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.

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.

Not much to look at from the outside, but a very good selection of brews. The service was very good as well. The person who helped me seemed like a real craft beer nut and enjoyed his job, it showed....Well worth a stop when in town.

Originally reviewed: 9/24/10. I was in town for business for a few days and this place was at the top of my list to visit. The building is red now, not gray, so don’t go by the picture when looking for this. The owner Mike was not around when I was there. At a wine tasting or something. But there was a very friendly woman behind the counter. Very helpful and cheery. Chatted with her for a bit. As is the tradition, since this was my first visit I got to pick any glass I wanted for free. For some reason, I thought it was a mug only, but I grabbed a sweet Allagash stemmed glass. Love it. Very nice gesture. The selection, in all honesty, isn’t as great as I thought it was going to be. They had a good number of special beers, most notably their Belgian section. But overall, this place didn’t blow me away. Maybe City Beverage has spoiled me some. The prices were all pretty good. Some cheaper than I can get here, but some more $. They also carried a good German selection which was cool. I will come back here each and every time I am back in town. Nice store.

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.

How is it that I never rated this place? It’s been a little over a year since I’ve been but this place was wonderful. I defiantly had sort of a "is this the place" reaction to it that I think most folks have when I pulled up. It’s sort of like Archer in Chicago where it looks like a corner liquor store on the outside but has an excellent selection inside. Everything is well tended to and it doesn’t look like any of the beer was sitting around too long. I got a bottle of Smuttynose Wheat Wine at about half price because it was "old". The folks who work here are very friendly and I had a nice time visiting with them both times I was in. They even gave me a Saison Dupont glass because it was my first time coming. Generous, knowledgeable, fairly priced store, with a very good selection of beers... it’s hard to ask for anything more.
