortunate that there aren't other options in town to provide some competition and force some establishments to step up their game a bit.

I tend to agree with "Beer Taster" The service isn't great and I too had a run in with the owner about a corked bottle of wine though. very much unwilling to fix their mistake and they have sense of snobbish wine and beer taste. If you want something different then what they pick for you they try to tell you that it isn't as good as the one they picked for you. I think you should stay away! don't go unless you want to help yourself and make that very clear when you walk in the door or they will badger you. Make sure you check all of the expiration dates and check the prices. you could probably get some of the same things at the place on Ramsey st cheaper and they are also willing to order things for you. Selection wise good but everything else not so much! Prices are way too high probably in some cases 2 to 3 dollars more expensive Also don't get the owner talking she will keep you there for hours.

I love this site because because I can vent when I need to so I will. I paid $15 and change for a six pack of fullers london pride at this place then I got it home and found it was three months expired well no wonder at that price they can't be selling them all that fast. I did call and complain and they blamed it all on the distributor couldn't have anything to do with the price tag right. They did give me a free six pack but they were out of Fullers so I got a $10 six pack of flying dog instead wich is about $2 or $3 more than a fair price. One last note I got the impresion when I walked in that that this place is a wine shop that just happens to sell beer. It also has a very musty dirty basement like smell at least when I was there. Bottom line I will never go back I will stick to the place on Ramsey st.
I forgot to mention when I was their there cooler was broken and I talked to someone else who used to be a regular and they said that happens a lot just thought it was worth noting.

After walking in the door, the beer coolers are on the far wall, past the aisles of wine that take up most of the store.

I checked the freshness dating on many of the bottles and they were all good...but some were nearing their best before dates. The employee at the time also assured me that they rotate well.

One of the employees told me that if I needed any help he would be glad to help me. I didn't really need any help with beer selection, because I have had pretty much all of the beers they carry at one time or another. We did discuss when they would be getting some higher ABV beers in. From what I gathered in our wandering discussion he was knowledgeable about his beers.

Selection was decent, the second best I have seen in town. The employee told me they had some 250 beers, but it looked more like 125-150 to me. A good selection of micros, including a few from NC. They also had a beer from Buffalo Bill's that I had never seen anywhere else in state. One of the coolers had a selection of bombers, including a couple Rogues and a Higland beer...as well as some imports from the UK. You can buy singles of any of the beers they carry.

The place was pretty expensive. For example, somewhere around $4.50 for an 1845 and $10 for a six pack of Highland Brewing beers.
