In town this last weekend visiting friends, and this was on my "must-stop" list. Stopped in on Saturday afternoon, and we were the only ones there besides the 2 guys working at the time. Both were friendly and helpful. Right when you walk in there is an awesome selection of glassware, which I appreciate as I think I love glassware as much as I love beer. Awesome presentation in the store as the beer is categorized perfectly, and I had no problem finding what I was in the mood for. A stellar Belgian section that carried many bottles that I hadn't seen anywhere else in the area, or in NC for that matter. They had about a dozen taps at the back for growler fills. They offer 3 different growler sizes, all of which were reasonably priced. Good selection there. Next to that station is a small cooler section with a good amount of chilled bottles, growlers and mini-kegs. A small island in the middle of the store carries a good selection of domestic offerings. Loved this store. Another one I will revisit when back in town.

Best craft beer store in Greenville. Devin and Andrew are both super knowledgable and helpful and will help everyone find the perfect beer for their tastes. Also has the best selection of foreign beers in the whole state. I've been to other beer stores in other states and when they hear that I am from Greenville they don't even bother showing me the foreign section because it's not as good as GBX. Worth going out of your way to find.

Great selection of domestics and imports. Lots of "famous names" I haven't seen in other places. Staff was helpful, if not eager. Good glassware to choose from, and beer was fresh, too.

While small, GBE has an amazing inventory, which they also keep updated online. I've been there 3 times, and each time was a great experience. The staff is always helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Just give them your list and they'll fix you right up.

Went today on the way home from Phish tour. Got two cases of Westbrook Gose.
They had an amazing selection and also have a growler fill station. Tilquin PLUM! on the shelf. No food. Guy carried the beer out to the street for me after I purchased and went to pull the car around. Will definitely go back to play a round of disc golf in town and eat some food and spend even more $$$. Great neighbourhood. A must go. Parking is not so great but who cares it's worth it.

I started to buy good craft beer here when they first opened and for a few years after that...but the obnoxious frat boy service from really uninformed idiots finally drove me away to Community Tap as my primary craft beer provider, despite the fact that they don't have the same volume of selection. After refusing to fill growlers I've had filled at dozens of different locations prior and their ineptness of the beers they were selling we're enough to make me go elsewhere, but after being forced to listen to the then manager of the store ramble on about how his taste's were world class and mine were less than average, while waiting to check me out, I respectfully told him I didn't think I'd ever visit his store again...he blew up at me and went on a more than unprofessional tie raid as I walked out on him. Never stepped back in and never will. Most folks in town only put up with these morons and this place because its so close to Barley's.

Talk about surprising - the best beer store I've ever visited is located in downtown Greenville. I'm originally from California where I grew accustomed to pretty great beer stores, having recently moved to the area I was definitely not expecting to have access to the same kinds of beer and beer knowledge.

Zack was extremely helpful in locating some interesting new beers to try, and his suggestions did not disappoint. Do yourself a favor and check it out, and be sure to chat with the employees and ask for suggestions, they are very knowledgable and happy to help.

Also, free beer tastings on Thursdays.

Found this little gem when I was looking for craft beer to get when I was planning to visit my sister in Spartanburg. Zach was very pleasant and extremely helpful. He has a lot of knowledge stored in that noggin of his. We had great conversation on regional beers and after he found out I was from Ohio and that the reason we were in Greenville was just to shop in the store he made a few local suggestions for lunch and told me about a nearby facility I would for sure want to visit (Ten Fidy anyone?)

Overall an amazing experience and this will now be a traditional stop everytime I come to visit my sister.

Online ordering is outstanding, pricing is very reasonable and shipping is prompt!! Zach and Cameron are superb beer salesmen. Both have one helluva lot of beer knowledge and are willing to share this info anytime I call. Keep up the good work and keep the brews flowing!!
