A great beer/wine/liquor super store. The liquor store is separate from the beer and wine. As a beer drinker I go here almost solely for that with an occasional wine selection. Huge selection of beers of all types. Prices are fairly reasonable and the service, regarding finding things is excellent. I like this place for a large stock up. They seem to have growler fills too, but I am not positive as I never tried it but I see the taps. This is strictly a store as CBX and not a hang out such as Taps or Homegrown. For what they do and offer they do it great. Let's just say those of us that live in the Charleston Metro area are blessed to have a multitude of places to go for craft beer. Some focus on shopping some on restaurant, some on drinking and some on a little of everything. I really hate to rate nyone over the other. They all have something to offer. I am a regular here too as well as other places I have reviewed. This store is great and the staff and cashiers are nice people. Come in and load up. Or go to Taps or go to CBX. But go!!!

If you’ve been to one of these places before, you probably know what’s up, but I’ve been here enough that I thought I should review it. The atmosphere is typical of these large chain liquor stores – a warehouse of liquor, wine, and beer. Here they have two long aisles filled with packs and singles of beer, plus a half-aisle of limited bombers, fridges of local offerings and other stuff, pallets of seasonal 6 packs near the front of the store, a nice growler station, and beer scattered throughout. The selection is really very good and prices are comparable. The main things that set other places apart from Total Wine are quality and service. I know that they don’t rotate their selection as often, so you may want to stay away from IPAs that aren’t flying off the shelves. As far as the service, some of them are knowledgeable and interested in beer, but most of them are just regular old supermarket workers that happen to work at a supermarket filled with alcohol. I’ve had lots of problems with newer beers not ringing up at the cash registers because they’re not in the system yet. Some employees handle it very well and figure it out. Others…well, let’s just say I once was waiting 10 minutes for them to figure out the situation.

Nevertheless, this isn’t a bad place to get beer. I’d rather support locally-owned bottle shops like CBX, but if I’m in the area or if I’m looking for limited stuff that disappears from CBX in minutes, I’ll swing by.
