Was on The Strand last week for vacation, and looking for good beer; a tough mission in that area. Went in to the store after dinner next door with my family, and everyone loved the layout of the store.
The beer and wine was located in the back left corner of the store. Some craft beer, especially bottles > 12 oz. were displayed individually on a rack; I bought Weihenstephaner Hefe, Plank Hefe from that shelf. Saw many other good beers, including some IPA's that I love, but I was in a "summer beer" mood. Around the corner were more traditional sixers and four packs. Bought some Unibroue Blance de Chambly, North Coast Pranqster there, which was enough for me on that trip, as the rest of my party was BMC drinkers.
Next summer when I return, I shall most certainly make this store one of my first stops.
The prices were very reasonable compared to what I pay in Mass. Can not comment on service, as no employees were in that area of the store, and I didn't seek any help. (981 characters)

vibe: 4 | quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 5

Vibe - It's a grocery store, but it's the best display I've seen in a grocery store. Byrd is generous, knowledgeable and friendly.

Quality - Top notch in cleanliness, service, and selection.

Service - See above. Byrd is the man. If there's ever a TV show called, "beer store revival", he should be the dude that trains the staff.

Selection - I made a 2 hour round trip 3 times in two weeks from NC to make sure I didn't miss anything. Came home very happy. You won't find anything better in Myrtle. (502 characters)

This is exactly the type of place I like to buy beer at --great selection, great people, and a local, high quality grocer feel that totally destroys your typical alcohol warehouse or bottle shop environment.

Byrd is an awesome guy--completely helpful, connected with the beer scene in Myrtle Beach, and has pulled stuff from the back he just got in for us a few times. Hundreds of choices well organized on shelves and in coolers. Six-tap growler station is typically very good, occasionally immense in terms of sheer awesomeness (KBS, Mexican Cake, Hopslam, Enjoy By, aged Evil Twin brews, draught only Allagash/Oskar Blues stuff, etc.). Byrd frequently gets new stuff and rotates his bottle and tap selections. Prices have been consistently fair--good, in fact, especially compared to shops in my home state. Lots of nice sales, too.

Here's a sample of what I picked up the last time I was down in South Carolina:

COAST Boy King DIPA (growler!)
2013 Southern Tier Choklat (also growler!)
Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break (also growler!)
Stone/Beachwood/Heretic Unapologetic IPA (growler? oh yeah!)
Maine Beer Co. Lunch IPA
Westbrook Citrus Ninja Exchange DIPA
Trappistes Rochefort 10
Bell's Two Hearted Ale (cans!)

Awesome stuff. Bottom line: if the brewery you're looking for distributes in SC, the Pig will most likely stock 'em (or they'll get 'em). I've also struck up conversations with really cool, down-to-earth beer peeps here, and I've never left disappointed. Hard to beat that. (1,496 characters)
