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.

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.

If youíve read one review of this place youíve read them all, but Iíll put my $.02 in. A hole-in-the-wall kind of place. A nasty gas station with class. A beer drinkerís peep show locale. Thatís the impression you get. Thereís something dirty, yet provocative about this place. You walk in and in the back there it is, a very substantial collection of quality ales and lagers, which one will have a hard time tracking down in this part of the world. You gotta love a place like this. In fact, if Iím going to buy beer, Iím going here. I could smell the cashier 10 feet away, people coming and going, all sorts in and out, but 1 thing in common--everybodyís there for the beer.

As has been said, doesnít look like more than a typical gas station, but has a nice stock inside. Most of it is sitting out on shelves, although some of it is in coolers. Staff was friendly, but not particularly beer knowledgable. Has a fairly strong stock of local micros, good selection of belgains, decent selection of other american micros, though not stellar. Definitely worth a stop, even if it is a bit of a drive.

This place has the largest selection of beers that I know of in the triangle. Itís hard to believe from looking at the outside of this place that youíre going to find hundreds of different beers inside. Lots of the new high gravity Belgians are here. Has good prices too.

This is honestly the best beer store Iíve been to. When I arrived, they were just unloading some of the new high-alcohol beers which have just become available in NC. From the outside the place looks like just some old convenience store with gasoline pumps and a carwash; but on the inside... beer drinkersí paradise.

Sketchy looking place. When we pulled up I had to ask my friend if this really was a good beer store. Lots of stuff inside...well, as good a selection as is allowed in a 6% state.
