I finally made it over to Bottle Revolution and I'm sorry I waited so long. It's not close for me but I pass by that way on occasion. They have a solid selection that's well organized and displayed nicely. I was very impressed but they could use a few more Belgians. The woman in the shop was helpful and knowledgable. And the shop is in a great retail complex with some good dining options. I wish Bottle Revolution was closer but I'll make it a point to get by on a regular basis.

Located on LB Trail across from Rex and practically next to the day surgery center.
Large wooden shelves go all the way around the medium sized shop. Ted has done several organizational things that I like very much. On either side of the entrance, there are shelves featuring NC beers (on the left) and seasonals (on the right) as you come in. He has a small cooler section with all the can beers he carries, and if you call ahead he can put together a take out cooler with beer to go, in case you are headed to an event at the RBC center or CF stadium. A nice perk.
Carries a good selection of NC beers, large selection of micros, and covers imports pretty well. The store has a nice feel and vibe to it.
Well worth a stop if you are passing through.

Very nice location for a bottle shop of this caliber. Plenty of parking and a nice sign to find easily.
Walk in and you can see right away that this is one heck of a bottle shop. A few coolers on the immediate left w/ bombers and local growlers. Aviator had at least different choices, their IPA and Tripel.
Prices were not marked on everything, but the owner was there and quick w/ pricing, knowledgeable and willing to offer up his honest opinion on beers I was not familiar with, which I appreciate.
Plenty of Imports as you head further into the store, with a full cooler of just canned offerings....something that makes perfect sense, but you don't see often in craft beer stores.
More rows of domestic bombers and 750ml's to the far left and some cases on the floor. Nothing collecting dust in this place. Looked to me like the perfect amount of inventory.
Pricing was very reasonable and all of the NC beers were 10% off for Black Friday. I grabbed two sixers and 5 bombers and spent $47 and change. Very pleased.
Small collection of glassware as you walked in to.
I will be back to this place every time I visit for sure....a well kept gem.

This is a very nice addition to west Raleigh, and the triangle beer scene in general. The owner Ted pack a lot of beers into the relatively small space he's working with, and they get the vast majority of special releases that come to the triangle. Every beer they sell is available as a single which is really nice for mixed six packs, however the beers are priced individually as well so you end up paying a bit more if you just wanted a six pack of one beer. The service has always been prompt and friendly, and they have nice beers on tap for a fair price. The selection is very good, but not as plentiful as Tasty Beverage Co, however Tasty Beverage Co's singles selection is pretty limited by comparison. I will say that this store is quite popular, so limited release stuff sells out VERY quickly which kind of sucks but there's nothing to be done about it. Overall a terrific store that has become my go to spot for beer in west Raleigh.

The atmosphere was actually kind of cool. Everything is on plywood shelves and stacked around the place. The setup is actually really thought out and makes sense to me. They get everything rare and sought after from the US. Decent amounts of Mikkeller, Founders, and Oskar Blues. I will say that things move very quickly here. Im not sure if its because of shipment size or popularity, but the big guns dont sit around.
The Belgian section was very solid, but nothing out of the order. I wouldnt go here for foreign jobs, but American bottles and locals are loaded here. Actually in competition with Sams.
They just installed taps yesterday, and had 4 solid taps on. Mokah and Sculpin were on.
Ted, the owner, is a great guy and good friend to have.

Is this the perfect beer store? It could be. For me, to be top tier, the place needs to have some beer on tap for sampling while shopping. Bottle Rev has 4 taps which more than fits the bill. The only nit I can pick is minor. I think the layout is a bit confusing as to where to find what. The service makes up for it though. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The only local place that rates a 5.0 in selection is Sam's Blue Light in Durham. BR doesn't have as much floor space as Sam's, but it's darn close. If I lived in Raleigh and needed a hard to find craft beer, I'd check BR before driving to Sam's. I bet 9 times out of 10, BR would have it. Pricewise, they're inline with what I pay elsewhere. I live in Carrboro and shop at Carrboro Bev and TJs regularly. They're both very good. BR is among the best beer stores I've been in. They have more selection than Bruisin' Ales, Brawley's or Carrboro Beverage. The atmosphere is better than Sam's, TJ's Beverage or BestWay. BestWay and Sam's have a lot more cold beer and better selection than BR.

i was in nc for a concert- i always like to find craft beer stores when i go out of town. bottle revolution was a small store but it was packed to the hilt with beers. i got several pumpkin beers. they didnt disappoint if youre in the area and need your beer fix- definitely check them out.

I was thrilled when I heard that Bottle Revolution would be opening. They are filling the hole of a much-needed beer shop on our side of Raleigh. Located off of Lake Boone Trail, they have a solid selection, a nice informal atmosphere, and friendly professional staff. I was psyched to see that they had a lot of beers that I like, as well as a lot more that I'd like to try. They've got big bottles, little bottles and some great craft brews in cans. The owner was great - helped me to find a new beer to meet a friend's specific tastes. If you haven't checked them out, stop by and see what they've got.

A nice fairly spacious store with a large selection of both domestic crafts and imports alike. Decided to stop by and see what goodies I could pick up that I can't get in South Carolina. Nice selection of local/in state brews. Helpful staff. I am a bit spoiled by the Beer Exchange down here but this store has plenty to keep beer geeks happy.
I noticed they have discounts for tailgating when the hurricanes have a home game, a beer club, and some shop gear. Overall prices where great, selection was definitely solid, service good, nice store/layout. plenty of room to add more beer :)

Great beer store in West Raleigh with a great selection and ever helpful owner. The prices are comparable to other reputable beer stores in the area. It took a couple trips to get used to pricing by the bottle (the concept is simple enough...multiply by 6 for equivalent six-pack pricing) but I've found myself making more variety packs thanks to this structure. Maybe I do end up north of a $12 six-pack on occassion, but I never have anything bad in that mix.
Beer club... that's all I'll say, you'll have to look into this for yourself lest I add to the competition in times of need.
