Super solid. Obviously, we love that he allows dogs inside. The game room in the back is great and the its generally good vibes. I appreciate them providing non-alcoholic things and the beer selection (both bottled and draft) is on point.

Venue is decent. Seems people love to go here and pay a minimum of $7 for a beer and get spoken condescendingly to by the bartender with a beard that is so long he has to hold it out of your drink while he pours it. I can't complain too much about the beer prices because that seems to be the going trend these days and nobody is willing to refuse to overpay. That dude is probably the least friendly bartender I've met though. I thought bartenders needed to be nice as a rule?

Very friendly and helpful staff. Large selection of beers from North Carolina and elsewhere. I loved the little arcade in the back! Machines were well maintained and it was nice to hang out for awhile.

Great staff and amazing beer. It was the perfect lunch: sandwiches from Foster’s and Starpoint brews at Beer Study. And as an added bonus my son had a blast in the game room. I wish I had a Beer Study near me at home.

Great prices on bottles to go, good draft selection, amazing pinball machines, comfortable seating, and solid local focused business. Plenty of dogs and small groups frequent this location. They know their beer without obsession or pushing.

Great prices for good beer! There's a cool arcade in the back, a nice sized tv to watch games and movies on the front. The scene is very chill with cool artwork along the walls. This evening they a had a DJ that played a pretty dope set. They allow you to bring in food to enjoy with your beer. They also have a great selection of beer to buy and take home if you don't have the time to sit and chill there.

The beer study is a fantastic place to hang out with friends. They have pinball and air hockey. They have comfortable seating accommodations including, benches, couches and an outdoor area. You can bring your dog. They have a wife variety of beers both on tap and in bottles.

Beer Study is awesome!! This was my first time here and I can confidently state that I'll be back here again and again. They have a cool vibe going with great music and awesome beer! The staff is super nice and knowledgeable and will help you out with tastings or a general knowledge dump. They also have a bottle shop where you'll find great beers. They allowed you to bring food in from outside which is cool!

I have been coming to Beer Study consistently for about a year or so for trivia, and when I just want a good brew. The bartenders are always nice and welcoming, and hands down have the best draft beer selection in Durham. I keep telling friends to come here, and will continue to do so myself for a long time!

Absolutely love Beer Study. My top beer shop in the area for unique and rare beers, plus they brew their own!

These guys are thinking outside the box. I love Durham, and I'm crazy for Beer Study-Durham. We can social distance and socialize! Rent a tent for up to 6 people. You bring the people and food. They will provide the beer and a sanitary environment. Best evening since 3/15/20!! Great way to get out, and be safe! Thank you.

very service oriented during covid-19. Courteous, follow-up with online ordering issues (product sold out during ordering process) very promptly with other great substitute recommendations.

Beer Study is a great place to grab a beer. They're super friendly, whether you're an expert on all things beer or just browsing for a gift. One of the largest tap lists in the area and a great place to hang out since there's great food across the street and soon to be at Beer Study too!

I think Beer Study is the place I most miss during the pandemic. Glad they are making it work, and thankful I can still stop by for some cans now and then. Always feels super safe and considerate, and of course friendly.

Fantastic beer bar. Hipster quality without the pretentious air. Arcade in the back is cheap and everything works. The selection will satisfy every taste and style. Knowledgeable and friendly staff as well as a great selection of four and six-packs. If your favorite beer isn't in a can or bottle fear not for they will can anything you want so you can take it home and show off your impeccable tastes. Favorite spot it all of Durham.

A fun stop to pick up all your local brews or stay and have a pint. Starpoint brewery has fantastic selections and there is a wide variety of other craft beers. Oh, did I mention the full classic arcade in the back? Bring your quarters to play pinball and your favorite classics in the arcade attached to this wonderful establishment.

Amazing beer options! Bring your dog on a leash. Charge your phone. Bring your own food. Bring your kids. They have an arcade. They have a bit of everything. Outdoor seating is available, too! Went to meet some friends after a very long meeting. Great place to meet. Good sound system and a brewery, too.

I live 0.4 mi away and I LOVE Beer Study!! I just moved to Durham last May and this is the perfect location to meet up with new friends or dates. I bring my handsome German Shepard-Chow chow mix, Dean. People always love commenting on his bright blue mat (I'm sure the owners know who I am saying that. It is great enrichment for him to meet new dogs & people, and great for me because I don't feel like a bad dog-mom leaving him at home! Any place that has a welcoming atmosphere, great people and dog-friendly deserves 5 stars!

Great draft beer selection that you can check online via the digital pour app, impressive bottle and can options to take home, delicious nearby restaurants if you are hungry. Also dog friendly. The arcade games in back are the cherry on the sundae.

This place is fantastic! Baristas really know their beers, and have quite a variety on tap or available. One fun aspect is that the beers on tap change in price/cost as the keg gets closer to empty (which is also displayed on the large TV screens).
Fun and open place to hangout with friends. Had no trouble hearing my buddy across the table.

Always a great selection of rotating beers on tap. The arcade is full of classic games that are fun to play. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, and the owner has a pug and that's just makes this place the best

Great selection and friendly staff. I. Like coming here for the atmosphere.
