The Piggly Wiggly is a diamond in the rough! It's a great place to pick up some beer when we're at the beach house. For a grocery store it has a great selection. It's not as good as some beer stores visitors may be used to in other parts of the country, but it is impressive for this area. I love the growler station, there's always something new to try. They do a good job getting beers that other places don't stock.

The Best Selection in Myrtle Beach. They have so many bottles to choose from. I always go in thinking I will get 3 or 4 bottles but come out with nearly 10 bottles.

I love the sour selection. Jolly Pumpkin and New Belgium. Im never walking out disappointed. The rotating Taps are awesome as well. Never dull selections there!

Living in Seattle and here at Myrtle Beach is a big transition and sometimes hard to find good brew in Myrtle Beach. Although, ThePig at Market Commons has changed that!

Thanks Byrd

Best beer selection in the Grand Strand!!! Always has what's new and hard to get, Mike has a wealth of knowledge to help anyone find the perfect brew! The growler station is way above par and reasonably priced, only the best of the best at all tomes.

Fantastic selection, would not have thought I would find anything near this good at the SC beach. Just about any Belgian you would want (including the whole Ommegang family), a huge assortment of microbrews and of course all of the usual Coors/Molson, AB/InBev stuff.

This is the best selection in town hands down. Mike does a great job of getting quality beer into Myrtle Beach. Don't go anywhere else....you'll find it here!!! And oh, don't forget to check out the growler selections. Have you EVER been to a Piggily Wiggily and come out with a growler of quality brew? Thanks Mike, for all your hard work!!!

Byrd's Beer at the Pig: The best place in Myrtle Beach to find quality beer and craft brews. They have an excellent selection and a nice variety. They have the beer you won't find anywhere else in town. Typical six-packs and four-packs, as well as individual bottles and even a Growler Station.

Assistance is readily available, if needed, but these guys will let you browse without breathing down your neck. And honestly, with the variety they have, you're going to need time to look.

Excellent layout and appearance - the theme of the beer section blends in with the upscale look of this particular grocery store.

Piggy Wiggly is the place to be in Myrtle Beach

Atmosphere is that of a fancy, upscale grocery store. The beer is located in the back corner and 90% of it is in coolers. Floor plan is open and easy to navigate. The area is well maintained and up to date.

As for service, I did have one employee come by and ask if we needed any help locating anything. I also had no problem finding someone to pour a growler for me as well.

Selection was pretty impressive. I walked out with Founders Backwoods Bastard, an Ommegang gift pack, some Victory, Great Divide Yeti, a Bells Double Cream Stout growler, among other things. Most beers are 6pack only except for the bombers. They do have about 30-40 in the build your own 6pack shelf.

Overall they will definitely have something for everyone. If your in Myrtle, make this your first stop.

Very respectable selection and love that they have a growler fill station. They probably do have 600+ beers (as a number of people have said), though some of them are the standard grocery store crap that you wouldn't have at many good beer stores (how many flavors of Smirnoff Ice really need to be made?). Regardless, they have a good selection, especially for a grocery store. COAST Boy King was the highlight of the trip, evidently they were near the end of the keg and had only had it in 3 days.

I stayed about 45 minutes North of Myrtle and we did a day trip down to see some sights.

I stopped at the Pig and was very impressed. The selection is far above any other store I checked while in the Myrtle area. Plenty of stuff I can't get in St. Louis as well as many many things I saw no where else in Myrtle.

I didn't go for any big IPA's so freshness was not much of a concern for me and I didn't check any to see if the freshness rumors were true.

Michael, the manager, has really stepped up the game for any grocery store anywhere in the country. I didn't get a growler but I apparently had just missed Boy King.

I bought Bruery, Terrapin, DFH, Oskar Blues, Westbrook, Brooklyn. I even traded a bottle with Michael while i was there. A great experience and I plan to make it a stop anytime I'm in the area.

I docked half a point each for atmosphere, I had to walk past veggies and paper towels to get to the beer, and selection, I hate to say it but it could be bigger(who needs bottled water). Outstanding regardless.

This store is a beer oasis in the Grand Strand! The selection of beers is the best on the beach, Michael B. is always friendly and extremely helpful. It is without a doubt the best place to purchase beer in the Myrtle Beach area.
