Read a few reviews and I knew this was a must check out place in Charlotte. This smaller store lives up to the hype. Family run (woohoo) The owner is super friendly, informative and helpful.

We were in town for the disc Golf world championships and must have refered over a dozen folks to the place during the week.

Well chosen selection of the good stuff. You will find plenty of worthy brew, from a bunch of local, regional and national breweries. Store is overflowing with character good beer options and good vibes

Plus pointers for out of town rubes like us on where to find some good BBQ, inside info on what is going on with the different local sauces and even a call to a BBQ joint for us to make sure they were open. Priceless. Toss in a nice pint glass and well what can I say but, I would be at this place all the time if I was local!

Support Brawleys if you are in town...

Great experience. I stopped in here this weekend (Sunday) and picked up a few bottles. There's a decent amount of taps and a TV that was turned on to the Panther's game when we walked in.

Beyond that are the coolers with beer and a few dry storage racks with beer as well. A good selection and excellent for the space. They do have a small space in their walk-in with a few more beers.

The negatives: Selection isn't as big as I've seen in the same amount of space but with the dual bar/bottle shop thing, it's understandable.
Secondly, A couple of the bottles my buddy picked up ended up being a couple of bucks more expensive than the Total Wine a block away. That being said, a few of the bottles were cheaper so I'm guessing on the whole, you end up better at Brawley's than elsewhere.

The positive: There was a woman working behind the counter who may have identified herself but I'm terrible with names, just suffice it to say I am assuming she's normally there. She said her son would have really liked to speak with my buddy and me since we were out of towners and she was sad he wasn't there. She gave exemplary service. Once she found that we weren't from Charlotte, she recommended a bunch of local beers they had (most of which we were on the lookout for based on info gleaned from here).

Great experience!

Awesome bottle shop. I was visiting from NY and Sean was extremely pleasant in helping me find some local gems to bring home. He took over 20 minutes walking me through the store, giving me recommendations. If I were a local, this would be the only place I purchased beer and if you visit, it is a mandatory stop.

Really feel the need to share the wonderful experience I had in Brawley's. Stopped in after flying into Charlotte on the way home to Columbia, SC. There were about 20 beers on tap, and the bartender (sorry I can't remember the name) was very helpful. After my wife asked about a different stout he pointed out Xocoveza, gave a wonderfully accurate description of the beer, and let her try a sample. I had a La Folie, which I'm always happy to drink.

Selection was really top notch for the size of the store. I could tell that Micheal has thought out what beers to carry to get the most out of his space. Got some Nugget Nectar and Sweet Baby Jesus, as well as several other local goodies. Micheal took the time to talk to me about the North Coast Old Stock Otsuchi, and he also answered several other questions even though the store was pretty busy.

After I checked out he asked me what type of glass I like to drink out of and hooked me up w/ a sweet Teku. This really was the cherry on top of a great experience.

I will definitely be back here whenever I'm in the area. It's really nice to be treated like a valued customer and talk beer w/ some knowledgeable guys. I recommend this store to anyone who happens to be in Charlotte.

Visited from Florida, great selection of brews to choose from while enjoying a few pours. Small at home location with big time all are welcome feeling. Lots of beer wisdom here!

Man this place was a find. Michael and his mother were extremely helpful and generous. We were driving South through North Carolina, and Michael went into his private stash to hook us out of towners up. Overall excellent experience.

Just stopped in here and had a fantastic experience and conversation. Michael is the man! He saw that we were from out of town and gave us the VIP treatment. Will stop in here everytime I'm in town.

Visited here while teaching for a week in Charlotte. Delightful customer service. Hard to judge selection since I'm not familiar with the area but I managed to spend a couple hundred dollars on wicked weed and cascade beer I can't get here at home. Lovely, lovely place

I got to meet Mike yesterday for the first time. It was my second visit to his store. While the space is small, the selection is excellent and the customer service superb. Even though I wasn't a regular, he sold me what I wanted (GL Christmas Ale) from his "best customer hold back stock." He also let me taste New Belgium's La Folie (the taps are now open) which blew me away. It bought it and several other of his suggestions. I live in Gaffney, SC, so to get good beer I have to make a beer run to either Greenville or Charlotte. My first stop in Charlotte will be Brawley's from now on. Mike's beer knowledge is that of a master. I look forward to reviewing his recommendations. Take the time to discuss with him what your preferences are and he'll hook you up with fantastic beer.

Mike is awesome! He has really be a great resource for me as I travel down the rabbit hole of craft beer. He and the folks that work with him are world class and just a great group of people. Thanks guys for making my weekly visit informative and thanks for the great selection of beers!

Go to Brawley's if you love craft beer or just want to know what its about.
