DiarmaidBHK summed it up very well, we were very surprised at the quality and quantity of the beer there. I chatted with their beer guy who is the owner ( I think) and he made some great suggestions based on what we bought. From the few places we visited, this is clearly the best bottle shop in this area beyond Asheville.

There arenít a lot of gas stations that deserve to be on this list, but this one is an exception. They have two aisles of craft beer as well a a long shelf of bombers. They also had some coolers with craft as well. The selection included a lot of local, regional and national craft as well as some special releases such as Flying dog Barrel aged gonzo and Brux. Apparently the owner is the beer guy and heís around a lot to give advice which is fairly unusual in general, nearly unheard of at a gas station.

This is the last place I would ever expect a real beer selection. This is a run-down, old gas station like many one could expect in the Smoky Mountains. I saw the familiar country folk going in to buy gas, get some cheap cigarettes, lottery tickets, and BMC. Pretty standard for any gas station in a 100 mile radius. How the rednecks love their gas stations. The strange thing is that the beer selection is pretty damn decent. Nothing was rare or phenomenal, per se, but many local and regional micros were stocked along with some good offerings from Avery, Founders, Great Divide, Lagunitas, etc. etc. There werenít a whole lot of imports, but thatís all right. Since Papouís has let their beer selection go to the wayside, this is easily the place to get beer in Sylva.

This is my favorite place in Sylva. I have been going here for years. Greg, the beer man is a cool dude and is always keeping up with the latest beer. Suprisingly we get a lot of beer that other places donít get, such as Terrapinís Wake and Bake. Just picked up a Moylanders Double IPA. All the bottles are always fresh with no dust on them and the coolers are kept at a pristine temperature. I have probobly spent around $3,500 here. Greg is the man!!

From the outside, this place looks like a generic gas station (a BP). Inside youíll find plenty of big neon BMC signs with the requisite coolers full of BMC products. But youíll also find craft beer... a lot of it. A few bigger US micros and lots of regional beers. They have the benefit of being out of the way so things may be available here that are long gone at other places. Definitely worth a stop if youíre in the area or heading out to Heinzelmannchen.
