Bigger and better selection of wine, but beer selection is somewhat impressive (in the singles isle). No Service was given and I rated it a 5/10 b/c sometimes I donít want someone coming up and bothering me. If I need help I can ask.

Best place I have found in North Carolina to grab some good brews. Selection is not as extensive as I would like and much of it is stored at room temperature which can alter the qualities of the beer. Not bad for a wine store. Oh yeah, you can get some decent cigars there too. I like the place.

As stated by previous raters this place specializes in wine. However, they do have a fairly decent selection of beer, including a row of non-refrigerated beers and a freezer full of others. There is a good mix of domestics (including local NC brews) and imports. They also have an entire row full of singles, so itís ideal for the beer lover who doesnít mind spnding a bit more money in order to try different beers.

This place has a very large selection of beer. Not as many of the Belgians as I would like - so I go to Samís Blue Light for that, but they have a large selection of German and English beers as well as US microbrews. Donít expect any service though, as most of the workers are only wine experts. On occasion they have a beer to taste along with their wine tastings.

Predominantly a wine store as the name suggests and they do have an insane selection of wine but there is a fairly extensive beer selection as well. Service is pretty good when it comes to wine but I think they donít put much effort into knowing their beer but Iím sure when the 6% law is changed they may hire/train someone to be more beer oriented. Selection is really good for around Durham. However, on more than one occasion I got an oxidized or skunked single. Plus since my drivers license is going to say "Under 21" on it untill 2008, I have to fill out this stupid form verifying my age though my license clears states my birthday. Decent place to get local singles for trades.
