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.

Fantastic selection, great staff, very good at what they do. A staple in the SC beer community and a must visit.

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.
