Stopped in here this morning on the way back to Georgia upon the recommendation of several BA's. From the outside, is doesn't really look like much of anything. On the inside, it's truly a fine place just about any BA would enjoy perusing. Bell's, DFH, Founder's, too many to try and think of off the top of my head, really, were all well represented. There were also many nice imports, as well, such as the whole line of J.W. Lee's Barelywines, a few Fantome offerings, Des Rocs, lots of usuals and several things I had not heard of before. Just a spectacular selection, in my opinion, and as if that weren't enough, they'll let you break 4/6pk's which I thought was a huge plus. I'll certainly visit this place again on my return visits to Raleigh/Durham.

Literally one the best beer shops I've ever been to. Stopped by at least a dozen or so time never had a bad experience with them in any way. Very easy to find. Any time I cross the state line this is the first place I want to go. Awesome staff and even better selection. This is a must if you love beer or are even new into the craft beer scene.

Sam's is a great place to go for the best selection of beer around. The guys are very knowledgeable and can easily make suggestions for things you like. I never have any issue finding what I need, even when it comes to limited releases. They also have a good bit on tap, which they serve in a pint glass you get to keep. I would easily recommend this to anyone in the RDU area or anyone that is passing through in search of quality beer.

Awesome place. Beer Heaven. Great staff, very knowledgeable. Answer any question have, and know layout of the store. Definite must try. Easy to get to. Reasonable prices. Great atmosphere, always punk rock playing in the back ground. Event days are awesome as well.

Amazing beer store. Chock full of beer. Huge variety of imports and domestics.
Looks sketchy from the outside. Inside feels chaotic. Takes a couple trips to get used to because although the store is divided into sections: imports, domestics, and locals, the sections are not labeled.
Staff looks like a punk rock concert, has a wide knowledge, and a mercurial demeanor: sometimes helpful and friendly, other times standoffish and snotty.
Prices are fair. Very few rip offs - a couple deals. Beers on tap in store (that you can drink while browsing) priced as steals.

I've lived in several states (and the 4th largest city in the country). This place amazed me with it's superb selection and friendly staff. Many of the people shopping there were true beer lovers who were welcoming and not snobbish. I will definitely shop there often and bring people there when they come into town.
