This place is just a couple of doors down from the, "Olde Hickory Taproom." They have two coolers with nothing but craft brew, and a couple of shelves with pretty much the same selection. When I entered the lady asked if she could help me, but she is pretty much a wine person as this is a wine first place. The cool thing about The Hickory Wine Shoppe is that they have no restrictions on breaking up six packs. All beers are labled both for sale as sixers or as individual bottles. Over all this is a decent place to pick up some beer to take home. Gail's has a better selection, but the Wine Shoppe is easier to find(as it is downtown) and lets you mix your sixer how ever you want.

A- That of a wine shop with a cooler and four or five shelves of beer. It is nice during the summer to grab a brew out of the cooler and enjoy it outside at a table with an umbrella.

Q- Good.

S- Very knowledgeable on wine, decent knowledge of beer, but willing to help.

S2- Just a cooler and a few shelves, but decent stuff that I don't see other places.

F- N/A

Value- Maybe slightly over priced, but again, a chunk of the stuff they have, like offerings from Emellise, aren't available other places around here and are expensive in general.

Stopped in here for Hickory Alive ( a friday eve effort to draw folks to the square= music, some food & beer ). This place may be my permanent catbird seat. As long as you stay in front of the store & don' t wander you may sample good beer & wine; other side of the fence= over priced Yuengling & Fat Tire

Based on the ones I tried they take care of their stock freshness-wise

Service was attentive, they are making an effort beer wise, but their knowledge isn't near where their wine focus is, duh...

Let me just say anyone with Penn, Founders, French Broad, Avery & Allagash will always get some of my business!

10% discount for sixer purchases, on premise consumption costs were higher.

Gail's or Harris Tetters are better stocking up options, but give this place a shot

Center of town on the square, 3 doors down from the tap room.

I was not expecting much from the other reviews and was not disappointed. One cooler and one shelf unit. Did have a few Pisgah and French Broad bombers. No singles available. Some Victory, Stone, DFH, but really only the basics from them. The selection is nice, but just doesn't go very far. Worth a stop if you are at the tap room, but it might be a very quick stop.

Seemed to have a very nice wine selection, though. My wife was happy.

This place is only a few doors down from the Taproom. It is not a destination spot but if you're already at the Taproom perhaps it's worth a visit. There is a rack of beers and a cooler of the same beers chilled. There is no where near the selection of Gail's but this place is wine first and foremost. The one plus to this place is the willingness of the owner to bust sixers. You get to try more for less investment. I saw nothing here I could not get a couple miles down the road. But if I want a mixed sixer, I'm going here.
