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.

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
