Parking is $5 in the lot right in front of this place, I parked quarter mile away at a half hour spot. Some prices were good others were high. Big variety of beer on shelves and some quality ones. They will not break up six-packs even when asked. Nothing rare, but good selection, and got some help with my list, I would say others ratings are a bit high. Small bar in the back of this place.
Went here for the first time Saturday. I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of inventory, but after a couple walk throughs I started to pick out my beers to take home. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I will go back again next time I am in Raleigh.
Finally managed to drag ass over here a month or two back and was impressed. Nice and spacious (and well used space at that), a woody warehouse feel with bottles and crates just everywhere. Well laid out and organized, good prices, and pretty much anything available in the Triangle appears to be here (more comprehensive than the other Raleigh bottle shops, for sure). Nice taps on too, and really fine service.
If Bruisn’ Ales is beer nirvana, than this is it’s triangle cousin. It hard to beer an old train depot in an old warehouse district for ambience. The deletion was extensive and deep with local, regional, national, and International craft covered. They also have a bar in the back so you can cruise around with a lint in your hand. They guys that work there are beyond passionate when it comes to beer. It’s places like this that make me wish I lived in Carolina sometimes.
I’ve only been here once. The staff was helpful and pointed me in the right direction. Was able to snag a cool beer that I would not have tried. Prices are a few % points higher but still acceptable. I hope to get back soon.
This is a really great place in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. The staff is very helpful, the selection is large, and the prices are as good, maybe a little better than most places. Highly recommended!
This is a great beer store. The people are quite friendly and helpful. The selection is quite nice, and organized very logically; they even have a local section of North Carolina brews on their own shelves. Great stuff.
However, I have two complaints:
1. Not all of the beers they sell are available as singles. I go to stores like this specifically to buy singles, and if they’re not available as such, I won’t buy them.
2. They labels are awful. I like places where you can glance at the label on the shelf and know immediately what it is, where it’s from, and a description thereof. This place just has a hand-written labels. A tad annoying.
stopped in quickly while stopping in Raleigh for 1 night... wish I had more time in there... great bottle shop! taps, lots of bottles, chilled IPAs, hard to find bottles, etc... I’ll be back.

Rochefort 10 at $6.69 is reason enough to stop here, but the fact that you can request any of their bottles that are broken out of six packs to be chilled and quaffed at the bar for the same price is flat out ridiculous. I would compare this place to the Beer Cafe in SF, except Tasty has no corkage fee.I was very
impressed by the number of regulars even though this place has not yet been open for a year.
The owner and his staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, especially a guy named Critter.
