Great rotating, shifting, ever-changing selection of legendary giants and unheard-of secret goodies, stock conveniently separated (sort-of) by style; good selection of full-time beers, and a nice selection of chilled beers to sate the impatient buyer's apetite for that first brew before the new sixer chills a little.

My only negative observation about the place is its inconvenient exposure to the evening sun, which drives up the temperature inside the store and exposes the shelved stock to direct sunlight. Shades, guys. Venetian blinds, curtains, window tint...something.

Prices miraculously on par with the few big retailers offering anything comperable in selection; friendly and helpful fellows run the joint; seem to be lovers of good beer and definitely worthy of patronage.

The good news:
They put up curtains and moved the beer!

The bad news:
After a scrapped plan to relocate the operation, this store closed in mid-September 2008.

This place is great. Located really close to the ECU campus, it's a small store where they have local artist perform and have a nice, solid beer and wine selection.

As an ECU graduate, I wish this store was open while I attended. The selection was better than I imagined this BMC town would offer. Big props to the dude (sorry I forgot your name) who started this joint out and continues to run a high quality store.

I picked up a case of Duck Rabbit, a few mixed sixers of tasties from Avery, New Holland, Coastal Brewing, and others. I also had to pick up a sixer of Bells' Oberon for my BMC drinking friend to learn.

A small establishment which has only been in business for around a year, half craft beer and half wine. The best selection in Greenville NC by far. Most of the selection in on shelves and there are two coolers. Lots of American micros including Dog Fish Head, Brooklyn, North Coast, Rogue, Victory, Magic Hat, Bells, and Duck Rabbit. Belgians and Belgian styles include Chimay, Duvel, Unibroue, Ommegang, Westmalle, and Allagash, but there are plenty more. Richard Faulkner, the proprietor, is always willing to order things if you ask for them(assuming that NC's not so great distributors carry them). His German and English imports could be a bit more extensive, but, again, he can only get what the distributors carry. It's on my way home from work, so I end up buying way more beer there than I should. Two of his latest coups have been the arrival of Samichlaus and Fuller's Vintage Ale. Life can't get too much better here with beer like that coming to town.
