This place was really cool. It's right off of East Bay St. on the way to Rainbow Row from the bulk of the restaurants on East Bay. Be forewarned, the place is tiny, but since they aren't selling any liquor, wine, or even BudMillerCoors type beers, the space is well utilized. They even have taps to sell growlers of keg-only beers (although they can't sell you a pint to drink while browsing yet, unfortunately). Scott was working the register the evening I visited (he goes by BeerExchange here) and it's really nice to have a serious beer geek there in the store to answer any questions or give advice.
I have to say that I wasn't expecting much out of the beer scene on my trip to Charleston. South Carolina isn't known for being very friendly to alcohol, but I honestly can't think of a beer store that would put the Beer Exchange in it's shadow, at least in the Southeast. This is a must stop for any craft beer lover visiting this colonial city.
