Samís is awesome. Always have a large selection of good beer from around the country/world. Yeah, it looks like it would only have Bud and Ojo Malo from the outside, but they have it all (at least compared to other stores in Durham). Usually friendly service, and so close to my house!

You get out of your car and think, "yeah right this dumpy little gas station is going to have the best selection in the area". Then you walk in and pass the "normal" gas station rows, and POW. You enter the world of beer, they even have crappy mass produced beers. My favorite part is you can break any 6-pack up, if you just want one for tasting. Will definately be back.

Visited Oct 06. All the ambiance and service you can expect of a gas station quick-stop, but donít let that dissuade you...they have one of the better selections youíre likely to find in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area. Lots of neat treasures to stumble across, scattered about the back of the store. Some things might be a bit old, and lightstruck bottles are possible in some cases (from fluorescents, not sun), so some care is required, but overall this is worth the drive.

First went here about a year ago during a holiday break from school. Was very impressed with the selection, they already had so many great beers just months after the Pop the Cap campaign made beer over 6%abv available in NC. Service depends on who is there, some of the clerks know a lot about beer and will give reccomendations if you sound interested. Small, but nice selection of proper glassware. Always a plus. Iíve met Jamie and have enjoyed chatting with him. Wish the location was better, but cant complain about whats inside.

Wandered around here prior to the Durham WBF. Amazing selection! Donít let the appearance fool ya - top shelf stuff here, including vintage beers. I bought a 1999-2005 J.W. Leeís Harvest vertical right off the shelf! Prices were pretty reasonable overall, and the staff was helpful without being up your butt.

I know that Jamie (magjayran) works here, but I never got to meet him sadly. Service was ok, the dude behind the counter left me alone. Very friendly after talking to him, but i think he had more peircings in his face than the store had in beer selection. Just joking, this guy was awesome! Was very cool with me just putting stuff on the counter to buy after a few minutes of browsing. An awesome store, they had alot of stuff, all of the alalgash beers just no Four, which I was really hoping to find. New Jolly Pumpkins - check. This place hs alot of beer, and its a gas station so you would almost never anticipate that was going to happen. Too bad I couldnt meet Jaime, dunno what he was doing tonight. Other than that, really cool place that I will visit next time I am in the area.

Most of the guys working there are extremely knowledgeable - but a couple seem barely interested, so your experience will depend a lot on who happens to be working. Great selection, good monthly deals with the $15 lifetime membership to the discount club.

This is the coolest gas station/car wash that Iíve ever been to. The reason: the huge beer selection that takes up most of the real estate inside the store. I have driven by this place on the way to work for the last 7 months and had no idea it was such a beer retailing juggernaut. Itís just off the Durham Freeway near Duke Universityís east campus. The staff were very helpful. They have a good number of Belgians in stock in addition to macros and micros from around the country. Mixed 6 packs are allowed.

DrBayern  (39) Morehead City, North Carolina | February 4, 2006| Updated May 2, 2007
One of the better selections that Iíve seen in NC. A little disorgainized, as youíll find the same beer in three or four different locations. Staff pretty mcuh left me alone ot browse, but was quite helpful whenever I asked about something. This place certainly isnít about ambience, but then Iím more interested in selection than fancy surroundings, and selection is what this place is about. Itís right off the Durham Freeway, so itís quite convenient if youíre passing through as I often do. I suspect Iíl be stopping here quite a bit in the future.
