I must have driven by this place a thousand times before stopping here with a friend who lives in the area. It's your typical gas station on the outside, and inside is a convenience store with a two or three walls worth of coolers and beer. They have your typical gas station sixers, 12-packs, and 40s, but they also have two coolers full of craft beer. Great 4/6 packs and bombers. They have a good selection of locals and imports, as well as popular offerings from breweries with distribution in the area. While here I bought a six pack of Thomas Creek Up The Creek DIPA and a Moylan's Hopsickle.

I was impressed with this places selection, but don't expect much help from the guy behind the counter. He doesn't know craft beer, and it doesn't seem like he cares to know either. The prices were typical, and you can't break six packs, but overall a nice little, hidden gem.

A gas station...yes, an Exxon gas station...not the fancy, gourmet gas stations popping up all over too. Has metal security shudders that cover windows and doors too...

Don't let any of this influence you not to stop...Hopefully this review doesn't wipe out the selection of some awesome, hard to find beers currently in stock.

Service is friendly but nothing to rave about.

3 of 4 walls are beer coolers and a small, non-refrigerated shelf section.

Very good selection of US craft beers. Less impressive selection of imports but who needs imports these days...except Belgium of course (IMHO).

Beers I found here: Allagash Victor, Allagash Victoria, Allagash Black, Avery/Russian River Collaboration, Duchesse du Bourgogne, Ommegang Bier de Mars, several Founders selections, well I think you get the idea.

located in an Exxon

quality: Many many out of date bottles...including some Old Dominion from 2003. The "Raleigh Beer Museum", as I've heard it called, seems to be an apt nickname. Wouldn't really buy a thing there that wasn't cellarable or dated.

service: Nonexistent, in that nobody asked if I needed help. I usually assume average in these cases.

selection: Pretty good selection for sure. I went in for a couple singles of Bell's Java. Much more to be had, including a range of Bell's, some Terrapin Imperial Pils, various Belgians...

Team Beverage is getting in the above 6% beers, but the quality of the stuff in the cold case is awful. I still see six packs that have not moved in two years and to top that off, the prices are higher than most other stores. Buyer beware of the age of the products, only purchase what you know to be fresh!

Team Beverage is located off 401 between Raleigh and Rolesville. You would think it just a gas station. It has many, many beers, but the age of their selection can sometimes be very old. The pricing is not out of line, and many times if you are looking for an interesting beer, you can certainly find one there.

The owners are the same as the Peace Street Market.

This is just a really nice beer store. It's in a gas station that you wouldnt think anything of if you were just driving by. They have 3 walls covered in coolers almost completely stocked with beer. Everything from malt liquor to rare Rogue bombers and the best belgians avaiblable in NC. Almost all the local breweries are well represtented. Really about as good as it gets for a beer selection in a state with a 6% cap on alcohol in beer. I would have to say also they have at least one of the best selections of micro's in the state also and there are many that i've only found at this particular store.
Edit: They have a great selection but you really have to watch out for old beers (and i mean really old...try a 2.5 year old Hop Pocket Pils)...I personally dont buy anything there without a bottling or best by date on it

You can drive by this place while looking for it. It looks like any other gas/grub stop until you walk towards the coolers and browse the (extensive) beer selection. If it is sold in North Carolina (6% ABV limit), you have a great chance of finding it here. Additionally, they seem to be willing to order anything that they do not carry and their pricing is similar to other area vendors. Caveat emptor, you must look at the bottle dates because they seem to have low turnover on some varieties, leaving a few to linger after the brewery had gone out of business.
