Another one of those places that the first time you see it you can’t believe it is so highly rated. Best selection in the Triangle and the best prices too. It has been helped by the recent influx of phenominal beers available in North Carolina (Stone, Founders, Hoppin’ Frog, Jolly Pumpkin). Worth going out of your way to make it to this store.

Surprised that I had not yet rated my local, which is happily also *the* place to buy beer in the Triangle. As every other review says, it does not look the part. But who cares, since whats important is the superb selection inside. Every craft brew available in NC is available in Sams, with the exception of some local only stuff from Asheville (and hell, you do even see a stray bottle of Pisgah here from time to time). The list would simply be too long. Suffice it to say that they have all the locals and regionals, all the top shelf domestics, and TONS of European stuff, including fine Germans, hardcore Scandinavian (Mikkeller, Nogne, etc.), and a really vast Belgian selection. Wine and cigars if that floats your boat, glassware for everyone, and what looks to be a modest selection of jerky. The prices are good, comparable with other locals, but it is all here, faster and in greater quantity than anywhere else. Plus, the service rocks hard. Where else can you get guys discussing the merits of

I’ve never rated a place before, but considering this is now the only place I buy beer, I figure it’s time. When I was in college, this was the only place I knew of where you could buy gas, kegs, pickled pigs’ feet, and hardcore pornography. Now, the porn is (mostly) gone, and in its place is the largest selection of beer I’ve ever seen. If it’s distributed to the Triangle, Sam’s probably has it. The prices are fine and they do a great job of rotating in and out seasonals. The staff definitely knows their beer, and if they’re in the right mood will even help you out with suggestions if you ask. If you don’t, they leave you the hell alone...perfect!

They are great. I go there almost weekly if not more. The guys working there in the morning are great. They hook you up if you are a loyal customer. The no doubt have the biggest selection of beers in all the area. I must for anyone in the Durham area!

As everyone else has said it’s just a little hole-in-the-wall place by the railroad tracks, but inside is beer heaven. Stopped in on a trip from Terp land to Southern Pines and was pleased to see plenty of beers available that we can’t get in MD. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Plenty of craft beers from around the country and hardly any of the Budmillcoors crap, YAHOO!!!!!!!!. Definetly worth a stop when you are in the area.

AMBIANCE - I love the feel of all this magnificent beer in a convenience store environment. Once you’re past the bland exterior, it is a beer wonderland. SERVICE - Helpful when prodded, personable always. SELECTION - I mean...this is about as perfect as it gets, so it deserves the highest rating. Walking through Sam’s, you are assaulted with an unthinkable amount of choices. The only thing that can stop their stock is distribution restrictions. I truly believe they would try to stock everything if they could get it. VALUE - You’ll likely spend a lot of money here, but not because the stuff is priced too high! OVERALL - What more can I say, I’m really glad I live only 25 minutes from Sam’s.

I love this place. The ambiance is divisive for folks, I’m sure, but I love that it’s just a quick stop (or in this case a Quik Shop). The staff know their beer, and they’re nicer than a lot of folks assume. GREAT selection and they do everything they can to get everything they can. Definitely a must-visit if you’re from out of town. If you’re in town and don’t know about it... then you don’t like beer.

Sam’s is absolutely ridiculous. First off, it is literally a gas station convenience store and sells 2% gas station bullshit and 98% craft beer with literally aisles and aisles to peruse. Loads of Allagash, Bear Republic Ballast Point, Unibroue, Dieu du Ciel, Rogue, Bells, Founders, Nogne O, Mikkeller, trappists, random German and English things. You get super cheap glassware to match with the beer you buy!! I have come into Sam’s with a tasting group and racked up a $250 tab easily. Yeah, it’s that awesome. Also, the guys that work there know just about everything about beer so ask them questions! Just not dumb questions.

Hey I can’t complain. This might resemble a hole, but they have the goods. I left, only to make a uturn and go back for more.
