First, Scott really know how to run a business and how to treat his customers. He spent all the time he could, picked out and recommended some gems, and even helped us find lunch.

The store is small but you could not back more quality beer in that space and still be able to walk through without knocking things over. The growler stations was impressive (I wish they could do that in NC) and had a wide array of choices. I snagged a Cantillon Saint Lamvinus (he only got six or else I would have bought more than one) some Brouweeij De Molen Porter and SSS as well as some other great stuff to supplement all the beer I brought down for the party like some Souther Tier beers.

Quality - first rate, I've been to few stores with higher quality and the difference is probably minimal

Service - First rate, Scott was great and the other gentleman (I didn't get his name) was helpful as well

Selection - I've been to stores with bigger selection everyone of them had BMC and other mass produced products as well. None of that here. Only the best imports and craft beers.

Value - The prices were what I expected, but I also didn't do a ton of comparison pricing, I was more interested in getting what I couldn't at home.

Fantastic shop, can't wait to go back.

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.
