This is the best beer store/warehouse I've ever been to. It's the kind of store that will have what you are looking for, or all you have to do is talk to management and they can get you hooked up with a little time. I drove from Greenville to Myrtle Beach every weekend to visit family, and along the way I ALWAYS made a point to stop here.

Large selection, helpful staff. The beer here seems to be fresher than the Green's up in Greenville, but maybe it's just the bottles I happened to pick. Still, I may be on to something, because other reviewers seem to mirror my impressions.

My favorite place to shop for beer in SC. Wes is a great dude and keeps all the important things in stock. They are always loaded with Westbrook and other SC brews. There is also an awesome cellar where you can find all sorts of nice treats from around the world. Very easily located off 26 which makes it impossible not to stop.

FIrst of all the staff is amazing. They are friendly, knowledgeable, beer fanatics and way over the top helpful! They had my head spinning with the selection available. I found some De Cam Lambieks just sitting in their fancy wine chiller. They threw out all the wine and stuffed it with amazing sours and belgians (nevermind though, because they're wine selection is ludicrous, too). The selection was truly overwhelming. Sierra is really friendly and she enjoys talking about beer. Wes is truly a gentleman. He is patient, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about beer- exotics and rarities. He hosts tastings and he never leaves anyone out! They've always got time for everybody. It's not so bad having to work out here in South Carolina so long as these guys are around. Prost!

Nice selection of Belgiums and Lambics in the walk in cellar. Four aisles of craft brews in singles and multi-packs. Also has the usual giant selection of Buds and American by the cases. Usually have 10 taps for Growlers...and usually a wide selection for anyone's taste. And don't forget to check out the small singles rack up front towards the sometimes houses singles you cannot find elsewhere.
Most of the staff is knowledgeable...aside from the cashiers who usually couldn't care less. I'm certain that the cashiers are the only place that Greens lacks in the customer service department.

This is the place where, after drinking 'beer' for 30 years, I finally discovered what real beer is and learned to love it. Their twice to three-times a week tastings regularly include brewmasters from the best regional and national breweries from the Southeast to Maine to Washington to anywhere that amazing beers are brewed. The brewers will spend all the time in the world talking to anyone who shows up. They recognize how special Greens is and actually listen to and stay in contact with the customers they meet And these brewers often bring special batches unavailable anywhere else in the world just for the incredibly lucky folks who know and love Greens and attend the tastings. Their 24 tap growler station fully rotates more than once a week, and the Beer Gurus Wes and Joseph never fail to guide and teach beer lovers of all tastes and experience. They'll even change out a tap on request if they have a special beer in the cooler if you simply ask if they have it. Greens has stoked the fire for beer lovers in South Carolina. And thanks to their innovation and effort several spectacular breweries have blossomed across South Carolina and in Columbia making the area a virtual beer heaven.

Note: I tried to keep this review low-key and held back on how I really feel for this place!

favorite beer store in SC, partly cause its my beer store. wes and joseph do a great job with any questions you have. have a nice large inventory and a solid grolwer station. carry all locals and a nice little back "cellar" for your belguims and lambics. if your in the area stop by it will be worth your time.

Very good place with a huge selection. I have gotten many rares there, such as SNR10, Black note, and even a westveltreen Blonde. I have to say, overall It's probably one of the best places in the Columbia South Carolina area. Also the staff that works there is very knowledgeable.

Green's on Piney Grove is the best place for purchasing beers in the city, probably one of the better spots in the state. They get lots of great stuff in, sell it at a good price, and acquire many rare brews, to boot.

Recent improvements (to an already great store) include a Belgian beer cellar, and a 24-tap growler fill station. They keep tons of premium stuff on the growler station and are constantly rotating selections. They also have tastings Thursday & Friday nights, often featuring rare kegs, brewery tap-takeovers, and free glasses w/fill.

Wes and Sierra are fantastic beer geeks who take good care of their customers. A few cashiers there don't seem to care, but otherwise the service is great and there is always at least one personable and caring cashier on duty.
