Had to throw up an updated review as they have doubled their taps. Rocking 16 (all craft) now. Focus is on high grav with Belgians, Imperials always featured prominently. Jeremy (manager) gets craft beer and always puts up an eclectic and out of the ordinary lineup of taps. His personality is for sh&%t but you can't have it all (kidding, I know he will see this). They rotate quite often and the beer club list is a great motivator to step outside your usuals and try new things. They have an extensive selection of wine and beer singles and the staff is always available to help with your selection. They have expanded their menu to include a nice offering of specialty sandwiches and cheeses (think what you might see at a Parisian brasserie) and the chef (Grant) really puts a lot of thought and originality into his food. The best part about this place is the vibe. Envision a Cheers for beer/wine geeks with a bit of a European pub/brasserie feel to it. Most people are regulars who know each other and if you are new you are brought into the conversation straight away. Live entertainment on most weekends.

Definite clique, but that's pretty much any local bar anymore. Friendly staff once they know you and you have visited a few times. Good selection of bottle beers and always decent selection off of 16 taps. Food is very good, especially the aged beef with cheese sandwich! Pizzas are hand made flatbread style, very good.

Overall nice place.

GOOD:
This place always has great beers on tap, 16 rotating. Recent examples: Hellhound, Beer Geek Breakfast, Alchemy Hour, Narwal, and Espresso Yeti to name a few. If you find yourself in Charlotte, looking for a great draft list, this is your place.

BAD:
Price gouging at its finest.
I went to purchase a 4-pack, assuming it would be $9.99 -$10.99, it rang up at $16.99.
Bombers are consistently marked up around $3 on average.

Bottom Line:
Get your draft here, and your bottles elsewhere.

I've been to Vintner's a few times, and overall, I've had a good time. It's more of a wine bar, but they have a pretty nice selection of bottled craft beer. They have a bout 10 things on tap. A lot of it is local brews.

They have a cooler with some brews, and they do charge a 'corking' fee if you drink there. That's why I try and get a bomber to make it worth the upcharge. That's a bit bothersome, but I guess they are trying to remain competitive.

My wife likes the wine selection, so it makes it easier to get her to go!

Overall, if you want a change of pace on a Friday night, drop by with the spouse and tilt a few.

This is both a beer and food review. This place is nestled in the arboretum shopping center next to the Tinder Box (cigars). Vintner Wine Market offers a wide variety of bottled beers (guessing 250 to 300 different beers),16 rotating taps (all craft beer( (a core 4 , local 4, and 8 rotating miscellaneous brews), and a large wine selection. On many occasions you will find a rare or hard to find beer on the draft list. I have become a regular there and really enjoy the atmosphere, great staff, regulars, and occasional live music Thursday to Saturday. The food is great and all locally sourced. Here is a few of my "must haves" the pimento cheese plate, chicken pesto pizza, and the sandwich that gets my vote for best in Charlotte is the grilled cheese beer braised short rib sandwich with au jus or spicy mustard. This is a great place to visit and you will always find help and reviews from the regulars with the draft list or a free sample from the wonderful staff. Cheers!

I've visited here 4 times now. The first time to check out the bottle selection and the other 3 times with friends.

For bottle selection they do good for a wine shop but not what I would consider amazing for a beer store. They have what I'd expect from a place that would attract craft beer lovers. Nothing too out of the ordinary that you couldn't find at Brawley's or Total Wine.

For draft selection it has been hit or miss. One time there was hardly anything on that I was interested in and the other two times there have been a few beers I wanted to try. Unfortunately what was listed on the website didn't live up to what was actually there on all my trips. Maybe the good drafts go fast and they just don't update their site often but I've been disappointed by them not having what was listed on their site every time I went. Still they do have some good drafts. Also they seem to offer pretty small pours that are heavy on head/

Not a big fan of the atmosphere however. While you can go here and have drinks with your friends they don't have the best seating and it doesn't seem like the kind of place you'd want to spend all night at.

Service was pretty basic and probably not as good as most places that are really into craft beer. One time when I stopped in during the middle of the day when there were no customers present I was greeted and that was it, the other times they have taken my order but that's it. Sure they did there job but it isn't anything I'd rave about.

Overall a solid location worth stopping at but nothing mindblowing.
