Reasonably priced store this is with a strictly business atmosphere, and they have a good selection of domestic and import beer inside the walk in cooler.

The service is good and the selection is there for the taking. Always ahve something new and exciting as well as oldies but goodies.

Value is decent, beer could always be cheaper, but who can complain. There are instances when I've found brews cheaper at other places by a dollar or two..

Can't go wrong here, nice central location for USC students as well as myself.!

green's is awesome. their beer selection is only matched by their low prices. it you want it, 9 times out of 10 they got it. i was surprised to find that their prices were cheaper than wal-mart on beer. you even get a deeper discount if you pay in cash instead of a credit or debit card. if you cant find and item at other stores, the first thing that pops into your head is "i bet green's has it." and if you happen to be close to a green's you just go their in the first place. they are pretty much your go-to man in an alcohol related emergency.

Green's is Green's, right.... WRONG! Downtown has only a fraction of the selection that the Green's off Piney Grove carries.

The folks here are nice and always ask if you need assistance. However, they just started their growler station recently and don't quite have a handle on carrying various styles that are popular. I've only seen an IPA once or twice in several visits... and they were garbage IPA's.

They do feature a 'high end' cooler that contains nice Belgian ales, tripels, quads and such, but they have limited space and don't carry but a fraction of their sister ship in the Harbison area.

Hopefully, they'll get the idea after a while on the growlers though.

Prices are probably the same, but the

I have been here several times but I still think I like the Greens in Northwest Columbia much better. The service here is pretty shoddy. Nobody ever says anything when I enter and everyone looks as if they hate their job. Friendly workers goes a long way in my opinion. The prices are always good and there is a discount for cash purchases. The selection was pretty good but not quite as large as the one on Piney Grove. Plenty of stuff to choose from but nothing too rare or extraordinary. This is a nice stop in the downtown area for your beer needs. I like this place but the other Greens is much better in my opinion.

Stopped by here when in town dropping my brother off at Ft. Jackson. Large building with half of the store dedicated to beer and wine. They even had their own entrance, which I missed. Beer section was tucked in the back left corner of the store. They had a large cooler section, which is all I saw at first. I thought, "man this isn't that great of a selection." Turned around and facing the cooler was a large shelf dedicated solely to craft beer. Nice! That's more like it. Saw some from Souther Tier (which we can't get in NC), Thomas Creek, Terrapin, RJ Rockers, Stoudt's, Weyerbacher, Victory, Bells, Founders, etc. Pretty good selection. I picked up some bombers of some Southern Tier selections. Not sure how fresh some of this stuff is. That's my only concern here. Lots and lots of dust on some of these bottles, and they still carried some of the out-of-seasonal offerings from Terrapin, namely Big Hoppy Monster (last Fall), and Coffee Stout (last Winter). Prices were very reasonable. I'd come here for sure if I were a local. Recommend.
