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.

Charleston Beer Exchange is a tiny little shop on a side street that I nearly stumbled past until a friend pointed it out. The building looks like one of the first built in the city and a small square sign let's you know where you are. Although the store is small there's not a foot of wasted space. A shelf of NC/SC locals is the first to greet you as you enter. Past that is a small 5 or 6 tap growler station then the bank of coolers, 5 or 6 doors. The rest of Americas offerings are followed by Scandinavian, Belgian, German, English, and other imports in a small aisle.

As I said, there couldn't be better use of the space. The options are plentiful and the staff is quick to lend tips and thoughts, holding nothing back. The staff is helpful and fun to talk to. The prices are right in line with other places I stopped on my travels. The seasonal selection was stacked. I was very happy with my stop in, especially after hearing so much about them in the past, it lived up to expectations. Highly recommended.
