Looks small and dumpy from the outside, but somewhat better on the inside. They’ve managed to cram some quality beers into a rather small space. Service was really outstanding -- this guy knows his beer. Some singles available, but not more than a handful.

You can tell by all the single digit reviewers this place is definely benefitting from some home team scoring. The construction in the parking lot matters less than the fact that much of the shop was not particularly tidy. The selection is solid but I didn’t see much I haven’t seen at 20 other bottle shops in this state. It’s true the service is friendly and the prices are reasonable but a top 10 NC destination. Not a chance.

Passing through Charlotte, I just had to stop by and see what all the fuss was about. Dahyum! Michael knows his beers and even provided a weary traveller with a couple of hard to find gems! We traded info and will continue to trade beers long distance. Highly recommended !

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.
