Located 1/2 way back in the Depot building, across Davie St from the Pit. Free parking, at least during the day.

Bigger store than I expected, with lots of metal rack shelves. Shelves on the left by the front door hold some of the new arrivals. Bar in the back with 6 drafts going.

Cooler section on the right with quite a nice variety of cold selections. Growlers from Craggie, Green Man, and Aviator available.

Most beers were priced a bit higher than other stores, but the selection makes up for that. Did find several priced significantly lower than the competition, too.

Easily the best beer store in Raleigh.

I recently ventured here for the first time and was not disappointed. I walked in and was greeted by an incredibly vast selection of bottled beers. I decided to try one of the drafts they offered, it was difficult to pick which to try, they all seemed like they'd be very good and I had never seen or tried any of them at other places. The beer I had selected was delicious. The service was great and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall I had a very enjoyable time here and plan to go again.

Quality of the beer and huge selection is why I'd say this place needs to be checked out. Prices were, to me, really reasonable as well. I found a few things that sold out in my area long ago (in from VA) and were considerably cheaper - $15 for Blushing Monk vs. $18 or $19 around home for instance. Nice items on tap and a place that will let you open any bottle sold in the store to have there while you shop. I like that.

I definitely got the feeling that they were very busy even though it was not crowded at all. I felt like asking a question or two made me feel like a burden so I really just went with what I knew I wanted without asking or branching out. Just not exactly what I'm used to if I'm spending $100+ on a shop visit.

Prices were great, selection was great, service at the bar in serving beer was great. Would have been nice if someone offered to help me navigate the store a bit better - that's all.

I had stopped here several years ago when I was in town for business. I was in town again today and made a co-worker who was travelling with me stop to pick up some bottles for the trip.

The selection was well organized and extremely easy to search. More importantly, when I asked for recommendations, the guy who was helping us was awesome. He pulled 5 beers that I have not had and 3 of them so far are really good. I appreciate going to a place and having someone know their inventory well enough to provide some suggestions. Selection was very impressive especially because I was from out of town and did not have access to some of the options here. Great belgian and sours selection.
