Beer Study is a great hang. Very relaxed. Great service from the attentive staff. Sam's has better selection, but can't hold a candle to Beer Study's atmosphere.

Clearly the premiere stop in Chapel Hill. Nicely located. I found parking literally right in front and it was an easy walk to all my other stops. Plenty of taps, local NC and plenty of other stuff. High quality with rarities. Draft prices quite good for the most part. Flights of 4 offered for $7. Plastic cups, but they gave me some of the more expensive beers in them, so a win overall. Lots of bottles. Locals well represented along with lots of foreign and US stuff. A small selection of wines and meads. No food, but plenty of restaurants are nearby. Low key vibe, comfortable. Bartender was the only employee in the place but was providing top notch customer service as well as all the other tasks. This is a great place, and if I were local I would be here constantly.

Stopped by this place after lunch earlier this week while on vacation. What a sweet place. Wish I had more time to spend there. Nice things on tap. Very knowledgable and friendly dude there. Chatted about lots of beer things, found two Wicked Weed bottles that were sold out at the other place I visited a few days earlier. Had a couple little tastes of things they had on draft. Cool patio area, old school video games set up.

Located on a side street just off of Franklin. Itís in a tiny shopping center but parking is available in front. This place is kind of half bottle shop, half bar. Iím not sure how well the two work together here since its not a big space and the combination feels forced. They had 300-350 beers available arranged first locals and then alphabetical by state which is a little confusing. The strength is definitely in local and regional craft. They only had 2 out 12 shelves for imported craft. I didnít see a lot of stuff I hadnít seen before. I do wish the ac had circulated better. The service was pretty good as one the guys behind the bar took the time to point where everything is. It seems like a cool place to hang out on a Saturday night but itís not a destination bottle shop.

Hole in the wall place lacking in AC which combined with the spotlights right on the beers, is not great for the beers. Has a hipster vibe from the bar area, though folks have their dogs in the store, so it not stuffy by any means. If I were local and still in college, I might hang out there, but its not a destination place.

Nice addition to the local scene. Used bookstore vibe, walls lined with a pretty good selection of craft, certainly on a par with Carrboro Bev Co down the street. What makes the joint are the taps and the fact that thereís so much non-distro stuff represented here: NODA, Pisgah, et. al. Nice place to stop in for a chat, a browse, and a pint.

Thanks for adding, GT. This is a cool new spot right on the Chapel Hill/Carrboro border just off West. Franklin near IP3 and Crooks Corner. GT and his fratboy friends had some trouble finding it and almost gave up but i think heís happy they didnít. Probably the best beer he drank during his bacherlor weekend. Owned by the former "beer guy" at TJís just down the street. A welcome addition to the scene, very laid back, and unassuming. I plan on spending some time and money here. Very nice looking shuffleboard table in the middle of room as you walk in is a very cool addition. Wish I could have stayed longer but had to work the next morning.

New place in Chapel Hill in a seemingly impossible location behind Crookís Corner in between Franklin and Rosemary streets. Next to the tattoo parlor and across from the new Greenridge apartment monstrosity. This is a copycat of City Beer Store SF and a damn good one too. Excellent bottle shop where you can drink inside plus a small, but very well thought out tap list. All special beers from local breweries. Bottle selection also geared towards NC beers. Event Horizon on tap, holy monkey. Staff very enthusiastic about beer, fun to talk to. Itís a small place and you will do well to chit chat with the crew here. Awesome vibe, table shuffleboard in the middle of the room is boss. An amazing addition to the Chapel Hill/Carrboro beer scene.
