only made it here once during my visit to Charlotte this summer. Fine spot for a wide variety of bottle available both at room temp and cold. Also there is a moderate amount of draft pours for consumption on premises. Owner was friendly and full of general and local beer info. They sell a moderate selection of snacks/salsa/sauces etc. But you go here for the quality BA worthy beer options. Well worth a visit if you are local or visiting. A cool beer boutique in a fun and funky neighborhood. Go and enjoy

A re-review...

When I first reviewed this kick ass spot, it was just a bottle shop. Not that there's anything wrong with that - it was solid. Times have changed - they continuously have a great variety of beers on draft now, brews you don't see anywhere else. The space is tiny and overflowing, but they're in the midst of an expansion & will soon have deli foods too. The best thing about the place - the people. They guys running the joint could not be cooler. It's a beer geeks dream - these guys know beer, they can talk with you about anything beer related. This has become one of my favorite spots to grab a beer - in the country. Check 'em out.

Corner of the building behind the Cajun place in NoDa. A neat old brick store front. Looks like the owners are from my neck of the woods, Michigan. Solid mix of local, national and import craft. Sixers and singles. Though you may need to really pick through the coolers to make sure you don't miss something. Or you could just ask the workers, they were helpful and well aware of what was in there. They do seem to get a good bit of hard to find/low volume stuff.

I think they had room for about 8 drafts, they seem to rotate quickly because of the small bar area and nice late hours. Usually some real nice stuff on tap. A chill atmosphere compared to the other more bar like atmospheres in the area. One tv, but mostly it has the sound off and the noise is people talking.

Something that was needed in this part of town I believe. Brawleys-esque. I like it.

Salud is a little shop of a style which I've never really experienced until I got to Charlotte where there seemed to be a few. Salud being the coolest of the bunch. It's a little store on the corner of a nondescript little line of storefronts. Stepping inside you're immediately greeted by what I would call a small lounge area. A couple couches and chairs make for a small seating area. Both walls are lined with bottles for sale, lots of local NC stuff along with a shelf unit in the middle of the store. Heading toward the back, the checkout counter is to the left and a small 5-6 seat bar off to the right. It's cozy and loaded with goodies. Like being in a friend's basement for a couple beers. Music is jamming at a level loud enough to hear but quiet enough to speak over. I seem to recall Ghostface...

The owner was tending bar and taking care of the shop while we were visiting. He was ready to talk at the drop of a hat. Cool guy, letting us know what's new, talking about some plans for a possible expansion, and giving us all types of tips on Charleston, SC. There were 6 or 7 people shopping around and drinking when I stopped in and they all seemed to know each other to some degree. 10 taps were pouring, all written on a chalkboard behind the bar, mostly local stuff, but a couple out of state selections as well. Growlers are filled and inexpensive. The service was great, selection very well thought out, and the vibe was right on; comfortable and fun. I can't recommend Salud highly enough.

The two things that draw me to this particular beer store: location and 8 rotating taps.
They always have superb beers on tap, a lot seasonals. I had Hopslam on draft here a week ago.
Their location, in the NoDa neighborhood of Charlotte, is great for grabbing a beer or two, and then barhopping. There are several bars/restaurants with great draft lists to check out within walking distance.
The store is rather small with a limited selection, but it is very organized and the quality of the selection is great.

You won't find a friendlier store owner that not only cares a lot about the craft beer world but also cares a lot about the customer experience. He goes out of his way to introduce himself and assist in any selections.

Now with 10 draft lines, whats better than getting a cold draft and shopping for beer? The answer is nothing.

Also, while they have bottles everywhere - VERY family friendly!! Highchairs provided and strollers are welcome! As a parent this is a huge deal to me.

Cool little dive on the edge of NoDa. Very small, but has enough room for good craft selection and a small bar with 6 or 8 taps, I think.

Owner was really friendly, even shared a Westbrook Gose that he picked up the week before.

He really seems to know his stuff, and he was really well educated on sours, which I was pleased with.

There is a nice little area to sit near the front.

Overall, when I'm in NoDa, I will stop in.

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.

Jason has a great store he is truly into craft beer and opened the store because he loves beer. Doesn't hurt he is a wolverine. Jammie is also great and the regulars are awesome. If you don't stop by here you are truly missing out. Also there is always a nice selection of tap. And you never no what sample you may get a chance to try..GO BLUE!

Always a great selection on tap. Love that I can get a draft and shop the bottles (can't do that in TX). Great bottle selection. Always friendly service.

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.

Great selection of beer, awesome small little store that's about to expand. Rotating beers on tap, and the owner, Jason, is a really nice and helpful dude. Highly recommend giving them your business.

This is a new beer shop that opened a few weeks ago in NoDa. The owner Jason is very friendly and knowledgeable. He has 6 taps of great stuff. Mostly bombers and singles for sale with a limited number of 6 packs. Lots of great choices and some beers you dont see at the larger box stores. Prices are a bit higher than you might find at Total Wine but they do a lot more volume so I can see why. There is a small patio area as well as a sitting area in the front and a bar that can seat maybe 5 or 6. This place has a great neighborhood vibe to it. Lots of great conversation while enjoying a beer. Salud fits right into the neighborhood.

Has some decent beers on tap and a very decent selection of bottles. Some varience as to what is available, but always a great choice. Some items you can't find elsewhere. Easy friendly crowd in this area of town and a solid friendly staff that treats all like everyday customers. Super knowledgeable staff and owner.

Ownership goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed.

Parking is somewhat tough sometimes, but other than that good place to relax and enjoy a good beer.
