    Are the capping fees in NC as ridiculous as they are here in VA? I ended up paying $2 more per bottle last night because I purchased a bottle from the restaurant store rather than from the tap.

    I’m not sure what you mean by “capping fee.” I’ve only bought beer on draft or from the bottle list at a restaurant. DId the restaurant have a separate store to buy beer and drink while you eat?

      Yeah, you know the store. It is a resturaunt and bar in which you can also buy beer to take home (awesome selection of craft from around the country). Yet if you buy on of the said beers, even as a single, they charge you a “capping fee” (equivalent to a corking fee I guess) to drink the beer in the restaurant. I purchased a $2 single bottle, the charged me $4 total to drink it in the resturaunt. They cited ABC laws upon my complaint, is this something only in VA and not NC?

        In my experience in restaurants/bars in NC, bottles are already marked up whether you plan to drink in-house or at home. For example, at Flying Saucer in Raleigh, a bottle of Rodenbach Classic is $6. Once you purchase it, you can drink it in the restaurant/bar or take it home.

        On the other hand, in some bottle shops, single bottles are not typically marked up (and you still have the option of drinking in-house or at home).
