AMBIANCE - I love the feel of all this magnificent beer in a convenience store environment. Once youíre past the bland exterior, it is a beer wonderland. SERVICE - Helpful when prodded, personable always. SELECTION - I mean...this is about as perfect as it gets, so it deserves the highest rating. Walking through Samís, you are assaulted with an unthinkable amount of choices. The only thing that can stop their stock is distribution restrictions. I truly believe they would try to stock everything if they could get it. VALUE - Youíll likely spend a lot of money here, but not because the stuff is priced too high! OVERALL - What more can I say, Iím really glad I live only 25 minutes from Samís.

I love this place. The ambiance is divisive for folks, Iím sure, but I love that itís just a quick stop (or in this case a Quik Shop). The staff know their beer, and theyíre nicer than a lot of folks assume. GREAT selection and they do everything they can to get everything they can. Definitely a must-visit if youíre from out of town. If youíre in town and donít know about it... then you donít like beer.

Samís is absolutely ridiculous. First off, it is literally a gas station convenience store and sells 2% gas station bullshit and 98% craft beer with literally aisles and aisles to peruse. Loads of Allagash, Bear Republic Ballast Point, Unibroue, Dieu du Ciel, Rogue, Bells, Founders, Nogne O, Mikkeller, trappists, random German and English things. You get super cheap glassware to match with the beer you buy!! I have come into Samís with a tasting group and racked up a $250 tab easily. Yeah, itís that awesome. Also, the guys that work there know just about everything about beer so ask them questions! Just not dumb questions.

I walked into this little place and was just floored at the selection and the pricing. They were clearing out Wild Dog Saison and Victory Saison for 3.99. Great service and selection. Could break up any sixer for a single. I was almost ready to make a uturn and return. KIck Ass store.

Hey I canít complain. This might resemble a hole, but they have the goods. I left, only to make a uturn and go back for more.

Probably one of the best beer stores in NC, even better than Bruisin Ales in Asheville, imho. Good advice from the friendly staff. Was looking for local beers not available in my home state, and found plenty. Only problem was that I could have gone broke if I bought everything I wanted.

Visited last week while in town. Awesome selection in an unsuspecting area/building. Nothing fancy, which is fine by me. As soon as I walked in the staff asked if I had been there before. I had not. They gave me about a 2 minute tour which made sense for the layout. HUGE selection of bottles from all over the world. Great experience.

stopped into Samís on a trip to Raleigh... Samís is not your normal beer store - it is essentially a gas station / convenient store with a boat load of awesome beer.... coming from GA, I was thrilled to be greeted with Founders, Thirsty Dog, Moylans, Bells, Ballast Point, Hoppin Frog and rarities such as Black Albert, Pannepot and more. The selection is top notch... the employees seem to know there stuff and the overall pricing was average. They do allow you to break six packs, which was great since I canít get Founders at home.... highly recommended indeed.... just go in willing to drop some $$.
