After countless trips up the mountain to visit Peabody's it has become obvious to me that this is the best beerstore I have visited by far. The staff are knowledgable and freindly, and the selection is unmatched. The service I get here is unmatched anywhere in any kind of store. I have burned countless gallons of gas and wore out three sets of tires and one vehicle driving here to get beer. I would reccomend you do the same.
I made my first trip to Peabody's tonight and I must say I was impressed. I was not expecting such a selection. There was easily twice as many micro's in this store as any other I've been to. They have a selection of cigars and a huge selection of wine as well. The staff was friendly and knew a good deal about beer. The prices of some stuff was a little high but this place would be well worth a road trip. I will go back to this place in the future. The staff also advised that they could order anything if it is available in NC.

This is my home base for beer purchases. In the High Country this is *THE* place to go for the procurement of high gravity ales, as they have made it their personal mission to get something new every week. Peabody's also carries virtually all of the nationally distributed microbrews, plus a large selection of the regional and local brews. Every month the owner puts a few select brews on sale at a discounted price, so be sure to stop in at least once a month.
They also have their own beer, Peabody's Appalachian Ale, that is a nice session ale permanently on sale for $20/24-bottles (with tax).

I really love this place. This is the best place in Boone to get beer. Its also convenient if you stay at the Hampton Inn because Peabody's is directly across the street. It is a four lane road but isnt extremely busy most of the time. I stopped by on the 28th and then again the following morning to take some quality brews with me on the road.
Since NC has changed the alcohol laws it seem as though the selection has tripled. I was last in here about 1 year ago and didnt remember such a selection. They have all beers. I was dissapointed in two aspects: Only two types of Barleywine and no Double IPA. Great selection otherwise.
They also have a great selection of wines but I was there for the beer. Most beers are located in both coolers and on the floor.
The prices are very reasonable. Boone isnt a cheap town and the prices in Peabody's are cheaper than most prices I have seen elsewhere in NC and SC. Definitely check this out if in Boone.

Peabody's is an oasis in the beer wasteland of NW North Carolina. In an area of the state known for dry counties and BMC swill in wet ones, this store is the place to go if you live within a 1 hour drive of Boone. They carry a large amount of micros from NC and beyond. The stock of high gravity beers is increasing weekly. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They also know and love beer, which means you won't have to deal with someone who doesn't know what a Double IPA is.
If something is available in NC, they can get it. Definitely give this place a visit if you're in the mountains.

Visited Peabody's while on vacation in Boone. I was pleasantly surprised upon entering. Extremely comfortable atmosphere with a dimly lit old wooden house feel to it. I'm not sure as to the selection at other places in Boone but I would assume they have one of if not the best selection in town. The gentleman that was working was very eager to talk beer with anyone and was knowledgeable in all areas of alcoholic beverages. AlexJ and I purchased some Mash House Hoppy Hour IPA and some Sweetwater IPA. Both were excellent scores that we cannot find in Charlotte and I will definately return the next time I am in town.

Peabodies was a pleasant surprise. I went there to deliver some kegs of Peabodies Appalacian Ale, a beer that we brew just for this store and nowhere else. I figured that if this place has it's own private ale, it must be a decent place. I wasn't dissapointed.
Although on the small side, there sure is a lot of selection in this place. There's an extensive wine selection that is quite impressive. They have more beers than most other stored in NC. They have all the various regional brews like Cottonwood, Edenton, Mash House, Duck Rabbit, and some of the other mountain region brews. They had a nice selection of West coast brews, plenty of English beers as well as other international craft brews.
Prices were fair, I left with a 6 of Avery New World Porter, a 4-pack of Flag Porter (a superb English porter), and a few assorted singles. While restricted by our retarded 6% alcohol cap, Peabodies still manages an interesting selection. Definately worth a stop if you're in Boone.

This is a gem of a store in the heart of the beautiful, North Carolina, Highlands. I stopped by on the evening of 10-15-04, and again on the morning of 10-16-04. Even constrained by North Carolina's 6% beer limit, the proprietors(Will and Kevin) do an exceptional job in providing a memorable beer experience, with friendly and knowledgable service. Very nice selection of American microbrews, with an emphasis on southern and North Carolina, breweries like Cottonwood, Highlands, Sweetwater, Weeping Radish, and Dogfish Head(they carry the 60 Minute IPA). Other American micros include Wolavers, Otter Creek, Left Hand, Brooklyn, Troegs, and several others. They stock all the Rogue line(under 6%), and had growlers of Dead Guy Ale. They even have a house pale ale, Appalachian Pale Ale, brewed by Cottonwood, and I was presented a complimentary bottle. Peabodys really shines with their selection of English, German, and some hard to find European brews, like French farmhouse ales and a couple of Dutch oddities I've never seen in the Netherlands. The staff recommended a new German arrival, Reutberger Dunkel Export, which I look forward to sampling and reviewing. Their stock is very fluid, and their website is outdated. There are several singles available, so I didn't find their policy of not breaking sixpacks to be a problem.
The highlight of my visit was on Friday night(10-15-04), watching the patiently bemused staff deal with an inebriated customer, dressed in a bathrobe, whose credit card wouldn't permit him to purchase a half case of Bud.
Excellent store, great staff. This store would likely rate all 5's, but for the state's 6% limit. The store actively supports NC's Pop The Cap effort, with brochures and info easily located.

I was in Boone for the weekend with the family and stopped by this store on the way to the hotel. I was expecting to get some local NC brews and was amazed at the selection they had. I know its NC so nothing is over 6% but I could have spent all our money and returned home for the night and been happy. Wife would have probably killed me, so I bought a case worth of different beers. I will definitley return in the future. Anyone going skiing in the Boone area its worth a stop. They have a list of the breweries they carry on the website.
