Arriving a few years ago, the Beer Exchange is a welcome addition to the Charleston beer scene. I like to live by the motto "Life is too short to drink mediocre beer," and the Beer Exchange helps me keep to it. They have a variety of craft beers on bottle for purchase and on tap for growler fills. Some of the beers they offer aren't available anywhere else in the state, which is nice. But there are two things that make this place unique. First, there are the beer dinners: they partner with fine local restaurants (and we have those in spades in Charleston) a couple times a month and pair a beer with each course of a set menu. Very fun way to experience some new beers. Second, they have Rare Beer Tuesday. For this they get a keg or a cask and fill growlers until they're tapped out. They've had some really unique brews and occassionally the brewer will come and do a meet and greet (Bill Covaleski, President of Victory Brewery in Pennsylvania, came in not too long ago). Great place.

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.
