While in North Carolina for vacation, I went looking for local brews, but came up empty until I checked out this supermarket, where several varieties of beers from Top of the Hill and Carolina Beer & Beverage awaited me. (The Top of the Hill brews were in cool cans.) The place also had many craft beers from NY state (why?), including several Ommegang beers and some from the Mendocino brewery with NY plates. Apart from those, I spied some not-your-run-of-the-mill Sam Adams selections and a smattering of imports along the lines of Chimay and Paulaner. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few nice choices too.

Service? Well, it's a supermarket, so don't expect to get your questions answered, and the line at checkout was a little slow, plus they had to do price checks on two of the six packs I bought, but it wasn't a big deal in the end.

In this area, it's the lone place to pick up good beer to go, so if you're in the area, go.

Located near the juxtaposition of 24 and 17/70 (i.r. right in the middle of shit). Not bad price or selection for the area. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find any good beer within 50 miles of this joint.

Pretty much all of the beer are in the grocer type cooler. Dogfish, Brooklyn, new Fat Tire and even some Chimay and Smuttynose. They have a bit of everything. For the area, it doesnt get much better. Prices are decent, service sucks, but nothing too overhwhelming. However, in the beer wasteland known as the Crystal Coast, this is a bit of an Oasis.
