Back in April I ran in the Tar-Heel 10 Miler in Chapel Hill and did a little exploring after the race. I met up with some running friends from the Big Boss Brewery Run club who were meeting at a new bottle shop called Beer Study for a little post race celebration. I was pretty beat after running 10 miles and was looking forward to enjoying a cold beer and sharing stories about the race.
Beer Study is tucked away in the little brick store front on Graham Street just off Franklin Street. It is Chapel Hill’s very first bottle shop with in-store drafts. They have a great rotating draft selection that features both local brews and quality beers from across the country.
The shop also has an extensive selection of bottled beer that offers something for just about every type of beer drinker. I tend to favor local beers (which they had represented well) but it is nice to have the opportunity to explore other quality craft brews from other regions too.
I loved that beer study has seating and a small bar to hangout at while sampling different beers. It makes for a great hangout and provides a lot of interaction between customers and the staff. I understand that customers can even order food and have it delivered to the shop so they can have a bite to eat while enjoying their beer.
Beer Study is a great place to chill with friends, try new beers, and simply enjoy hanging out. They even have a foosball and shuffleboard table located in the seating area in the front of the shop. I had a fun time there on my first visit and look forward to stopping by again the next time I am in Chapel Hill.
