Love this place, the people there are great. Always a good place to kill some time. The only bad thing about it is figuring out what to drink since the bottles and draft are both really good.
Jason is very knowledgable and can always recommend something new to try. He carries everything from local to absolutely funky.
Another great thing is even if uou dont know anything about beer, thrre is always someone who is willing to help you out, even if they don't work there.

Wow. This place is a true gem for beer enthusiasts. It is by far the best beer store I've been to in the country, bar none. There is a handful of beers on tap so you can stay for a pint, peruse the extensive beer selection with great insight from the owner, then crack a newly purchased bottle and relax on the couch while deciding your next move. (hint: have another) I wish we had a place like this in Chicago. Whether you are a local beer nerd or just traveling through, do not miss this place. Excellent, excellent store.

This place is definitely the best craft beer spot in Charlotte. I understand Brawley's beverage has been around for a while and I give them a lot of respect, however Salud offers a comparable selection of quality beers, a place to hang out, and amazing draft selection.

I'm still getting my bearings from coming to a big city like Charlotte from small town PA, so the selection and quality of beers blew me away. Not that the selection is eclipsed anywhere within 100 miles.

Jason is a nice guy, he was very patient with my Scottish brogue and was frank about his opinions on local breweries and made sure that I observe the quality of local beer in NC and respect it. Ultimately I walked away with some Evil Twin, I have a feeling it will be harder to get Evil Twin at other bars in town as opposed to Birdsong/NoDa (not disrespecting these breweries). Really nice guy and you can tell he is all about craft beer.

Pricing was spot on. I'm sure a lot of people would bat an eye at $7 for a draught, but come on where else will you find these beers on tap, and working in distribution I know the costs associated. The bottles were very reasonably priced and the bombers didn't seem to have too much mark up. For such a wide and rare selection Jason has been extremely generous with his pricing.

As soon as I find steady part time work to support my Grad student lifestyle, I will be making Salud a weekly pilgrimage. I suggest you do the same!

Cheers!

What a great place to drink and purchase beer. Jason is very friendly and REALLY knowledgeable. They always have something good and different on draft, and they have couches with 8 bit nintendo to play. Pretty sure I have the high score for Duck Hunt.

Out of all the bottle shops and bars I've visited and frequented over the past couple years Salud is by far my favorite establishment. The employees are extremely friendly and inviting and also knowledgeable about the beer selection. The owner Jason is usually there, a lot of times accompanied by his wife Dairelyn. Both of them are always up beat and have a contagious laughter and positive attitude that makes time spent there that much more enjoyable.

The store has a great bottle selection including everything from american craft, Belgians, and even some more unusual offerings from Italy and the Netherlands among others. Jason is a big admirer of funky and varied brews of the world, so if you are into sours or anything a little different he's your guy. Kegs are available upon request as well as special orders (cases etc.), just ask. There are two or three large coolers full of beer ready to be enjoyed while shopping/hanging out or for the customer who needs a chilled beverage to go. There are also ciders and mead, both cold and warm.

Lastly, there is a nice draft selection of 6 or 8 taps if I'm not mistaken and you'll be hard pressed to find a better line up around town. Prices are reasonable and they serve pours in appropriate glassware for the style, something most of you beer nerds will appreciate.

Overall I think everyone who loves beer, or just wants to try something new should visit Salud at least once. Weather your just visiting Charlotte or call it home, this place is a must see.

An absolute staple of the Charlotte and greater NC area beer community, Salud beer shop in NoDa (on North Davidson street; think: Tribeca) - located in the vicinity of gold medal winning NoDa Brewing and Birdsong Brewing, is the perfect place to find a rare selection of delicious beers that have been cared for better than most folks look after their kids.
While it has a very established community of regulars and home to some of Charlottes most prolific beer folks, they are an extremely inviting and pleasant crowd. Don't know much about beer or just trying to get more involved? This is your place - everyone will welcome you and help you choose something perfect for your palate. Check out some of the newly added shelves that feature owner Jason and his buddies most outrageous grabs from all over the country. A grizzled stout veteran with specific tastes? I guarantee you Jason and his staff can find you something dark and angry while you swap beer lore and stories.
The bottom line is this, Charlotte and in turn Asheville have exploded in the last few years and Salud Beer has been their biggest friend and advocate. Do not come to town and miss this gem.

Oh yeah, for you out of towners Salud ships!

The best beer shop in Charlotte, hands down. Friendly, knowledgable, and helpful staff. Taps are constantly rotating and offering unique beers, sometimes multiple times a day - and most of the time they are beers that you won't be able to find anywhere else in the city. Offers indoor and outdoor seating, original nintendo complete with punchout and battletoads. I spend way too much time there.
