I went to this place because I was working near the area. The inside of the store is pretty well open; most of the shelves are along the walls and few in the middle of the room. The first impression I received when I walked in was that this was a new store and trying to get started. It was just kind of plain and boring on the inside for a small local store. The selection was OK and the prices were OK. They do sell some glassware. I would say go to this store so he can start getting some more business, I think this place could have some potential.

A fellow BA and I sought out this establishment while returning from a reconnaissance trip in Greensboro. It was a bit hard to find, but I spotted it from the road as we passed it and all it took was a turnaround to get us there. We walked in a with a bit of trepidation, as there were no other cars in the strip mall's parking lot. (It appears to be a fairly new structure, and very few of the shops have tenants.) A grey-haired man met us at the entrance and welcomed us inside. We proceeded to peruse the small (but mighty) inventory, and within a few minutes the proprietor engaged us in a rather stimulating discussion of the various brews we showed interest in. The selection is very nice, with rows of single bottles on the right side of the small room and multi-packs on the left. I obtained a few unusual British ales that I hadn't seen before, as well as a Flemish brown ale and two bottles of perhaps my most cherished Belgium Tripel, the Dulle Teve, a brew we haven't seen in these parts in some time. There was also a small selection of glassware, and I couldn't resist the Scaldis snifter. My friend was excited to find Ayinger's Celebrator, another beer not recently found in our neck of the woods. Prices seemed reasonable and in line with the area. I urge fellow beer lovers to support this small but important shop. It has incredible potential!

Overall, this place deserves to do more business than it does. First off, it can be rather difficult to find as it's in a slow shopping center, but the selection is eclectic, and they have some rarities that you'll have a hard time finding anywhere else. I picked up a four pack of Celebrator, a Brother Thelonious Single, and a Unibroue tulip for very reasonable prices. There were a few lambics, a flemmish brown (which a friend I was with picked up), St. Bernardus, and a number of other excellent offerings. The owner is a nice guy who knows his beer well. Next time I'm passing through, I'll stop in.
