Been following the Charleston BX newsletter for over a year now, drooling at the new selections and growlers. Now I'm finally close enough to drive down to Greenville from Clemson

Quality: Very high turnover (something which is rare in the upstate and Greenville area) - kegs always fresh, excellent growler selections, and the store itself is awesomely laid out

Service: Zack and Cam are beyond friendly and helpful...both BA's as well. Awesome service, very quick, very knowledgeable

Selection: Cantillion (Lou Pepe/ Rose etc!) and other sours, Bell's, Founders, Foothills, Terrapin, COAST, Sweetwater nuff said...rare/limited release included. Check the website for continuously updated selections

Definitely the best beer store I've been to, highly recommended

Extremely good service and great selection. Very nice selection from local to US to international. Prices are competitive. Growler station that also serves pints. The gent onsite will walk you through everything in the store, location wise, type/style, and their recommendations - very knowledgeable and very friendly. Would recommend stopping in.

Excellent selection (they actually had Maine Beer Co on tap x2!). Growler station. Devin is very knowledgeable and helpful. It is a small space downtown full of beers with only 3 or 4 tables so the "vibe" rating doesn't really seem applicable, though it was laid back and cool. I'll go back for sure.

Online order, so vibe doesn't really apply.
From photos, you can see the densely packed dark wood shelves hold lots of variety, with clearly marked prices. In one corner is a growler fill tap station with 16 draft beers listed on a chalkboard above.

Selection was good, and they update their inventory online. SC locals from Birds Fly South, Freehouse, Revelry, Carolina Bauernhaus, and more. Deep import selection with many obscure labels, including a couple dozen Belgian lambics.

I had emailed them about a few local things and they got back to me right away, but a week passed before confirming the order. It took 5 business days from payment to receive the box. Not the fastest turnaround, but it was well packed in a sturdy styro shipper. All in all I was satisfied with the experience, and would order again, and hopefully will stop in someday.

If you're not familiar with the area, this place could be difficult to find. Really small shop, big selection. Their selection was excellent, but nothing different than what I could find in Simpsonville. Prices seemed fair. They do growler fills and the tap list was great. If you're in the area, it's worth the stop.

This place can be a pain in the arse to find, but well worth the effort. Parking is best in one of the nearby garages - I lucked out and parked in front, but could stay only 15 minutes. Service is first-rate - the fellow pointed me straight to some excellent South Carolina brews, and managed to get me out in time. He even came after me when I left my oh-so-important beers tried list hardcopy behind - extra point there! Prices appear to be reasonable. I hope that next time I visit Greenville I can spend more time in this great beer boutique.

Cool little place downtown, good selection of uncommon local stuff, growler fills, Thursday tasting...the staff can be a little condescending, but that's to be expected when you're not a regular customer

Best craft beer store in Greenville. Devin and Andrew are both super knowledgable and helpful and will help everyone find the perfect beer for their tastes. Also has the best selection of foreign beers in the whole state. I've been to other beer stores in other states and when they hear that I am from Greenville they don't even bother showing me the foreign section because it's not as good as GBX. Worth going out of your way to find.

Great selection of domestics and imports. Lots of "famous names" I haven't seen in other places. Staff was helpful, if not eager. Good glassware to choose from, and beer was fresh, too.
