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.

As others said, this is a jewel in the city of Charleston. I searched this place out after hearing about it from friends. I was not disappointed at all!!
The selection was great. Had stuff I couldn't find in my hometown of Charlotte and got some good recommendations from the staff.
I am planning my next trip to Charleston and will be sure to stop in here.

While walking through Charleston, just happened to look down side street near the Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon and there was a sign for this place. We weren't looking for a beer shop, but figured, nice break from a walk to check it out.
SO glad we did. As others have mentioned, the place is small, but the selection is great. I might give it a 5, but there were some standards I was used to I didn't see, but there was a decent local selection that replaced those, which is fine. I will also say, the selection really shines on the imports, to quote another review: "largest selection for such a small store."
When we were there, they happened to have a large Evil Twin selection (I got the impression the brewer had used a local brewery's facilities for some), including one we thought we might not see again.
We returned later to actually buy some beer, and were a little upset that we couldn't get more due to the transporting of them the rest of our vacation. We enjoyed Charleston, and will likely return, and will definitely return to this place when we do.

Was taking to this store by a local friend who wasnt kidding when he told me this was a world class spot. The customer service is incredible, they are very informative and one is consider a master beer something...he knows everything there is to know about beer i swear but he will be the first to admit he doesn't..but he does ;). IF you guys can make it out here i would 100% recommend it, huge selection of all types of beer, rare beers, growlers, etc.. if you want an amazing place to get some beers with a massive selection then you have came to the right place!
