Nestled away in the sleepy hamlet of Wake Forest is a terrific store that has one of the best selections of craft beer in Raleigh.
Donít let the name (Wine 101) fool you---There is a wall full of top-notch craft beer from some of the best breweries that distribute in NC--Founders, Bells, Terrapin, Bear Republic, Southern Tier, Sweetwater and many, many more. They also have a small cooler with some chilled beer available as well.
The staff is terrific, and will special order beer for you if you ask. They are very knowledgeable and friendly.
Does buying beer make you thirsty? Well, you are in luck. They have several taps available, always with some very good selections. Right now they have Southern Tier UnEarthly IPA on tap. You can buy a glass, and sip while shopping or relax at a small table inside the store.
Oh yeah...they also have a really good selection of wine...
So, save a trip to Raleigh and get your beer here...you wonít be disappointed!

Nice wine/beer store in Heritage/WF. Bin2 (rb handle) knows his beer. They have a modest but smart selection. No singles is kind of a downer. Its a small wine store w/ a good beer selection in the outskirts of the Triangle..kind of what you expect.
Prices are probably 10-15% higher than sams but you dont need to trek to durham.
Best part is probably 5 beers on draft..a few limited to enjoy while you shop....if you are nice, growlers of hard to find beers might be available.
