Barley & Vine is tucked away in a shopping plaze off Duraleigh. It's a rather small shop but does use about half its available store space for craft beer. The selection is small, but good. They don't carry any beer that's lackluster. You're allowed to break six packs for a small mark up, they have a good selection of bombers, and a small cooler with some cold products. They also have four taps dedicated to craft beer. They currently have St. Bernardus, Duck Rabbit Milk Stout, Paulaner Oktoberfest, and Brasserie Dupont Pils. There's a small bar to sit at and when I was there they had the NC State game on the TV. Quaint atmosphere, great service, decent beer selection. It's worth checking out if you're in the area.

I stopped in about a week ago to check this place out as I live only about 5 minutes away. When I walked in both owners were there and I told them that this was my first time here. They gave me the rundown of the place and explained to me what they had on tap (Founders BS, Porter, Centennial, Scrimshaw Pils, and Lost Coast Great White). They offer their draft beer in pints and half pints which I think is fantastic because if you just want a quick beer while shopping the half pint is the way to go. Great prices on the drafts, $2 half and $4 pints. I checked out the beer selection as I drank my beer. The selection is small but of very high quality. Examples include DFH Burton Baton and Palo, Stone, Founders, Rogue, Highland, Great Divide etc. After I picked out my purchases I sat down at the bar and spoke with the owners. They are from the area and very excited about this opportunity. They even said they were surprised at how well the beer side of the business is doing noting that there seem to be many people in the area that are very beer knowledgeable and are seeing a lot of repeat business. They were saying that they would be looking to expand the beer selection in the coming months per demand. They will be featuring a different brewery every month or so on their draft lines, this month being Founders. The only downside I see to this place at this point is the small selection and the hours (they are only open til 7 during the week). Aside from that I think they have a great place and a unique idea for the area and they will continue to do well. I would much rather support the independent business with the personal touch than buy my sixers at Total Wine!

Stopped in while out and about in North Raleigh. This is kind of a cool little place, but the selection was a bit disappointing. The big draw for this store as far as I'm concerned is the fact that they have beers on tap, for you to drink while shopping or while watching some college hoops. They had 3 founders taps, and a few other interesting taps. The bottled selection of beers is where this store really hits a wall, it isn't bad by any means, it's just not very large. They had maybe 20-30 different beers in six packs and bombers. They do allow you to break sixers, which is nice but there is a markup. The prices were decent on some beers, and extremely high on others (Rogue Mogul Madness was $12.99 for a bomber, it should be $6.99). Overall a cool little place, but they really need to add to the bottled selection for me to stop by more frequently.

11/22/10 edit- The beer selection has improved in quality if not quantity, they are getting some rarer beers that I haven't seen many other places in Raleigh (Stone Lucky Bastard, Founders Nemesis, Bell's 25th Anniversary, etc.). Also the service at this place is really very good, they are always courteous and helpful and they will set items aside for you when asked.
