Located in a town center type shopping center, bottle revolution seems tone another bottle shop inspired by the Bruisin’ Ales revolution and that’s a very good thing. Lots of singles on the shelf organized by region and seasonality plus they have 4 taps so you can imbib and browse. They also have a patio area for increased awesomeness. I didn’t get a chance to talk to the owners but they were very friendly and eager to help out. Another damn good Carolina botle shop it is.
Very nice place. Tons of bottles... American, local, English, German, Scandinavian, and other foreign micros. Absolutely everything is available in singles. In my book, that is a prerequisite for being a "great" beer store. Rarities and unusual stuff. Draft beer is available by the pint for while you are shopping but apparently state law doesn’t allow grower fills. Located in an upscale shopping center. Parking is OK. Prices are reasonable. The owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Excellent store and I will be back.
This is a cool bottle shop in an upscale shopping plaza. There were more 12 oz. bottles and more importantly, more cans, than many up and coming craft beer shops. Every thing is available by singles. That’s a great idea to try new beers, but I feel like there should be a discount for buying a 6 pack as everything here is marked up. Maybe there is a deal for a 6 pack and I just didn’t see it. The clerk was helpful and knowledgeable. The selection was quite extensive and it was easy to find several beers that I wanted, but I didn’t see anything crazy rare. I recommend this place.
Dedicated parking right in front, all spots were taken even after going around the block on a Friday mid afternoon. Newer mall area. Not even close to the number of labels as Tasty Beverage. I had questions about the selections and got no help, dozen or so clientele and one guy working, just trying to ring people up. You can breakup any six pack. Small tap selection right by the register.
Stopped on here before leaving town. Great selection of brews, both ones that are available regionally, as well as locally. Staff was very friendly. Mostly singles, but 6 packs scattered around the place. Growler fill station had wonderful looking beers on tap that I wish I could have grabbed before the 5 hour drive home.
This cozy beer store has the feel of a boutique. They have a formidable selection of local brews, including quite a few I have never heard of. Their selection of craft brews and imports will blow your mind. Service has no equal - the man not only pointed me towards the local crafts, he even checked to see which ones are not currently available in Georgia. What a guy! Prices seem to be competitive. Another must if you visit Raleigh.

Finally stopped in to BR for the first time this week, and as the other reviews indicate it is an absolutely crucial addition to the Raleigh scene. There are several joints I’ve habitually checked in on from time to time over the years, but I have to say that this is the first destination joint I’m aware of. Great selection overall, with tons of seasonals and special, and an impressive locals and imports section (tons of Evil Twin and Mikkeller in particular). Ted is a right-on guy, very helpful and pleasant to chat with. Conveniently located too, right on Lake Boone either on the way in or out of town.
Smallish store located in another modern and characterless shopping/residential complex typical of the Triangle area. Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and there was no none else in the place so the service was good. Selection is a nice mix of regionals and crafts with almost all available in singles. Pricing seems in line for the area.
