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...

Brawley's, a Charlotte institution. I'm assuming it's located in an old gas station, because that's what it looks like to me. The shop is old and small but don't let that fool you because it's very well taken care of. Although there's not massive shelf space or a big warehouse feel there is certainly plenty of beer lining the shelves to keep me satisfied along with a small-ish cold storage room in the back.
The owner was great. Talkative and enthusiastic. Quick to give tips on an upcoming roadtrip around the area. He knows his beer and loves to share information. The store selection is expertly handpicked and well thought out. NC locals and seasonals stuf the shelves with smatterings of out of state offerings and imports. All prices are beyond fair. If you're in Charlotte Brawleys is a must.

Excellent service and a great selection of beers from everywhere. A true beer geek. Not hard to get to even though I'm not local, it's still being built, and will feature taps in the future, so the floor is crowded a bit. Would be my top spot if I was local, but I drive 2 hours one way to get here every now and then too, I can't say that about any other place
. Highly recommend the service is incredibly good, and in a competitive retail market owner enthusiasm is a real separator.

It was great to finally meet Michael at his awesome store. My Mom lives in the Carolinas and has been swinging by for years to seek out rarities to bring up to Toronto. This year's beercation brought us to North and South Carolina, and Brawley's was top of mind for a visit.
Found some rare treats and learned of the secret identity of the man on the bottle of Olde Hickory Daniel Boone.
Great vibe, super friendly owner (Michael), killer selection, and soon to be completed tap room make this a must stop for beer enthusiasts.

I see the high marks so many must be neighborhood people who frequent quite a bit and know the people who work here. Upon my 3rd visit and a few purchases each time, I guess I'm still a stranger, but that's okay. I drive a decent way to see places and check out selections, so I would at least expect a little friendliness.
Selection for the unknowns is what is on the floor. Some on shelves, many open cases or coolers. I did see a few things here I couldn't get elsewhere, but their Twitter/Facebook feeds advertise some specials, but I found they are not for everyone, only their regulars.
I asked why I would have a reason to come back if they wouldn't sell me what I came for, and was told they try to keep their regular visitors first. I didn't see a crowd (I was the only one inside or in the parking lot) and was there for at least 45 minutes looking around.
I understand the regulars but if the beer was released 4-5 days prior, aren't paying customers wanted first? I can understand holding special releases for a day or 2 after receiving them, but after 5 days? I'll be back again to see if anything changes, but I can go elsewhere, just hope they learn as it is a decent shop.
No taps at this time, but was told anywhere from April to November of 2014.
