I’ve loved this place since I first set foot in it. The smoke is not an issue now as it used to be, but yes it smells like tobacco. It’s a pipe and cigar shop!
Their selection of craft beer is just incredible for such a small place. Many of the beers you find there have already been aged for several years before finding their way to the shelves. Check your labels, you might just have found a rarity!
Beer and Cigars galore. Lots of cool Belgian beers I didn’t see in other shops. If you don’t like Cigar smoke then cross your fingers the place is empty as people can smoke in most parts of the store it seems. They stayed open late for us to browse which was very cool. Solid prices it seemed.

quirky little house packed with goodies. parking has improved quite a bit since my last visit. service was the best i’ve ever encountered. prices are great. wish they’d ditch the tobacco, but otherwise, this place is fantastic.
Originally reviewed: 1/25/12. I have wanted to visit this place for as long as I have been on this site, and finally got a chance to swing by today. Like others have noted, the signage for the place isn’t the most obvious, so I drove right by and had to turn around. The store is set in an old house. When I pulled up in the back of the place, there was a ring of chairs in the grass filled with guys smoking cigars. Ahh. What a wonderful aroma to my nose. Nice tobacco smell when you first enter the store, as there is a huge walk-in humidor to the right as you walk in. The beer is sort of scattered about with stacks of cases and sixers smattered around. Though the majority of the beer is to the left near the back. In the very back, there’s a room dedicated to wine, which is nice as well. As for the selection, this place has by far the greatest selection of Belgian brews in the area. I was amazed at the variety of Belgian beers they carried. Many of which I hadn’t seen anywhere else around. There’s one small cooler section that carries a good amount of 12’s and 22’s, as well as some kegs. I didn’t see any growlers at all. The corner of the "beer section" is dedicated to domestic craft offerings, of which they had a decent selection. Grabbed a bottle of Old Rasputin XIV and a cigar and I was on my way. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Incredible place! In a grey house just off Spring Garden near the hippie grocery store. The humidor is AMAZING! and so are the brews. I really like the fact that you can pick up a can/bottle of anything from any six/four pack that interests you. No problem. Super knowledgeable staff. A small but diverse selection of brews. They got the good stuff.

Doesn’t look like much on the outside, but this is a neat little place! Service is absolutely top notch! When I informed them that I only came through Greensboro occasionally, they said if possible to call a few days before my next trip and tell them what I was looking for; if he didn’t have it he would do his best to get it. The overall selection used to be a little limited, I think primarily due to space, but is constantly improving. Ask if you don’t see what you’re looking for. I found out that not everything is on display and they may have what you want in boxes in the back.
I love this place. As a local I really appreciate what the owner is offering, which is Belgian and several bigger American Craft beer. The selection of Belgian beers is by far the best that I’ve seen. Their selection of sours is phenomenal. The owner is so cool that he actually called his distributor in the middle of his lunch when I stopped by, because I mentioned how much I enjoyed Cantillons. He called to see what else he could order.
I visited this location a recent trip to Greensboro. Upon looking outside it did not appear that this location would be that good. However upon entering and going to the back, I noticed that they carried quite a nice selection of brews and quite a few I had been looking for. The cigar smell was actually pleasant when I went inside (I don’t smoke). This might have been because there were only two gentlemen in the store at the time in the lounge area. The employees were very nice and chatted with me for awhile and made some suggestions on which other locations I should stop at for some hard to find brews. They also had a VERY nice glassware selection on the top of the shelves. This place is definitely worth dropping in to check it out.
