Well, I'm glad I waited to rate this place. The first time I was in there was a Monday I believe. The clerk explained that this day is the fartherest away from any delivery dates and that the stock would not be a good as usual. That said, on a return trip I was very impressed. One of the largest Belgian selections I have seen, including all trappist (except Westy) and De Dolle beers.

The selection of microwbrews was great. Lot of West Coast and Colo.: Lost Coast, Mad River, Left Hand etc. They had a lot of cool bottle conditioned English and Scottish Pints I hadn't seen before. Cool German beers, Uerige Doppel Sticke, Aventinus Eisbock and some doppelbocks that seemed new. The prices were a little high, but for the selection I think it's worth it. The staff seems to know what's going on too, the guy behind counter sounded like he talk about beer forever.

I didn't like the fact that I couldn't mix my own six from the entire stock. But, they also had at least 100 different cold singles to mix from and all of the warm High-Grav stuff could be singled-out. Let's see, they have their own beer Appalachian Ale, pretty good actually, and like 20 bucks a case.

Definently worth the trip. They had a lot of glassware too.

This place is great. It may be a touch small, but the quality more than makes up for it. Kirby is super helpful and makes the experience worth it every time I go. They have a cellar selection as well. I find hidden gems there almost every time that I step into the store. Highly recommend if you are in Boone.

I honesty can't imagine a better beer store. The selection is amazing. The people are incredible. The vibe is welcoming and laid back. If I lived in Boone I would go there way too often..but it'd be worth it.

Truly everything that you can ask of a beer store. An absolutely great staff who try virtually all of the beer on their shelves and can recommend pretty much anything to anyone whether they are a craft aficionados or are used to buying cases of light beers from the grocery store. Their selection is absolutely fantastic as well and is constantly rotating which means although your favorite beer may not be there one week, something really good is bound to have taken its spot on the shelf. They also usually have a decently stocked singles cooler and if it's not too full they will pretty much always let you break something up so you can try it first. The only thing I could possibly even begin to comment on is that their selection tends to run a bit on the expensive side, occasionally you can find the beer from some of the bigger craft breweries a little cheaper at the nearby Harris Teeter, but it's hardly surprising for a bottle shop in a tiny mountain town to cost a bit more than average for some of their stock.

My appreciation for Peabody's has only grown as i've gotten more into craft beer, it was the first bottle shop that I went too and the more I stop in places the more it seems how lucky it was that I had one of the best ones in the region just down the street. this is far and away my favorite bottle shop and i'm only sad that I haven't gotten to be a customer here longer!

This place has so many amazing beers it blows your mind. They have obviously been around for a long time and it shows with their selection. They know what they are talking about and their beers are so good.

OMG!! Pretty much sums it up for me. Got lucky just spending time in Boone for a few days and had to drive by on way to and from our room. Knowledge ain't much unless shared. Chris and Kirby shared! Never been to a store with anything close to the selections at Peabody's. Well done.

They had a lot of uncommon beers from around the world, a large selection of Belgians and sours. Prices were slightly above than average for the area, but not outrageous. The staff seemed willing to help and knowledgeable about their current stock. It certainly seems like this would be the place to go to find something you've never heard of before.

If you're in the area it's most definitely worth a visit!

I travel all over the eastern US for work and peabodys has one of the best selections of beers I have seen. The staff in particular Kirby was great. They will see me every time I come up to this area and I will advise other people to go there. It is worth the trip even if it is out of the way from where you are going. People of Boone you are lucky.

Awesome. Chris hooked it up with some great Western NC brews as well as with something out of the cellar. Can't wait to get up there this year for their annual cellar sale!

My favorite bottle shop period! Always has plenty of quality beers in stock and a nice variety of ciders for the lil' lady. GReat place to get local and NC beers also. The growler station is an awesome addition. The service is outstanding and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
