Great little bottle shop - been hitting this place for years. They've got five or six massive coolers full of good choices, as well as room temp specialty brews. They've also got beer on draft - around 8 pulls if memory serves - and usually very good stuff. The vibe is very cool - bit of a dive - they've got very good food too, sandwiches are awesome. Last year they had a four year vertical of Sexual Chocolate on draft - so they have some neat events & creative draft choices. Check 'em out.

Great place with friendly people. People of all kind, from professional, urban, goth, reggae, hippish, just an eclectic mix. Place can get a little crowded but the beer is usually cold and a decent selection of bottles or drafts on tap.
Food is very good here with a collection of sandwiches, soups, dips or for any dietary type and needs.
Take a trip through and check out the unique beers offered, usually any beer even special releases are put out and available while they last. The store also has an eclectic mix of other items, you just need to look around.

I was surprised by this place: was expecting a traditional pub but walked into an old fashioned general store that heppened to have six outstanding local taps flowing alongside an excellent selection of bottled beers in the retail store section--which you can pour and drink there if so inclined. There's also a deli with solid sandwiches if you're hungry. Indoor and outdoor seating is very casual and the croud (late Friday afternoon in late Sept) was diverse and social. I was solo and enjoyed a tuna sandwich and three delicious pints of IPA and PA while soaking up the fun vibe and the $3-4 pints.

CM is definitely a unique spot and I can see how people might not "get it" on their first visit. They have done a remarkable job with selection given the space that they are working with. If you spend some time poking around you will see that they have a cellar section, 5-6 coolers with bombers and 6ers. As far as service, if you ask for Jason or Tom you will find them to be very knowledgeable and helpful. They have 6 taps or so that are usually pouring something local and interesting and you can enjoy one as you shop or get something to eat from the Deli. Its worth mentioning that they do probably the best job in Charlotte of keeping people up to speed on new releases via social media (facebook, charlotte beer club) and have a tasting every Wednesday night that pulls in people from all walks of life. CM might not be the prettiest lady but she puts out every time and that is what makes it such a great part of the CLT beer scene.
