This is a new beer shop that opened a few weeks ago in NoDa. The owner Jason is very friendly and knowledgeable. He has 6 taps of great stuff. Mostly bombers and singles for sale with a limited number of 6 packs. Lots of great choices and some beers you dont see at the larger box stores. Prices are a bit higher than you might find at Total Wine but they do a lot more volume so I can see why. There is a small patio area as well as a sitting area in the front and a bar that can seat maybe 5 or 6. This place has a great neighborhood vibe to it. Lots of great conversation while enjoying a beer. Salud fits right into the neighborhood.

only made it here once during my visit to Charlotte this summer. Fine spot for a wide variety of bottle available both at room temp and cold. Also there is a moderate amount of draft pours for consumption on premises. Owner was friendly and full of general and local beer info. They sell a moderate selection of snacks/salsa/sauces etc. But you go here for the quality BA worthy beer options. Well worth a visit if you are local or visiting. A cool beer boutique in a fun and funky neighborhood. Go and enjoy

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!

Salud is a little shop of a style which I've never really experienced until I got to Charlotte where there seemed to be a few. Salud being the coolest of the bunch. It's a little store on the corner of a nondescript little line of storefronts. Stepping inside you're immediately greeted by what I would call a small lounge area. A couple couches and chairs make for a small seating area. Both walls are lined with bottles for sale, lots of local NC stuff along with a shelf unit in the middle of the store. Heading toward the back, the checkout counter is to the left and a small 5-6 seat bar off to the right. It's cozy and loaded with goodies. Like being in a friend's basement for a couple beers. Music is jamming at a level loud enough to hear but quiet enough to speak over. I seem to recall Ghostface...

The owner was tending bar and taking care of the shop while we were visiting. He was ready to talk at the drop of a hat. Cool guy, letting us know what's new, talking about some plans for a possible expansion, and giving us all types of tips on Charleston, SC. There were 6 or 7 people shopping around and drinking when I stopped in and they all seemed to know each other to some degree. 10 taps were pouring, all written on a chalkboard behind the bar, mostly local stuff, but a couple out of state selections as well. Growlers are filled and inexpensive. The service was great, selection very well thought out, and the vibe was right on; comfortable and fun. I can't recommend Salud highly enough.

Cool vibe, two levels, two bars, solid bottle selection, nice employees, lots of room to relax and great food. Try the chicken and waffle sandwich!!

Corner of the building behind the Cajun place in NoDa. A neat old brick store front. Looks like the owners are from my neck of the woods, Michigan. Solid mix of local, national and import craft. Sixers and singles. Though you may need to really pick through the coolers to make sure you don't miss something. Or you could just ask the workers, they were helpful and well aware of what was in there. They do seem to get a good bit of hard to find/low volume stuff.

I think they had room for about 8 drafts, they seem to rotate quickly because of the small bar area and nice late hours. Usually some real nice stuff on tap. A chill atmosphere compared to the other more bar like atmospheres in the area. One tv, but mostly it has the sound off and the noise is people talking.

Something that was needed in this part of town I believe. Brawleys-esque. I like it.

Great little bottle shop where you can get an awesome beer on tap while you peruse their awesome bottle selection. Prices are a bit high for bottles but they have stuff I can't find elsewhere.

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.

The two things that draw me to this particular beer store: location and 8 rotating taps.
They always have superb beers on tap, a lot seasonals. I had Hopslam on draft here a week ago.
Their location, in the NoDa neighborhood of Charlotte, is great for grabbing a beer or two, and then barhopping. There are several bars/restaurants with great draft lists to check out within walking distance.
The store is rather small with a limited selection, but it is very organized and the quality of the selection is great.

For an independent beer shop Salud stands out among others. Their location is obviously an advocate of alcohol appreciation. The owner seems to have a wealth of knowledge regarding various stlyes and has a plethora of advice onto which beer to try next. I am currently drinking the beer that he has suggested to my friend and I and he was spot on with all his suggestions. The beer selection is very comprehensive and thorough as well and interesting. The "bar" is complete with countless empties and beer drinking accroudeme. Also there is a certain manly aspect of being allowed to drink your beer from draught and pick out the beer that your are taking home at the same time. Topped of with a NES system in the front and this is a go to place for Charlotte, NC beer drinkers with an appetite for adventure.

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.
