This a good little shop - directly across South Blvd from Mac's Speed Shop, where you can find some adequate BBQ and a typically strong tap selection.
Good Bottle is interesting organized with the dry shelves being organized in nooks lending its way to a fun exploration. They always seems to have a strong selection of NC stuff and a great assortment of everything else that passes through the area.
They sell some assorted growlers in the cooler along with their own line of coffee beans and some iced coffee concentrates.
They also have 8-10 taps, typically of high quality - on my recent visit there were a few wicked weed taps going among a number of other attractive items.
The owner seems to be a pretty cool and personable guy - you should feel good about supporting this place

Located in Dilworth/Southend. Small cozy store with a fair amount of local NC brews. 95% of it is room temperature, but they do have a small fridge with some growlers, bombers and even some coffee concentrate.
They have the typical craft breweries like Ballast Point, Stone, etc. They also have a really good selection of NC beers that a lot of places don't carry, such as Pisgah.
I think they have 10 taps? They usually have one offering from Wicked Weed which is great. Love those sours!
The barkeep usually very personable and nice. Will let you taste some stuff. Only problem is that they don't tend to fill your beers to the top. I ordered a sour and there was about an inch of room that could have been filled.
As far as prices, most of their bombers are about a $1 more than everywhere else.

I'm used to visiting bars that sell bottles to-go. This is the opposite; a bottle shop that has a bar in it... and bottle shops typically don't provide great atmosphere. I will say, however, that this bottle shop provides more atmosphere than most. Its clean and industrial appearance, well-organized collection of bottles, and bright metal bar make for more atmosphere than one might expect from just a bottle shop. Don't get me wrong- this isn't the place you go to spend an evening; but it certainly is nice for a quick nip or two!
The quality of product and cleanliness of draught lines were great. Service was just above average. And they certainly have a decent selection of souvenirs for purchase. Definitely will go back again!

Went there a few months ago while visiting my brother and like another reviewer, I got there right after they had closed (5pm on a Saturday)...but was let in to browse. They had a decent selection and even a few special releases I haven't seen at my local stores, so that was a plus! The guy closing the store was extremely knowledgable and eager to answer questions even though we were keeping him from getting out of there. The prices were a little pricey, but comparative to other craft beer retailers. Well worth a look-see!

I checked this place out about a month ago. It was a Saturday, and I showed up little after 5pm. The door was locked, but I saw people inside. The owner came and opened the door and let us know they close at 5pm. This seemed like a questionable business move.
I browsed around for about 5 minutes. The stock was nicely organized, but I didn't really see anything that caught my eye. I am usually on the lookout for seasonals, and I was pretty unimpressed. They had a pretty solid taplist, but the taps were closed by the time I got there.
As a middle of the road bottle shop, i think they need to reevaluate their business model and extend their operating hours. Not everyone wants to drink in the afternoon.

Cool vibe in the store. Nice bar in the back - the tap selection when I was there didn't blow my mind but they rotate it out regularly so that's not a big deal. Staff person I dealt with was very cool/knowledgable. Pretty nice selection of beer but I wonder a bit about almost all of it being unrefrigerated. Especially for things like IPA's this doesn't seem like the best option. It gets hot in Charlotte. Prices seemed a little high, but not outlandish. Finally, they had some beers that were really quite old and likely well past their prime (this is a personal pet peeve of mine). I'll probably check it out again but, for a first visit, I wasn't blown away.

Nice open space, simple shelving, a few coolers. 12 taps, some good/local/hard to find stuff. 8 & 16 oz pours. Local growlers. Local bottles arranged by style. Domestic craft arranged by style. Foreign shelves separate, also by style. Had just come from Vintner and saw a couple bottles $1-2 less than I paid there, will be keeping that in mind in the future. Still more expensive than Brawleys and Chain store, but mostly marginally so. Some stuff not necessarily well marked price wise, the new/limited stuff, but you don't really care for those brews. Cool trendy vibe. Staff/owner was well educated in his product. Will definetely add this to the store rotation.

Perfect business model for beer lovers. The staff is extremely educated and there is a great bar in the back where they have around 15 beers on draft every week. The beers are rotated every week to provide variety.
Personally I love IPAs and they provide an excellent selection. They are up to date on most new releases and are happy to let you know what shipments they have coming in for the following weeks.
I prefer this store over other CLT stores because of the staff, the eclectic taps, and the positive atmosphere.
