Well, it's a grocery store, so no vibe...the staff is friendly, but no one spoke to me in the beer section. Which, by the way, had the best beer selection of any grocery store I've been to in SC

Nice section dedicated to craft beer. Lots of options including a lot of imports. It took a while to hunt someone down though....had to go to the deli to get someone paged.

Note that while they do not break open packs, they have a small selection of singles.

So let me start with this... It's a grocery store. In Myrtle Beach. But, that said, it is, without a doubt, THE best selection of craft beer in Myrtle Beach. I drove all the way from Cherry Grove to shop here, and was not disappointed. Let's be honest- it's Myrtle Beach- so the selection of craft beer is EXTREMELY limited, but if you're willing to drive an hour just to find a decent beer to take to the beach, THIS IS YOUR SPOT! It's got a decent, wide selection of craft brews from all over, from the far left coast, to local brews, to Maine- (I was shocked to score two bottles of Maine Beer Co "Peeper Ale" & a bottle of their Porter), as well as a wide variety of Stillwater & Evil Twin brews, Avery barrel aged stouts, and even some Anchor Brewing stuff from California (where I'm from) that I'd never seen before. But be warned- some of this stuff had been sitting on the shelf for a WHILE, so choose carefully. I grabbed a sixer of southern tier 2x Smash only to find it had been bottled over 5 months ago. But, if you must have craft beer, this is the widest selection you will find. Trust me, I looked.

Stellar selection in a city that is a tourist trap. If you're a real beer person, just go here and save the hassle of checking out the other bottle shops. You will find SOMETHING here.

I was in Myrtle Beach recently for vacation and when doing my research on where to buy beer discovered that this was the best place. So I was pretty excited to visit this world class beer destination. Unfortunately, it's not exactly a world class shop. I was able to find some good beer, the store area is clean, and the one staff member I interacted with was nice. It's a good store and worth a visit but nothing remarkable.

Vibe - It's a grocery store, but it's the best display I've seen in a grocery store. Byrd is generous, knowledgeable and friendly.

Quality - Top notch in cleanliness, service, and selection.

Service - See above. Byrd is the man. If there's ever a TV show called, "beer store revival", he should be the dude that trains the staff.

Selection - I made a 2 hour round trip 3 times in two weeks from NC to make sure I didn't miss anything. Came home very happy. You won't find anything better in Myrtle.

This is exactly the type of place I like to buy beer at --great selection, great people, and a local, high quality grocer feel that totally destroys your typical alcohol warehouse or bottle shop environment.

Byrd is an awesome guy--completely helpful, connected with the beer scene in Myrtle Beach, and has pulled stuff from the back he just got in for us a few times. Hundreds of choices well organized on shelves and in coolers. Six-tap growler station is typically very good, occasionally immense in terms of sheer awesomeness (KBS, Mexican Cake, Hopslam, Enjoy By, aged Evil Twin brews, draught only Allagash/Oskar Blues stuff, etc.). Byrd frequently gets new stuff and rotates his bottle and tap selections. Prices have been consistently fair--good, in fact, especially compared to shops in my home state. Lots of nice sales, too.

Here's a sample of what I picked up the last time I was down in South Carolina:

COAST Boy King DIPA (growler!)
2013 Southern Tier Choklat (also growler!)
Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break (also growler!)
Stone/Beachwood/Heretic Unapologetic IPA (growler? oh yeah!)
Maine Beer Co. Lunch IPA
Westbrook Citrus Ninja Exchange DIPA
Trappistes Rochefort 10
Bell's Two Hearted Ale (cans!)

Awesome stuff. Bottom line: if the brewery you're looking for distributes in SC, the Pig will most likely stock 'em (or they'll get 'em). I've also struck up conversations with really cool, down-to-earth beer peeps here, and I've never left disappointed. Hard to beat that.
