Was one of my first stops when I started drinking craft beer. Mike was always kind enough to give me suggestions and help me navigate the complex world of craft beer.

Ive been to shops around the country and none hold a candle to this place. From a customer service perspective, Mike (and his mom) goes above and beyond. Where else have you been that welcomes you as a first time customer by giving you a free beer glass?

If you are in Charlotte stop by and give them your business. You won't regret it.

I'm the type of girl that LOVES beer! Guinness style, deep, dark, flavorful beer. And then 3 weeks ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and have been searching for gluten free options besides cider! While searching for a location to buy a specific Dogfish beer, I found Brawley's. BIG. SIGH. OF. RELEIF.

The owner showed me the shelves (no, not shelf, SHELVES) of their gluten free beer options. And this wasn't even including cider or the dreaded Redbridge. Not only did they carry the multiple brands I have looked up, but they also carried bands that I had never heard of an am so excited to try. Then he asked if I had considered Mead... really hadn't thought about it, but it was a GREAT suggestion. He showed me the selection and suggested a few that were worth trying.

So very helpful. So very friendly. And while I went in intending to buy one type of Gluten Free Beer, I left with a few. In addition, he did not carry a Pumpkin Cider I had read about and is contacting his Harpoon Distributer to see what he can get on hand.

As long as I am in Charlotte, this will be where I buy my Gluten Free Beer... and Mead... and cider.

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.
