I made it to this legendary Piggly Wiggly this past August while vacationing in Myrtle the same way that every other BA is probably gonna find themselves upon this massive selection in the South. I guess the co-owner and operator Mike Byrd has a serious interest in not only crafts but also the their massive wine selection.

This place is tucked into a new commercial district called the Market Common, there's also a Gordon Biersch right down the road. By the way as an FYI, my brother and I went once and missed their store hours by a half an hour. Call and check the time, I was thinking up all night grocery store? Anyway I didn't make it back here until the night before I was leaving back to Ohio.

I went in evening no real service to speak of, other then the friendly checkout girl with a passion for the wine selection. Also I spoke with a guy stocking yogurt, and he gave me a little back ground on the guy who created the selection about his passion and connection to the craft brewing community.

Stellar selection, I got Stone Self Righteous, Smuttynose Saison, Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA, Ston Cali Belgique, Ommegang Biere de Mars, and Hoppin' Frog Barrel Aged Boris the Crusher (holy shit!!!) A beer that I can't even get living in Ohio, never seen a bottle yet up my way though I know it's now in Pittsburgh. I spent well over a hundred bucks and got an Allagash and Ommegang chalice as well.

I hear this is going to be a takeout growler estabilishment in the near future, with a small but high quality selection of drafts. Very nice I hope it works in the grocery setting, I wish this could exist up my way.

I was in Myrtle Beach recently for vacation and when doing my research on where to buy beer discovered that this was the best place. So I was pretty excited to visit this world class beer destination. Unfortunately, it's not exactly a world class shop. I was able to find some good beer, the store area is clean, and the one staff member I interacted with was nice. It's a good store and worth a visit but nothing remarkable.

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.

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.

deli food is pretty awesome as well if you need something quick to pair with your beer
i give it a 10/10 just because its the best place in mb to get beer period.
