Wandered around here prior to the Durham WBF. Amazing selection! Don’t let the appearance fool ya - top shelf stuff here, including vintage beers. I bought a 1999-2005 J.W. Lee’s Harvest vertical right off the shelf! Prices were pretty reasonable overall, and the staff was helpful without being up your butt.

I know that Jamie (magjayran) works here, but I never got to meet him sadly. Service was ok, the dude behind the counter left me alone. Very friendly after talking to him, but i think he had more peircings in his face than the store had in beer selection. Just joking, this guy was awesome! Was very cool with me just putting stuff on the counter to buy after a few minutes of browsing. An awesome store, they had alot of stuff, all of the alalgash beers just no Four, which I was really hoping to find. New Jolly Pumpkins - check. This place hs alot of beer, and its a gas station so you would almost never anticipate that was going to happen. Too bad I couldnt meet Jaime, dunno what he was doing tonight. Other than that, really cool place that I will visit next time I am in the area.

Most of the guys working there are extremely knowledgeable - but a couple seem barely interested, so your experience will depend a lot on who happens to be working. Great selection, good monthly deals with the $15 lifetime membership to the discount club.

This is the coolest gas station/car wash that I’ve 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. It’s just off the Durham Freeway near Duke University’s 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.

DrBayern  (39) Morehead City, North Carolina | February 4, 2006| Updated May 2, 2007
One of the better selections that I’ve seen in NC. A little disorgainized, as you’ll 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 isn’t about ambience, but then I’m more interested in selection than fancy surroundings, and selection is what this place is about. It’s right off the Durham Freeway, so it’s quite convenient if you’re passing through as I often do. I suspect I’l be stopping here quite a bit in the future.

If you’ve read one review of this place you’ve read them all, but I’ll put my $.02 in. A hole-in-the-wall kind of place. A nasty gas station with class. A beer drinker’s peep show locale. That’s the impression you get. There’s 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 I’m going to buy beer, I’m going here. I could smell the cashier 10 feet away, people coming and going, all sorts in and out, but 1 thing in common--everybody’s there for the beer.

As has been said, doesn’t 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. It’s hard to believe from looking at the outside of this place that you’re going to find hundreds of different beers inside. Lots of the new high gravity Belgians are here. Has good prices too.
