I've only been there a handful of time but have bought multiple beers that were passed their best buy dates. The store has a good selection but doesn't seem to rotate their stock or they hold on to items that don't sell. Make sure to check the dates on the beers especially when buying hoppy beers from them.

"it's all about the karma"
i've popped into this total wine twice now while visiting a friend in the university area - an area of Charlotte most have only read about in books and seen on maps of far away lands
all total wine's are the same layout wise - mostly dry storage. a long aisle of sixers, a cooler with a subset of what can be found in the aisle and a section of singles and bombers.
selection highlights some of the more readily available locals - full lines from highland, mother earth, duck rabbit and others. The walk-in cooler had the 2 latest bottled releases from Olde Meck and also some made-for-store growlers that i didnt even know existed.
The singles selection was nice (didnt vouch quality) but my time is limited so i stayed away.
respectable place to buy beer - brawleys is fun for treasure hunting, but people need sixers too and i dont know where else to go but total wine.

Stopped in here on my way up to the Foothills Baltic Porter release as I knew I was going to be stupidly early. One complaint about this location is finding it in the shopping complex. I passed by this place probably 3 times before I happened to spot it out of the corner of my eye. Upon pulling it had a nice look to it as it appeared to be the theme of the buildings in that area of the complex. Walked through the doors and the single bottle selections were directly as you walked in. They had some other bottles scattered throughout the store as well with the 4/6 packs in the back right of the store. Started to build my own 6-pack and had a REALLY hard time doing so... Only ended up with 5 total which is saying something. The staff was decently helpful while I was there. Overall if you are in the area it is worth checking out as they did have a few rare bottles while I was there.

I've been to one other Total Wine before, but this has a much better selection of beers, in my opinion. The 6-pack section is two rows of a variety or micros and macros. Ideally, I'd like more selection (in the 6-pack realm), but it is pretty good for what its got.
The best thing, though, is the individual beers that they have out for sale. You could probably have a different beer each day for a whole year and still have more beers to go. I felt like I was in heaven mixing and matching my own 6-pack of random beers from NC, the mid-Atlantic, and all over the country. Good place to stop by.
