Wow! What a beer store! This all-beer shop packs a large inventory into a small space without feeling overly crowded. And it's neat, clean and well organized. It's also in a great, historic location within the area that most visitors would be anyway.

They have a huge selection of Belgians along with a lot of locals from Charleston and the southeast in general. But there are plenty from the rest of the US and Europe as well. We picked up some Coast Hop Art, Big Daddy Vlady's, Sculpin, Sea Monster and Palmetto IPA to take home. Only a small portion of their stock is refrigerated. Hopefully they have good air conditioning for the warm summers. They also have several taps for growlers to go (unfortunately state laws limit them from serving or offering unscheduled tastings).

The guys that run the shop are very helpful and enjoy talking beer. The only downside is that it's a bit pricey but given the quality and location, it's within reason.

Charleston Beer Exchange is not a place to be missed. We could use a shop like this in every city.

They didn't have Wicked Weed, but they had beers that were just as good and the knowledge of the staff led me to realize that.

Perfect Beernurd shop. The guys know their stuff!!! Not a fan of the location. It's a pain driving around downtown and parking can be troublesome.

Awesome place. Picked up a lot of local stuff and some others that aren't available in Florida (Allagash, Evil Twin, Full Steam). Sadly, one of the beers I bought (an IPA from Coast Brewing) had gone skunky. Other than that, perfect beer haul trip.

Really great bottle shop that is well stocked with both beer and knowledgeable, friendly staff. I stopped in during a recent trip to Charleston and bought a bunch of beers that I can't get back home. Some of my favorite finds were: Tilquin gueuze, a couple Jolly Pumpkins, and a Rodenbach Caractere Rouge.
