I heard that this location recently started selling beer, so I decided to stop by and check it out. Like all places in SC that sell both wine/beer and spirits the place is separated into two sides; liquor/spirits on one side and beer/wine on the other. Most of the floor space is devoted to wine, but there is one wall and a couple of small displays set aside for craft beer. They also have a four tap growler station, and they seem to rotate some very good beers relatively quickly. The selection is decent, especially when you consider that they have only been selling beer at all for a few months.

I spoke to the person behind the counter (manager, I think) for a while; very nice guy that seemed to indicate that they would like to be the go to place in the Rock Hill/Fort Mill area for limited release and rarer beers.

The selection was fair, picked up a couple of 4 packs of FBS and some other decent stuff while there. The pricing seemed to be on par with most other beer stores in the area. I'll be keeping my eye on this place to see how things go.

The store is clean and well-lit, and the staff is friendly and always readily available for questions and assistance. While the stock isn't huge (I'd estimate < 120 varieties in 6-packs), the selection is all good stuff. Plus, they carry a respectable selection of 22 oz. bombers and have a growler station with 4 taps. (In addition, they have a wide selection of wines, and liquor is sold in the adjoining section.)

Now, for some, this is small potatoes; but for Rock Hill this is a really good store. In the past, to find an interesting selection of craft beers and a rotating stock of seasonal brews, I'd have to drive a dozen miles up the interstate. I hope they'll eventually be able to expand, but, for now, it's my go-to store for craft beers.

I stumbled upon the place on the web after a beerfly search of Rock Hill turned up a measly 2 results. There are 3 locations however only the Riverchase Rd. location sells beer. Luckily this place is right on the Rock Hill/Fort Mill border, so is close to my house. They advertised doing growler fills so I wandered in with my wife and was pleasantly surprised. They have a 4 tap growler station and a large wall with a solid craft selection. Prices are very competitive from what I noticed. On the growler station they had Duck Rabbit Milk Stout, Abita Triple Haze, Oskar Blues G'Knight, and RJ Rockers Black Perle. I ended up with a growler of G'Knight for $12.99, which if you look at the per ounce price compared to the cans, is a great deal. The gentleman helping didnt seem to know much about beer, but said they had only started selling beer about a month ago. Regardless, he was very helpful. I will be back!
