Until very recently Beaufort NC was a total desert for beer, but things are starting to look up a little bit. Queen Anne's Revenge is a very recent addition to the area. It is a little difficult to categorize exactly what it is, but it is a bar, restaurant and bottle shop. Although there is a lot of wine in the shop, there is also an ample beer selection with a large number of quality beers. I remember seeing several Stone offerings including Sublimely Self Righteous Ale. Other breweries represented in their selection included Smuttynose, Founders, Bosteels, North Coast, Mission, Dogfish Head, and Orkney. Beers were not kept cold, instead you indicate which beer you want and they then put it in a chiller for a few minutes and serve it to you. What was impressive about that was that they were served at appropriate temperatures, not too cold, and some beers might even be served at room temp if desired. There were also three taps which had Loose Cannon, Sam Adams Octoberfest, and Flying Dog Pale Ale. The service was prompt, the food was easily acceptable, but the menu could have a larger variety especially in the realm of appetizers. My friend and I shared a brie, apple and pita appetizer, which was good, and the second time we were there, a pizza. Both were very good and reasonably priced. The big issue I have with this place is their pricing. Draft pints were $5.00 each which is not too bad. For bottles I ordered a Smuttynose Big A IPA, which cost me $5.95, and my friend ordered a Founder's Pale Ale which cost $3.95. This is not too far out of range for fair pricing if you are being served a beer in a restaurant, but this is also what you would be charged if you wanted to buy the beer as part of a mixed six pack. So buyer beware, come in and have a beer, but don't plan on buying them to take out. My rating for pricing is based on purchasing beer in the restaurant, not for the bottle shop. Still this is a big step up for an area which has been a woefully bad place to find a good beer, and I'll definitely be going back whenever I am in the area.
