Now this was definitely the highlight of my trip. I walked into a great store with a fantastic selection of brew here. Now I would still have to say this was a wine store, but the selection here is top notch. They had pretty much everything I could have wanted, and numerous past seasonals and imports that I just saw nowhere else on my trip. There was a bit of a price discrepancy here as they were a bit pricey, but heck they had the goods no one else did, so supply and demand in full force. If you have to make one stop in the area, this is your stop. They pretty much have everything you would need and then some, I even found some of last years wake and bake, which is just awesome that it was still there. Great store and really the kind of place that I look for and search out. This is defiantly your one stop in the area.

Yeah its pricey, but it does have a great selection of beers. Also tons of wines for the winos out there, but the beer is whats important. To me the staff was helpful, and steered me in the right direction. Often, when the beer selection is good, I get paralyzed, knowing I can't buy them all and don't want to leave anyone out. The staff steered me in the right direction. Located on highway 105 heading towards blowing rock, this is a good place to find beers. I'm sure I will visit frequently. There are the token macros, but thats to be expected. look toward the back corner; there you will find what you came for.

A great place to find uncommon beers. Excellent, knowledgable people working there. It's almost hard to get out without a suggestion even when you try not to speak. Singles available aside from the vast selection they have available. Big selection of wines as well. I would recommend this place all day. Soon after I became of age this was definitely my top choice in Boone. On one side they have tons of six packs and on the other it's 22's and other bottles. Of course there are other places you can find good beers in town, just on a smaller scale. For your best bet in the area, Peabody's will definitely be up to par.

On a recent visit to family in east TN, I made my usual beer run to Asheville, NC in hopes of scoring some of the recently released Highland Cold Mountain. There was none to be had in Asheville, so I called Peabody's and not only did they have Cold Mountain, they were also open until Midnight, so I had plenty of time to get there. This was my second visit to Peabody's, which is a real oasis, it has a beer selection at least as good as some of the best stores in bigger cities in the area. I was also looking for Duck Rabbit Barleywine, only found one six pack in Asheville, Peabody's had as much more as I wanted. They also have a good selection of imports and US craft beers from beyond the region. I have been happy with the service, they are always very attentive and glad to answer questions or make recomendations. If Boone were a little less out of the way, I would consider Peabody's to be as good a NC beer run destination as Asheville. If I'm not in a hurry and it's daytime, it is a beautiful area to drive around, the Blue Ridge Parkway is only a few miles away.

Stumbled across this place while driving through Boone, and was quite surprised.
quality: As much as can be gauged from a single visit, everything seemed to be fresh. Most of the six packs were refrigerated. The majority of the shelved stuff was high ABV items.
service: Helpful, knowledgeable staff.
selection: Great selection. A range of NC east coast goodies that I didn't think were distributed this far west. Awesome selection of JW Lees Harvest, including all 4 of the "aged" series (calvados, etc.). Great mix of Belgians too.
value: A little pricey, but that's about what I expected up in the mountains. There was a nice selection of monthly sale specials.

Was kind of surprised by this place when the future mother-in-law stopped at Peabody's on our way to Linville so I could pick up some beer for the week.
Much more extensive selection than I expected. The regional beers were kind of lacking. I asked about it and the fella working said they were waiting on a shipment from a distributor. Being a holiday weekend some of their stock had run low too. But still, I would qualify this as a destination beer store the selection was that impressive. Everything I look at too seemed to be in date (or dusted at least). I have a feeling the extent of the selection is only limited by the amount of space they can devote to beer (they also have a decent looking wine selection).
The staf was pretty good too. One guy approached me asking if he could help when he saw the shock on my face at finding such a decent selection. Chatted with him a bit and he apologized for running short on some of the local beer choices. Also, the guy at the counter answered some questions I had about the local beer bar scene and we compared homebrewing notes. Will definitely stop there again on my way to Linville next time.

Visited here after taking the kids to Tweetsie Railroad in nearby Blowing Rock. Nice selection including Left Hand, Lost Coast, J.W. Lee's vintages, DFH, SN, Avery, Weyerbacher and some others. Nice selection of imports also. Unfortunately, they were out of all Terrapin and Edenton brews when I was there. The guys working...who were very helpful...blamed it on the distributor (supply issues). Store isn't that big and the beer aisles are tight and some of the coolers were hard to get into because of a huge display of Yuengling right in front of them. The prices seemed a bit higher than what I saw at the Earth Fare and Lowes in town. I would stop here again on my next visit after I hit the other two places first though.

Well, I'm glad I waited to rate this place. The first time I was in there was a Monday I believe. The clerk explained that this day is the fartherest away from any delivery dates and that the stock would not be a good as usual. That said, on a return trip I was very impressed. One of the largest Belgian selections I have seen, including all trappist (except Westy) and De Dolle beers.
The selection of microwbrews was great. Lot of West Coast and Colo.: Lost Coast, Mad River, Left Hand etc. They had a lot of cool bottle conditioned English and Scottish Pints I hadn't seen before. Cool German beers, Uerige Doppel Sticke, Aventinus Eisbock and some doppelbocks that seemed new. The prices were a little high, but for the selection I think it's worth it. The staff seems to know what's going on too, the guy behind counter sounded like he talk about beer forever.
I didn't like the fact that I couldn't mix my own six from the entire stock. But, they also had at least 100 different cold singles to mix from and all of the warm High-Grav stuff could be singled-out. Let's see, they have their own beer Appalachian Ale, pretty good actually, and like 20 bucks a case.
Definently worth the trip. They had a lot of glassware too.

Peabody's lost a notch in selection and gained a few notches in service. The prices however are extremely high by comparison to almost everywhere in the state and in the area. A bottle of beer that had been seen elsewhere for $15 and overpriced at $19 was $23 at Peabodys. A 4 pack that was purchased elsewhere for $10 was $11 there. As mentioned the selection slipped a notch from my last visit. They have more beers and perhaps it is distributor issues, but many beers seen elsewhere in the state are missing on Peabody's shelves.

Peabody's is a nice store with a great selection. When I walked through the door I was thinking if we ever change the NC alcohol laws this will be a place of wonder. My opinion changed when I inquired (as the sign said) about removing bottles from six packs. I was told they could not sell individual bottles and did not have room for them on the shelves. They guys there still were nice and helpful, but they aren't gonna take the prize without working a little to make a sell. They lost quite a few bucks of business by not allowing me to take 3 or so beers from several sixers.
No matter, the quality was good, and the selection was pretty good even with our laws. I'll be back, but probably only if I desire a sixer, and then probably only after checking the Lowes Foods on 421 about a mile or so away...

A buddy of mine went to Peabody's, came back and told me about it. I figured it couldn't be that good so I went the very next day. It was that good and more. This is the first time I've given all 5's in a review, and Peabody's deserves it. When you go in you first see wine, but then a walk to the back of the place leads to the largest beer selection I've ever seen. They have cases upon cases stacked on the floor. Beer on shelves and several coolers stacked full. They have a large selection of High Gravity Beers and many regional and national micros. They also have a large selection of imports. When a new seasonal comes out Peabody's is one of the first to have it. Ex: They had several of Highland's Cold Mtn. Winter Ale. Peabody's has become one of my new favorites and I will make make many more visits. When vacationing in Boone Peabody's is a must visit and is worthy of a road trip.
