4.6/5  rDev +2.9%

Most massive beer store I've ever been to. To be fair, much of it are enormous palates of Budweiser cases.

But still, the craft beer selection is pretty vast. Roughly 4 aisles (so maybe 8 long shelf-walls) of unfridged bombers and the occasional sixers.

They carry pretty much every Trappist beer except the Westies. Hundreds and hundreds of great beers. Reasonable price.

The staff seemed somewhat knowledgable, but I didn't really talk to them enough to gather the extent of their beer geekery. The cashier was too lazy to put those little plastic fishnets over my bombers to prevent them from clinking/chipping the in the bag. Other than that, they seemed pretty nice.

Saw some glassware too, but didn't really check them out.

The place gets my high recommendations.

FIrst of all the staff is amazing. They are friendly, knowledgeable, beer fanatics and way over the top helpful! They had my head spinning with the selection available. I found some De Cam Lambieks just sitting in their fancy wine chiller. They threw out all the wine and stuffed it with amazing sours and belgians (nevermind though, because they're wine selection is ludicrous, too). The selection was truly overwhelming. Sierra is really friendly and she enjoys talking about beer. Wes is truly a gentleman. He is patient, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about beer- exotics and rarities. He hosts tastings and he never leaves anyone out! They've always got time for everybody. It's not so bad having to work out here in South Carolina so long as these guys are around. Prost!

Nice selection of Belgiums and Lambics in the walk in cellar. Four aisles of craft brews in singles and multi-packs. Also has the usual giant selection of Buds and American by the cases. Usually have 10 taps for Growlers...and usually a wide selection for anyone's taste. And don't forget to check out the small singles rack up front towards the registers...it sometimes houses singles you cannot find elsewhere.
Most of the staff is knowledgeable...aside from the cashiers who usually couldn't care less. I'm certain that the cashiers are the only place that Greens lacks in the customer service department.

This is the place where, after drinking 'beer' for 30 years, I finally discovered what real beer is and learned to love it. Their twice to three-times a week tastings regularly include brewmasters from the best regional and national breweries from the Southeast to Maine to Washington to anywhere that amazing beers are brewed. The brewers will spend all the time in the world talking to anyone who shows up. They recognize how special Greens is and actually listen to and stay in contact with the customers they meet And these brewers often bring special batches unavailable anywhere else in the world just for the incredibly lucky folks who know and love Greens and attend the tastings. Their 24 tap growler station fully rotates more than once a week, and the Beer Gurus Wes and Joseph never fail to guide and teach beer lovers of all tastes and experience. They'll even change out a tap on request if they have a special beer in the cooler if you simply ask if they have it. Greens has stoked the fire for beer lovers in South Carolina. And thanks to their innovation and effort several spectacular breweries have blossomed across South Carolina and in Columbia making the area a virtual beer heaven.

Note: I tried to keep this review low-key and held back on how I really feel for this place!

favorite beer store in SC, partly cause its my beer store. wes and joseph do a great job with any questions you have. have a nice large inventory and a solid grolwer station. carry all locals and a nice little back "cellar" for your belguims and lambics. if your in the area stop by it will be worth your time.
