I was skeptical of this place when I saw it from the street since it is the size of a small grocery store. The other advocates were spot on. There’s plenty of liquor and a sizable selection of beer, both microbrewed and imported. There was a large quantity of Drie Fonteinen, both the Oude Gueze and Armond & Gaston. They sort the beer with North Carolina stuff at the front and then branch out regionally, nationally, and finally to imports. All but the imports are mostly stored cold. Nobody asked if I needed help, but the staff was friendly.

Vibe: I stopped at this place on a Saturday morning. The beer department is located along one aisle on the left side of the store. There was one cooler that ran along the full length of the store and included all of the domestic beers, starting with North Carolina beers followed by beers from the East Coast and beers from the West Coast. There were some separate racks in the back with beers from other countries, which were not refrigerated.

Quality: Beers were stored out of direct sunlight and about three quarters of the selection was stored in the large cooler.

Service: There was only one other customer in the store (shopping for groceries) so I didn't see any staff walking around the aisles. The only person that seemed to be working was a checkout clerk.

Selection: The store had a very extensive selection of domestic beers and had a particularly good representation of local beers from North Carolina. It had one of the biggest selections that I've seen in the Piedmont Triad area.

We're really lucky to have the Bestway in Greensboro. The service and selection are second to none! If you're going to be anywhere nearby you should make a stop and check the "wall of beer" I'm sure they'll have some of your favorites.

I have going to this place for the last year every time I visit family. Excellent beer selection both the hot new stuff and the great local stuff. I always ask for good local suggestions and so far everything has been great. Beer is fresh, they have regular tastings and the place is pretty easy to find. I must stop if you are in the area.

Picture a smallish, outdated grocery store with an amazing beer selection- a beer selection so comprehensive that its very existence in said store creates a sense of incongruity strong enough to be almost unsettling, in a Twilight Zone way. That's Bestway on Walker Ave in Greensboro.

Man, have they got beer! It's organized by state/country of origin, with NC getting more space than anywhere else- their selection of NC beers is very comprehensive. The refrigerated beer section stretches from the from the front of the store to the back, and seemed to be all domestics- mostly craft/regional with a small amount of space for the big-name AALs. Running down the middle of the beer aisle is a grouping of free-standing shelves for unrefrigerated imports; their selection of German and Belgian beers in particular is just mind-blowing. They fill growlers as well, but I didn't make it past the "wall of beer" so I can't speak to their draft selection. I didn't see any evidence of a mix-a-six option.

Service? Eh, it's a grocery store. The young lady stocking beer made a point to ask customers if they needed help finding anything; that's about as good as I expect service to be in a grocery store. I didn't ask staff any questions, so I can't judge their beer knowledge (or lack thereof). Prices were about what I'd expect in a smaller grocery store: not as good as box-store prices, and a bit higher than you'd pay at a bigger grocery store. The thing is, you'd not find 99% of this beer in a box store or a "normal" grocery store, so I don't begrudge them a bit more per six pack.

If you're in Greensboro and you are looking to pick up a six-pack or twelve-pack of good beer, you're probably wasting time going anywhere but here.

Great local grocery store with a wall of beer. The selection is very good and they will get specialty release beers. They update their beer menus page often which is great when I want to check out what is in stock. They have a growler fill area but you have to use their growlers which is where I docked some points. Overall a great beer place.

Amazing selection! Best in the triad, hands down. Of course you can find rare and very expensive beers, but I can always find something in my price range and haven't had anything but fresh beers and friendly service. Most def worth checking out!

(also worth a look is a laundrymat across the street, pool tales with a bar in the back)
