I Love this place!!This is the place real beer drinkers go to drink and hangout. The community table in the middle of the shop allows people of different backgrounds to sit and share stories or discuss beer (which is what usually happens). All in all Salud doesn't get the same commercial exposure as other beer stores in Charlotte but it is by far the best.

Jason, the owner, is a down to earth guy who treats you like a friend from the moment you walk in. He is very knowledgeable about beer and does not act like one of these stuck up self proclaimed beer know it alls. He carries various types of beer that you usually don't see in other stores.

If you like good quality beer, good people, and want to be treated like part of the family go to Salud.

Just passing through Charlotte.. stopped in for some NC beer. Spoke to the bartender, who came out from behind the bar to show me various selections of quick selling beer, and what he liked as well. He was spot on!! I wish I had known how good some of these beers were going to be, I'd have bought more of them.. SERIOUSLY!

So, I rated this a perfect 5. It is a small bottle shop in the NoDa neighborhood of Charlotte. The selection is one of the best in town. You're able to meet up with a buddy, enjoy some beer on draft (or from the fridge), and just hang out. The staff are knowledgable and eager to assist you (or just strike up a conversation with you about beer, old school hip hop, or the Charlotte Hornets). You're able to bring in bottles to share with other customers. My favorite shop in Charlotte and I will definitely be back.

Great place to stop in grab a beer, while you browse for additional beers to take home.

So glad I made the detour to stop here while passing through Charlotte. Looks like a place that I would frequent if I lived in the area. Cool vibe going on, my kind of music, and a wide array of bottles to choose from. There is also about 8-10 (?) taps going for tastes or growler fills. I picked up several bottles of Wicked Weed as well as a recommendation of Burial's Scythe Rye IPA. The guys working there were very helpful. Definitely make a stop if you go through Charlotte.

A very fine selection of bottles, including a sour section. Beers from a bunch of national breweries, a good selection of local brews, and even some selections from my neck of the woods. The options did seem somewhat random, though, but I'm only seeing what sits or was sitting on the shelf.

What was on the shelf was without a doubt, quality stuff. Can't speak to all of the local stuff, but the wider distribution stuff was far from flagship-only; definitely thug easing this place gets seasonal and special releases.

The place is medium in size, and we were in on a rainy slow day. They are apparently adding food, but were awaiting final approval for that side of the business. Once we started chatting with the bartender (of about 10 tap offerings), we found a friendly attitude and helpful nature. The place was fairly laid back, but did have a feeling that you'd be better off if you were in-the-know, which is neither good nor bad.

I can see why this place is so well regarded online here. Selection and quality quite high, friendly staff, grab a brew as to shop for some - quite nice.
