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.

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.

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!!!
