Brawley’s Beverage is the best store in the city. Even with it being quite a haul for me to get there, I would much rather shop here than anywhere else. No matter who is working the counter, you will always get friendly and knowledgeable service. The selection is 2nd to none in the state.

Mike is the sh@t for real. This guys is an OG in the Carolina beer scene, the first shop to open in the QC after the cap was popped in 2005. Big expansion is going on right now so big things for Mike and company soon. Always a friendly face and assistance available. Some of the rare releases will only be sold to regulars, but IMO thats how it should be at small shops. He only gets a very small amount of these beers, if you choose to by the rest of your beer at Harris Teeter and only come around for the one offs then good luck, support gives support end of story.

Looks can be deceiving, Brawleys is going through a renovation which in time will make it THE beer destination in Charlotte. Once you walk inside it is akin to walking into a secret stash of brews. The owner is about as knowledgeable as there is, tells you what is great, good, and not worth your time (depending on expertise and $$$ value). Single bottles aren’t well represented but their six packs are respectable (Bells, Founders, NoDa, etc.) but Brawleys has the rare and special bomber list covered. Epic, Stillwater, Bruery, Evil Twin, Stone, New Belgium, Lagunitas, etc. Solid list of imports, including Old Dubh, Rodenbacher, loads of sours, special age scotch ales and vintage barleywines. The place also specializes in carrying limited release and small batch local brews. Kegs of really heady stuff are available as well. Everything I found in the store was 3.7 rated or above, sans for new release beers with minimal ratings. If you are in the Charlotte area for any reason, please, do yourself a favor and check this place out. I’m from WV and am already planning a return trip soon.

Brawley’s by far is the best place in Charlotte to buy beer. They are the first in the state of NC to get any of the specialty brews. They get all Dogfish, Allagash, Delirium, new Unibrew’s, ect products before anyone else in the state. This makes them the go to place. Unlike most package stores in NC; the owner, Michael Brawley, understands and has the knowledge of his brands in order to help you make the right descision. Not only is his selection vastly large enough to suit any beer geek, his pricing makes the trip well worth to Charlotte. Keep up the great work.

This place has beers you won't find anywhere else in Charlotte. Hands down best beverage shop in the city, by far. Friendliest service of any retail space also. Very knowledgable staff, always a good recommendation if in need.

The owner was in when I stopped by (and his dog). The selection of beer was excellent. The service was top notch. The owner had an in depth knowledge (i.e. beer geek) of the beer in his store, and beer in general. Had some great recommendations. The free glass at the end was a definate plus. I will visit this place any time I’m around charlottle. A+
