Not only do they have the best selection in the area, they also have the best prices by a long shot. They often get many rare beers in and have amazing prices on them. The rare beer Thursdays are always great, and amazingly priced. The managers there are also very knowledgeable and friendly. If you have a question they will have an answer for you. You can tell the place is run by a couple of beer geeks that share all of our passion for great beer. My go to spot for great craft beers. The only problem is it is hard to leave there with one or two things because there are so many other things there that i want.

(From notes)

I have to say that the selection here was pretty damn good, but I was hoping to see a bit better of a regional/local selection of brews. In any case, I was still able to find quite a few nice US and European brews that I haven't seen on the shelves in NY/NJ just yet.

The single selection (of 12oz.) could have been a bit better as well, but the bomber selection was pretty outstanding.

I only have the Total Wine nearby this location to compare for the area, but I have to say that Green's was better for overall selection, and plus they do growler fills, which is pretty cool.

My only real complaint is that I wasn't offered service at any point, but then again, I didn't go looking so not entirely their fault. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

This Green's is much better than the one on Assembly. The one on Assembly is more convenient, location-wise, but everything else at the Piney Grove store blows it away.

First of all, it has a growler station. Four taps, two of which are high gravity. At last check (2/21), they had Red Brick's Winter, Left Hand Milk Stout, Southampton Double White, and Founders Dirty Bastard. It's like three bucks for a new growler, then seven for a low gravity fill and ten for high gravity.

This Green's has way more bombers than the other. Plenty of six packs, refrigerated or warm. They also seem to be pretty on top of new releases...if you want something new, this is the place to go. Very knowledgeable staff.

They also sell glassware, which is a huge plus. They've added a ton of logo glassware recently.

Best beer store in Columbia, and it's not far behind Charleston Beer Exchange for best in the state.

This Green's location seems to have a little more beer than the one on Assembly St. The best thing about this location is that they fill growlers. They usually have 3 or 4 different things tapped. Beer is divided (for the most part) into American, Belgian, English, and the rest of Europe. Most of their selection is unrefrigerated but they do have some things in a cooler against the back wall. They have a good selection of cases as well. They sometimes have a few nice glasses for sale.

Prices are good and discounted is you pay cash.

This Green’s is like a wholesale warehouse of wine and beer. More wine than beer but it is definitely starting to come into its own for beer too. Cases of beer fill the place so it is a definite for a party. Also as far as cases go it has a greater selection than their other location on Assembly St. and the parking is a lot better too. I like the Green’s on Assembly better for their selection of singles and the Worlds Best Beer Room that stores the beer at a more adequate temperature. Both are great locations. The staff is always friendly and willing to learn about beer as well as school you too.

This place is pretty large and the selection is spread out all over the store like it would be in a warehouse. There's also a very large fridge in the back that includes most of what you'll find on the floor.

The service seems to be okay. I didn't have anyone offer to help me but the place was pretty crowded and I saw employees helping others which was more important anyway because... hey I'm a BA.

The selection was fine for a South Carolina store. They offer pretty much anything you'll find in state. They however aren't too big on singles (their biggest flaw by far). They only singles they sell are 500 or 750 MLs for the most part. Occasionally, I've found a gem or two hiding on the shelves here but for the most part, they sell the same stuff you'll find in state at a better price.

This place is worth a trip if you're in the area.

This Green's was a little bit of a let down for me. It's selection was ok, in that it did have some good craft/imports, but the other beers just out numbered it. In the other beers, that means micros/imports that can be found anywhere else.The highlight was definately the service. I noticed several employees helping others find a good beer or wine for Thanksgiving. It did have a large section of beers in the a fridge section that scaled the entire back wall. Overall it was a little bit of a let down. Normally this store has some better selections.

Living in the Irmo area, it was very nice to see both a Green's and Total Wine (see another review of an area location) open with a "one-two-punch". Within a few months, what was a usual 30 min drive to downtown Columbia to purchase crafted brew, turned into a 10-min drive to two prime venues.

Green's has a large selection with a nice selection clearly separated by country of origin. A very nice side feature, it the option of buying either "room-temp" or "refrigerated" versions of many of the same crafted beers. Always a plus when your running short on time.

The prices here are quite in line, and many times less than what can bought at near-by locations.

The staff are quite helpful, and many times know as much about the brews, and they do about the wines.

Green's on Fernandina is a very large place, almost a warehouse. The layout is different than the one downtown and the selection is somewhat different as well. The Fernandina location seems to be more of a sixpack and case type of store.

The prices at Green's are always amazing. Some NC beers are less expensive in Green's than you find them in NC. The service is typical and not especially helpful, but the selection is very good for a SC store and I often stop in to see what they might have that is new. Often they will get an odd Belgian in that I have never seen before, perhaps because of the lower ABV or just that SC has a few of the importers for those brands.

If in the area and looking for a place to purchase beer, Green's should definitely be on your list of places to stop by.
